I'm not so sure about "doomed," though. I still think a surge in black and possibly Latino voting is possible with the right candidate--Biden or Sanders not being that candidate (though Brown + Harris could have been pretty awesome).
Sanders is the best candidate to maximize youth turnout including Latinos who are disproportionately younger.

And your economic views are to the right of Nelson Rockefeller and probably Dick Nixon as well. The problem isn't Trump's protectionist and economic nationalist instincts which to a degree are healthy, especially with regards to China but that he's going about implementing trade policy in the worst possible way .
