But do US Democrats prefer snobbery to winning elections?

If so, they will tend to favour a putsch. From Ben Shapiro at Townhall:

Last weekend, Hillary Clinton spoke in India. There, she continued to struggle publicly with the most humiliating experience of her life, not her husband’s continual sexual misconduct or her State Department’s mishandling of Benghazi but her loss of the presidency to a reality television show host. Hillary’s not over it. And she never will be.

That much was obvious from her incredible, palpable anger at the American public. She first explained that Trump voters are stupid poor people: “what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.”More.

Reality check: Trashing the other side’s voters is such an elementary mistake that the fact that Clinton is allowed to go on making it indicates a leadership vacuum among the Dems (if not a delusional state). Picture the local Toyota salesman telling us that Ford buyers are “yokels.” Some may buy his pitch, on the theory that if they drop a few ten grand at his dealership, he, at least, won’t think they are yokels.

But what about the less committed?

Surely, a better pitch would be: “In my experience, Ford buyers are intelligent and they do their homework BUT there are a few things they are not aware of, including [sales pitch…sales pitch…sales pitch…]”

So the prospective customer never need feel put down, either way.

But now the big question: Why don’t the Dems see that? Do a majority of Americans feel the need to merely avoid being put down by somebody or other? Time will tell.
