Democrats are sounding growing alarms in the final push before the midterm elections that the party lacks the message it needs to combat President Trump and win back Democratic majorities in Congress.
“We haven’t had a real message since the last presidential election, so why change it now?” said Democratic strategist Chris Kofinis. “We had no message in 2016. We had no message in between. We have no message going into this election … You have to give people a reason to vote for you, not a reason to vote against someone else.
“In terms of a Democratic Party having even a semblance of a message, it’s just not there and that’s the reason this election is going to be unpredictable,” said Kofinis. “Nobody should be surprised if it’s a good night or a bad night.”
It is hard to believe that screaming RUSSIA! RUSSIA! for 2 straight years isn’t a winning message.
Constant worrying about Russian hacking of the election is widespread. Yet numerous examples of voter suppression eg Georgia and more recently Kansas go uncorrected.
Bernie has been talking “Medicare for All” till he is blue in the face.
Yet so called leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have yet neglected to get on board.
