Dems Warn Party That Their Messaging Stinks

Might be a little to late to reconsider what their messaging is

Dems warn party message lacks punch

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.

Some of the comments are positively biting, and illustrate that nerves are on edge less than two weeks before Election Day.

They also hint at the fights that will take place if Democrats under-perform and fail to at least win back the House majority, which would count as a significant disappointment at this stage.

“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.”

Democrats think they have a good chance of retaking the House majority despite these problems given the fact that their voting base is fired up to send a message to Trump.

Polls have tightened, however, and there is a recognition that Trump has started to fire up his own base. The narrow path the Democrats once saw for a Senate majority has largely disappeared.

“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.”

The main focus for Democrats is that they Hate Trump. Besides what’s in the graphic above, we can add make sure there are zero restrictions on abortion on demand as well as implement measures that make citizens more reliant on Government, such as through carbon taxes and Single Payer health care/insurance. Does it resonate positively when they reflexively take the side of MS-13 when President Trump denounces them?

Democratic leaders are quick to reject the notion that their message lacks the bite to resonate with voters. Discarding a focus on the president — a focus thought to have backfired in 2016 —their “For the People” agenda features just three broad promises: lowering health care costs, boosting wages and fighting government corruption. It’s those issues, they contend, that voters care most about.

“People ask what are the Democrats for? We are for the people, for lowering their healthcare costs by reducing the cost of prescription drugs. We are for bigger paychecks by building infrastructure of America and we are for better government by reducing the role of money in politics,” Pelosi said Monday.

It’s a cute slogan, but, other than pimping Single Payer, what they usually refer to as Medicaid For All, do you ever hear Democrats talking about this stuff?

Yet Democrats are not all on the same page when it comes to the election-year approach to the president. Ignoring Trump, they argue, is to ignore the elephant in the room.

“There’s one issue in this election: Donald Trump. That is it,” Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.) told The Hill recently. “And this election is about whether the country is going to vote for a mid-course correction.”

He’s about the only honest one, because that’s all Democrats care about: their Trump Derangement Syndrome. Doing things like rolling back the economic progress made under Trump and so much more.

    Just think about item 2 in the graphic.

    “Ronald Reagan and I will both raise your taxes. He won’t tell you. I just did”.

    Worst electoral blowout in American history November 6, 1984

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.

    Everyone says that the Democrats are going to take over the house. Lets hope not for the sanity of America. But then one of the things about polling is that almost everyone of them is run by leftist organizations who want so desperately to win. Many have been caught over sampling the Democrats while undersampling the GOP to skew their poll for a favorable leftist candidate.

    When I look at the polling I see this happening again in many polls. Not all. but many. We will see.

    I think its still looking like the GOP picks up 2-5 seats in the senate and If the polling is like it was in 2016 they hold the house. If its accurate they might lose 30 seats, which would honestly be perplexing given the lefts antics over the last two years but oh well you get what you pay for and right now the democrats and their legion of billionaires are outspending the right by a 3 to 1 margin.

      Looks like a red wave rout… the GOP will keep a large margin in the House and add to the Senate. And keep the Govs too.

      Advice to conservative voters is don’t even waste your time voting… this one is in the bag!

      Spend your spare time upgrading the locks on your home to keep out the caravaners that get past the military.

        Yes, because even Jeffery has to admit most of them are coming to take whatever they can steal.

        They better start with Kevlar vests because Conservatives are armed.

        Lefties have Gun Free Zone signs.

    One of Apples lead designers was fired recently for sending out an email asking for APPLE to make the work place less “PATRIARCHAL” and more woman friend. he was accused of being a mysoginist and fired. He was arguing straight out of the feminist playbook. Literally word for word.

    The consensus opinion is that a leftist is afraid to speak what they think. Trump voters are afraid to speak out in fear of retribution. Their are way fewer signs in yards this election cycle. People are afraid of being targeted by Antifa like thugs.

    I am expecting a red wave at the polls next week but we will see. Even the walk away movement are being targeted by leftists who are simply saying what this post says. The democrats have no message, no agenda other than to hate on Trump and run him out of office.

    so here is how that will work. When Trump is run out of office the next Democratic president will face the EXACT same bullshit as our Constitutionally elected president. The minute the GOP takes the house. The impeachment proceedings will begin. Tit for Tat. It started with Reagan and has not stopped since.

    OMG. They showed a picture of the bombers van parked under video surveillance cameras.

    Then Voilla they showed the same van a few days later and guess what. ALL OF THE DECALS NO LONGER MATCHED THOSE TAKEN BY THE ORIGINAL SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS. OMG they changed the decals on the van to be even more hateful and partisan and/or the news media photocropped the VAN to make it appear that way.

    EITHER WAY either the BROWARD COUNTRY POLICE…IN BED WITH DEMOCRATS OR THE PRESS have totally screwed the pooch in their pathetic attempt to make this guy appear as a deranged Trump supporter.

    God. Is their nothing the MSM and Democrats wont do for power? The guy hated trump, railed against the right and trump….Yet he is being portrayed as a trump supporter.

    Reason 10001 to not vote for a democrat this election cycle.

      Dude, try these on for size.

      From the Sayoc family lawyer, who also used to be the Fall Guy’s lawyer.

      He never seems sophisticated enough to do something like he’s accused of. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that there were others others [sic] who helped prod or encouraged him to do this, or that the bombs in fact were so crudely made, they never could have worked. He didn’t seem to have the intellectual capacity to plan a conspiracy like this in my opinion.

      And this from The Times of Israel notes Sayoc would often express hatred for minorities, Jews and gays, groups that Trump obviously loves.

      You have to filter out the AP stuff, which was picked up by the WaPo, but this guy was really out there.

      And, no, I didn’t realize the collages changed. Good point. I think this is bombing (no pun) like Dr Evil’s invasion (and it’s his) and the crucifixion of Brother Bret.
