Less than a year from 2022 midterms, polling shows that the Democratic party's "entire brand" is "a wreck" 👀

Nov 26th

Joe Biden's victory in 2020 was supposed to represent a backlash to Donald Trump that would usher in a new era of Democratic ascendancy.

Instead, even Democratic voters increasingly can't stand their own freaking party:

In the days after the Democratic Party's collapse in the Virginia governor's race, party strategists descended on the commonwealth to figure out what went wrong and understand just how bad the national outlook might be next year.

What they discovered, largely through focus groups and polling, was even worse than expected. The problems cut far deeper than the failings of their gubernatorial nominee, Terry McAuliffe, or President Joe Biden's flagging approval ratings. Rather, the Democratic Party's entire brand was a wreck.

"Voters couldn't name anything that Democrats had done, except a few who said we passed the infrastructure bill," the center-left group Third Way and its pollsters said in a report, obtained first by POLITICO, on focus groups they ran in Virginia.

I'm sorry, voters could name nothing that the Democratic party has done?! That's just ridiculous. They've done plenty! Including:

  1. Significantly drive up inflation, including gas and grocery prices.
  2. Implement and aggressively pursue authoritarian vaccine mandates.
  3. Advocate for parents to be barred from having any say over their kids' educations.
  4. Sow racial divisions that continually threaten to tear the country apart.
  5. Ram through an expensive boondoggle of an "infrastructure bill."

I bet plenty of voters are aware of these momentous accomplishments by the Democratic party, if even unconsciously.

All we can say is, Democrats, keep it up, you're doing great!
