If the Democrats were fighting a popularity contest in the country today, they would undoubtedly lose.
And that’s just what they should rightly be concerned about in terms of the 2018 midterm elections. But, as Fox & Friends’ Steve Doocy demonstrates, Democrats are going to have an uphill battle on their hands without a proactive, positive message to communicate to voters.
Right now, just about the only real message the Democrats have for their constituents is to “Resist Donald Trump’ — a refrain that’s already proven to essentially be a rallying cry defend the president rather than a call for rebellion that the party of the Left hoped it would be.
Despite prominent Democrats such as Hillary Clinton (shown here speaking at the 2017 Code Conference in Southern California) hoping her party can win the 24 seats necessary to regain a majority in the House of Representatives, the honest chances of it being able to do so — absent a major scandal or unforeseen event — are slim to none.
And while it’s true that the repeal or non-repeal of Obamacare will likely be a factor in next year’s election, at the heart of many state battles is the severe unpopularity of particular Democratic members of Congress. Watch as brothers Dallas Woodhouse (an executive director of the North Carolina Republican Party) and Brad Woodhouse (a Democratic strategist) debate this contentious issue.
