This midterm, I was astounded how none of the Democratic leadership took a role in promoting what the party stood for and this is why the GOP successfully used the label of a “mob.”
Leaderless, messageless, the group looks like pitchforks and torches.
This is the failing of the Democrats -- no strong leadership, no national unifying message.
2018 was not a vote for Democrats. It was a vote to stop the GOP freight train off the cliff. It was unchanneled anger AWAY from something, not toward a goal.
Why was there not a healthcare platform promoted in the midterm that candidates publicly supported? “If elected, I support the Democrats proposal of 2019 Healthcare Reform Act.”
There was no social media push by the Dems. Look at the Twitter feeds for House and Senate Dems.
