Just nine months down the line from capturing the White House and the legislative branch, Democratic lawmakers are worried about their candidacy, as they find themselves at the losing end if the midterm elections were held right now.
The victory of President Biden in the 2020 elections was indebted to the swing voters who saw his agenda as revolutionary.
However, as Democrats are still drifting away from Joe Biden‘s agenda, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney, the chair of the Democratic congressional campaign committee, has warned that they are vulnerable to lose the majority should they not set their priorities right.
Sean Patrick Maloney’s closed-door meeting with the vulnerable Democrats, attended by Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well, is a sign to worry for the party as they can put the whole party at risk.
Facing a sweeping defeat in the bipartisan infrastructure bill and the inability to tackle the propaganda against them, Democrats needs to course-correct themselves if they want to keep their majority intact.
Liberals are cooking the disaster recipe for Democrats as they are going against popular narrative, Maloney suggests.
Vulnerable Democrats Can Lose the Party Congress Majority in the 2022 Midterm Elections
The battleground states will be a treat to watch once again in the next election cycle, with too many voters undoing the choices they made in the last elections.
As Democrats trail by half a dozen points to Republicans in the generic ballot, the stakes are high for them as a net loss of one seat in Senate will bring them into the minority in Senate.
Despite the fact that multiple Republicans are retiring before elections, Democrats’ declining popularity in the swing states raises alarms for the campaign team.
This is the reason why Sean Patrick Maloney has warned the vulnerable incumbents to put their priorities right or face the consequences in the next elections.
Progressives and the liberal faction of the party are riding a dangerous path. Whether it is about defunding the police or pursuing the Green New Deal to the full extent, or being too humane with the illegal immigrants from the Southern borders, the liberals’ agenda is making the Democrats’ election bid vulnerable in the upcoming elections.
According to reports, almost 70 percent of Americans do not want to defund police, and when they see the liberal faction talking in favor of it, it’s a big loss for Democrats.
When the former President Barack Obama opined that “snappy” slogans like “defund the police” is an instrument of losing people, i.e., voters, liberals went all bonkers. Ilhan Omar retaliated against the former president, saying that it is not a slogan but a policy option to reform the United States.
The former president was on point and opined as per the statistical data.
Liberals and Progressives are Exposing Democrats to Danger for the 2022 Elections
While Democrats fix their ranks, they also need to get their message right by illicit busting campaigns against themselves.
For instance, Democrats often fail to counter the propaganda against themselves, which they need to do at any cost to develop an all-inclusive winning strategy.
The same goes with liberals’ bid to increase government spending and social security nets that are also endangering Democrats for the next elections.
The fact that progressives like Ilhan Omar are proposing measures like the Support Act is one of the reasons why voters who are deeply inspired by capitalism can be offended, making their verdict against Democrats.
Promoting woke culture is no doubt an immediate necessity for Democrats; however, overemphasizing the matter can cost Democrats crucial votes.
While Democrats must not leave their efforts to promote equality, they need to rely on data to make sure that they are not offending a part of their voters to please others.
Political pundits are also opining along the same lines. Sean Patrick Maloney believes that if Democrats can talk more about economic recovery, providing relief to the average Americans, it could be their recipe for the next election win.
Curbing COVID and reopening the businesses lies the key to the next election for Democrats; failure to do so would bring them to their knees any time soon.
The fact that Democrats from liberal factions like Bernie Sanders, AOC, or Ilhan Omar often side by policies that are beneficial for the poorest section of the societies often reduces popular support for them.
On the other hand, the Republican party is in full swing to pull voters by leveraging on religious and conservative issues. This can impress swing voters who would never mind voting for them, compared to Democrats.
Public spending that can yield better results in the short term, like infrastructure deals, by giving jobs to the construction workers can do wonders for Democrats. As Democrats lose the message wars, they must reconsider their priorities.
Many centrist people voted for Democrats, and the liberal faction is enough to repel them in the near elections.
Today, when Sean Patrick Maloney is in the leading role of promoting the Democratic campaign in the US, he needs to ensure that he spreads this message to the liberal faction as well.
Any radical social change is bound to deliver drastic results, so the liberal faction needs to take one step at a time to change the country in the long run. Otherwise, they will be deprived of authority soon.
