But rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like jobs, wages and the cost of education and healthcare.

In the wake of a string of special-election defeats, an increasing number of Democrats are calling for an adjustment in party messaging, one that swings the focus from Russia to the economy. The outcome of the 2018 elections, they say, hinges on how well the Democrats manage that shift. 

“We can't just talk about Russia because people back in Ohio aren't really talking that much about Russia, about Putin, about Michael Flynn,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) told MSNBC Thursday. “They're trying to figure out how they're going to make the mortgage payment, how they're going to pay for their kids to go to college, what their energy bill looks like.  

“And if we don't talk more about their interest than we do about how we're so angry with Donald Trump and everything that's going on,” he added, “then we're never going to be able to win elections.”

I thought Pelosi said the democrats were going to win 1,200 seats in the mid-terms?

The democrats went to an auction for folding chairs and lost.

Meanwhile, Trump is the only person in Washington even voicing any of the concerns

those people have.  No wonder they keep losing.

Notice they don't say that the Russia thing isn't true. It's just that Joe Sixpack in middle America doesn't care. Even when they get it they don't get it.

I have heard many say that due to the Georgia loss (where they ran a moderate campaign), they need to go more progressive and left in their message.  Oh God please!!
Link Posted: 6/24/2017 12:20:33 PM EDT
No, they need to spend the next 3-1/2 years focusing on Russia.

It doesn't matter.  Many already understand but simply can't help themselves.  Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Wait until they discover Trump prefers Russian dressing on his burgers.

Forensic document experts proved that the so-called birth certificate was a clumsy forgery.

I'd say most of America on both sides of the aisle is tired of the DC political wars over nothing, especially when most of America seems to be the casualty of it.  Economy is still stagnant, insurance premiums skyrocketing, wages frozen, etc.

Regardless of the issue, nobody in DC seems to be focused on any sort of productive legislation (which Americans differ on what is productive of course) and totally focused on scoring points and securing more power for themselves.

We just had an election, Trump won, and people I think in general just want to see the Government function and then the people will weigh in in 2020 if they like the new direction or not.  All this shit about Russians nd Flynn is stupid.  I think most Americans are fairly sane and don't believe that the incoming President had an impeachable scandal brewing before he even took office.

Nah, the ignorant fly-over democrats just don't know what the country needs.  Just like blacks, they need to be told what is important by the elites.

The party of equality and inclusion.

The Dem's have a huge problem.  

The moderate wing of the Democrat Party - which could help them win elections - will be kept from power by the majority of ideologue Leftists currently in power.  However, that far Left message is getting its ass kicked around the country.   In all but the most Liberal of places, their message is rejected.  

Until they understand that they have drifted too far to the Left, they will continue to lose.

I heard David Brooks and EJ Dionne on NPR yesterday. Brooks (NPR's Trump-hating tame conservative) admitted the Russia thing is going nowhere and is a waste of time. Dionne is happy to keep digging though... I guess he hasn't got the message that nobody cares anymore.

She says that she is "worth the trouble." "A Master Legislator." I think so, too. She's worth it to me.
