The New York Times might have been gloating for weeks on “Biden’s victory,” but the news outlet was finally forced to admit the left-wing party suffers crushing losses.
In a recently published post-election analysis, the House Democrats would most likely lose hold in Congress in 2021. Despite allocating hundreds of millions of dollars and deploying top party figures, including former President Barack Obama, the party suffered in key states on the legislative races.
The Democrats targeted several state legislative chambers, including Pennsylvania, Arizona, Texas, Minnesota, and North Carolina, which are strongholds of the Republicans. The left aims to check the power of the conservatives to redraw congressional and legislative districts in 2021.
However, the Democrats came short in all cases. None of the targeted legislative chambers flipped. It could then make it even harder for the Democrats to regain a majority in the lower chamber in 2022.
“One of the big questions is whether a Trumpist 2024 candidate can be a little bit milder so as not to alienate the suburbs, yet still inspire the low-propensity Republicans to vote at 2020 levels,” said Pennsylvania Democratic strategist J.J. Balaban.
“If they can pull that off, it’s going to be a tough environment for Democrats.”
The Times likewise discussed the dispute between the far-left progressives such as socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and moderate Democrats.
According to the outlet, the feud between moderate Democrats and progressives on whether policies such as higher taxes for social programs, police overhauls, and an abrupt move from fossil fuels are causing swing votes.
Progressives then argue that the moderates are not providing affirmative programs to the voters to improve lives.
Ms. Skopov echoed Virginia Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger, who intensely told House Democrats in a private call after the national election that the left party must refrain from using phrases such as “defund the police” and “socialism.” Republicans have defeated moderate Democrats who pushed for those agendas.
However, the Democrats do not show any signs of slowing down in their violent rhetoric.
If the leftists keep up with their violent rhetoric, it’s almost guaranteed that the GOP would make even higher advances in the coming years.
