THTP - POLL
General information

Archive for November 22nd, 2017

What Does the Democratic Party Stand for Today? Illicit Sexual Behavior, Bribery, Cheaters, Liars, False issue chargers, Party of Division, Baby killers, Obstructionist.

The new Washington Post-ABC News poll is bad for President Trump, but one number is raising some eyebrows when it comes to Democrats.
It asked whether people thought the Democratic Party stands for something or just stands against Trump, and people chose the latter by a 52-to-37 margin. So that is a majority of registered voters who think the opposition party isn’t defined by anything except opposition — that the Democratic Party has no real message.
This isn’t out of nowhere. Rep. Joseph Crowley (N.Y.), the fourth-ranking Democrat in the House, seemed to confirm the majority’s belief in an Associated Press story that just happened to pop the same morning the Post-ABC poll did. “That message is being worked on,” the congressman said. “We’re doing everything we can to simplify it, but at the same time provide the meat behind it as well. So that’s coming together now.”
Then there are those special-election losses — especially that backbreaker in Georgia, in which there was some Bernie Sanders-related consternation about whether Jon Ossoff was progressive enough.  It’s a bit of a mess. And it’s a mess that’s complicated by the fact that Democrats are really good at being disorganized and also don’t really have a leader to speak of at the moment. But here’s what else we can say: It probably doesn’t matter.
Republicans ran for years on a message of “Obama is bad” and “undo what Obama did” and it worked out pretty well for them in the 2010 and 2014 midterms. Charlie Cook had this prescient quote in Rolling Stone in March 2010, when Republicans were actually in a pretty similar spot to where Democrats are right now and people were wondering what the message was:  “Does the Republican Party lack a clear leader? Absolutely. Do they lack a positive message? Of course. Do their demographics suck? Yeah,” Cook said. “But in a midterm election, none of that matters. Because midterm elections are a referendum on the party in power. And to throw one side out, you’ve got to throw the other side back in.”
