(PresidentialInsider.com)- The Democrats are in trouble in 2022, and even their own pollsters are admitting it.
Bryan Stryker, a Democratic pollster who conducted a series of focus groups after Terry McAuliffe lost the gubernatorial race in Virginia just weeks ago, has revealed that the Democrats have a lot to lose next year – and that it has a lot to do with President Joe Biden’s horrible performance as president so far.
Hired by the Third Way think tank to help determine why voters, who turned out and voted for Joe Biden by a 10-point margin of victory, decided to vote Republican in this year’s gubernatorial election. And, when asked by the far-left New York Times what he would tell a Democratic candidate running in the midterm elections next year, he simply said, “we have a problem.”
Stryker said that the Democrats’ problems, and their national branding issues, go “probably deeper than a lot of people suspect.”
Do the Democrats really understand that people don’t want Critical Race Theory in their schools and left-wing extremism on their streets?
“Our party thinks maybe some things we’re saying aren’t cutting through, but I think it’s much deeper than that,” he said.
Last month, Stryker published his findings in the wake of his research and discussions with focus groups, revealing that few could name a single accomplishment made by the Democrats over the past few months. He added that the $1.2 trillion “bipartisan” infrastructure bill also didn’t “overcome their opinions that [the Democrats] have spent the last year infighting and careening from crisis to crisis.”
In other words, the Democrats are in trouble, it’s their own fault, and even when pollsters tell them to start doing something positive…they still won’t listen.
Stryker’s right. This goes deep.
