Kos nails it.
In addition to doing a piss poor job of passing the best legislation possible the last 20 months, Democrats have done a piss poor job of communicating the successes they have had. And, they’ve certainly blown properly branding Republicans with their unpopular agenda, because when polled specifically about Republican priorities, the public recoils in horror.
Exactly. I think it’s too late for Dems this cycle to garner the support they’ll need to get re-elected. Democratic voters are rightfully pissed that the agenda they were promised Obama and others would work on wasn’t worked on. Instead, they got preemptive capitulation and Quests for the Holy Bipartisanship Grail. If Democrats seriously wanted to be reelected, they had 20 months to prove it. They didn’t and they’re facing the consequences now.
