Dems Fear GOP’s 2022 Red Wave Could Be ‘Worse Than You Think’

'Democratic overreach could alienate recently converted voters who are reminded why they voted Republican for the last few decades...'

The Pittsburg Post–Gazette is reporting that Democrat candidates in Pennsylvania are issuing urgent calls to the Democrat National Committee to heed the warnings that voters sent in the 2021 elections.

“This is a bellwether we need to pay attention to,” said attorney Patrice Tisdale, a Democrat who lost her bid to become a magisterial district judge against a Republican candidate with no formal legal training, according to the Post-Gazette.

“This is something going on across the country,” she added. “The Democrats can’t keep doing politics as usual.”

The Post-Gazette said Tisdale was not alone in her panic.

“She’s among the down-ballot Democrats sending an urgent message to the national party: It’s worse than you think,” noted the local Pittsburgh paper.

Democrats, reeling from losses across the board nationally, are in the process of fixing the blame on someone, anyone, in order to move the party forward for the 2022 mid-term elections.

Two moderates who advised Bill Clinton’s swing back to the center after getting trounced when Clinton tried to govern as a liberal in his first term said that Biden has to swing back to the center.

“Of course, this may require some Houdini-like leadership to get votes from the Progressive Caucus for a revised Build Back Better bill,” said Mark Penn and Andrew Stein in the New York Times. “But this is the best strategy to protect Democratic candidates in 2022.”

And protecting Democrats might be the best the party can do in 2022.

Democrats have used the Trump years to swing to the left and drop any pretense of being a middle-class party that understands ordinary Americans.

“But while a larger share of the electorate now believes that both parties are embracing their ideological bents,” warned the Morning Consult about Democrat ideology, “voters are more likely to cast the Democratic Party as ‘too liberal’ than they are to consider the GOP ‘too conservative.’”

“Even if independents aren’t in love with one party’s issues and leaders, perceived extremism by the other party could keep those independents in line,” said Nathan Gonzales, a nonpartisan elections analyst who edits and publishes Inside Elections.

“Democratic overreach could alienate recently converted voters who are reminded why they voted Republican for the last few decades,” he said.
