Dems Throw Radical Blue-State Govs. Under Bus for Destroying Down-Ballot Hopes

'Everyone I talk to, they're like what the f*ck is going on? ... '

(Ezekiel Loseke, Headline USA) The unpopularity of Democrat governors is creating a reverse coattail effect in unusual districts in the deep blue states of New York, California and Oregon.

The coattail effect is when popular candidates atop the ticket (usually candidates for an executive office) produce better electoral numbers for down-ballot candidates of the same party.

Democrats, shocked by a surge of popularity in deep blue districts, are citing a reverse coattail effect, where the unpopularity of the state’s governors is exposing Democrat candidates for the House of Representatives in the 2022 election, Axios reported.

This blame comes as Cook Political Report projected Democrat losses in new–and previously deep blue–districts. Specifically, this list includes the 3rd district of California, 3rd district of New York and 1st district of Oregon.

An anonymous Democrat strategist who works on House campaigns told Axios that, “There is a direct correlation between the performance of [New York Gov.] Kathy Hochul and [California Gov.] Gavin Newsom and the effect it’s having on House candidates.”

The strategist continued, “I think Republicans are noticing this too, especially in New York. They’re not even running ads anymore with Pelosi and Biden. They’re running ads with Kathy Hochul.”

The strategist warned that “unless Hochul and Newsom pick it up, we’re going to lose House seats.”

The first district of Oregon became competitive, Axios reported, as Oregon’s governess, Kate Brown, is shown to be America’s most unpopular governor. New York’s governess, Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., is only leading the blue state by single digits.

An anonymous Democrat staffer in New York said, “I think that they were caught flat-footed. Everyone I talk to, they’re like what the f*ck is going on?”

Even the Democrat wonder boy, Gavin Newsom, is coming in for criticism alleging he is too national and not properly concerned with California.
