During Barack Obama’s reign, the Democratic Party was supremely powerful.
Well, that’s what the mainstream media wanted you to think, at any rate.
Truth was, the Party was crumbling from within and now they’re on life support. We recently expounded upon the reasons behind the party’s collapse; we encourage you to comment on that breakdown if you haven’t already.
But we’re hardly the only ones to notice the collapse of the Leftists.
What started soon after Donald Trump won the presidency has now become a critical situation for Democrats. Even its own members, like former vice president Joe Biden, have pointed out the party’s obvious failings.
Now, The Atlantic isn’t mincing any words: The Democratic Party is “kind of screwed.”
This from Poynter, citing journalists Molly Ball (The Atlantic) and Nia-Malika Henderson (CNN), speaking during the annual convention of the Midwest Political Science Association:
“‘I think the Democrats are kind of screwed at this point,’ said Henderson, underscoring what’s clearly the current consensus. ‘They thought Hillary Clinton would win and their bench is really, really thin.’
CNN’s Henderson wasn’t alone in this observation. The Atlantic’s Molly Ball agreed:
‘It will be fun to cover the Democratic civil war for a change,’ she said. ‘It’s hard to underestimate how screwed the Democrats are.‘”
They further concluded that there is “no pipeline” of obvious Democratic talent.
Then we saw that eye-opening Election 2016 map, which must’ve been quite the shock to liberals everywhere. The truth is out and it’s very much the opposite of the “truth” the mainstream media shoved down our throats.
The Democratic Party is failing, plain and simple. And you know what?
They have only themselves to blame.
