Democrats thought they had the upper hand in the final stretch of the Midterm elections.
But reality just smacked them in the face.
And a top Bill Clinton advisor just gave Chuck Schumer some devastating news about this swing state.
Midterm elections are normally a referendum on the President.
The country has gone down the tubes since Biden and the Democrats took control of the federal government.
Since Democrats know they can’t run on their disastrous record, they’re hoping to distract voters from Biden’s failed Presidency.
When the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Democrats thought they were thrown a political lifeline.
Democrat candidates are ignoring the actual issues facing the country, like the economy and inflation, and campaigning non-stop about making abortion on demand a federal law.
According to one of the minds on the Left, this single-minded focus by Democrats is a recipe for disaster.
James Carville, who served as Bill Clinton’s top political advisor, poured cold water on the idea of Democrats a running single-issue campaign on abortion.
“A lot of these consultants think if all we do is run abortion spots that will win for us,” Carville explained. “I don’t think so.”
“It’s a good issue,” Carville continued. “But if you just sit there and they’re pummeling you on crime and pummeling you on the cost of living, you’ve got to be more aggressive than just yelling abortion every other word.”
While Democrats are focused on abortion, Republicans are hammering them over the many disasters they created running the country.
Polling shows that overwhelming the top issues for voters are inflation and the economy.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) hoped that abortion would tip the scales for Democrats in one of the biggest battleground states this year.
Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for reelection this fall.
Even though her campaign hoped that abortion would swing the election, voters are giving her a different answer.
Yusette Solomon, a union canvasser supporting Cortez Masto, said that voters aren’t talking about abortion.
Instead, they’re focusing on the economy.
“It’s hard for everybody,” Solomon said. “It’s the supermarket. It’s gas. Inflation is something we need to deal with. Everyone’s feeling it.”
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel said that Democrats had “oversaturated” their abortion message.
“Voters are starting to come back to the things they wake up thinking about every day: Can I fill my car with gas? Can I pay for groceries? How are my kids doing?” McDaniel said.
Democrats could lose their Senate majority by ignoring the issues that really matter to voters this election.
