Democrats Admit Problems With Minorities, But Double Down On Racism

It's in their party blood.

A Democrat report just out accurately pointed out problems Democrats have with blacks and Latins, but then suggests Democrats continue the racist messages that are driving minorities to the Republicans. From slavery, to Jim Crow, to the Klan, to segregation, to today’s Democrat left wing racism, the Democrats just can’t help themselves.

FNC: “An extensive analysis of what went right and wrong for Democrats in the 2020 elections warns that the party could see support drop with Black, Hispanic and Asian American voters in future contests unless Democrats do a more effective job countering Republican attacks. While Democrats won the White House and narrowly captured the Senate majority in the 2020 cycle, in the battle for the House the GOP defied expectations and took a big bite out of the Democrats’ majority in the House and Republicans currently only need a net gain of five seats in the 2022 midterms to regain control of the chamber.

“A 73-page autopsy of the 2020 contests compiled by three pro-Democratic groups – the Third Way, a centrist think tank; the Collective PAC, which supports Black candidates; and the Latino Victory Fund, which promotes Hispanic candidates – spotlights that many House and some Senate Democrats underperformed at the ballot box because they failed to match now-President Biden’s support with voters of color, who despised then-President Trump but who also had reservations about the Democratic Party. The report was conducted over the past six months by veteran Democratic operatives and communicators Lynda Tran and Marlon Marshall. The analysis included nearly 150 interviews with candidates, staff, consultants, and pro-Democratic outside groups and organizations, as well as a in-depth look at polling and turnout data, and ad campaigns.

“The analysis – which was first reported by The New York Times – points to specific electoral setbacks with Spanish speaking voters in Florida and Texas, Black voters in North Carolina, and Asian American voters in California, as it argues that Democrats failed to convey a consistent core message on the economy last year and “leaned too heavily on ‘anti-Trump’ rhetoric.’ ”

“The 2020 election was a mixed bag for Democrats. While thrilled with the Biden win and the new Senate majority, expected victories in many contested races failed to materialize, and the Party lost significant ground in the House,” reads an intro by the Third Way.

It focuses on “the purpose of this project was to determine what worked well for Democrats in these campaigns and, in particular, what challenges they faced, so that the Party can be best prepared to compete in 2022 and beyond.”

They surmise “voters of color are persuasion voters who need to be convinced,” “Republican attempts to brand Democrats as ‘radicals’ worked,” “Polling was a huge problem – even after 2016 adjustments,” “COVID-19 affected everything,” and “Our hopes for 2020 were just too high.”

The authors concluded that Democrats need “to be unapologetic about race. And we need to explain to all Americans why doing so is beneficial to everyone.” Yup Democrats, keep shooting par like that and we’ll have Congress and the White House back in American hands.
