It’s no surprise that Democrats behave like lemmings. In 1972, 1984, 1988, 2000, 2004, and in 2016 Democrats have merrily walked over electoral cliffs when they gave their left wing serious power over their party. They’re doing it again.
Joe Biden is napping in the White House while the Sanders administration goes about its job. But even Sanders himself has admitted it will only go on for two years until the midterms. Democrat pollster Mark Penn explains the matter.
FNC: “Democrats will face a “devastatingly bad” midterm election cycle if President Biden doesn’t shift away from his party’s left-wing flank and its demands, a top adviser to Bill Clinton told Fox News in an interview.”

“The Biden administration has been seen as too far to the left, and the Democratic Party has been seen as too far to the left,” Mark Penn said.
“I think unless the Democrats change course here and move more towards the center, these trends indicate a devastatingly bad midterm election for Democrats. Even though I think there have been signs for the last couple of months that people see the left of having too much influence in the Democratic Party, the Biden administration has remained on course and hasn’t made any shifts,” Penn said.
“When I worked with President Clinton, it took the ’94 congressional elections to serve as a wake-up call, and President Clinton moved from – kind of – working with the left, to working with the center. I don’t think we’re going to see that come out of president Biden right now, that may – like President Clinton – take a strong message in the midterms for that to happen,” Penn concluded.
Penn has also recently commented, “The president seems to be pouring gasoline on his own fire here because the ratings keep going down. There’s been really no progress by the administration in any of the major issues, and the most important thing is the economy, which is the number two issue after the virus. Really, the president has taken a huge slide here. I think the public sees [the Build Back Better plan] as enormous taxing and spending, and I think this bill adds, as I said, more gasoline to the fire that we see going on here — on the issues of immigration, crime, inflation, economy, deficit and foreign policy. That’s why these ratings are well underwater.
If the president is not having successful ratings on key issues like the economy, national security, and things fundamental, like gasoline prices and food prices, that’s going to have an enormous effect [on elections]. Look, right now, unless the administration changes course here or in a lot of the things it’s doing, it’s headed for a pretty gruesome Midterms and I think they know it.”
