Democrats are blaming their losses on everything under the sun. Biden blames Trump voters for the Youngkin win. Well, he got that right. Though no explanation on how Virginians were solidly his voters last year. Democrat socialists blame the moderates. Moderates blame the socialists. Democrats Manchin, Sinema, and Gabbard are so disgusted with their own party they might jump. But will the Democrat Party take notice of these sad tidings? No.
They are unable to as the socialist rot has so infected their system they stare at their recent losses like Helen Keller. One difference. Keller overcame her handicap and learned to communicate. As of now, the Democrats will not follow her example. Liz Peek goes deeper.

Peek: Are Democrats listening? Did they hear the thunderclap message sent in New Jersey – a state with one million more Democrats than Republicans – where incumbent Gov. Phil Murphy’s race against a no-name GOP rival was too close to call the next morning? A race that was not even on the radar until just a couple of weeks ago, when Republican Jack Ciattarelli began to cut into Murphy’s formidable lead?
Do they understand why in Virginia long-shot candidate Glenn Youngkin upset Democrat Terry McAuliffe in a state where no Republican had won a statewide victory since 2009?
Sadly, in the face of these stunning results, Democrats will tell each other this: if only we had passed the $3.5 trillion Build Back Better bill, these contests would have been in the bag. They will decide it’s all Joe Manchin’s fault; they will blame the moderate West Virginia Democrat for blocking Joe Biden’s progressive agenda which, they will insist, is what voters really want.
It will be the rare Democrat that gets the message: we are on the wrong track. Our far-left agenda is alienating voters and, most important, we are not paying attention to the issues that Americans care most about. That’s what the polls have been saying for weeks, but Democrats have ignored the polls. Now, that’s what these elections say. Will Democrats ignore them, too?
They will and here’s why: progressive ideologues like Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are driving the Democrats’ bus; they are so convinced they are right, so entrenched in their views, that they cannot pivot. Even as inflation has become the nation’s number one concern, Democrats continue to push giant spending bills that Americans rightly think will drive prices even higher.
As an acute labor shortage has driven up wages and inflation, and even with the labor participation rate the lowest it has been for over 40 years, they insist that what we really need is more welfare programs that will incentivize more Americans to sit on the sidelines. How can they be so clueless?
