CNN Panelist: Bad Tuesday for Dems
Democratic strategist and CNN political commentator Hilary Rosen said Sunday that she was “not happy” with the Democratic Party and insisted they didn’t listen to voters in these elections.
“I’m a loyal Democrat, but I am not happy. I just think that we did not listen to voters in this election, and I think we’re going to have a bad night. This conversation is not going to have much impact on Tuesday, but I hope it has an impact going forward, because when voters tell you over and over and over again that they care mostly about the economy, listen to them,” Rosen said.
She said Democrats need to stop talking about democracy being at stake.
“Democracy is at stake because people are fighting so much about what elections mean. I mean, voters have told us what they wanted to hear and I don’t think Democrats have delivered this cycle,” she added.

America’s historical party of the working class keeps losing working-class support. And not just among white voters. Not only has the emerging Democratic majority I once predicted failed to materialize, but many of the nonwhite voters who were supposed to deliver it are instead voting for Republicans.
This year, Democrats have chosen to run a campaign focused on three things: abortion rights, gun control, and safeguarding democracy—issues with strong appeal to socially liberal, college-educated voters. But these issues have much less appeal to working class voters.
Luxury beliefs don’t have mass market appeal. And it’s hard to build a majority based on contempt for, well, the majority.
