Why Democrats Lose

Michael Barone points out that Democrats have been very good at winning in recent years, at least up until people have to vote.

He makes a very good point. The Democratic party needs a change of perspective. They are seen as the negative party - the party that is pessimistic about Iraq, about the War on Terror, about the economy, about America's role in the world, about their political opponents, about counting votes... about a lot of things. I think the Angry Left contributes heavily to this image - a great irony, considering that they vilify Limbaugh, Hannity, Coulter, O'Reilly, Malkin, and others as purveyors of hate.

Anyway, until voters are convinced that Democrats have a positive vision for the future, rather than a list of things and people they want to stamp out, Democrats will continue to have a hard time winning.

Back to the top.
