Since the beginning of the year, we’ve heard about House Democrats announcing sudden retirements. It’s as if a memo was sent throughout the Democratic Party, triggering a wave of exits and the sudden need to leave Washington after decades of work. That memo was near endless approval ratings showing the left just how unpopular Joe Biden has become. Other polls showed that Republicans have a double-digit lead going into the midterms, something we’ve never seen before.
Redistricting is squeezing Democrats out of swing and red states. And the lagging leadership of Nancy Pelosi does not have many Democrats feeling confident. The Speaker seems blind to the fact her party could lose big this November. And she doesn’t do anything to right the ship and save at least a few vulnerable seats. Now, yet another Democrat announced his retirement.
Florida Rep. Ted Deutch says he won’t seek reelection in November, making him the 31 House Democrat to drop out this year…
Last year, Deutch was one of the members of his party to publicly criticize fellow House Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib for anti-Semitic comments the Michigan congresswoman and Muslim made during a chamber debate regarding Israeli defense funds…
Democrats are widely expected to lose control of the lower chamber in November, with more than twice the number of retiring members than Republicans. Fourteen House Republicans will not seek reelection, with half running for higher office. [Source: Just the news]
Yet another moderate Democrat is running for the exits. Rep. Deutch was an apparent enemy of Rashida Tlaib, an outspoken anti-Semite and member of the far left wing. Pelosi has increasingly bowed to the radical left in recent years, effectively letting them run the party. Moderate Democrats, also known as the only Democrats who can win elections in many states, are retiring because they are being boxed out of their own party.
This is all amounting to a disaster in waiting. Democrats continue to push a radical, socialist agenda—even as Biden fails. His socialist-leaning policies have not worked and only amounted to horrible approval numbers. Moderate Democrats are treated like monsters as idiots like AOC are propped up as the “future” of the party. But the only future the party seems to have is becoming a fringe movement that watches real leaders fix the country.
It’s getting so bad, the DCCC refuses to pony up the money to help Democrats in states like Florida. Things are getting so bad, they seem to be having trouble finding people willing to run. Meanwhile, the Republicans are recruiting more and more fresh, young candidates to challenge establishment Democrats.
We can’t pretend what will happen in November, but it’s not looking good for the left.
