Democrats Still Have No Message On Inflation With Midterms Just Two Weeks Away

The midterms are just two weeks away and the Democrats still have no clear message on inflation and the economy.

They have tried to force the midterms to be about abortion, Trump, and saving democracy, but none of those issues resonate with the public, which is most concerned about financial issues and crime.

This is part of what’s hurting Democrats in the polls but they seem unwilling or unable to pivot.

NBC News reports:

Democrats struggle with message on inflation in final midterm push

As Republicans regain momentum on concerns about the economy, the only thing Democrats seem to agree on about their message on issues like inflation and high gas prices is that it needs improvement — and time is running out.

“What is our message about why inflation is going to be worse if Republicans win?” Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., told NBC News in an interview. “I don’t think our economic message has been loud enough or sharp enough.”

“We’ll have to message it better in the next three weeks ahead,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in an interview with Punchbowl News this week, when asked about inflation.

In response, the spokesperson for Justice Democrats, a progressive group, tweeted, “With all due respect, this is a terrible Democratic Party message in response to inflation and the skyrocketing cost of living from Speaker Pelosi.”

With gas prices up again and a potential recession looming, voters are once again telling pollsters that inflation is the most important issue facing the country, reversing the boost Democrats enjoyed over the summer when the public was more concerned with issues like abortion rights and threats to democracy.

Democratic pollsters and strategists are sounding the alarm.

It’s probably already too late for Democrats to change their messaging, even if they wanted to.

At this late stage, most voters know where the Democrats’ priorities lie.
