2018’s Midterms Expose Divide in the Democratic Party
There are multiple rifts forming in the Democratic Party – and these rifts could end up costing the Democrats control of Congress come the midterm elections.
After Republicans won the special election in Ohio, handing Democrats yet another defeat in what has been a string of defeats that dates back to the ultimate wave of losses in 2016, Democrats were forced to yet again examine what went wrong.
In all likelihood, though, what went wrong is that the Democratic Party has become a house divided. Far-left Democrats such as Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have gained momentum in the party while at the same time disagreeing heavily with establishment Democrats to the point of in-fighting. Meanwhile, many Democrats – both from the party’s establishment and it’s new far-left wing – have lost faith in the party’s leadership, particularly in House minority leader Nancy Pelosi.
This loss of faith – while completely warranted – has played a part in making the Democratic Party seem weak in the eyes of voters. Add to that the divisions and in-fighting between the different sects of the party and Democrats appear even weaker and more divided – to the point that the blue wave they have promised may never come.
