Democrats are on an epic losing streak.
They have dropped four straight contested special elections since Donald Trump took office.
Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi made an announcement about their message that will doom the Democrats to a landslide defeat.
In an interview with a local San Francisco affiliate, Pelosi announced who would lead the Democrats in the 2018 midterms.
She declared it would be her and Chuck Schumer.
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) described herself and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) as the “voices for winning” back the majorities in their respective chambers in the 2018 midterm elections.
In an interview with KTVU anchor Ken Wayne published Tuesday, Pelosi discussed the Democratic Party’s hopes of taking back the majority from the Republicans. The GOP has held the House since 2010 and the Senate since 2014.
Pelosi said the situation was similar to the preconditions to Democrats taking back the chambers in 2006, the second midterm of George W. Bush’s presidency. Historically, the party of the incumbent president struggles in midterms; Barack Obama’s Democrats suffered brutal losses in 2010 and 2014, and Bush’s Republicans in 2006 took a “thumping,” as Bush put it.
“We’re the voices, the Senate leader and I are the voices for winning those races in [the] House and the Senate, and we’re ready,” Pelosi said.
She said it was “very possible” for Democrats to take back the House, adding it might be easier than winning back the Senate, where Republicans are defending fewer seats.”
Pelosi and Schumer would be an odd couple for the Democrats to pin their hopes on.
The 2016 election revealed the Democrats to be a niche party confined to the coasts and lashed to the mast of identity politics and bizarre social issues like gender neutral bathrooms.
And Pelosi being from San Francisco and Schumer hailing from New York only reinforces the image of the Democrats as urban, coastal elites.
This stereotype alienated Democrats from the middle of the country and helped Donald Trump carry the industrial Midwest states that no Republican had carried in a generation.
It’s also a strange choice considering the Democrats lack of success in special elections.
In the race to fill the vacant seat in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District, the GOP’s most potent argument was tying the Democrats to Nancy Pelosi.
She has led the Democrats since 2003 and the party has lost the 2004, 2010, 2014 and 2016 elections.
Since Schumer ascended to the position of Senate Minority Leader, he has followed in Pelosi’s footsteps.
He is a fundraising powerhouse, but he’s also a big city elitist.
Will Pelosi and Schumer lead the Democrats to victory?
They are tied to the same far-left ideology and cultural condescension that has cost the Democrats over 1,000 seats at every level of government since 2010.
Pelosi and Schumer are the faces of failure.
