The Democrats can’t control what’s going on in it’s own party. The leadership not only isn’t leading, it can’t lead it’s own people. The party of the President is running from him or, being chased away by an irate citizenry.
The Democrats have alienated pretty much the entire nation by it’s heavy-handed political tricks and attempts to ram-rod very unpopular legislation.
