Monday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Axios national political reporter Jonathan Swan laid out the difficulties the Democratic Party has ahead of it going into future election cycles.
Swan called the Democratic National Committee’s brand “a disaster” and that overall the party was still looking for direction.
“I think one of the biggest problems is the DNC brand is a disaster,” Swan said. “I mean the party brand has been so wrecked over the last year. Wikileaks has played into that and what you hear when you talk to people on the Hill is that all of the energy is outside of the party. It’s kind of diffuse — you know, groups like Indivisible and Resist rallies. I mean, there’s a whole lot of energy out there and Mark’s right, a lot of it channeled into the Ossoff race and that was a very disappointing result. They’re still looking for a direction. There still is no clear direction for this party. You hear such different figures floated for 2020. A Cory Booker presidency would be very different from a Liz Warren presidency and the party needs to figure that out.”
