Chuck Todd: ‘Doesn’t Get Much Lower Than This for Democrats,’ ‘Can’t Win,’ Not Changing After Loss

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” host Chuck Todd stated that it “”Doesn’t get much lower than this” for the Democratic Party, which has discovered it “can’t win” and having House leadership elections where instead of picking up the pieces, they arranged them “in the exact same order.”

Todd said, “The party that was predicting a permanent lock on the Electoral College, has suddenly discovered, they can’t win anything.”

He added, “Doesn’t get much lower than this for Democrats. A few weeks ago, Democrats were measuring the drapes, not just in the White House, they thought that was in the bag. They were talking about the Senate, that was in reach. Even the House, at one point. They at least thought they would narrow it in a big way, or shall we see, bigly. But now, Democrats are facing a unified Republican government after arguably misjudging the electorate and bungling the delivery of their own message, or frankly, coming up with one. After years of trumpeting their party’s strength with young voters and minorities, Democrats now find themselves out of touch with working-class white voters in the Midwest.”

After discussing the House Democrats’ leadership elections, Todd concluded, “Democrats were supposed to begin picking up the pieces from this month’s election, and it looks like they are arranging them in the exact same order.”
