The Democratic President crusin at 41-42% approval in the polls with 50%+ in disapproval with media and predictions of Democrats losing the House and Senate?
Democrats ARE looking to their party leader to try to ‘change things up’…
They maybe looking for something that isn’t possible ….

The transition to leading as President has been troubled for the last year….
There’s a growing sense among Democrats that it’s time for a change of course at the White House — whether that means new strategy or new staffers.
