Most are stone cold liberals/progressives….
That part of the party ain’t doing too good these days…
Matter of fact?
They’ve had the door closed in their faces….
What do they do?
A LOT are pissed at a party that cannot get past just ONE US Democratic Senator from West Virginia….
President Biden seems to be dragging things down…
In order for Democrats to defy dire electoral forecasts in November, strategists say, their base must vote with the fervor they showed in 2020 — including the youngest Americans, who turned out in record numbers overwhelmingly for President Biden….
But Biden’s popularity with the under-30 crowd has declined since he took office, unnerving campaigns who see presidential approval ratings as a gauge of how elections will shake out.

Midterms draw fewer voters than presidential races and frequently come down to which side can persuade their core voters to show up.

In about half of states where reliable data is available, meanwhile, researchers at Tufts University flagged that the number of 18-to-24-year-olds who were registered to vote in June is lagging behind the 2018 pace, especially for freshly eligible ballot casters.
“It gets harder when we keep winning elections and nothing is happening. Not everyone’s going to be like: ‘Okay, yeah, let’s go vote for them again.’ ”
