As evident in the last congressional election, the democrats have lost the initiative with voters. Citizens, like Dave Morin, no longer believing in the hope or the change that was promised by President Obama looked to new congressmen and senators to get the country moving again. Then there is the economy, even with traditional evidence showing the country on an upswing, many people have not returned to the workforce or are not being paid what they were before the great recession. Finally when they were given the chance to advance their party’s agenda, they were only able to produce one significant piece of legislation…the Affordable Care Act. Selling middle class economics will do well with many voters as they always do, but Hillary or any other democrat will have to show how they can overcome the mistakes of the past eight years.
