Democrats have lost their connection to everyday voters, according to Senator Cory Booker (D-NY).
Speaking at Netroots Nation 2018, a progressive political convention, Booker admitted Friday that the Democrat Party needs to refocus its message based on the needs of voters rather than its hatred of the president.
“I think a lot about the Democratic Party nationally and how it seems that that connection to people – where they are, what their experiences are, their struggles, their hurt, and their pain – how we seem to have lost our way,” Booker said.
“What we need to be doing is reconnecting ourselves to folks where they are.”
Additionally, the party’s increasingly unhinged rhetoric against President Trump, his administration and family, and his supporters has derailed the Democrat party’s messaging – its policy platform is now for anything Trump is against, and is against anything Trump is for.
