Democrats’ Big Gamble Before Election Day Isn’t Working

( Democrats began working on making abortion a midterm issue as soon as word spread that the Supreme Court would reverse Roe v. Wade, but their efforts are “already falling flat” with voters, according to a story published on Wednesday by The Hill.

Aaron Chappell, political director of the grassroots organization Our Revolution, told the newspaper that they are with leadership pleading for people to vote with no specific strategy, no guarantees of what those votes will accomplish.

Democrats have started talking about trying to “codify Roe” or even bringing back the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would forbid local, state, and federal officials from prohibiting abortions at any stage of pregnancy. This is because the debate over abortion laws has been given back to state legislatures. Already, pro-abortion organizations are funding the campaigns of Democrats and running attack ads against Republicans who support life.

By spreading false information about a prospective nationwide abortion ban if Republicans regain control of the House and Senate in November, Democrats also hope to create enough urgency to swing the turnout figures in their favor.

However, some Democratic strategists “doubt if that’s the proper approach,” The Hill reports.

According to Chappell, the party elite is just hoping that the Roe decision will shift the midterm election’s course.

Democrats are once more discussing the possibility of adding justices to the Supreme Court to make some progress before a strongly expected red wave. We must hold these renegade justices accountable, said extreme-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) in a statement published on Tuesday.

To codify Roe, Democrats are also attempting to abolish the filibuster, a step that President Joe Biden supported last week. Some politicians disagree, claiming that Biden could have pushed to end the filibuster sooner and that his remark was “half-assed.”

An unidentified Democratic strategist said that it took them this long, and when he finally gets to it, it’s a weak statement at the end of a news week. People are furious.

Given that they “hold practically every level of political power,” Sawyer Hackett, a senior communications strategist with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, criticized Democrats for their “self-fulfilling defeatism.”

Hackett added that we have all of that and yet can’t prevail in that setting, “then there are obviously these fundamental structural concerns we have to address as well.”
