CNN panelist predicts ‘bad night’, says Democrats didn’t ‘listen’ to voters throughout election

Democratic strategist and CNN political commentator Hilary Rosen said Sunday she was “unhappy” with the Democratic Party and insisted they had not listened to voters in this election.

“I’m a staunch Democrat, but I’m not happy. I just think we didn’t listen to voters in this election, and I think we’re going to have a bad night. This conversation won’t have much Tuesday, but hopefully it will have an impact in the future, because when voters tell you again and again that they care primarily about the economy, listen to them,” Rosen said.

She said Democrats need to stop talking about democracy at stake.

“Democracy is at stake because people are fighting so much about the meaning of elections. I mean, voters told us what they wanted to hear and I don’t think Democrats delivered that cycle,” a- she added.

CNN’s Bakari Sellars agreed, but added that some Democrats, such as Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Arizona, and Sen. Raphael Warnock, D-GA., were running big races.

“In those places, what we have the unfortunate combination of strong gubernatorial candidates. You know, like Mark Kelly – I was just in Arizona and I spent time there, I talked to a group of voters. Mark Kelly is popular, but Kari Lake is more popular. And the combination of Kari Lake’s popularity and Joe Biden’s unpopularity is going to hurt Mark Kelly. And so, I think we’re in trouble because from the top of the ticket,” Rosen said.

Kelly is running against Republican Blake Masters in the Arizona Senate race. Lake will face Democrat Katie Hobbs, Arizona’s secretary of state, on Tuesday.

Former Mike Pence chief of staff Marc Short said Masters is likely to win Arizona because the southern border is a “serious issue” for voters. He argued that Democrats haven’t talked about what they plan to do to reduce inflation or immigration.

“It’s not because of the facts, Marc, I don’t think we have any problems because of the facts. I think we have any problems because of the messages,” Rosen replied. “You’ve been in power for a long time and you haven’t done anything about it.”

Rosen also argued that Democrats have an economic story to tell and said “people like our policies on the economy better.”

President Biden, as well as former President Obama, have asserted in recent campaign speeches that democracy is at stake in these midterm elections.

“It is estimated that more than 300 [GOP] election deniers are on the ballot across America this year,” Biden said during a DNC speech on Wednesday. “It’s not about me… It’s about the sustainability of our democracy.”
