CNN Panel on Shutdown: ‘Huge Gamble for Dems,’ Voters Might Not Forget Dems Shut Gov’t Down
WHITFIELD: "But then five Republicans voting against this from states where trump carried it. So, I mean, this isn’t a giant gamble, is it."
McGUIRE: "I think it is a huge gamble on the Democrat’s part. If you read The New York Times it is clear that Democrats are hoping in November people forget about the shutdown. They are gambling that people forget about this and they feel like they need to do this right now to appease their base. But hopefully by November other voters in these red states will have forgotten about it and that shows where the leverage is here and that is on the Republican side."
