Rachel Maddow: Maybe Democrats ‘Don’t Deserve To Win’ in Midterms
Rachel Maddow: Maybe Democrats ‘Don’t Deserve to Win’ in Midterms (Mediaite)
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow has become increasingly frustrated with the way Democratic congressional candidates have run their campaigns ahead of the November midterm elections. When she appeared Thursday on Late Night with Seth Meyers, she admitted that liberals may “deserve” to lose the Senate, as most polling models are forecasting.
As Maddow explained, she believes it’s a “weird strategic move” for Democrats to distance themselves from President Barack Obama, especially given the overall success of his Affordable Care Act. Now that Republicans can no longer credibly run against Obamacare, Maddow expressed her disappointment that Democrats have given up on the issue as well.
