Democrats have a problem and it is them

Democrats Seethe After Georgia Loss: ‘Our Brand Is Worse Than Trump’

A demoralizing special-election defeat has left some Democrats questioning the leadership and political strategy of Nancy Pelosi, the House minority leader.
Pelosi is not their main problem.  Their media cohorts are so extreme in their anti-Trump rage and agenda that it makes it difficult for a candidate in a non-liberal district to present a more nuanced message.

Ossoff could talk a more moderate theme, but it was hard to overlook the vitriol coming from Democrats and media analyst at CNN and MSNBC.  That was enough to motivate Republicans to get out in high numbers and vote against the liberal media's favored candidate.

By casting the election as the "resistance" versus Trump they made it easier for Republicans to win.  Republicans may not be that happy with Trump, but they definitely do not want to support the agenda of the "resistance."

If Democrats are concerned about their brand, many things are causing it and political correctness and "resistance" are near the top.
