Even Democrats in Congress are warning their party that its radical pro-abortion agenda is turning off voters.
Life News reports:
Last week, a U.S. House Democrat who represents a swing district related this frustration in an interview with Politico. The news outlet excluded names so Democrat lawmakers and staffers could “speak freely” about their problems with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Patrick Maloney and his strategies.
“This is a real f—— problem,” the lawmaker said, pointing to a major disconnect between the committee and Democrat voters.
Experts are predicting major losses for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections amid President Joe Biden’s dismal approval rating and several unexpected losses and near-losses in Virginia and New Jersey this year.
The lawmaker, despite being pro-abortion, recognized that the party is losing voters in swing districts because it is “bashing” pro-lifers. Increasingly, the message from Democrat party leaders and top candidates has been that pro-lifers are not welcome in the party anymore.

As cases challenging Roe v. Wade have reached the Supreme Court, the DCCC has sent dozens of press releases attacking Republican candidates and lawmakers for opposing abortion rights. But one front-liner called abortion “a lightning rod” in their district — and said the DCCC should steer clear of it as a campaign issue.
“We should leave it up to Planned Parenthood and all the reproductive organizations to get in there and support candidates that are pro-choice and leave it at that,” the member, who like other vulnerable Democrats supports abortion rights, told us. “I’m not going to go out there and start bashing people for being pro-life. It would be a big mistake in my district.”
