In an incredibly obtuse but completely unsurprising move, Tom Perez (formerly Obama’s Secretary of Labor) lamented that the Democratic message “isn’t getting through” to voters in part because of information they’re getting from “the pulpit on Sunday.” The Democrats continue moving to the hard left in tone-deaf fashion in which they’re clearly unable to see the forest for the trees. The reason Trump won in 2016 was his ability to appeal to the populists…of both parties by addressing their concerns, not pontificating to them about what their concerns ought to be. If Dems continue on the present course, 2020 will be like electoral “deja vu all over again.”

Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez says his party’s message doesn’t get through in the Midwest because voters there are often influenced by what they hear from “the pulpit on Sunday.”
During a event in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday titled “The Court In Crisis: What’s Next For Progressives After Kavanaugh” summit, Perez said he’s talked with party leaders about why Democrats’ message fails to connect with some voters.
“I’ve learned this from the outreach we’ve done at the DNC. Why aren’t we penetrating, I asked. And I had someone in northwestern Wisconsin tell me, ‘You know what, for most of the people I know, their principal sources of information are Fox News, their NRA newsletter, and the pulpit on Sunday.’ And it should come as a surprise to no one that our message doesn’t penetrate,” Perez said.
