Bloomberg: Democrats headed for ‘wipeout’ in November without immediate course correction

Michael Bloomberg writes in a new op-ed that he is “deeply concerned” the Democratic Party is “headed for a wipeout in November, up and down the ballot.” 

The former New York City mayor and Democratic presidential candidate points to the recent recall of three school board members in San Francisco while making his argument in Bloomberg News.

“Coming from America’s most liberal city, those results should translate into a 7 to 8 on the Richter scale, because the three main factors that drove the recall are not unique to the Bay Area,” Bloomberg writes.

“The school board members seemed more concerned with political correctness than educating children. Instead of reopening schools, they spent their time renaming them, stripping off the names of historic figures like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln before a public outcry forced them to reverse course,” he added. 

Bloomberg notes that a “recent Democratic Party poll showed that voters perceive it as being too ‘focused on the culture wars’ — from renaming schools to defunding the police.”

“But the advice that party leaders are giving members of Congress — to ‘correct the record’ when Republicans criticize them on schools and culture — isn’t going to cut it,” he added.

Bloomberg also writes that swing voters “will decide the 2022 midterm elections,” adding that “polls show they are swinging away from Democrats.”

“The earthquake that shook San Francisco needs to shake up our party, before voters do it themselves in November,” he writes.
