As those that reside in the beltway continue to encroach more and more on the individual lives of Americans, a backlash is building. You won’t see it in the pages of The New York Times or on CNN, nor will it be admitted to by any number of blue checkmark liberals on social media, but rest assured, it’s coming.

And while they will continue to put on a happy face, I think Democrats are well aware of the corner they’ve painted themselves into. With every radical move in Washington, more and more “moderate” Congressional members see their chances at reelection decrease back home.

As an aside, Republicans should really stop running the same people who keep losing over and over (cough Martha McSally cough).

Regardless, Democrats know the landscape is going to look far different in 2022, especially for liberal incumbents in swing districts. These are the places that I think the
