In 2022, it’s not an exaggeration to state the Democrat Party has collectively lost its mind. In today’s America, the Democrat is the party of defunding law enforcement, opening the jails, ending cash bail, letting the IRS oversee US citizens’ private bank accounts, and more.
Democrats have made tyrannical attempts to get more power despite controlling Congress and the White House. Thus far, these attempts entail abolishing the filibuster back in January and consistently calling to pack the Supreme Court with far-left justices.
Radicals outweigh the fewer remaining Democrats who have some sense. However, in a fascinating twist, moderate Democrats like Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin are prevailing despite being on progressives’ political hit list, according to RedState.
Progressive Democrats are livid with Sinema and Manchin for refusing to support the abolition of the filibuster, the Build Back Better Act, and the sham “voting rights” bills.
Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have even said the lives of these moderates need to be made harder. However, Sinema and Manchin are better positioned than most people might expect.
During 2021’s closing three months, Sinema managed to bring funds to the tune of $1.6 million. The moderate Democrat of Arizona is seeking significant growth in funds coming in from both corporate donors and different PACs.
Manchin is also doing pretty well for himself. After announcing his rejection of Build Back Better in December 2021, the West Virginia Democrat brought in $300,000 in a matter of days. During the final 12 weeks of 2021, Manchin raked in more than $1.5 million.
During a recent visit to West Virginia, Manchin was also warmly received by his constituents. West Virginia polls have also shown that majorities of state residents support Manchin’s refusal to vote against the filibuster or vote for the Build Back Better Act.
Sinema and Manchin were elected into office to represent their constituents, not vote in lockstep with the Democrat Party, no matter how radical it becomes.
Arizona is not a complex blue state, and West Virginia isn’t. Manchin may be the only Democrat who could prevail and do well in a red state like West Virginia.
When it’s all said and done, DC leftists and Twitter warriors who go after Sinema and Manchin are not the constituents who elected them into office. Therefore, regardless of how vocal it may be, the radical left’s input does not have the final say over whether or not these two moderates remain in office.
