- Politico published an article that admitted Russia-Ukraine conflict is diverting attention away from Democrats’ “unpopular domestic issues.”
- The article is titled “Dems catch a break from the culture wars”
- This is a big deal because it may impact how the Biden administration responds to the conflict
A politico article made a major admission about the Russia-Ukraine Conflict – it is diverting attention from the Democrats’ “unpopular domestic issues.”
The Ukraine war is good news for Democrats because it distracts from their unpopular domestic issues, an article in Politico magazine argues.
“Dems catch a break from the culture wars: War in Ukraine and the domestic economic fallout have given Democrats a chance to focus there instead of on other issues that dominated 2021,” read the headline on the lead story by David Siders and Elena Schneider in the Saturday morning layout at Politico’s website.
The article, which was about the Democrats’ 2022 campaign meeting in Washington, D.C., notes that “[f]or more than a year, Democrats have been on defense, with the party’s own polling clarifying its vulnerability to the GOP’s “alarmingly potent” attacks in the “culture wars.”
However, the article then adds that the Ukraine war and “ensuing economic fallout” have now “given the Democrats a chance to put those matters aside and focus on an unlikely, more favorable set of issues eight months before the midterms.”
For once, it’s not banned books or transgender athletes nonstop on Americans’ TVs, but foreign affairs and rising gas prices. In the past week, Biden’s public approval ratings have ticked up, and the generic ballot has improved slightly for Democrats. Democratic governors are proposing gas price relief, while the party’s campaign arms are pummeling Republicans on taxes and health care costs.
