In Washington, Democrats are trying to pass the most ambitious agenda since the Great Society without having won a majority of seats in the U.S. Senate. How is that supposed to work? (Answer: It won’t.) There are increasing signs that party leaders are deeply out of touch not just with the public as a whole but specifically with their own voters. The latest poll on voter ID, showing 80 percent of all Americans supporting it, illustrates just how out of touch many party leaders are. And a new report from a group of Democratic insiders — which tries to answer the question of why the party didn’t do better in House and Senate races in 2020 — concludes that party officials, cozy in their coastal enclaves, had no idea of the concerns of some of their Democratic voters. And therein lies an opportunity for Republicans.
