April 20, 2014, 11:51 am DNC head: Midterms not about Obama
By Erik Wasson The midterm elections will not be a referendum on President Obama's performance in the White House, the Democratic National Committee chairwoman said Sunday.
No, absolutely not, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC's "Meet the Press." These elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running.
NBC's David Gregory asked Wasserman Schultz if keeping the Senate and taking back the House are an uphill climb given the president's low poll numbers and the unpopularity of ObamaCare.
Forty-nine percent of those polled in the most recent Gallup survey say they disapprove of the president's job performance. Only 45 percent said they approve.
Wasserman Schultz said that the election will be hard-fought and Democrats can prevail if they can get base voters to the polls.
This election is going to be quite competitive all the way to the end, but we have to turn our voters out. That's the bottom line, she said. There are millions of people who understand the benefits to the healthcare law.
She argued that the GOP will be hurt by extreme Tea Party candidates in this cycle, adding we have countless elections now that Democrats have won because the Republicans have nominated extremists that they're voters reject, and that's the advantage we will have going into this election.
And if you're a Democrat, just make up lies.
“Democrats can prevail if they can get base voters to the polls”
Democrat base voters - you mean the dead ones?
Why shouldn’t it be about Obama?
Don’t the dems want to use their best asset to get billions of votes? Obama is like the best president we’ve ever hads!!!!1!!1 Huh?!?!?!?
DWS is FOS.
I disagree. This election will be all about Obama and his “vision” for our country.
They say it is never about Obama, with a great deal of help from the Ministry of Propaganda(MSM), they will do all they can to effect that.
Keep dreamin Erik. :-)
Debbie Wassername says: Democrats prevail if we can get our base voters to the polls....and that’s why I’m doing lap dances at the border.
Whistling past the graveyard
No, they are about president what’shername, Jarrett.
Obama is the black guy you can’t mention because he’s black and you, of course, are an unrepentent racist because you think his foreign policy is a disaster, the economy is a wreck and no amount of happy talk from the WH is going to change the FACT of it, and my copays have skyrocketed along with my meds because Obamacare is a total cluster*.
Why not? They’ve made every election since 2000 about Bush.
What the Captain of the Titanic would have said if he'd been the head of the DNC.
“Extreme” candidates. The left wing called Romney “extreme”. I know a liberal voter, who hates anyone with an “R” after their name, who said “If you hadn’t nominated an extremist like Romney you might have won.”
