Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chair Sean Maloney said the party has a “likability problem.”
The Daily Caller reports:
“[Y]ou’ll find broad agreement in our caucus, from the conservative Democrats to the most progressive, that we have a likability problem,” Maloney said in the [New York Times] interview.
Maloney said that Democrats don’t do a good enough job reaching out to Americans in areas that “have not benefited from the global economy.”
“I think that most of the voters…think that we’re out of touch, they think we’re elitist, we think we are better than they are.”
Maloney mentioned the unpopularity with the average voter of the word “Latinx,” a “gender neutral” alternative to Latino or Latina coined by liberals. Only 2% of Hispanics use the word “Latinx” to refer to themselves.
