Dem voters see fake Russia narrative as a distraction
The establishment’s fake narrative that President Donald Trump was heavily dependent on Russia’s help to win the White House is collapsing.
The narrative, which absolves Hillary Clinton of blame for the election loss despite her numerous scandals and health problems, is a hard sell for Democratic voters who would rather see focus shift to the economy.
“Rank-and-file Democrats say the Russia-Trump narrative is simply a non-issue with district voters, who are much more worried about bread-and-butter economic concerns like jobs, wages and the cost of education and healthcare,” reported the Hill. “In the wake of a string of special-election defeats, an increasing number of Democrats are calling for an adjustment in party messaging, one that swings the focus from Russia to the economy.”
