Fox’s Laura Ingraham Already Reciting Eulogy for GOP: They Didn’t Tell ‘The Story of America’


Fox News host Laura Ingraham critiqued the Republican Party’s midterm push tonight, saying that Democrats are better at “telling the story of America” and “emotional anecdotes” that motivate voters to go to the polls.

“I think a lot of Republicans are frustrated that the wall hasn’t gotten built. They are directing their frustration, I think, at Congress,” Ingraham observed during the Fox News special coverage of the midterms tonight. “Trump is on the ballot, obviously, but the president is more popular than Congress. Both Republicans and Democrats.”

She continued:

“Trump has been carrying this party on his back for the last three or four weeks, especially. You also need great candidates, and you need candidates who can tell the story… Telling the story of America — the Republicans don’t seem to be able to do that. The Democrats are better at emotional anecdotes. Tugging at your heartstrings, the kid who can’t get his procedure covered by insurance, and it’s very emotional, and people like emotion, it’s good. Get away from the charts and graphs, get right to the people of the country.”

The pro-Trump pundit concluded that candidates who focus on voters’ emotions “usually will do better.”
