A lot of the talk surrounding Jon Ossoff‘s loss last night has been about whether Democrats have a strong enough message that resonates beyond opposition to President Trump. The hosts of The View discussed this very issue this morning.
Joy Behar in particular said that maybe Democrats don’t have that strong message:
“The fact remains that since Donald Trump won the election… the Democrats have lost three elections. So if you’re using Donald Trump as your basis for your campaign, I don’t know if it’s working. I don’t think people are going towards the Democrats… and it’s a problem.”
The media narrative about the Ossoff-Karen Handel race being about––at least in part–-a referendum on Trump led to tweets like this last night:
You were right. #winning

Behar brought up how Ossoff didn’t even live in the district and said that the Democratic party in general needs “charismatic” candidates and a clearer message.
Jedediah Bila also pointed out the massive amount of out-of-state money Ossoff received in the special election.
