Former Bill Clinton adviser James Carville told MSNBC’s Morning Joe today that the Democrats’ big problem is messaging.
He is super annoyed that people think Democrats want to defund the police.
How did that happen, James?

From FOX News:
James Carville says Democrats need better messaging in 2024 to fix voters’ ‘massive misunderstanding’
Democratic strategist James Carville said Tuesday that Democrats need to focus more on messaging in 2024 and blamed the party and the media for “letting people go to the polls” with a “massive misunderstanding” of what they’re voting for.
“That said, looking ahead to ’24, what can Democrats learn about how they ran the campaign, regardless of outcome, how they ran their campaigns in ’22?” Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” asked.
Carville said more people heading to the polls believe Democrats will defund the police then people who believe Republicans will “shut down the government” and cut Social Security and Medicare.
“So, I would criticize Democratic messaging and the media for letting people go to the polls with massive misunderstanding of what the consequences they are voting on. I think that regardless of what happens tonight, we’ve got to be much better and much more focused on messaging in the 2024 cycle,” he added.

It’s never the actual platform, it’s how you “message it”
They never think people are rejecting their ideas, it’s just we don’t understand.

He just doesn’t get it.
They really don’t get it. It isn’t a messaging issue. It’s a policy issue.

Progressives believe the only reason the people would reject their utopian goals is either ignorance or malice. https://t.co/6wA7PX3Osp

Yeah, that’s it, James. It’s the messaging. You guys just need to do a better job with your messaging. 😂 https://t.co/aHZ2lNZBnE

They always think the problem was the “messaging,” not that they actually f***ed everything up horribly and couldn’t gaslight everybody into thinking it didn’t really happen. https://t.co/OUqOuOkm2v
