‘Face the Nation’ host John Dickerson speaks with a group of Pennsylvania voters about President Trump’s first few months in office, the future of the Democratic Party, and more.
Asked what the Democratic Party “means” to them right now, voters said:
VOTER 1: The Democratic Party seems to be lost. They seem to be lost because they let Republicans define who they are.
VOTER 2: They have to define who they are. They have to have a backbone about standing up for it, and not be bought out by anyone or swayed because they think they might lose their office. If you say you’re going to stand for something, you have to stand for it all the way.
VOTER 3: I’ve been a Democrat all my life. I think the Democrats not only are they out of touch, they have no interest in correcting the situation. They’re not doing any post-mortems. They’re writing off: ‘We don’t own the White House because of Putin, or because of WikiLeaks. What did WikiLeaks tells us by the way? Regardless of who was behind it? They confirmed that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment are liars, and they had their thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton.
So what are they basically saying? ‘If we hadn’t been caught lying, we’d be running the country right now.’
