Although he is a member of the Democratic Party, that affiliation has not stopped Sen. Joe Manchin from stepping forward to speak the truth about what is really going on.
“It wasn’t a good message,” the West Virginia senator said of his party’s 2020 campaign strategy during a recent interview, according to Breitbart. “I mean, we let them tag us before basically, we could remind people who we are. We didn’t have a good message.”
But Manchin didn’t stop there. He went on to say how people went from being mad in 2016 to all-out scared in 2020, telling CBS’ Margaret Brennan:
I’ll be very honest with you, Margaret. Here’s the thing — four years ago in rural America, and America in general, voted for Donald Trump because Democrats were mad, independents were mad. They thought they had been left behind. And I will say this: West Virginia has felt like returning Vietnam veterans. We did everything this country asked and now we weren’t good enough and you left us behind. So they voted in record numbers. They went from being mad to being scared in 2020.
Manchin clarified that voters “were scared of this socialism that was thrown out there by a radical part of the so-called left that was throwing all this out that basically scared the bejeezus out of people.”
