The recent 2022 midterm elections have demonstrated the deepening political division in America, and self-described “Democratic Socialist” Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has claimed that the Democratic Party abandoned the working class in favor of corporate donations and “beautiful people.”
During a recent appearance on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” Sanders indirectly referred to Hollywood and corporate donations as the cause of the Democratic Party’s shift away from representing the working class. Sanders claimed that during the times of FDR, Truman, and JFK, the Democratic Party was the party of the working class. However, in today’s world, the Republican Party has more adherents than the Democrats, according to Sanders.
Has @SenSanders given up on the democrats too? I know he’s more of a socialist than a radicalized democrat…

Sanders claimed that Democrats sought corporate donations to match the Republican Party over the last 30 years, leading to their abandonment of the working class.
Sanders has accurately picked up on crucial voting trends. For example, NBC reported that white working-class voters and Hispanic voters were trending Republican in the run-up to the 2022 midterm elections, especially in Florida, where Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) cruised to victory over Democrat Charlie Crist.
The 2022 midterm election results demonstrated that voters were dissatisfied with Joe Biden’s agenda, which led to inflation, crime, and a border crisis in under two years. This led to House Republicans gaining an advantage in recapturing the majority in the U.S. House.
Republicans built on their success from the 2020 campaign last fall by picking up 14 House seats to retake a narrow majority. The American people rejected big government lockdowns, left-wing defund police efforts, and anti-American critical race theory being taught in schools.
Left-wing Democratic radicals Stacey Abrams and Beto O’Rourke were also trounced in their comeback bids for governor in Georgia and Texas, respectively. Again, this demonstrated that the liberal media’s creations are not successful enough to win statewide in traditionally conservative states.
Sanders’ complaints indicate that today’s Democrats are hopelessly out of touch and arrogant, leading them to nominate radicals for high office. They are more concerned about pursuing a radical agenda of left-wing globalist elites than helping America’s hardworking, forgotten men and women.
One of the biggest losers of the night was RINO Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who failed in his dream to unseat his principled conservative Senate colleague, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT). Utah’s senior senator won re-election easily with more than 55% of his vote, despite Romney’s decision not to endorse Lee and to actively work against his re-election.
