NYT: Democrat Campaign Websites Lack Clear Agenda

dem-logo.gif New York Times columnist Nate Silver and his news assistant took a closer look at the campaign websites for both Democrats and Republicans in 33 Congressional districts and came to the conclusion that the Democrats “are having trouble articulating a clear set of policy goals.” According to the post on the FiveThirtyEight blog, while the Republican agenda is focused on issues including the health care bill, the deficit, and immigration, Democrats tend to focus on issues that don’t necessarily lead to policy proposals like jobs, education, and energy. Silver’s post included a detailed breakdown of the issues highlighted on the various campaign websites and a look at the stats for the races in different states.

“Democrats, meanwhile, who two years ago seemed to have a glut of agenda items, are now having trouble articulating to their constituents exactly what a Democratic vote would gain them,” Silver writes.
