“Election results suggest that in a lot of areas people were able to separate their economic frustrations from who they selected as their representative,” Westwood told Neil Cavuto on Fox Business. “But those economic frustrations are still there.”
She added that because of their unexpected successes, Democrats may continue “to ignore those economic struggles that people are having just because it did not cost them as dearly as they thought it would.”
“I think at this point the Democrats, President Biden, they are a long way from having to face any consequences for their handling of the economy again,” she claimed. “That could start to factor into the decisions they make about the way they talk about this kind of stuff and about the decisions they make based on the economic data that we’re seeing.”
Westwood further noted that voters won’t get to make their voices heard on current leadership again for a while.
Analyzing the results of Election Day, she said “voters did not necessarily hold Democrats responsible for those inflation numbers.” Thinking that they would “was an assumption that Republicans made.”
“It was not clear that voters really bought that,” she continued.
