During their first four debates, Democratic presidential candidates did not find much to say about the state of the US economy, because they did not want their words to contradict public opinion. These candidates were at the mercy of the directors' questions, each trying to differentiate themselves from others by talking about topics such as health and justice that were better for them than talking about jobs and salaries.
Another reason that prevented these candidates from talking about the economy was the great challenge that they could not cope with.
Democratic candidates have long talked strongly about the economy between 1992 and 2016, but now they face a huge dilemma they have not experienced since 1988: the White House is recovering from Republicans as the economy grows well. It is true that the economy is underperforming what President Donald Trump promised during his election campaign – a 3% growth rate, and there are also indications that the economy is weak.
But a report from the Department of Labor for Jobs published a few days ago shows that unemployment has dropped to an unprecedented half-century, wages are rising and inflation is under control. Since 2001, Gallup polls have asked Americans if they thought it was "the right time to find a good job." In May, 71% said yes, and of course, it's a record.
Some Democrats are trying to mislead Americans into finding themselves in a dire economic situation. Senator Kamala Harris of California has criticized President Trump for talking about stock market growth since he came to power. Yes, they work more than one job to live, but when we talk about work, we have to focus here that the American must work one job so that he or she can spend for themselves and their family. "
But this criticism is incorrect for two reasons: first, the unemployment rate is the best indicator of the strength of the economy;
As Democrats failed to convince voters that the economy was bad, Democratic candidate Joe Biden turned to health rather than wages and jobs, saying it was the most important issue for Americans.
Therefore, the best strategy for Democratic candidates is twofold: to change the economic issue and not touch it, and to hope that they are lucky to see an economic recession in the country.
