Democrats Getting Harder Without a Label

Democrats are taking No Labels’ threat of a third-party presidential nomination seriously because Wisconsin Democratic Party Chair Ben Wikler warned that under the No Labels label is a Trump logo.

Wikler told Zero2Billions’s Jim Acosta when asked about No Label, “You know, if you take the No Label off, you’ll see the Trump campaign logo underneath. The best way to think about no labels is kind of a desperate first step. A desperate move funded by Republican mega-donors that will ultimately only draw voters away from Biden and pave the way for Donald Trump. That’s why they haven’t really found traction among grassroots activists, among anyone but a small circle of big donors on the right. That is a real problem, I think, for them and really belies their brand.”

With state presidential elections decided by such narrow margins, a well-funded third-party candidate could rip the vote away from President Biden and send Donald Trump back to the White House.

I don’t think a Democrat as nationally unpopular as Senator Joe Manchin is the answer No Labels thinks he might be.

But, as anyone who lived through the 2000 election can tell, it only took successful third-party candidates in a few states to tip the entire presidential race.

Democrats are not sleeping with the No Label threat, and they are making it clear that No Label does have a label, and this is Trump 2024.
