Democratic strategist Robin Biro chided his party Friday night for focusing too much on the Russia collusion story and not coming up with a coherent message for voters.


Biro argued on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” that everyday Americans are not captivated by the Russia story — despite its wall-to-wall media coverage — and instead are “more concerned about what’s happening at home with their pocketbooks.”

“But right now the Russian meddling story just — it’s just not really resonating with every day Americans,” he said.

Fox host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson asked Biro why Democrats are so invested in the Russia story despite voters’ lack of interest.

“It’s really Democrats who have been driving this,” Carlson said. “If they don’t know anything, why are they so obsessed and why aren’t they talking about things that Americans actually care about?”

“I wish I knew. I take a lot of issue with my own party. We have — there is a lot that we can improve on. We need a coherent message to deliver to Americans other than just resist,” Biro explained. “We need to be giving them ideas where we can maybe improve their lives other than just giving them, you know, promises of resist.”
