It’s never too late to change parties because it seems the Democrats are imploding as they turn on each other. Many have seen increased infighting as they lose control as the midterms close in. Recently an attack that has made headlines is Senator Bernie Sanders. The wannabe-Presidental nominee has gone after two senators he believes are holding up primary legislation.
Sen. Sanders accosted senators Joe Manchin (D-VA) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) for not siding with other fellow Democrats on the recent controversial voting rights bill. He took to Twitter to let everyone know how he felt.
As the voting rights bill finally comes to the floor of the Senate, there is only one vote which will really matter. Will 50 Democrats vote to override the filibuster, protect American democracy and pass the bill, or will Manchin and Sinema vote with the GOP and let the bill die?— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) January 17, 2022
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is planning on voting Wednesday, but they may not be able to pass the legislation without these two senators. Currently, the squad has also voiced their concerns on the two senators by creating anti-Manchin ads in the last few weeks.
In an interview on “The View,” Senator Warnock (D-GA) claimed that Manchin and Sinema were both dismissing their 1965 moment by not passing this bill. This is in reference to the Civil Rights Acts.
.@SenatorWarnock calls the push to pass voting rights bills a "defining moral moment in America," telling #TheView that "process cannot trump what is right, what is true."— The View (@TheView) January 17, 2022

This infighting and seeing the Democrats turning on each other has many worried that there is no hope for the party moving forward. Many are seeing a red wave possible after the recent victory of Glenn Youngkin in Virginia.
