Roland Martin talks with top Democratic pollster Cornell Belcher about what President Obama and the Democratic Party should do next.
Belcher told Roland, “Arguably for the last year while Democrats were legislating, Republicans were campaigning.” Belcher also stated one lesson the White House should have learned is that “you got to sell, sell, sell, you can not stop selling.” Belcher said, “we can’t just put out good legislation and think, oh, people are going to get it. Oh health care reform, they’re going to get it because they want it.” Belcher cautioned against allowing Republicans to define the debate. He said, “if the Republicans define the debate we’re going to lose the debate, so we have got to be a lot more aggressive about that.”
