Conservative power couple Deneen and Tom Borelli say the Democrats continue to lose support because all they can do is bash President Donald Trump, including the liberal Black Congressional Caucus which has refused to meet with the commander-in-chief.
"They have a marketing problem," Deneen, a correspondent for Conservative Review, told Newsmax TV's Steve Malzberg. "Their message is resist Trump, impeach Trump, and investigate Trump.
"They're not talking about jobs and the economy, which is what the election was about – and so Middle America, they don't want to hear this nonsense and this rhetoric. How am I going to feed my kids and keep my family safe? That's what they want to hear."
Tom Borelli, a contributor to Conservative Review, agreed.
"The Democrat leaders have really been funding the extreme left, and this is what you're getting, and it is a brand and marketing problem, and it's horrible for the party," he told Malzberg. ". . . There was a Pew Research poll out this week that said more Americans think Democrats are extreme."

Deneen, an African American, said she was outraged the liberal Congressional Black Caucus on Wednesday declined an invitation for a follow-up meeting with Trump because of his policies.
"It's really outrageous when you think about the neighborhoods, the communities that these representatives represent — Los Angeles, Baltimore, Chicago — my goodness, these cities are on fire. High unemployment, crime, poor schools," she said.
"You would think they would come to the table for their constituents, but this is all political because they want to keep black voters angry and mad to continue the false narrative — the lies, really, that conservatives or Republicans are racist and they don't like you . . ."
Tom Borelli added: "The last thing they need is the loyal black vote to abandon the Democratic Party and what they do know is, if Trump got into the inner cities, lower taxes, created jobs . . . to get people who don't go to college to become plumbers, electricians . . . that would just boost employment in the urban city.
"But it would decimate the core voter, so this is all politics, and I hope that people really wake up to why this is happening."
Deneen Borelli also said there has been a spike in hate speech among liberals.
"It's outrageous – it's actually sickening to the point, to see and hear what these individuals are saying on a regular basis," she said. "It's vile, it's vulgar, it's vicious, and they have doubled down, especially since they keep losing all of these seats across the country," she said.
"It started with Hollywood, Kathy Griffin, and the play right here, locally in New York City.
"They are unhinged, just like you said, and they've gotten worse," she said, referring to a photo in which Griffin holds a bloody Trump mask and a "Julius Caesar" production in Central Park, in which an actor resembling the president is assassinated.
