Disappearing Democrats

“Congressman, let's talk a bit about part of the disappearing base of the Democratic party: Unions. Every election year and every off-election year, you have the heads of unions show up with people like you saying: ‘Yeah, we're with the Democratic Party.’ The membership flees, large portions of the membership flees, when it comes to actually voting for a Democrat. How did you lose them?” asks Morning Joe senior contributor Mike Barnicle of Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) during a conversation about the strained relationship between the Democratic Party and unions. Listen to Ryan’s response here. Only on MSNBC.
