Why ‘wokeness’ is the biggest threat to Democrats in 2022

CNN published this video item, entitled “Why ‘wokeness’ is the biggest threat to Democrats in 2022” – below is their description.

As Democrats gear up for the 2022 midterms, they know their biggest challenge likely comes from within their own party: the rise of “woke culture” on the far left. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains how Democrats need to navigate this self-made minefield and push back on Republicans’ anti-woke messaging if they want to score big wins in the upcoming election.
