Democrats on what's motivating their voters and where the party should go next

What issues do they see as most motivating for voters? With all the talk about Ron DeSantis -- a swing state governor who has won big -- why isn't there equal buzz about Gretchen Whitmer? What does the last week mean for President Biden?
