But others argue the push to reframe the Democratic agenda and bring in new leadership is premature. Democratic strategist Rodell Mollineau, the co-founder of the consulting firm Rokk Solutions, says anti-Trump resistance is enough for the time being.

“Republicans took back the House and the Senate in 2010 more or less with no message, except for that they were against everything that Obama was for, and no policies,” Mollineau told Business Insider. “So this idea that … six months later you need to have all of your policies ready and a brand new message — I think that’s ridiculous.”

Mollineau does not deny Democrats have work to do to in preparation for the 2018 midterm elections, but said that recent special election losses do not mean change must happen immediately.

“Had we won these elections I think that there would still be tough questions that Democrats need to answer and problems they need to fix in order to be successful long term,” he said. “There’s still more that we need to do — we’re not there yet and we’ve got a year and a half to figure it out.”
