Have Democrats finally found a winning message with their 'Better Deal' slogan?

The Democrats just rolled out their new slogan and already it's being roundly mocked by the left and the right. “A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future” strikes many as the same tired, cliché, consultant-created tagline that makes the Democrats seem pathetic, disingenuous, and out of touch. But others say focusing on economics is actually the right path for Democrats to re-take Congress and regain the faith of American voters. Does the Dems' new slogan bode well for their future?

Fox News and others pointed out the slogan's unfortunate resemblance to a pizza chain's ad campaign.

The slogan drew immediate taunts given its obvious similarity to the Papa John’s tagline, “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza. Papa John’s.”

But the eye-rolling didn't just come from the right: "Obama-era communications pros greeted the slogan with a collective facepalm."

Others say sure, it's a little corny—but so are most political slogans. What's important is that Democrats speak to economically anxious Americans and win their votes back from Trump and the Republicans.

Even ardent liberals are furious at what they see as a seriously missed opportunity. They say this is just one more example of Democrats showing up with a knife to a gunfight.

But other political observers say slogans won't make or break the Democrats in 2018. Talk is cheap, and actions speak louder than words.
