In describing the final vote for passage of the Build Back Better Act, this article says, "And if Democrats feared the political consequences [of voting for the bill], it was not evident from the final tally, which reflected support among those from the most competitive districts."

Lawmakers from competitive districts should be the most eager to see this through, but the way this passage is phrased literally suggests to readers that they could reasonably be ashamed to vote for it. Such insidious anti-Democratic bias is increasingly typical of The New York Times' reporting, and would seem to explain why voters support Democratic policies so much more strongly than they support Democratic politicians.
