Default Biden's interpretation of the Democrats' losses

Just the other day, President Biden blamed the Democrats' stunning losses Tuesday (November 2) on the gridlock in Washington--which, presumably, has discomfited voters. (Why, Washington--meaning, of course, the Republicans--must simply "get something done.")

Two of his surrogates today (November 7), on the Sunday shows, echoed that claim.

But one is left to wonder: If the voters wished to send a different message--i.e. that they were dissatisfied with the product being offered by the Democratic candidates which they rejected--just how might they have expressed that message at the polls?

There is, in logic, an axiom known as the falsification principle. Basically, it just notes that if one is going to make a meaningful assertion, then one must be willing and able to show what would be required to refute that assertion.

So, if the assertion is that the voters, across the nation, did not really wish to send a message of dissatisfaction with the Democrats' offerings, just what might the voters have done to send such a message without any ambiguity?
