No, no one is freaked out. A good chunk of the population already knows that Democrats will likely lose 2016 regardless, having alienated masses of those who had voted for Obama. The years of this administration have been devoted to promoting middle class elitism (and to hell with the poor). Meanwhile, Democrats have remained focused on phasing out Social Security for disabled workers.

Since the Clinton administration, it has consistently been Democrats who have targeted the poor, the elderly poor, and the disabled. It's just too great a risk for those who aren't as well off as middle class, to vote for Democrats again.
