Just a few months ago, Democrats were flying high after taking over the House of Representatives by making big strides with suburban voters, including key battleground states such as Pennsylvania.
Part of the winning strategy for Democrats running in moderate districts was to distance themselves from then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to counter Republican messaging that a vote for a Democrat was essentially a vote for a left-wing speaker of the House.
Democrats understood that left-wing political extremism would not sell in swing districts, but now the discipline of the 2018 midterm election is being thrown out the window. The mask of moderation is being torn off, exposing Democrat extremism.
Thanks to newly elected representatives and recently announced 2020 presidential candidates, lurching too far Left is branding Democrats as the political party supporting socialism.
A Harvard CAPS/Harris Poll reported that 64 percent of registered voters believe the Democrat Party supports socialism. More concerning for Democrats, the poll also revealed 65 percent of the respondents backed a “mostly capitalistic” economic system, in contrast to 35 percent supporting a “mostly socialist” economic model.
It gets worse for Democrats. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll reported only 18 percent of Americans view socialism positively. The poll also reported only 25 percent of respondents were “enthusiastic/comfortable” with a socialist candidate, in contrast to 72 percent who had “reservations/very uncomfortable” with a socialist running for president.
