A majority of Americans have an unfavorable view of the Democrat Party according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center.
Could it be that its members do not appreciate the new, younger socialist members of the party pulling it further and further to the Left? Could it be that several top Democrats, including some Democratic presidential candidates, are embracing an impeachment process that a majority of the public does not want? Could it be that Democrats are fraught by multi-trillion dollar environmental plans?
BizPac Review reports a leading factor is a new push for open borders, the decriminalization of illegally crossing the border, and abolishing private healthcare (in favor of a nationalized one like Obamacare):
According to a new Pew Research Center survey, 52% of Americans currently hold an unfavorable view of the Democratic party. That’s a 10-point spike from September 2018, when 42% viewed the party unfavorably.
That’s shocking when you consider that the mainstream media are overwhelmingly left-wing and tend to report more positively on Democrats than on Republicans.
The Pew poll shows that — contrary to Democratic talking points — 67% of Americans oppose decriminalizing illegal border crossings which are causing the flood of illegal aliens into the United States.
Similarly, 55% of Americans oppose replacing private insurance with a government insurance plan like Obamacare.
According to the report, a majority of Democrats also disapprove of their party’s interest in requiring reparations to be paid to African Americans for years of slavery in this country.
While Democratic presidential candidates are pandering to those on the far-Left, a majority of the party disapproves of these new policies. Among those who disapprove is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who have repeatedly told members of “the squad” and others to dial down their rhetoric.
Per BizPac Review:
As it is, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — the leader of the Democratic Party — warned her fellow leftists to stop screeching about impeachment and open borders and to rein in their radical rhetoric.
Otherwise, she warns, Democrats will surely be steamrolled by President Donald Trump in 2020.
