A Pew Research Center report out last year, for example, showed that while the Republican views shifted slightly to the right from 1994 to 2017, Democrats has moved far to the left. Nearby is the table we ran when that report came out.
A Gallup poll from 2015 pointed to the same trend. It found that Democrats had become far more liberal over the previous 15 years. Republicans hadn’t changed in their views much. In fact, they had moved leftward on some social issues.
This year, the Democratic field is full of self-declared socialists. And the Democratic party has embraced a radical agenda of socialized health care — via the artfully named “Medicare for all” — free college, a doubling of the federal minimum wage, “guaranteed” federal jobs, eliminating ICE, a government takeover of corporate boards, and so on.
Prominent liberals routinely say the most incredibly extremist things, without anyone batting an eye.
Case in point is actor James Cromwell, who recently promised violence if Republicans retained control of Congress.
“If we don’t stop (President Trump) now, then we will have a revolution for real,” he said at an awards ceremony this week. “Then there will be blood in the streets.”
You’ll try in vain to find any Democrat who — after lecturing the public on the dangers of Trump’s word choices — has denounced Cromwell’s rhetoric.
Despite journalists’ endless efforts to portray Democrats as reasonable, mainstream moderates, the public is getting wise to their increasingly extremist views.
If Democrats take the House of Representatives, and Nancy Pelosi once again is the Speaker, she’ll lead progressives in an effort to transform America in accordance with the increasingly progressive views of her party’s base. With that in mind, it would do voters good to ignore the over the top rhetoric of Democrats, and to instead focus on the bread-and-butter success that Donald Trump and the GOP have been able to provide. The economy is soaring, and that’s in no small part thanks to the tax reform and regulation cutting efforts put together by Trump and the GOP legislature. The slideshow below is a graphical vision of America’s success under Trump.
