The Democrats broke a huge election record that could be disastrous for them.
They are desperately trying to turn things around in just three weeks.
A shocking new poll has thrown the Democratic Party into a state of chaos.
The Democrats have a serious election issue that they need to deal with fast.
While the media are in love with the Democratic field that’s full of radical leftists, average voters are uneasy.
They’re finding it hard to find a candidate that they’re sure they want to vote for.
No Democrat candidate is able to inspire widespread loyalty.
In fact a new poll shows that two thirds of Iowa voters haven’t even decided who they want to vote for yet.
While the underdogs in the primary may see this as good news because they still have a shot at the nomination, it’s bad news for the general election.
It shows that Democrats are unhappy with the field and unwilling to commit to any candidate.
Joe Biden is old and slipping, Bernie Sanders is an open communist, Elizabeth Warren only has a plan to crash the economy, Mike Bloomberg is trying to buy the nomination and Pete Buttigieg is a snobbish small town mayor without any experience.
But those are the choices that the Democrats are left with.
Voters are trying to decide which of them is the least bad, and that is a hard call.
It’s no wonder that Iowa voters can’t make up their minds.
According to the Washington Examiner:
According to the latest Des Moines Register poll, which Bernie Sanders’s campaign says reflects a surge by the Vermont senator, 40% of likely Democratic caucusgoers had made up their mind. Almost 50% of respondents, of whom 20% named Sanders as their first choice, said they could change their minds before the caucus.
That, plus the 13% who said they don’t support any one candidate yet, means more than a majority of Iowa Democrats planning on caucusing in February haven’t decided on a candidate. A CBS poll of Iowa and New Hampshire released Jan. 6 similarly found 31% of respondents certain of their candidate choice.
The article goes on to say how unusual this indecision is.
In January 2016, 14% of Democrats were undecided on a candidate, in what became one of the narrowest caucuses in the state’s history. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton defeated Sanders by 0.25%. A RealClearPolitics average of polls in the last 10 days before that year’s caucus found Clinton holding a 4% lead over Sanders — meaning Sanders still managed to win over a number of Democrats in the last few days.
In 2008, the number of undecideds was even fewer in a much more crowded field. According to a poll taken in late December 2007, 7% of likely Iowa Democratic caucusgoers were undecided. Despite a number of Democrats telling pollsters they were certain of their choice, Illinois Sen. Barack Obama still managed to pull off an upset victory over his senatorial colleague from New York, Clinton, who finished in third place.
This is why most Americans don’t think the Democrats will be able to beat Donald Trump in 2020.
