The Democrat Party is gearing up for the 2018 and 2020 elections.
Experts are predicting a blue wave will sweep the left into power.
But the results of this poll show the Democrats could be destroyed for a generation.
Democrats Move Left
The Democrat base is dragging the party far to the left.
Liberals lost their minds after Donald Trump won the 2016 election.
Leftists now claim that Hillary Clinton was too “moderate” to have inspired Americans to turn out to vote.
So liberal voters are demanding their elected officials embrace the most extreme positions possible.
National Democrats are now supporting abolishing ICE, open borders, and a $32 trillion government-run healthcare scheme.
The embrace of these far-left policy proposals, combined with the full-throated support for identity politics, has left millions of Americas estranged from the party.
The Numbers Tell the Story
Some Americans were left wondering why the Democrats would take such a radical left turn.
The latest Gallup poll provides an answer.
Gallup found that more Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.
The survey showed 57 percent of Democrats hold a positive view of socialism.
Gallup’s numbers revealed a steep drop in the number of Democrats who favor capitalism.
Just 47 percent of Democrats hold a favorable opinion of capitalism, which is nine points down since 2016.
2016 was an important inflection point for the Democrats.
Democrat socialist Bernie Sanders caught fire in the Presidential primary.
The support for his candidacy showed that Republicans correctly viewed the Democrats as a European socialist party during the Obama years.
What These Numbers Mean for 2018 and Beyond
Democrats are still favored to gain seats in the 2018 midterms.
But will it be a wave election?
Will Americans judge a party that supports socialism as unfit to govern?
And will this love for socialism cause Democrats to nominate an unelectable candidate in 2020?
The talk about the Democratic Party moving more toward socialist policies in its platforms in this year’s midterm elections was muted with the failure of several socialist candidates to capture their party’s nomination in recent primary voting. And, although a majority – even if not an overwhelming one – of Democrats nationwide react positively to the word “socialism,” the strong antipathy toward socialism among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents suggests a political campaign favorable to socialism would not play well in a general election.
Despite this warning, every Democrat looking to make a name for themselves in the 2020 Presidential primary will plan to wave the socialist banner.
After the success of Bernie Sanders in 2016 and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez this year, Democrats know the energy in the party is with the socialists.
But this has been a disaster before.
George McGovern won the hearts of the party base with his unabashed leftism, but was tagged by his opponents as a supporter of “amnesty, abortion, and acid.”
Richard Nixon thrashed him, winning 49 states.
Will the Democrats run a replay of the 1972 election in 2020 by nominating an unelectable radical?
