Democrats Moved Far to the Left

A refrain the Media is popular at promoting (using their Casual Expressions to cloak an evidence free opinion as a fact) is that the Republicans have moved far to the Right.

This is simply incorrect, according to long term polling on 10 political questions that Pew Research Center has been doing since 1994.



The only Question Republicans moved to the right 25 years on, was about Enviro Laws hurting the economy, and only then by a few percentage points.

But Democrats, on everything from Defence to Racial Discrimination to Poverty to Immigration, moved to the left by double digit percentages.

That's not correct; Republicans moved right on several issues. The environmental issue saw the biggest jump, but it's interesting to note that the social justice issue has the biggest gap on these graphs of the individual issues.

The Republicans moved to the left on several issues; the only issue that moved substantially to the right by double digit percentages was the enviro laws cost jobs and poverty-gov questons. When the republicans did move to the right, it was by a few points beyond the MoE. Issues the Republicans tacked leftwards on more than made up for those small increases.

The Democrats not only moved far to the left by double digits on 9 out of 10 issues, including immigration by a whopping 50%, they didn't tack to the right on one single issue.

So the heart of the claim is correct: The Dems moved far to the left whereas the Republicans generally did not.

They fell off the cliff on the left. That’s how far off the chart left is today.

Liberal media does crazy things to their viewers.

So, was America great under Eisenhower, or was it Roosevelt?

you mean the party that now believes in terminating babies after birth, changing your gender as a pre-schooler, hates white people, and tacitly supports ANTIFA is now a bit radical?

WHO KNEW?!!!!!

I was hanging out in my neighbors garage talking with him and another neighbor on Sunday. There were beers and football involved, normal American stuff. Politics came up (I didn’t start it), and since we were on the subject and I know one of them is a pretty dedicated Democrat, I asked which candidate was his favorite out of the bunch. He said he didn’t like the front runners, would probably vote libertarian as a protest vote if one of them became the nominee, and was seriously reconsidering his status as a Democrat. He doesn’t like Trump, but really doesn’t like the anti-family stance of the party.
Thought that was an interesting anecdote.

that's not isolated, i know a few people like that too who would have probably voted for Democrats, but now they think there are too many assholes in the party that it's too extreme and too anti family.

I know plenty of people claiming they don't like Trump but can't vote for anyone else. You don't have to like an efficient leader.

If you want to see how far left the Democrats have moved, just check out Bill Clinton's 1995 State Of The Union address where he talks about illegal aliens. Now we know where Trump got all his good ideas!

Don't worry, if he can't commit to what's right, and NOT see the high road, and what is at steak, by not Electing Trump.
Then he'll be whipped up into a fervor by November of next year. He'll be telling you how Trump can't win, because Russia and he grabs women by the pussy.
The Liberals have already said their strategy, is going to be rewinding the tape and repeating the TDS we've already heard for 3 years.

You mean the Jew "Kill the Fetus" Party in Israel? Abortion is legal in Israel!

The Left move more to the left to protect all the Republicans on today's Republican big govt. handouts to their losers.
