New Poll: Voters See Democrats as Extremists

In case you missed it this week, 20 Democrats hopeful to take back the White House in 2020 participated in their first election debates.

Candidates were split on two stages between two nights, with each hour proving Democrats have officially abandoned any moderate position with a full embrace of the most radical leftist positions. Whether it's destroying the private health insurance system, raising taxes on the middle class, providing "free" healthcare to illegal aliens or supporting abortion up until nine months, candidates made their positions clear.

But according to a new Rasmussen poll, the majority of voters believe the positions Democrats are taking land far to the left of their own beliefs.

 Voters see most of the Democratic presidential candidates as more liberal than they are and rate their agenda as outside the mainstream.


A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 25% of Likely U.S. Voters consider most of the announced candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination to be about the same as they are in political terms. Fifty-four percent (54%) say most of these candidates are more liberal than they are, while only 13% think they are more conservative.

Last night the "moderate" in the race, former Vice President Joe Biden, performed poorly and his staff is panicking. 

Meanwhile, Democrat voters say their main objective is to beat President Trump. From a CBS News poll

Democrats have different thoughts on what "electability" entails, on what swing voters will want, and there is some division over what the party's message ought to be. They are split on whether the party's message should emphasize returning the country to how it was before Mr. Trump (47%), or whether they should argue for an even more progressive agenda than they had under President Obama (53%.) This something-known-versus-something-new dynamic helps explain some of the candidate preferences across key states.

With the socialist leap to the left, beating Trump is highly unlikely.
