NOT GOOD NEWS FOR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY …
As reported at The Hill, a recent Hill.TV/HarrisX American Barometer poll stated that 76% stated that they would not vote for a “socialist” political candidate, while only 24% said they would. This comes in sharp contrast to the Democrat party that moves further and further to the LEFT. So much so that a Socialist nearly became the party’s Presidential candidate. The liberal media has touted Democrat socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the darling of the Democrat party. Even DNC chair Tom Perez has called her the future of the Democrat party. If that is the case, the Democrat party does not appear to have much of a future. In their echo chamber, the Progressives and socialists believe that America is on their side. This poll shows that type of thought could not be further from the truth. The poll shoes that even Democrats who like Bernie Sanders, who is a socialist, and voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016, would not vote for a socialist. The Democrat party is in for an upcoming Civil War for the soul of its party.

In a new Hill.TV/HarrisX American Barometer poll released Tuesday, an overwhelming majority of respondents, 76 percent, said they would not vote for a “socialist” political candidate, while only 24 percent of those polled said they would vote for a socialist candidate.
Ocasio-Cortez is one of several candidates running for office this year that labels themselves as a socialist. The Democratic Socialists of America told The Associated Press that 42 candidates at the federal, state and local levels have earned a formal endorsement from the group.
Although Sanders remains highly popular among Democratic voters (and Americans generally), in the American Barometer survey, 64 percent of Democratic respondents said they would not vote for a “socialist.” Among respondents who said they voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 general election, 59 percent said they would not support a self-described socialist.
High-ranking Democrats have generally reacted either neutrally or negatively to the idea of socialism rising within the party.
