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.
DEMOCRAT ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH AMERICA …
In a recent NBC, WSJ poll, 56% of American polled believe that the Democrat party is out of touch with Americans. With Democrats wanting to abolish ICE, being more pro-illegal than US citizen, being against the Trump tax cuts, being against an economy what has lowest numbers ever for black and Hispanic. Democrats are making Democrat socialist and political know-nothing novice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the future of their party. Even Democrats are having an issue with that.
42 Democrats socialist are running in 2018 and the Democrat talking head in the below video blows it off as nothing. 42 folks, that is an astonishing number. They claim that it is only a few fringe Democrats that are calling to abolish ICE. Really? Since when has the Democrat Senator from New York Kirsten Gillibrand been a fringe candidate?
It is obvious that the Democrat party has lost touch with Americans, and they fact that they cannot see or accept this is the very reason why they cannot get over the fact that Donald Trump defeated Hillary.
Former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley … Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hurts the party, Congress and even America
Joe Lieberman Calls for Rep. Joe Crowley to run as Independent against Ocasio-Cortez in November …
As reported at Mediaite, former Democrat Sen. Joe Lieberman has penned an OPED calling for voters in New York to vote for Joe Crowley Over Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The issue, Ocasio-Cortez defeated Crowley recently in the Democrat primary. However, even though she has been prematurely anointed the face of the Democrat party, her recent gaffs have been monumental. The 28 year old political novice has shown in a recent Firing Line interview that she is not ready for prime time, nor has a grasp of knowledge of the issues. She even struggled with economic issues when she supposedly graduated with an economics degree. Mayne it was economics for socialists. That being said, many center and establishment Democrats are worried that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is not the face of the party, but the wedge that will divide it. Lieberman Endorses Rep. Joe Crowley and called for voters to send him back to DC. Lieberman states that a Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez‘s victory over top Democrat Joe Crowley was stunning and the candidate herself has been embraced as symbolic of a new generation of Democratic leaders.
She has received criticism in recent days over her Firing Line interview, but she’s now getting what can only be called a massive publicity gift: a former Democrat-turned-Independent who spoke at the 2008 Republican National Convention calling on voters to reject her candidacy.
Lieberman has an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal arguing at the top Ocasio-Cortez’s victory “seems likely to hurt Congress, America and the Democratic Party.”
And that’s why Lieberman is now calling on voters to vote for Crowley on the Working Families Party ticket (Lieberman himself famously lost his 2006 Senate primary but won as a third party candidate). This, of course, is dependent on whether Crowley actually wants to do it, but Lieberman writes in detail why Ocasio-Cortez should not be elected to Congress:
It would appear that the Democrats are in the midst of their own Civil War, Progressives/Socialists vs. establishment Democrats.
Firing Line PBS Margaret Hoover: Alexandria Ocasio Cortez Steps in It, Called Israel “Occupiers of Palestinian Land” & Says Capitalism Will “Not Always Exist” (VIDEO)
SO THE FUTURE OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS A CLUELESS SOCIALIST?
This weekend Alexandria Ocasio Cortez held an interview with Firing Line and Margaret Hoover on PBS. Let’s say it did not go very well. As reported st the Daily Caller, the 27-year old new found darling of the LEFT called Israel occupiers of Palestinian land. When pushed on the comment, Ocasio Cortez mumbled and struggled to give an answer then ultimately admitted that she does not know anything on the issue of what she was talking about. Imagine that? She is a novice who has been thrust into the limelight because the Democrats have nothing. She then, sans a clue, went on to say that that unemployment is low ‘because everyone has two jobs” and “unemployment is low because people are working 60, 70, 80 hours a week, and can barely feed their kids.” Needless to say, this is not how the unemployment rate works, bit what could you expect from a novice, clueless socialist.
Establishment Democrats are in deep worry mode as this far-leftist socialist is becoming the face of the Democrat party and her insane rhetoric is going to be used in political ads for the midterm elections. It has already been said by DNC Chair Tom Perez that she is the future of the Democrat party, yet other Democrats realize she is divisive and tearing the party in half. Americans might want to take this into at when voting for the 2018 midterm elections, the future of the Democrats is socialism.
Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’
Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.
“Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs,” Ocasio-Cortez explained, lamenting that people are employed but having to work long hours, “Capitalism has not always existed in the world and will not always exist in the world,” she continued.
In an ironic twist, just two weeks before the bungling interview, Ocasio-Cortez had been bragging on twitter about her economics degree and wondering if her assumed future House colleagues would be able to match her educational prowess. In a tweet, the socialist asked “Wondering: How many other House Democrats have a degree in Economics like I do? Trying to find who out here is going to be in the Gini Coefficient Appreciation Squad.”
Ocasio-Cortez graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics and international relations from Boston University’s College of Arts and Sciences just a six years ago
WAY TO WIN OVER THE INDEPENDENTS …
And the LEFT continues to act insanity, this time their ICE protest in Ohio consisted of chants of “f*ck the police.” To those Independents and Democrats that wonder what happened to their party and why it has ignored you, take a good look at what the LEFT has become today.
Protestors gathered in Columbus, Ohio to protest the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) by erecting a 32-foot-tall tripod, but began chanting “fuck the police” after police officers deconstructed the tripod Monday morning.
In a Facebook live video published by WSYX ABC 6, protestors can be heard chanting, “fuck the police,” repeatedly as police officers broke down the 32-foot-tall tripod and placed it in the back of the police van.
In total, eight people involved in the protest were arrested according to Marshall:
