This past Tuesday was an election night that saw a few key victories by Democrats unfold across the nation, but before folks on the left get too awfully excited and become delusional about their chances in 2018, there’s something they need to know.
A new poll from CNN shows the favorability of the Democratic Party is the lowest it’s been in 25 years.
Thanks, Hillary and Obama.
From Truth Revolt:
The numbers haven’t been this bad in 25 years:
Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992.
The rating includes low favorable ratings from some core Democratic groups, including nonwhites (48%) and people under 35 years old (33%). The numbers come amid recent feuds and divisions in the Democratic Party, as former interim chair Donna Brazile’s new book has unveiled new questions about infighting during the 2016 presidential campaign.
So, yeah. In other words, Democrats ought not get too happy, happy, happy, about making a little splash in a great big pond, because the ripples in the water still aren’t headed in their direction.
If they really want to win back voters they need to do two things.
One, drop the ridiculous political correctness they keep pushing. Secondly, stop being so far to the left and pull back to the center.
Until they do that, well, they better keep getting therapy to help them cope with losing because they’re going to be doing a lot of it.
