WATCH: Most Americans Think the Far-Left Democrat Agenda Sucks
The Democrats took to the stage for the second 2020 debate on Tuesday. I opted to watch WWE Smackdown instead. Bray Wyatt using his supernatural powers to attack Finn Balor was much more grounded in reality. As opposed to half of the 217 people running to be president trying to out far-left each other. It was a rerun from the last debate (see WATCH: Bill Maher SKEWERS the ‘Woke Olympics’ of the Democrat Debates and #CrowderDebateStream! Dan Crenshaw, John Stossel and MORE Guest!), only with two extra white guys at the end. From what I can gather this morning, the big idea was eliminating private insurance to give free reparations to undocumented Bernie Bros. Or something. Though while the folks behind the podiums think their ideas are the cat's pajamas, most Americans think they su-diddly-uck. Even MSNBC, yes THAT MSNBC, had to admit as much. As those rabble-rousers at the Free Beacon pointed out.
On the issue of Medicare for All without private health insurance, Democratic voters support it by a 2-1 margin whereas a majority of all Americans oppose it. Democrats are split on the question of decriminalizing border crossings, while almost two-thirds of the electorate opposes decriminalization.
Democratic voters overwhelmingly support making national health insurance available to undocumented immigrants, but most Americans oppose this. As for reparation payments, a slight plurality of Democrats support this measure, while over 60 percent of Americans oppose it.
The conventional wisdom is the lesson Democrats learned from Donald Trump is to support what you believe unapologetically. This is silly on two fronts. One, I'd argue that the only thing Donald Trump actually believes in is Donald Trump and everyone telling Donald Trump how wonderful Donald Trump is. But as for the issues Trump ran on, they were all popular with the American people. Secure borders, lower taxes, a booming economy, and not being politically correct pu$$!es all the time.
The ideas Democrats are pushing are popular in Park Slope and Palo Alto, and maybe a few faculty lounges in the middle somewhere. The more debates the candidates have, the further to the left they're going. While America waves them away.
