WATCH: Schumer and Pelosi Have Themselves Fooled, Claim Dems Will Be ‘Strongly United’ Behind Nominee…Even If It’s A Socialist
Democrats have themselves completely fooled thinking that they will all come together and unite like the Planeteers summoning Captain Planet when it comes to beating President Trump in 9 months.
During a joint press conference, Chuck Schumer claimed that even if self-proclaimed “Democratic Socialist” Bernie Sanders wins the nomination – which at this point looks very likely – that he would have the full support of Democrats.
“Primaries are primaries and there’re always lots of sturm and drang. You will see in a few months Democrats will be strongly united together, and we will be focused like a laser on beating Donald Trump. The enthusiasm that you last saw in 2008 to elect Barack Obama, you will see among Democrats this summer and fall to get Donald Trump out of office.”
This is just self-deception. Recent polls show that only 45% of Americans would vote for a Socialist to become our next president. I expect that number to drop even more once the debates begin and President Trump just slings ol’ Bernie around like a rag doll (metaphorically speaking).
According to a Gallup survey released yesterday, “[m]ore than 90% of Americans say they would be happy to vote for a presidential candidate their party nominated who would be black, Catholic, Hispanic, Jewish or a woman; 80% would accept evangelical Christians, homosexual men, and lesbians; 60-70% are willing to embrace a presidential candidate who is under 40, over 70, a Muslim or an atheist; but only 45% say they would vote for a socialist for president,” the Jewish Press summarized.
“Gallup’s bottom line conclusion is: The self-declared socialist Sanders could count on 76% of Democratic voters, 45% of Independents and … only 17% of Republicans,” the Press noted.
As Gallup noted at the top of its report, socialists are the “one group tested” who “receive majority opposition.” After all, “[l]ess than half of Americans, 45%, say they would vote for a socialist for president, while 53% say they would not.”
