Democrats’ biggest problem is Joe Biden. That’s a fact.
The almost 80-year-old bumbling idiot hurt his party worse than any single person. But it’s not his fault he was selected in The Big Cheat. The Democratic Party had no other choice.
You’ve heard loud right-wing talkers ‘skinning’ the Democrats as a bunch of commies and socialists.
What if I told you that more than a third of Democrats, 37 percent, identify as moderates? Here’s another eye-popper — 12 percent of Democrats say they are conservatives.
Yes, that means that despite all the talk about Democrats as a radical political party, only 50 percent of Democrats even go far enough to the left to call themselves liberals.
These poll numbers from Gallup reveal a fascinating fight inside the party over what it means to be a Democrat in 2022.
While I get Williams’ point, Democrats epitomize commies and socialists.
How could you possibly support the policies of any Democrat without seeing the commie or socialist aspect?
But I don’t expect Williams to get it. Look at the next part of his article, as he tries to legitimize the January 6 nonsense:
This week’s televised hearings of the House Select Committee on January 6 could define Democrats as guardians of 250 years of constitutional order. They would stand in stark contrast to the insurrectionists who violently attacked Congress to keep a cult leader and autocrat in the White House.
I love when Democrats tell you who they are. In this case, Williams all but admits that Democrats are a cult, as he accuses 75 million Americans of being beguiled by Trump, ergo part of his cult.
The same people who proved with each primary that we don’t necessarily agree with Trump’s political picks. But we are part of the cult?
How do they miss it?
A continued look at Williams drivel explains how warped Democrats are, and why they are in such disarray.
The so-called ‘progressives’ have sharply increased their numbers since 2000 when they were about 30 percent of the party, according to Gallup. The share of Democrats identifying as liberal, which had been steadily rising, only hit 50 percent after Donald Trump won the presidency.
Democrats have won the popular vote in seven of the last eight presidential elections. They are the dominant party in the nation’s most economically productive cities and their senators collectively represent millions more voters than their Republican counterparts.
History will also note Republican success in diluting Democrats’ power in Congress due to the GOP’s dominance among conservative white voters. This has helped Republicans win elections in smaller states with more rural and small-town populations.
The result is divided, polarized, often paralyzed federal government. And that has led to a tremendous rise in the influence of swing voters. The percentage of voters who say they are independent of both parties, 42 percent, is now bigger than the percentage of voters who tell Gallup they are Democrats (28 percent) or Republicans (28 percent).
The power of swing voters is evident in that seven of the last eight midterm and presidential elections have seen a switch in party control in the House, Senate or White House.
Hmmm. Seems we’re missing something…
What Williams fails to mention is the rampant cheating by Democrats. Imagine what his analysis of Democrats would be if forced to admit that Democrats cheated in massive numbers?
Yes, Williams believes that Biden’s “win” in 2020 suggests that “swing voters put a premium on getting back to normal rather than endorsing Trump for a second, divisive term.”
Again, if you believe the lie, then Williams might have a point.
Despite all evidence proving The Big Cheat, Williams makes his flawed analysis. And then the truth hits him between the eyes:
Biden’s current low approval numbers are evidence that his party remains split, however.
Some want him to take a stronger stand against Republican extremists who fomented the insurrection at the Capitol, who campaign on lies about a “stolen” 2020 election, and who threaten abortion rights.
NBC News, reporting the findings of its own polling last month, noted that “among Democratic primary voters, 63 percent say they prefer a candidate who proposes larger-scale policies even if they cost more and might be harder to pass, versus 33 percent who prefer a candidate who proposes smaller-scale policies that cost less and might be easier to pass.”
The ideological fight among Democrats allows Republicans to claim Biden is unpopular.
In truth, Biden’s numbers are down because of shifting moods among Democrats and independent voters.
Republicans have never been Biden supporters. An Economist/YouGov poll last week, broadly consistent with other surveys, found 76 percent of GOP voters believing Biden’s election to have been illegitimate.
Meanwhile, Trump continues to define the GOP.
In case you missed it, Williams declared that the MAGA King provided a gathering point for true Republicans.
Trump redefined the party, and in doing so, returned millions of Republicans to the table. How else could he have gotten 75 million votes? We know the Dominion machines weren’t rigged to help Trump.
Williams goes on to say that Trump is viewed favorably by the overwhelming majority of Republican voters. And shockingly, Williams admitted that Trump is the clear favorite to win the party’s 2024 presidential nomination if he chooses to run.
If Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), a vice-chair of the January 6 committee, is defeated in her Wyoming primary in August, the final flickering embers of Trump resistance in the GOP will be extinguished.
There are no more moderate or liberal Republicans. For that matter, there really aren’t traditional Republicans either.
There are only Trump Republicans now — or what Biden last month labeled “this MAGA crowd…the most extreme political organization that’s existed…in recent American history.”
