SHOCK POLL: Majority of Americans Now Have Unfavorable View of Democratic Party

Kristin TateRebel Buzz Contributor

This is what happens when you rig your own primary election, rather than let the voters decide on their own. 

Favorable views of the Democratic Party are at their lowest mark in over 25 years. 

From a new CNN poll

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.

The results come as voters across the country head to the polls for local and mayoral races, as well as several key governors races. 

Bombshell allegations from former DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile that the Democratic primary was rigged in Hillary Clinton's favor is likely hurting Democrats' mainstream appeal. The vast majority of young Democratic voters supported Bernie Sanders and now no longer trust the Party's establishment. Tom Perez, the current Chair of the DNC, can't afford to lose young voters who have been critical in electing Democrats into office at every level. 

Perhaps these statistics will serve as a wakeup call to the leaders of the Democratic Party, who continue to be in denial about why they lost the 2016 election. 

Calling Republicans racists and leading the #Resist movement aren't enough to mobilize millions of voters to turn out for Democratic candidates. The left must come up with uplifting, unifying policy stances if they ever hope to inspire their large pool of potential voters. 

But the left's actions and rhetoric over past year suggest that they remain as clueless as they did the day Donald Trump was elected.

I’ll tell you what, I would be happy to welcome Theryn Meyer into the political arena in Canada if she ever decided to enter. She has far more sense than many Canadians, and understands how dumb and potentially harmful C16 will be to trans people, being one herself as well as to all Canadians.

Frank should really watch this.

How many more elections will the democrats be allowed to steal?

’In the latest report from the Public Interest Legal Foundation, upon reviewing voter history files from 133 jurisdictions in the Virginia commonwealth, J. Christian Adams found:

Virginia election officials quietly removed 5,556 voters for non-citizenship between 2011 and May 2017;
1,852 of those removed as noncitizens cast ballots;
A total of 7,474 illegal ballots were cast from the pool of removed noncitizens;
Some records of illegal voting date back to the 1980s before their respective removals;
Virginia election officials routinely fail to alert law enforcement about these illegal votes or registrations.
Driven by the Census, noncitizens and illegal aliens are counted when apportioning congressional districts and when allocating state electors under the Electoral College. This means noncitizens play a role in determining how many congressional representatives a state has and exert an indirect influence on presidential elections.

According to FAIR, after a review of three studies and estimates, “approximately 1.6 million non-citizens vote every year. According to the high and low estimates, that number could be as high as 2.9 million (at 13 percent of 22 million), or as low as 528,000 (2.4 percent of 22 million). Both are unacceptably high numbers.” ’

Andrew those 2 seats do not mean anything is swinging.
Frank Trump is not a party man. When will you understand that? "

It was actually something like sixteen, wasn’t it? Apparently the biggest pro-Democrat swing in VA in ore than a century. There were only a few contests yesterday but if that continues, Trump is well on his way to breaking Obama’s “seat loss” record.

“The pendulum is swinging”?.. Don’t you wish?… How about we just give it, say, at least a year to judge?… After all, Obama was given EIGHT years to perform his “magic”…

I didn’t demean a trans person. The Rebel does that at every turn, so it’s a hilarious slap in the face to people like you that voters preferred someone you find sick and disgusting over voting for a conservative.

I look forward to Canada’s first trans PM.

Rebelation Rebelation,

You are missing the point completely, which is no surprise coming from you.

We are in a thread with Kristin Tate claiming that Americans practically hate the Democrats – meanwhile Democrats kicked ass tonight with Chris Christie’s political career coming to an end among other Republicans, when supposedly Democrat support is incredibly low.

Obviously not.

Trump and his administration have been absolutely horrible and a change is coming in 2018 and 2020. There won’t be Hillary this time with her baggage to stop Democrats from taking over again.

Andrew why no comment on Frank demeaning a trans candidate?
Frank Trump has nothing to worry about.

It’s fun, isn’t it? The talking point was that always that Obama lost the Democrats some horrifying number of seats in various state legislatures, wasn’t it?

So, now that the pendulum is swinging the other way, as it did in VA and NJ today, I wonder if the blame will be similarly aimed?
commented 2017-11-07 23:01:28 -0500
Frank. So you think little of Trans ppl I take it? I mean, that’s why you’re making a big deal about it – right? Because after all, if you can’t beat a sicko, you’re in trouble, isn’t that what you’re saying? Do your Lefty pals know you feel this way?

So after CNN is exposed repeatedly to be super one-sided and fake news, you continue to buy into Trapper’s crapper?

Well, as I’ve always said, Lefty’s are “incapable of learning”. Thanks for the demonstration!!

If we keep reading … we find out something interesting.

“But the Republican Party isn’t doing any better, with just 30% of Americans holding a favorable view. That’s essentially the same as September, when the rating hit its lowest point in polling back to 1992, but down from 42% in March. A broad 6 in 10, 61%, have an unfavorable opinion.”

So, as bad as the Dems are, the GOP’s doing even worse.

Hmm, didn’t the Rebel complain about CNN selectively editing things to present a misleading conclusion? Hmm, that’s actually still on the front page.

I do find it interesting that Republicans are really worried about losing in 2018.

STEPHEN EISENBERG commented: “They tell you how great Clinton is, and how horrible Trump is. Ask then for an example of Trump being bad, evil, sex fiend and they come up blank. Tell them facts about Obama and the Clintons and then suddenly they don’t want to talk politics and they know nothing and don’t want to know anything. I need smarter friends down south.”

Interesting comment. We saw this played out in Canada between the Lieberals and Harper leading up to the 2015 election. Clueless Canadians put the current Crime Minister in charge.

But if NBC, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NPR, and of course CNN aren’t reporting the Democrat’s scandals, and just keep on about Trump and the non-existent connection to Russia, people will vote the Dems in. So sad.

When I speak with Americans they know nothing about the uranium deal, the 145 million the Clinton slush fund (foundation) received, the funds from Saudi Arabia, the $1 billion dollars that went missing under Hillary’s administration as Secretary of State, and so on. Fast and Furious is the name of a movie, not a government scandal.

They tell you how great Clinton is, and how horrible Trump is. Ask then for an example of Trump being bad, evil, sex fiend and they come up blank. Tell them facts about Obama and the Clintons and then suddenly they don’t want to talk politics and they know nothing and don’t want to know anything. I need smarter friends down south.

… Nothing could be less trustworthy than a CNN poll. They have proven to be perfectly comfortable with lies and manufacturing “news”.
… Later in the CNN column the “poll” reveals that Republicans are even less popular. CNN is garbage, and everything from CNN is garbage.

Who woulda thunk. That the corruption, lies, and lack of any coherent policies other than a quest for power has caught up to the Dems! The Clinton News Network (CNN) must be devastated!
