The Left’s Takeover of the Democratic Party Is Completed

Is the polarization of America due to Republicans moving more to the right or Democrats moving left? The latter.

Public Opinion Strategies, a respected pollster which handles polling for the Wall Street Journal and NBC News, has examined data going back dozens of years and concluded:

“Over the last decade, Republicans barely budged on a host of issues while Democrat’s positions on abortion, climate change, immigration, and affirmative action have fundamentally shifted.”

For example, there has been a ten-point jump in the percentage of Democrats who declare themselves “very liberal.” They now make up nearly a third of all Democrats.

Or consider responses to the basic question of whether the government should do a lot more to meet the needs of people. In the 1990s, only 45% of Democrats thought so. Now that number is 82%. The percentage of Democrats who believe immediate action must be taken to combat climate change has gone from 50% in 2014 to 72% today.

On race relations issues the polarization is severe. To the question; “Do you agree or disagree with the following statement— America is a nation where people are not judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” 70% of Republicans agree with it, along with almost half of independents. But only 28% of Democrats do, down from 46% just a decade ago.
