Morning Consult Poll: Only One Third of Democrat Party Voters Say the Democrat Party Is "Headed in the Right Direction"

Don't worry, when the choice is supporting Sanders or being carted off to reeducation labor centers, they'll support the candidate with appropriate zeal.

There are more alarming findings for establishment leaders in the Democratic Party: Morning Consult numbers also reveal that only one-third of Democratic voters say their party is "headed in the right direction."

Also, Democrat voter enthusiasm may be depressed due to the fact they think Bernie will lose:

"A 46% plurality in the latest poll said they believe Trump will defeat the Democratic nominee later this year, roughly matching responses collected after Iowa and New Hampshire," Mr. Yokley says.

On the other hand, the Democrat Party has never been more united.

A Bernie Sanders banker who works at Goldman Sachs leaked audio of a Bloomberg speech to Goldman in 2016.

It will not endear him to the left.

Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said at a private event in 2016 that his presidential campaign platform would have been to "defend the banks" and also labeled the progressive movement and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, now a rival for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, as "scary."

When asked his views on the rise of the far right in Europe, Bloomberg warned about the rise of progressive politicians in the US, citing Warren.

"The left is arising. The progressive movement is just as scary," he says. "Elizabeth Warren on one side. And whoever you want to pick on the Republicans on the right side?"

He also mused about... the coming Reign of Terror.


"Look at the income inequality," he said. "Anytime we've had this before, society blows up and they do set up the guillotines and the guillotines don't have to be chop your head off. They could be confiscatory taxes, they could be seizing the endowments of uh, educational institutions and um, philanthropic organizations, all of which those proposals are out there. You know, you're going to have to do something about this income inequality and a lot of it comes from zero interest rates."

Bloomberg also endeared himself to the Democrat base by standing up for bankers -- whom the left calls "banksters," for some reason that I never understood -- and said of bankers, "these are my peeps."

"But seriously," he went on, "somebody's gotta stand up and do what we need. A healthy banking system that's going to take risks because that's what creates the jobs for everybody. And nobody's willing to say that. The trouble is, these campaigns in this day and age, really are about slogans and not about issues anymore. And in this election you're going to see people are voting and they either love or hate, mostly hate both, but who you hate the least. That's what they're going to vote for. And they're not going to vote on issues."

Bloomberg added of the banking crowd, "these are my peeps."

Even as a Republican, I can only say, sarcastically: Thank God someone is finally looking out for the interests of hundred billion dollar banks, who barely have any kind of say in Washington DC!

Joe Biden's campaign both Pounced Upon and Seized On Bloomberg's remarks.

"Now we know that behind closed doors, Bloomberg described his last-minute endorsement of President Obama in 2012 as 'very backhanded' and said that he thought 'Romney would be a better person at doing' the 'things that I think are important.' Bloomberg may have changed his voter registration but he's still a Republican at heart," Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesperson, said in a statement.

This should be about the time the media begins talking up "chaos" on the left and the "civil war" in the Democrat Party.

But they won't, because the Leftwing Propagandist Media Handbook declares that chaos and civil war are only permitted in the Republican Party.
