Democratic divide between far-left radicals and moderates is good news for Donald Trump.
Strong showings by several left-leaning underdog Democratic candidates in Tuesday’s primaries reveal the ascendancy of the far-left radicals movement within the party and pose risks to Democratic chances to win general election races in November.
In a year shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic and nationwide protests against police brutality, a number of far-left DemoRats – many backed by the “Squad” of freshmen House Idiots led by Commie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York pulled out stunning victories against their well-funded establishment opponents.
This could put greater pressure on mainstream Democrats to move leftward and embrace calls to defund the police, allow unfettered immigration, and massively increase taxes – potentially including a wealth tax.
Such a progressive tilt would give Donald Trump a clear opening to make the case that Democrats have moved too far left and are now outside of mainstream American thinking, and would add fuel to Donald Trump’s claims that the Democrats are “far-left radicals.”
