Perhaps is not as much their policies but the messages that some provide. that is as harmful as what the Trump followers try to portray.

I know very little about the Green New Deal but that is a lot in  it that I don't feel comfortable with it.
I do believe in Climate change, but don't care about Medicare for All, I do want to see all Americans have health care. I do want to see sensible gun laws. but I have a problem with the slogans. like Collage for all free or charge. and the fact they they attack the ones that don't think like them.

There is a big difference between progressive ideas and socialism and now I believe that the liens  are being confused by many.

Spot on William , even our Far Right Posters on AARP have no room for anything left of Far Right. If you're a Moderate Democrat or Republican , you are automatically called a "Socialist".

No room for middle ground or compromise because the Far Right play the Extreme Game of Lies !!

There was a poll released this morning asking the following question.

Will Democrats loos the upcoming elections by going too far to the left

It was asked by CNN and the answer was 67% that  answered that poll consider that going to far to the left will harm the chances of winning the 2020 elections.

In this message board apparently there is a leaning to a socialist mood that will most definitively harm the Democratic party.

They need to remember that they alone do not represent the whole Party and in order to win the 2020 elections they are only a minority in this country. and if they are seen by this nation as a majority that will impose leftists and extreme policies they will not vote for any Democrat.

So, the ball is in your court. either you understand that this country is not ready for Socialism, or you will have Trump for 4 more years whether you like it or not. and then I will have to see you all posting in this message board. OH MY!

Shows the true value of polls especially with robo calls and scam calls, who actually answers these polls?


Instead of arguing of who votes and who doesnt' I really would like to know what are the issues that you consider the most important ones to obtain in the 2020 elections.

An Early Look at the 2020 Electorate - Pew Research


The 2020 U.S. presidential election is rapidly coming into view – and so is the electorate that will determine its outcome.


While demographic changes unfold slowly, it’s already clear that the 2020 electorate will be unique in several ways.


Nonwhites will account for a third of eligible voters – their largest share ever – driven by long-term increases among certain groups, especially Hispanics.


At the same time, one-in-ten eligible voters will be members of Generation Z, the Americans who will be between the ages 18 and 23 next year. That will occur as Millennials and all other older generations account for a smaller share of eligible voters than they did in 2016.


In the 2016 election 69.6 million Millennials AND Generation X voted.


In 2016 67.9 million Baby Boomers AND prior generation voted.


In the 2020 election 28% are expected to be Boomers (1946-64).


27% will be Millennials (1981-96).

Just my opinion, but I believe the key for the D's is getting younger voters to turn out. Some of the issues frequently mentioned by younger voters in the town halls include climate change (probably first and foremost), followed by the high cost of college and student loan debt, sensible gun legislation and curbing gun violence, and employment opportunities. 

 

There was a 31% turnout in 2018 of younger voters, which was well above the norm. But that still leaves a large pool of untapped voters who need a compelling case from the D's that will motivate them to vote in 2020.

 

This article is from a while back, but it covers it fairly well.

It’s early, and haven’t even had debates for either party, so take the polls with a grain of salt. And please be careful and understand that it’s a branding item for trump and the right to call anyone to the left of them as a socialists. 

And just for the record, what good programs or policies are repubs trying to implement for the good of the citizens of the US?

Another Recent Poll...

 

June 5, 2019

A new poll shows both Democratic White House hopefuls Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders with substantial leads in matchups with President Trump in Michigan, one of the Rust Belt states key to his 2016 electoral college victory.

 

Biden, the former vice president, and Sanders, a senator from Vermont, led Trump by identical margins — 53 percent to 41 percent — among likely voters in the poll conducted for the Detroit News and the Detroit television station WDIV-TV.


Three other Democrats included in the poll were preferred over Trump by less substantial margins.
South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (6 points), U.S. Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (4 points) and Kamala Harris of California (3 points) polled ahead of the president.


Three years after he became the first Republican to win the state since 1988, fewer than 36% percent of Michigan voters say they would vote to re-elect Trump, compared with more than 51% who said they plan to vote for someone new.


Michigan's 16 electoral college votes went to Trump by 10,704 votes in 2016.

Never underestimate the power of the private voting booth.

 

The MSM has done such a good job demonizing President Trump and the leftwing activists that perpetrate violence on other citizens that disagree with them, many people keep their political views and opinions to themselves.  Especially the Seniors.

 

I know my wife and I both never participate in any kind of polling and especially exit polls at the precinct.  The secret ballot gives everyone the freedom to vote their conscience.  That's what happened in 2016, we wanted to change up the status quo career politician apple cart.  So did a lot of folks all over the country.

 

Food for thought...
