It’s lucky that Hillary Clinton didn’t get elected last year, because it appears that the Democrats don’t actually have any policies to offer. Or at least, that’s what the majority of Americans think of the DNC’s current platform.
ABC and The Washington Post conducted a new poll, and found that more than half of Americans don’t think the Democrat party any longer stand for a single policy matter, other than opposing President Donald Trump.
1,001 Americans were asked the question, “Do you think the Democratic Party currently stands for something, or just stands against Trump?”
52 percent of respondents believed the party “just stands against Trump,” while only 37 percent actually thought that the party “stands for something.”
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The poll was taken between July 10-13 and surveyed more Democrats than Republicans. 35 percent of respondents identified themselves as Democrats, 23 percent as Republicans, and 35 percent as Independent.
Some Democrats are starting to sound the alarm bells, warning their party that the anti-Trump messaging isn’t attracting voters.
Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, for example, has recently called on Democrats to adopt a strong economic message, while Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy argued that the Democrats spend too much time talking about Russia at the expense of other issues that matter to voters.
