Poll reveals Democrats in key midterm districts unable to identify clear party leader

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

Though Democrats and their media allies are afraid to admit it, their party remains engaged in internal conflict between the more moderate, status quo establishment center-left Democrats and the radical far-left progressives.

This ongoing internecine battle has left apparently Democrats without any clear leader at the top of their party, as was just exposed in a recent CBS News/YouGov poll.

Devastating poll results

The recent poll asked respondents to choose from a list of liberal politicians who they see as the leader of the Democratic Party right now — but their responses should be quite discouraging for the left.

According to The Daily Caller, nearly half of those polled — 45 percent — replied that the Democrats have no clear leadership figure at this point, just five months out from an important midterm election cycle.

Of those who did name a leader for the party, their opinions were widely split for who that individual is. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer barely scraped by other Dems as the most popular answer, with just 16 percent support.

Schumer was followed by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi — whom 15 percent viewed as the party’s leader — while socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is technically an independent, racked up 13 percent of the poll’s respondents.

And a surprising 7 percent of respondents named failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as the leader of the party.

There were also 4 percent of respondents who chose an unspecified “someone else” as the party’s leader, such as former President Barack Obama or any of the legion of largely unknown or unlikable Democrats the party has thrust into the spotlight in their attempt to connect with more voters.

But wait — there’s more!

Perhaps in relation to the widespread view of the Democrats as a leaderless party, the recent poll also showed that the so-called “Blue Wave” — that some hypothesize will earn Dems majority control of both houses of Congress — is increasingly unlikely to occur ahead of November’s elections.

The results of the poll had Democratic control of the House of Representatives listed as a “toss-up” — and if they do gain control, it would likely be only a 2-3 seat advantage. And the poll didn’t even ask about Democrat chances to retake the Senate.

This is all devastating news for putative “leaders” like Pelosi and Schumer, as it shows their level of support is rather slim.

So long as the center-left moderates and far-left progressives continue to duke it out, with no clear leader stepping up to settle the dispute, things aren’t likely to get better for the Democrats any time soon.
