NEW STUDY FINDS DEMOCRATS MOVING LEFT, DRIVING GROWING PARTISAN GAP - David Horowitz: The Democratic Party is Now a Communist Party


Think tank finds difference between parties greater than ever

new study from the Pew Research Center shows a growing partisan gap in opinions on major issues, driven in part by Democrats’ leftward drift.
Pew found Democrats have moved substantially left on a variety of issues while Republicans’ views remain relatively constant. That was true across social and economic issues; Pew claimed that the split between Republicans and Democrats is more pronounced than any divides by race, gender, or socioeconomic status.
“This poll and some other recent ones show that Democrats are pulling more strongly to the left and Republicans are not pulling quite as strongly to the right as a general matter,” said Karlyn Bowman, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute who specializes in American public opinion.
One such leftward shift came in Pew’s question about welfare. As to whether or not the government “should do more to help the needy, even if it means going deeper into debt,” 71 percent of Democrats respond affirmatively, up 17 points over the past six years.

Republicans' opinions have barely shifted, down slightly from 25 to 24 percent. Additionally, some 76 percent of Democrats say "poor people have hard lives because government benefits don't go far enough"—the highest proportion of Democrats since Pew started asking the question in 1994.

Hello! I am from Brazil and we are facing cultural Marxism and its consequences (corruption, counter - information, scrapping of education, destruction of culture). I would like you to know about the existence of the '' São Paulo Forum ''. Communist organization founded in 1990 by former President Lula, Fidel Castro, with the participation of Evo Morales, Rafael Corrêa. It helped to put dictator Hugo Chavez in power in Venezuela.
This is a very difficult and controversial subject, of great concern to the Américas (north, central of the south).
We fear the progress of this organization, which does not cease its activities and is the core of corruption on the continent. Thank you very much for your attention!
