Crazy Bernie and Elizabeth Warren, aka Pocahontas, won’t like what a recent Rasmussen poll showed about socialism. Newt Gingrich wrote about the poll in this article.

In his opinion piece, Gingrich cited the poll as saying “As the Rasmussen poll reported on Wednesday, 41 percent of Americans may have a favorable view of socialism…” That doesn’t sound like bad news for Crazy Bernie or Elizabeth Warren but that’s because I didn’t include the rest of the sentence. The full sentence said “As the Rasmussen poll reported on Wednesday, 41 percent of Americans may have a favorable view of socialism – but “most who like the term socialism do not think of it as an economic ideology.” It gets worse from there:

Voters still think free markets are better than socialism, by 55 percent to 12 percent, according to Rasmussen. They also say free markets are better for raising people into the middle class, creating good jobs and shrinking poverty. Finally, a clear majority of Americans of every political persuasion are optimistic about the future of our country, according to the survey.

That last sentence is a killer for Democrats. I’ve listened to the Democrats’ economic message, if they have one. Most of them are trying to convince people that the booming Trump economy isn’t booming. That’s if the Democrat presidential candidate even has an economic message.

That’s how a party walks into a harsh, stinging defeat. To say that these candidates are tone-deaf is understatement. They think that Sleepy Joe Biden is a moderate. Good luck with that one.

Every Democrat running for president wants to eliminate the corporate tax cuts that have played a huge part in reviving the lackluster Obama-Biden ‘recovery’. Blue collar workers are experiencing the fastest wage growth of any cohort while Democrats insist that President Trump didn’t deliver on his promises to these workers. Good luck with that. This is the post-kickoff reaction of Trump supporters:

Forgive me on this but I’m betting it’s difficult to convince that many smiling people that they’re living in Soup Line America. The point is that it’s difficult to convince a person who’s having a fun time that their life is a struggle. To put it differently, Democrats are trying to tell people that their lives really aren’t better than they were 4 years ago. The great news is that the American people get it:
