The Democratic Party is heading for a cliff.
And no one inside the party seems to realize that they are on the verge of handing the next Presidential election to Donald Trump on a silver platter.
But now, one top Democrat is sounding the alarm after issuing this dire warning about 2020.
With the American economy going full-steam ahead and the public finally moving on from the malaise of the Obama years, Democrats were already going to have a difficult time defeating President Donald Trump in the next election.
But the party’s dramatic leftward tilt over the past two years has made things go from bad to worse.
And the problem that Democrats are now facing is that the party continues to move to the left on autopilot, with seemingly no way to stop it.
If the trend continues, the American people are going to end up walking into the voting booth in November 2020 and rejecting the party up and down the ballot.
At the moment, few Democrats are sounding the alarm bells as most are fearful of backlash from their left-wing base.
McClatchy reports, “Primaries traditionally encourage candidates to back policy proposals that appeal more to the party’s ideologically fervent base than moderates In most cases, whoever emerges as the eventual nominee inevitably pivots back toward the center for the general election.
But centrist Democrats say the last debate was, even for a primary, unusually fixated on subjects that either didn’t interest or outright repelled voters in the middle of the political spectrum.”
And one top Democrat is now issuing a dire warning about the upcoming election that Democrats would be fools to ignore.
“I hope that in the next debate there’s more of a discussion about education and public safety and issues of the economy and those other issues that a lot of moderates are looking for,” said former Democratic Alaska Senator Mark Begich.
Begich was one of nine Democrats to lose re-election in 2014 due to the leftward tilt of the Democratic Party under the Obama years.
And since leaving office, Begich has seen the Democrats completely jump off a cliff.
From supporting taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal immigrants, banning all forms of private insurance, decriminalizing illegal border crossings into the United States, and enacting reparations for slavery, the current Democratic field is more radical than at any point in America’s history.
And there’s no signs that the party is going to be slowing down any time soon.
At this point, it’s become a self-perpetuating cycle whereby one Democrat proposes a radical left-wing policy only to be outdone by another who proposes an even more radical policy.
And unless this trend can be stopped and reversed, Democrats may very well just throw the whole election to Trump before a single ballot has even been cast.
But even if the party gets its act together and tries to stop the self-destructive course it is currently traveling down, it may already be too late.
