Dan Proft: “Yes” to the Goodies. “No” to the Gulags.

Big government Democrat politicians are happy to be puppets of corporate interests so long as the strings don’t show. They need rhetorical deniability for the campaign trail.

Similarly, Democrat primary voters generally embrace socialism by any other name so long as you don’t lay bare the repressive implications. They too need rhetorical deniability so they may continue to tell themselves they are the true heirs of American values or “the thing,” as Joe Biden affectionately terms it.

Bernie Sanders flamed out on Super Tuesday because he couldn’t keep the revolutionary in him under wraps on 60 Minutes two weeks earlier.

Rather than sticking to his fairy tale of socialism as harmonious, Nordic-style communal living, Sanders let his true self show in the form of cringe-worthy praise for Fidel Castro’s literacy program in communist Cuba.

Democrat primary voters came to Bernie Sanders for the “free” goodies but they couldn’t stay for the gulags.

Dan Proft: Democrats Can’t Live With or Without Bernie

Perhaps the most pronounced problem Democrats have in 2020 is, to paraphrase U2, they can neither live with or without Bernie Sanders.

They can’t nominate him and win—but they need his supporters—and Bernie backers have a healthy sense distrust of the Democrat establishment that rigged the 2016 primary against their guy.

A recent Emerson College survey finds a remarkable spread between Bernie supporters and those of the other Democrat POTUS frontrunners as to the question of, “Will you support whoever the Democrat nominee turns out to be?”

90 percent of Warren voters and 87 percent of Biden voters say, “Yes.”

By contrast, only 54 percent of Bernie voters answer in the affirmative.

That is a significant disparity.

The Democrat Party establishment wants to secure the Bernie bros support but discard Bernie. But: Without the support of the base, they cannot win.

They have a problem.

Medved: An Opportunity for the GOP


A new Gallup Poll shows the Democrats’ diversity—not only in racial terms but in ideological outlook. The GOP remains overwhelmingly conservative—with 73 percent describing themselves that way and only 4 percent identifying as liberals.

Meanwhile, a full 14 percent of Democrats called themselves “conservatives” and another 36 percent said they’re “moderates.” While Democratic leaders drift to the left of their base, the GOP should target conservatives and moderates in Democratic ranks.

If you get a new voter to show up to vote Republican, that’s good—but it gives you just one extra ballot. If you convert a Democrat to your cause, you not only a bag new a vote for your side, but simultaneously take a ballot from the other side.

That’s the right formula for decisive Republican victory.
