Dan Proft: When Democrats Lose the New York Times…

New York Times columnist David Brooks wants Democrats to drop their impeachment gambit.

His colleague Bret Stephens wants Democratic presidential candidates to pare down their essentially socialist proposals that would Venezuela-ize the American economy.

And the brothers Emanuel—my former mayor, Rahm and Ari—don’t think it’s a good idea to tell 150 million Americans that even if they like their private health insurance they don’t get to keep it.

And what’s the response?

Elizabeth Warren continues to push her complete set of Marxist fantasies.

Joe Biden calls for fossil fuel company executives—yes—to be imprisoned.

And Pete Buttigieg wants to decriminalize all illegal drugs in the face of the opioid crisis.

As we enter the election year, Democrats are divided into two camps.

One wants to defeat Trump at the ballot box.

The other just wants to exact vengeance on Trump voters.

All the candidates to this point are in the “vengeance” camp.

Michael Medved: Polls Can’t Predict Trump’s Democratic Opponent

Our fascination with polls sometimes produces premature conclusions about next year’s presidential race, including the assumptions that Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden will fight it out for the Democratic nomination. Past polling a year before elections has demonstrated scant predictive value: for 2004, Wesley Clark and Howard Dean were the clear Democratic front-runners, but neither survived the early primaries; John Kerry, who grabbed the nomination, ran fifth at this point.

Four years later, for 2008, Rudy Giuliani was way ahead among Republicans—topping the ultimate nominee, John McCain, more than 2 to 1. And in 2016, Donald Trump was a full six points behind then front-runner Ben Carson—who’s now in Trump’s cabinet. Primary contests are unpredictable, particularly with complicated races and multiple candidates. There’s still time for new entrants like Mike Bloomberg, or some other surprise latecomer, to shake up the faltering Democratic field.
