Dick Durbin of Illinois is concerned that if the Democrats go too far to the left, Trump will easily win re-election. He is right to be concerned. People like Bernie and Elizabeth Warren are already pushing the party to the far left with no signs of stopping.
From the Washington Free Beacon:
Durbin: If Democrats ‘Overdo It’ by Being too Liberal, We Can Lose to Trump
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) said in a radio interview on Sunday that Democrats can lose to President Donald Trump in 2020 if they “overdo it” by becoming too liberal.
Durbin was asked on a local Chicago radio program about comments from Rep. Cheri Bustos (D., Ill.), who warned fellow Democrats that Trump would be reelected if the party becomes too liberal.
CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski was first to report on Durbin’s comments.
“We need to be balanced,” Durbin said on “Connected to Chicago” on WLS-AM. “She’s right about that. And as downstater like her, I understand she represents a challenging district. We don’t give up on our values, but we better be sensitive too that there are people with more moderate views, and people who may disagree with some parts of the Democratic platform as they as they are presented. We’ve got to be open to that possibility.”

Many Americans already think the Democrats are too far left. Durbin has his work cut out for him.
