The issues that the Democrats keep talking about in debates do not jive with most of the country.
The amazing thing here is that this news came from MSNBC.
One of their reporters compared support for Democrat issues in the party, versus the general population and it wasn’t even close.
Brutal: MSNBC Analyst Exposes The 2020 Democratic Agenda As A Total Dumpster Fire
MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki threw more gasoline on the bonfire that is the 2020 Democratic agenda, noting that on every issue Democrats like, the rest of the country opposes…by wide margins in some cases. That Democratic bubble only got denser with Trump:
In the meantime, hosts from both networks weren’t so high on the performance on Warren or Sanders, with Van Jones suggesting that the real winner of the night was Joe Biden since he wasn’t attacked.
Watch the video:
Yikes! MSNBC polling guy dumps cold ice all over #DemDebate tonight.

Even former Obama adviser David Axelrod pointed this out.
From Real Clear Politics:
DAVID AXELROD: You said something interesting when was, it isn’t good enough to argue that the country doesn’t want this. It does seem as if you’re running for president that you ought to take into consideration what the country wants. And the fact is large numbers of people oppose the Medicare for All proposal if it replaces private insurance.
We’ve seen it in poll after poll, a large number of people in this country do not believe the border should be decriminalized. A large number of people in did country don’t believe that undocumented immigrants should qualify for public [aid]…
I appreciate your feelings about these issues and I’m very passionate about health care myself. I was in the White House when we fought just to get the Affordable Care Act, couldn’t get a public option. So Bernie Sanders was there. He knows that. He knows that what he’s talking about is not going to happen any time soon.
It seems like everyone can see this except the Democrats.
