New Poll Indicates Key Midterm Voters Don’t Know Who Leads The Democratic Party

If the Democrats are still hoping for a blue wave this fall, they had better get to work. According to a recent poll, most midterm voters don’t even know who leads their party.

The Daily Caller reports:


Just five months out from November’s midterm elections, voters in competitive battleground districts don’t have a clear idea of who leads the Democratic Party, a new poll reveals.

When voters in those key districts were asked who the party’s leader is, the most popular answer was, “There isn’t one,” according to a CBS/YouGov poll released on Sunday.

Forty-five percent of midterm voters say Democrats are leaderless, the poll found.

Voters who said the Democratic Party does have a leader, couldn’t agree on who that leader is.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer received with 16 percent of the vote; House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi received 15 percent; and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist independent who ran for president as a Democrat in 2016, received 13 percent.

That last part is funny, considering Bernie Sanders isn’t even a member of the Democratic party. Isn’t this a massive failure on Pelosi and Schumer’s part? How do people not know they lead the party?
