The media was quick to jump on the racist argument against most recent tweets by President Donald Trump. In his Sunday tweets, President Trump suggested that some congressional representatives could go back to countries that they were from and fix their issues before coming to America to suggest how we fix ours.
CNN immediately jumped on President Trump suggesting that his tweets were racist and directed at the four outspoken Democratic freshmen AOC, Tlaib, Omar and Pressley. Trump did not mention race in his tweets nor did he mention any of these specific representatives by name, so this is all assumptions by the media and Democrats.
The interesting this is these arguments come along after a new Axios poll suggests that these 4 Democrat representatives are defining the Democratic Party to those much desired independent swing voters. The poll shows a lot of interesting information that Democrats should be concerned about going into the main election season as these 4 representatives continue to speak out.
The poll shows that these freshmen Democrats do not have a favorable view among those voters. AOC was only viewed favorably by 22% of these voters. Omar fared much worse at only a 9% favorable view. At the end of the day, these voters see through the ridiculous statements the “squad” makes. It doesn’t just end there.
Not only do these voters dislike the representatives, they dislike the ideas that the representatives present. Of those surveyed, the proposed socialist ideas that they represent were viewed as unfavorable by 69% of the voters. Capitalism was preferred and viewed favorably by 56% of those surveyed.
Even though these issues alienate the voters that they need in an effort to win the presidency, Democrats do not seem to have an issue in alienating them. As the survey states, the Democrats feel they continue to perform well with these representatives as their leaders and will continue to double down on efforts to place them front and center. It’s a strategy that will continue to push the left into the most radical positions on the left and thankfully help President Trump win 4 more years.
