Democrats are known for keeping secrets.
Many of their strategies are so extreme that they can’t even talk about them publicly.
But Hillary Clinton just opened her mouth, revealing a major secret that will ruin everything for Democrats in 2020.
Many are speculating that 2020 will be the year for Democrats to beat back President Donald Trump.
But the same people predicting that are the same people who predicted that Trump wouldn’t win in the first place.
While 2020 is sure to be a contentious election, Republicans currently have the big advantage of having someone to rally behind.
The Democrats are largely divided between two wings, the more establishment Democrats, and the more “progressive” Democrats.
But as former Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton reveals, many in the Democrat Party hold wildly radical views.
In a recent interview, she contends that she likely lost the election because she is a capitalist.
Being asked to elaborate, Hillary made it clear that in her mind, 41 percent of Democrats are socialists, at least in Iowa, which is the first caucus state of the year.
This charge is extremely damaging to Democrats.
While many are trying to normalize socialism, most of the country has a very strongly held view opposed to it.
They have seen just how dangerous it can be, and while much of the youth, who haven’t seen socialism in action, may support it, the population as a whole doesn’t.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton said at an event on Wednesday that she thinks being a capitalist probably hurt her among the Democratic base.
At the Shared Value Leadership Summit, Clinton was asked if being a capitalist hurt her chances at winning the election, noting that she was specifically asked during a debate if she is a capitalist. She argued that she was “probably” hurt by being a capitalist because so many Democratic primary voters identify as socialists.
“Probably,” Clinton said with a smirk. “You know, it’s hard to know but if you’re in the Iowa caucuses and 41 percent of Democrats are socialist — or self-described socialists — and I’m asked ‘are you a capitalist?’ and I say, ‘yes but with appropriate regulation and appropriate accountability,’ that probably gets lost in the ‘Oh my gosh she’s a capitalist!”
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that socialism is well regarded in the Democrat Party.
If it weren’t for the Democratic National Committee rigging the election for Hillary, Bernie Sanders likely would have won the Democratic nomination.
Bernie openly identifies as a “Democratic Socialist,” which he contends is different from actual socialism somehow.
But his message resonated with millions of Democrats across the country.
And while much of the population believes that he would have won the 2016 election against Donald Trump, there is no way to be sure.
With the socialist label connected to his name, there’s no telling how he would do.
Do you think Bernie Sanders would have beaten Donald Trump in the 2016 election?
