Majority of Americans Believes #Democrats Are 'Outside The Mainstream' of Acceptable Politics

This was the finding in this week's new WSJ/NBC News poll.

At Free Beacon, "Poll: Majority Say Dem Candidates 'Out of Step' With Most Americans’ Thinking."

The catch here is that in July 2016, when Obama was still in office, a plurality of 48 percent thought the Democrats were outside the mainstream. That's the change. Now respondents see both parties outside the mainstream, but the GOP has ticked down a couple of points while the number for the Dems has increased 8 points. That's important, especially in this election year.

And see Joseph Curl, "More Americans than ever find Democrats out of the mainstream."
