CFP: Yesterday, we discussed the Harvard-Harris poll that showed the left has big problems when it comes to its stance on legal (let alone illegal) immigration. I argued that Democrats have made their party synonymous with illegal immigration and they have no way to walk that back. Their base is now 100% on board with what the DNC brass claims to support, and any time Dems try to escape their promises, the rage is obvious.
It’s clear that years of verbal pandering have painted Democrats into a corner.
If they moderate their stance on immigration to please moderates, they lose the base. If they cater to the base, they lose the moderates.
How do we know they’ll lose the base? Take a look at what happened last night outside Chuck Schumer’s apartment….
Yep. That’s an outraged mob of pro-DACA protesters chanting “If Chuck won’t let us Dream, we won’t let him sleep!”
There’s no word on whether they managed to keep him awake but, according to Fox News, the protest began at the Grand Army Plaza, then marched south to Schumer’s home.
No wonder Schumer’s offer to fully fund the wall was yanked off the table so quickly. read more/watch
