The Democrats seem to be sending quite a few mixed signals to their constituents in the run-up to the 2020 election.
On one hand, the DNC seems hellbent on nominating former Vice President Joe Biden to take on Donald Trump in the general election. The reason behind this choice is simple: Biden resides in the metaphorical, political center, which allows him the opportunity to go after moderate voters who may be on the fence regarding some of the President’s more outlandish actions.
On the other hand, however, voters within the Democratic Party seem enamored with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, whose election would result in a massive overhaul of our national identity.
Bernie is a radical, no doubt, and one needs only to take a cursory look at his stance on the Second Amendment to realize this.
He said he will “make certain that we end the sale and distribution of ‘assault weapons’ in this country.’” And as the audience applauded he added, “And we go further, we go further, but the bottom line is that I will not be intimidated by the NRA.”
This is precisely the sort of statement that will send undecided centrist voters sprinting back in the direction of Donald Trump come November, and the DNC knows it.
