Meanwhile – when they aren’t declaring American tradition, history, and culture inherently racist – the Democrats are promoting open borders, free health care for people who enter our country illegally, the end of private insurance and choice in health care, and the death of our economy through fanatical environmental regulations.

I suspect all these ideas get 15 to 20 percent approval when you take them nationwide. But in their mania (which is bolstered by much of the mainstream media and liberal echo chambers) the Democrats are dragging themselves further and further to the left.

As I’ve mentioned before, I believe we are heading toward another Nixon-McGovern-style landslide.

When Richard Nixon won the presidency in 1968, many on the left were convinced the Democrats needed to go as radically left-wing as they thought Nixon was right-wing. They nominated Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota, who was exactly the kind of radical they believed they needed.
