Frank Luntz: 2020 Democrats Are "Mirror Image" Of Republicans From 2016

|

Frank Luntz said it was a good strategy for former Vice President Joe Biden to skip the California Democratic Convention this weekend where all the top-tier presidential candidate spoke. Luntz said Biden doesn't want to be side-by-side with them or to be compared to them unless it really matters, like a debate.

"What I want to remind viewers, this is a great exercise for them, because what they don't realize is how much the Democrats have changed, how much the policies have moved to the left and on every single issue the activists can't wait to boo the moderates in the party," Luntz said to FNC host Laura Ingraham. "This is just like the Republicans from 2016. It's just a mirror image on the left."





Luntz reacted to former Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) getting booed for chiding socialism and Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) for criticizing Medicare For All and also Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi receiving audience feedback for her message on not impeaching President Trump.

LUNTZ: The problem now for Democrats is that the core, their base vote, is so far on the left with these policies. What I want to remind viewers, this is a great exercise for them, because what they don't realize is how much the Democrats have changed, how much the policies have moved to the left and on every single issue the activists can't wait to boo the moderates in the party. This is just like the Republicans from 2016. It's just a mirror image on the left...

This is now the center of the Democratic party, it has moved to the left of Nancy Pelosi, and it's going to be a challenge for them to move back after the election. But this makes perfect sense. This is the primary voter. This is the caucus voter. So I'm not surprised that they are that emotional and that passionate.
