    Democrats are More Extreme than Republicans

    The Left often accuses Republicans of extremism, but available evidence suggests that, on the whole, it is Democrats who are becoming more and more extreme, causing a widening gap in political ideology between Left and Right.

    Think about any recent illegal demonstrations, unlawful or uncivil protests, and it was likely a group of activists from the Left.

    On the issue of legal immigration, Democrats don't have any proposal to solve problems. They just want to maintain the unsecured nature of our southern border, abolish ICE and close detention facilities, without offering any plan to resolve illegal immigration problems. https://www.yahoo.com/news/abolish-i...-election.html This is very different than Democrats of the past.

    The Democrats recently had a Socialist presidential candidate who very nearly won that party's nomination. And they are in the process of sending another Socialist to the US Congress: https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/26/polit...ary/index.html

    A Pew Research study found that Democrats were much more likely to say that finding out a friend voted for Trump would strain the relationship than if the positions were reversed and the friend voted for Hillary Clinton. http://www.people-press.org/2017/07/...y-among-women/

    And finally, a Pew Research study has found that the growing divide between liberals and conservatives is due, in large part, to liberals moving further and further left on key issues: http://assets.pewresearch.org/wp-con...pe-release.pdf
