According to the survey, 60 percent of Americans say they are unsure of when the next Democratic debate will be and an additional 19 percent wrongly believe it’s happening next week or next month.

Democratic Debate Loss Of Voices

Moreover, as the number of contestants declines, we continue to lose the voice of moderate-leaning candidates. Those remaining are running their campaigns on extreme progressive policies such as eliminating private insurance, Universal Basic Income and their versions of the Green New Deal. The polling reflects this knowledge, showing that only 4 percent of Americans believe there are NO candidates supporting socialist policies left in the race.

“The lack of knowledge about the next Democratic debate strongly reflects America's disconnect with these candidates and the absence of interest in their far-fetched policies,” said Elaine Parker, President of the Job Creators Network Foundation. “The American people know what these big government programs will do to the economy, not to mention their wallets. Americans are pleased with the results of the Trump administration policies and are not interested in giving that up.”
