American’s on the whole are NOT as open minded as most of us KNOW….
There is only ONE current Presidential candidate that fits the socialist definition …..
A majority ofAmerican’s would vote for a candidate regardless of age, religion, being a woman or their skin coler….
But being gay or a socialist WOULD be an issue for most Republicans and even some Independent voters and a lesser amount of Democrats…
Democrats could nominate someone that could play into the 2020 Donald Trump re-election campaign’s plan….
More than nine in 10 Americans say they would vote for a presidential candidate nominated by their party who happened to be black, Catholic, Hispanic, Jewish or a woman. Such willingness drops to eight in 10 for candidates who are evangelical Christians or are gays or lesbians. Between six and seven in 10 would vote for someone who is under 40 years of age, over 70, a Muslim or an atheist.
Just one group tested — socialists — receives majority opposition. Less than half of Americans, 45%, say they would vote for a socialist for president, while 53% say they would not.
As the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries get underway, it may be instructive to know that little prejudice stands in the way of Democratic as well as national support for candidates who happen to be Catholic, Hispanic, Jewish or female. Being especially young or advanced in age could pose minor appeal problems.
Being gay or lesbian, Muslim, an atheist or a socialist wouldn’t cause much stir among Democrats, but these candidates could have difficulty attracting support from Republicans and, to a lesser extent, from political independents…
In plain language ?
Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg COULD unfortunately give Democrats a step down against Donald Trump come November…
