Newly released polling data shows the majority of Americans are concerned that Congressional Democrats have swung too far to the left.
Rasmussen released data Thursday showing that 55% of likely voters say Congressional Democrats are too far to the left on most issues.
“A majority of voters think congressional Democrats are too liberal, and agree with the Senate GOP leader that voters don’t want to ‘fundamentally transform America,'” Rasmussen said. “A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 55% of Likely U.S. voters believe Democrats in Congress are too liberal on most issues. Sixteen percent (16%) think congressional Democrats are too moderate, while 20% think their policies are about right.”
The report comes after other pollsters recorded a historic swing to the right among Americans last year.
“On average, Americans’ political party preferences in 2021 looked similar to prior years, with slightly more U.S. adults identifying as Democrats or leaning Democratic (46%) than identified as Republicans or leaned Republican (43%),” Gallup said. “However, the general stability for the full-year average obscures a dramatic shift over the course of 2021, from a nine-percentage-point Democratic advantage in the first quarter to a rare five-point Republican edge in the fourth quarter.”
