Tulsi Gabbard: Canary in the Democratic Coal Mine

David Catron, The American Spectator

For a sense of how divorced the Democrats are from mainstream America, the collapse of Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign is instructive. Gabbard is a liberal who supports banning so-called assault weapons, raising the minimum wage to $15, free college tuition, etc. But her positions on abortion and health care are relatively moderate. Moreover, she is circumspect about impeachment, the only responsible position for a sitting congresswoman, and supports withdrawing American troops from Syria. Thus, her poll numbers are tanking. If a liberal like Tulsi Gabbard is too moderate for today’s Democrats, they have no chance of beating Trump.
