Frank Luntz reacted to the democratic presidential debates
The democratic party is always unrecognizable from what it was a generation ago, according to the pollster Frank Luntz.
This week, 2020 Democratic presidential debates are the last proof for the party lurched to the left in the last few years, Luntz said Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham angle.”
“This is not your parents’ Democratic party,” he said. “This is not your older sister, the democratic party. It has changed significantly. And in the last two-and-a-half years, it has lost the focus-both on the economic policy and … for social policy.

Luntz added that he believed Democrats speak to a more liberal audience than the subsequent candidate response, if the candidate challenges President Trump in a General election, the debate in the next year.
“These are the Democratic debates,” he said this week’s events.

Swalwell, one of the youngest candidates in the 2020-field, took a direct swipe at Biden’s age on Thursday in the debate.
“I was six years old, as a presidential candidate, the California joined the Democratic Convention and said,” It is time to put the torch to a new generation of Americans.’ This candidate was then-said Biden, Senator Joe,” Swalwell.
“Joe Biden was right 32 years ago and he is still right today.”
