Who are the Democratic socialists of America?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Cynthia Nixon, the self-proclaimed Democratic socialists. A look at the Democratic socialists of America and what the organization stands for.
As democratic socialists to chalk victories across the country during the primary season, there are signs that the wave, the impact on the democratic party.
With the support of Vermont sen. Bernie Sanders, a whole series of liberal candidates upsets moved in the Democratic primaries across the country this year by focusing on a Democratic socialist platform, with items on the agenda, such as the implementation of Medicare-for-all, free tuition fees, the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Agency and the impeachment of President Trump.
In the case of candidates for the primaries in the major competitions this year: New York Democratic congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Maryland democratic gubernatorial nominee Ben Jealous and Florida democratic gubernatorial nominee Andrew Gillum assumed to have won by the left wing of the party,.
The results were a colorful mix, but with a number of candidates to fall. Especially the “Sex and the City” actress and New York gubernatorial challenger Cynthia Nixon was solidly beaten by the establishment of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo last week in spite of a publicity campaign.
Cuomo mocked the idea of a left-hand wave in remarks Friday, saying that his brand of pragmatic advances the rule of law, where the true revolution.
“This is a revolution,” he said to his victory, according to The New York Daily News. “This is a wave. On the numbers. Not on some of the Twitter-sphere dialogue, where I tweet and you tweet me and between the two of us, we think we have a wave. We are not even a small wave.”
But there is no indication that the left press slows down and the elders of the party not to warn, to go to the party too far to the left of the page. Even the liberal former President Jimmy Carter is expressing concern that the Democrats could alienate independents.
“Independents need to know that your voice can invest in the Democratic party,” Carter said on Tuesday in a speech to his post-presidential center and library in Atlanta.
Joe Lieberman, the Democratic party candidate for Vice President in 2000, said in an interview with Fox News last month that Ocasio-Cortez, a fight for ideas, to get support across America.
“If I see someone that says really, she is a socialist-she is a very engaging, charismatic candidate — if you said to these policies, this policy is not supported in many places in the whole of America,” Lieberman.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., also concerns expressed about the left push for the impeachment of Trump, calling it a “gift” to the Republicans.
Pelosi told Politico in may, the indictment was popular in her district, but that they don’t support yet: “I’m away on foot removal from office for political reasons, and I’m not walking in the direction of it for political reasons. I think it is divisive and I think what we should do is always to try to unify.”
But there are signs that the increase in the number of hard Links is having an effect on more mainstream national candidates.
For example, while Cuomo Nixon challenge brushed, even had he dipped his toe in some left-wing positions, such as the abolition of ICE, was at the same time, as Nixon called it a “terrorist organization.”
Controversial, Cuomo took a left turn in August and declared that America “has never been so great.”
“We have not reached the size we achieve greatness when everybody is busy in America so that we reach true to size, if the discrimination and prejudice against women, 51 percent of our population is gone,” he said.
“I think this is just another example of Andrew Cuomo, to find out what a progressive sounds like and missing by a mile,” Nixon, NY1 said.
Top 2020 Democratic prospects have also started to approve some of these radical ideas. Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, have all expressed their support for the abolition or revision of ICE. US President Barack Obama recently expressed his support for Medicare-for-all pension plans.
Polls show growing support for socialism, once a dirty word in American political discourse. According to a Gallup poll, released in August, more Democrats view socialism positively than capitalism.
Fifty-seven percent of Democrats, Gallup’s respondents have a positive image of socialism, while only 47 percent of Democrats in the survey have positive feelings about capitalism.
The Republicans are licking their lips at the prospect of a hard-left of the Democrats. President Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo in July to predict that, if Democrats, to abolish, ICE-cream, you will get in the elections failed.
“Well, I hope you keep thinking about it. Because you are going to be such a hit,” he said.
