Yeah, Democrats are going to have to decide soon, like within the next week or so, if the DSA stirs the Democrat drink or vice versa.
The Democrat party does not have a history that encourages optimism, frankly. I wouldn’t be surprised if Democrats choose to trade their principles - ok that’s a joke since we all know Democrats have no principles - for the electoral gains the DSA might give them.
Based on current events and the history of the Democrat party, I predict they’ll be socialist as long as it means they follow popular opinion. They will even go full Marxist as long as popular opinion polls give them reason to change (assuming current national polls would do so, which they do not).
This is why Democrats live by the focus group. They’re just measuring how far popular opinion would support their move to communism, something they’ll come up with (oh by the way) only when they have full Federal power.
