I want to here from the people that lean left and have or will vote democrat..another socialist,Ayanna Pressley, unseated another long-term democrat in Massachusetts.

Is the Democratic party embracing socialism?...How do you you feel about this trend?

I do not lean to one part or another, but usually judge each candidate based on what I believe. That said, nationally I think the democratic party is split into. One side is very left, the other is pro-business left. Remember.. Obama and Clinton initially supported the Trans Pacific trading agreement. The democrats, especially in the northeast, now seemed squarely pegged on domestic issues, among them redistribution of wealth and government supplied health care. Otherwise, they are for whatever Trump abhors, and hate what he is pleased with. Look at the senate hearing for the supreme court. A lot of democratic grandstanding, and protestors reportedly funded by the DNC.
