Nancy Pelosi is losing her grip on the Democrat party

Democrats are so busy twisting themselves into a knot attacking Trump over coronavirus and the anti-police protests that they’ve forgotten that the White House isn’t the only seat up for grabs in the November election.

New polls are indicating that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is in grave danger of losing her grip as Republican and far-left progressive challengers gain ground on several establishment Democrat Congressional seats.

Case in point, a recent Data for Progress poll shows that longtime Pelosi ally Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) is down by double digits to progressive challenger Jamaal Bowman.

Pelosi and other longtime Democrat fixtures may have thought that their blue seats were safe from Republican challengers, but a new enemy has risen up within their own ranks: Progressives that believe the Democrat establishment is just another wing of the GOP.

Engel has held his seat for three decades, but if the polls are to be trusted, his time may be up. Breitbart reported on Thursday:

The survey, taken June 11 -15 among 525 likely Democrat voters, showed Engel down by ten percent, 31 percent to Bowman’s 41 percent, in the primary race for New York’s 16th District. The survey indicated that there is room for a shift, as more than a quarter — 27 percent — remain undecided. However, the results of the follow-up question did not bode well for the incumbent.

Given that you are undecided, who are you leaning towards supporting?” the survey asked, showing 40 percent choosing Bowman and 18 percent selecting Engel.

Bowman enjoys the support of some of the most visible progressive figureheads, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), among others. Pelosi, on the other hand, recently endorsed Engel’s re-election campaign.

Pelosi has clashed with these so-called progressives — better described as outright socialists — since the rise of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and her squad of fellow freshman far-left colleagues. At one point last year, after Ocasio-Cortez dared to cross her, Pelosi sniped that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world. But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people and that’s how many votes they got.”

Progressives have made it clear that Pelosi — as far-left as most normal Americans believe her to be — is not nearly socialist enough for their taste. Last year, she was able to dismiss them as fringe agitators. Considering the current political climate, she simply can’t fall back on that belief anymore.

Need to get rid of all top Democrats and far left . The republicans need to get control of house and keep the senate. I fear for my children and grandkids if Democrats get any control. They have torn America apart since Obama was in for 8 years. They hire these thugs to loot and burn and to get control by force. We need law and order back and need protection by our police. We also need to get more conservative judges in Supreme Court.

All of those against America should be gone. In fact they have been in office longer than they should be. They aren’t for America or its citizens. Time to remove them.

Nasty Nancy Pelosi is on her way out the door. Americans will vote to eradacate Pelosi. With Nasty Nancy Pelosi’s nasty attitude, her constant whining, her hateful attitude towards our President, her fellow Demorats, and any human crossing her path, old Nasty Nancy Pelosi needs to be put out to pasteur with some of her fellow constituants, such as H.Clinton, Schumer, and the rest of her clan. I vote eliminate Pelosi’s position. Anyone with me? Vote fire Pelosi now!

Nasty Nancy Hates Trump so much that she does not care about the American citizens any longer. Her district has one of the most homeless in the country. Bragging about her 24,000 freezer with gourmet Ice cream while people did not know how they were going to eat.

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Maxine waters. Get them out of Congress they are killing the American people. I’m not cool with that at all. Another fight when Trump wins the election if they stay in office. I’m not going to deal with this another 4years of trying to impeach him again…
