A new poll from Rasmussen Reports indicates that a surprisingly high percentage of Democrats agree with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s assertion that America “was never that great.”

Cuomo recently made those comments to a room full of people at a bill-signing event, drawing audible gasps and awkward laughter from the crowd.

“We’re not going to make America great again,” Cuomo said, taking a shot at President Trump’s famous campaign slogan. “It was never that great.”

While a vast majority of voters disagree with the anti-American sentiment, a startling number of Democrats agree.

“One-in-five Democrats agree, but a sizable majority of all voters thinks he was off-base,” Rasmussen reported.

According to the same poll, 67 percent disagree with Cuomo’s statement, while 17 percent, in general, agree and another 16 percent are undecided.

Leaving this author to ask – How the hell is the number of Americans who disagree with Cuomo, not in the 90th percentile? Why does anyone agree with him? How can you possibly be undecided when you live in the greatest country on Earth?

Democrats are clearly weighing the poll down here, as they consistently do with other polls about patriotism, but their mainstream party leaders agree. That is the problem.

In just the last few weeks, contenders for the White House in 2020 have said:

  • Cory Booker – “There’s things that are savagely wrong in this country.”
  • Bernie Sanders – “There is something fundamentally immoral and wrong about (America).”
  • Elizabeth Warren – The American law enforcement system is “racist” from “front to back.”

And of course, Cuomo’s assessment.

Amazingly, on the heels of his un-American comments, Cuomo accused President Trump of being un-American.

“It’s un-American for this President to be spreading the division among us when it was his job to bring unity to all of us,” said the man who once told conservatives to leave his state.

Trump countered by daring Cuomo to run against him in 2020, a far less likely scenario now that the governor committed political suicide in front of mainstream and independent voters who actually love America.

“He called me and said I will never run for president against you,” Trump claimed. “But maybe he wants to.”

“Please do it. Please do it. Please! He did say that. The one thing we know, they do say anybody that runs against Trump suffers. That’s the way it should be,” he added.

RNC spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany recently told Fox News that voters will hear “anti-American, pro-socialist rhetoric” from the Democrats’ debate stage in 2020.

She accused some in the party of “destroying the very fabric of our country” with their anti-American comments.

How did one political party in this country go so completely off the rails in their hatred of America?
