A CAU­TION­ARY POLL

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

A new sur­vey of­fers ev­i­dence that the Demo­cratic Party has some work to do, at least as far as ef­fec­tive po­lit­i­cal brand­ing and im­age-mak­ing goes.

A new CBS News poll of close to 6,000 reg­is­tered U.S. vot­ers finds that 45 per­cent of U.S. vot­ers say there isn’t “a leader” of the Demo­cratic Party at the mo­ment; 51 per­cent of Repub­li­cans, 50 per­cent of in­de­pen­dents and 34 per­cent of Democrats agree with this.

This trend is not par­tic­u­larly help­ful in an elec­tion year.

Re­spon­dents were di­vided over who led the party, with near equal per­cent­ages cit­ing Se­nate Mi­nor­ity Leader, Chuck Schumer; House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Bernie San­ders.

Only 7 per­cent over­all said the Demo­cratic leader is Hil­lary Clin­ton and 4 per­cent over­all said the leader was sim­ply “some­one else.”
