In a 60 Minutes interview this weekend, interviewer Lesley Stahl asked Pelosi about whether the different factions within the Democratic party are fractured, singling out

Stahl: "You are contending with a group in Congress. Over here on the left flank are these self-described socialists. On the right these moderates. You yourself said that you're the only one who can unify everybody. And the questions is - can you?

Pelosi: By in large, whatever orientation they came to Congress with, they know that we have to hold the center. That we have to go down the mainstream.

Stahl: They know that?

Pelosi: They do

Stahl: But it doesn't look like that. It looks as if it's fractured.... You have these wings - AOC and her group on one side

Pelosi interjects: "well that's like five people."

The Congressional Progressive Caucus has 98 members, making it the second largest group in Congress, according to the New NY Post, which notes that AOC is one of the group's most prominent freshmen members.

Pelosi is not in control. Good news for the GOP. Likely the progressives will drive the party platform to the far left driving more voters away.
