Why are you so hostile to progressive voters?

Whooosh! I'm not. I am being sarcastic about your previous response to me.

You never answered my question upthread, and I'm curious. If voters are dissatisfied with a lack of progress, do you think that progressives should kill the bipartisan infrastructure bill if it doesn't have what they want on climate change?

Primarily I did not answer because what I think has nothing to do with the poll results I posted. Like I said, I had nothing to do with the study. I simply found it showing the trends I have been suggesting were sure to happen for the past few months. My opinion on a specific issue is irrelevant to those trends and this discussion.

Wall Street DEMs simply don't really like progressives. They want their votes. But they don't want to do anything to earn those votes beyond not being a Republican. They believe that anyone expecting significant change should quietly stay in their place, keep voting DEM, and wait for the Wall Street and corporate DEMs to decide when progressive issues can and should be addressed.

My only role in this is pointing out that the trends I've been predicting are beginning to materialize in the polls. . . and that the Wall Street DEMs will attack anyone who points out the impact of the Democrats' inability to drive an agenda as the majority party that even approaches the GQP's ability to drive their agenda when they are a minority.

Like it or not, the DEMs are heading for a massive defeat in 2022 if they don't figure out a better way to address this.
