Last Tuesday there was an eye-opening article from Investors Business Daily (IBD) that showed how out of touch and blindly loyal Democrats are to the cause and to the current president. Notice in the charts below how the independents are far closer to Republicans on the various measures and it is the Democrats who are skewed away from the norm.

We keep hearing about how the Republican Party is full of radical Tea Party crazies. But our latest IBD/TIPP Poll shows that it's Democrats who are out of touch with reality and well outside the mainstream.The public overwhelmingly believes the country is headed in the wrong direction, that current economic policies aren't working, that President Obama is doing a bad job, that government should be smaller and that ObamaCare should be repealed. But not Democrats.On issue after issue, in fact, Democrats are the outliers by wide margins, according to an analysis of the December IBD/TIPP survey.
Well, there is that.They are, by and large, Pollyanna-ish about the economy, they can see no evil when it comes to Obama or ObamaCare, and they are extremists when it comes to the size and role of the federal government.
