A new poll shows that nearly 70% of Americans think Democrats are completely out of touch with their concerns. And to that, I can only say, I’m shocked — you mean most Americans aren’t obsessed with making sure men can be in the bathroom with little girls?

Here’s what the ABC News/Washington Post poll revealed:

Sixty-seven percent [67%] say the Democratic Party is out of touch with the concerns of most Americans… That’s a steeply negative turn for the Democrats, 19 percentage points more critical than when last asked three years ago, including especially steep losses in their base.

At the same time, only 58% of those polled say President Trump is out of touch with people’s concerns.

ABC News states, “The biggest change has occurred chiefly among the party’s own typical loyalists, with ‘out of touch’ ratings up 33 points among liberals, 30 points among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents and 26 points among moderates and nonwhites alike.”

Of course, the ABC News report is hoping to eek out as much negativity against Trump as possible — the report is for his first 100 days and states how it has been “no honeymoon.” (You can thank the media for that.) You can almost taste ABC’s glee reporting Trump’s historically low approval rating, 42%, but you can’t argue with the people who voted for him. Ninety-six percent have no regrets for supporting the president. That says a lot.

Now, can we get back to making bathrooms safe for our daughters again?
