Haha if you count screening laws as stricter gun laws??? but that's something that both Democrats and Republicans want. That's completely bipartisan. If you're talking about actually banning more guns, then you are dead wrong.

60% of Americans want stricter gun laws. again, you're wrong.

and no. saying it's on cnn is not citing. if I told you fox news called trump a nazi and said "of yeah it's there" would you accept it?

65% of Americans want immigration at the same level or higher. so you're wrong.

The "personal vendetta" stat I may have reworded in hyperbole, but aside from that, those numbers are 100% accurate.

Dude, they aren't made up. You don't have to look through anything. You look up, "Polling for (insert issue here), and you look at the results. I'll even let you cherry-pick your sources. Because the sources I got this information from are VERY generous to you.

no, you said you saw polls that said those things. I don't think those polls say the things you said they do. I can't look through every poll on all those stations to prove they don't exist.

if you want to argue that the majority of Americans believe things then provide evidence. otherwise I can make up stats too.

Wanting to keep legal immigration as is instead of cutting it down. That is something that almost 75% of Americans disagree with. The fact that they seem to be SO against the tax cuts, which nearly 80% of Americans disagree with. The way they have a personal vendetta against Trump. That's something that nearly 70% of Americans believe. They want stricter gun laws, that's something that most Americans also disagree with them on. They just very extreme with a lot of the policies that they want. I'm not asking whether or not YOU agree with them on these things, because that is irrelevant to what I'm saying. I'm talking about the polling I've seen from very generous sources that are mostly anti-trump(CNN, CBS, NBC)

I hold the (hopeful)opinion that Democratic leaders are more extreme than most of their constituency. Most Democrats that I know, including my brother, who is VERY liberal with a bachelor's degree from Cal for Political science, and starting law school soon, are very reasonable. I'd like to think that most Democrats are just as reasonable, and not nearly as extreme as some of their leaders. (Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, Corey Booker, Adam Schiff).
