The 2020 Democratic Platform caters to its extreme left. It demands funding for Planned Parenthood and international abortion agencies, mentions LGBTQ+ 32 times, and pushes for LGBT sex education in public schools, advocates for federal health plans to cover sex-change operations, and would ban any counseling of young people to affirm their biologic gender and heterosexuality. It pushes for universal health care and calls “climate change…a global emergency.” These are just a few of the far-left policies embraced by national Democrats. It’s also the reason so many Kentucky Democrats have switched parties and why Republicans are gaining in voter registration. Until national Democrats reject controversial and immoral policies, expect Kentucky to continue to trend Republican.
