Apparently, some internal polling has recently been completed by the DNC and it’s not looking good for Democrats as more and more voters see them as the party of no solutions.

‘If It’s Protecting People, It’s Moral’: Top Dem Sidesteps Pelosi Again by Defending the Use of Walls
During an interview with Fox News, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer broke with Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s comments and said he was open to a border barrier.
“Look I think physical barriers are a part of the solution,” Hoyer said.
This is not the first time that Hoyer has admitted that Democratic lawmakers are not fully opposed to a wall, pointing out that they have been supportive of stronger border security in the past.
“We’ve supported substantial restraints,” said Hoyer in a previous interview. “We’ve supported fencing. We’ve supported other technologies. So my own view is that this is not an issue of morality.
