Whale and Politicians

At least 46% of Democrats in the Senate and House belong to one or more organizations that do not represent core Democratic values:
  • DINO (Democrat In Name Only - Typically vote more for conservative inititives than Democratic)
  • Evolving DINO (Slowly adopting DINO ideology)
  • Blue Dog Democrat (Claim to be moderates but often vote for conservative ideology that conflicts with Party values)
  • New Democrat (No more than a new name for the now-toxic Blue Dog name)
  • Progressive imposters
These are members who discourage Democrats from voting and should be sent packing in the next election.

The first two following links are CPSN post on these "Non-Democrats". The remaining links were filed by other sources.

The trouble started when the Party abandoned its working-class base.

Wall Street's Democrats

The New Democrats: The Coalition Pharma and Wall Street Love:

"Lobbyists have mingled with [Democratic] lawmakers and their staffers at least 850 times during fundraising events and informal get-togethers
[over the past 18 months]".

Democratic National Convention

The 2016 Democratic National Convention is scheduled for July 25 thru 28, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Democratic nominee will be officially decided at that time. As with the Republican Party, the Democratic presumptive nominee will be known much earlier.

Legend:

green check = Winner (Primary Election Only)
yellow check = Runoff
red check = Winner (General Election Only)
(hover) = Affiliated with Tea Party and/or endorsed by Tea Party during election.
(hover) = House Freedom Caucus (Tea Party 2.0 spawned by the Koch brothers). Members are much farther right than traditional Republicans. That group was the primary proponent and executor of the Republican Congressional strategy to force a government shutdown. The caucus is trying to hire Ed Buckham, aid to former Republican Majority Leader of the House and convicted criminal politician Tom DeLay. Buckham has a very shady past, crossing over the criminal line.
(hover) = Democrat In Name Only (DINO): Occassionally votes for Democratic inititives, but primary allegiance is conservative ideology.
(hover) = Evolving DINO: In transition to becoming a full-fledged DINO.
(hover) = Blue Dog Democrat: A group of elected officials from the Democratic Party who identify themselves as moderates, but often vote with Republicans on conservative ideology that conflicts with Democratic Party ideology.
(hover) = New Democrat Coalition: A group of elected officials from the Democratic Party who identify themselves as:
➠ a pro-growth, fiscally-responsible wing of the Democratic Party.
➠ a tech-savvy group of legislators who are tapped into the new economy.
New Democrats often vote with Republicans on conservative ideology that conflicts with Democratic Party ideology.
(hover) = Congressional Progressive Caucus: A group of elected officials from the Democratic Party who identify themselves as:
➠ Fighting for economic justice and security for all;
➠ Protecting and preserving our civil rights and civil liberties;
➠ Promoting global peace and security; and
➠ Advancing environmental protection and energy independence.
Details of the four point are available.

(hover) = Progressive Imposter: Democrats who belong to Congressional Progressive Caucus yet vote for Republican give-aways.
