Former Vermont Governor and DNC Chairman Howard Dean argued that “Jesus was probably to the left of the Democratic Party” on Thursday’s “Morning Joe” on MSNBC.
Dean introduced polling he had conducted while he was DNC Chairman with, “I was wondering why evangelicals didn’t vote for Democrats, because if you look at the red letter version of the Bible, Jesus was probably to the left of the Democratic Party. So we did polling, and here’s what we found. This is ten years ago. Evangelicals over 55, it was all about abortion and gay marriage. Under 35 in this country, their number one issue was poverty, and their number two issue was climate change.”
