MSNBC host Chris Matthews said the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left on cultural issues during an appearance Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
“A lot of it’s cultural, not just economics,” Matthews said. “I think that the position Hillary Clinton, for example, took, on abortion, late-term abortions … get rid of the Hyde Amendment, pushed too far. I think a lot of the people [who] came out and voted in Pennsylvania, where I’m from, were pro-lifers. With all of Trump’s problems, morally, personally, whatever, they didn’t like Hillary’s position. I think the party moved too far to the left on cultural issues.”
Democrats are currently in an intra-party debate about their stance on abortion and whether pro-lifers are welcome within the party.
