Regarding the Nov. 11 news article “Survey explores factions within major political parties”:

The Pew Research Center has done a great service to the Democratic Party by reporting that the far left is a minority within the party. I believe all liberals want much of the same changes in the social safety net as does the far left, but they want it done incrementally because of opposing views — not all in the same bill.
