Democrats are still trying to understand why they lost so big in November's elections. I think the answer is simple: Americans don't share the extreme liberal viewpoints of the Democrat party.
A perfect example, was the partisan Torture Report that Senator Dianne Feinstein released a week ago. In three new polls, Americans say that what the CIA did was necessary when put in the context of 9/11.
In a PEW poll, 51% say torture was justified and only 43% thought the report should have been released.
Lastly, the NJ.com (New Jersey.com) website has been conducting an online poll. While the voting is a small sample and multiple votes are possible, it does show that those being polled don't think that it was appropriate for Feinstein to have released the report:
