More moderate Democrats are sounding the alarm after internal polling showed that a vast majority of voters saw the party as having misplaced priorities on impeachment.

Democratic Rep. Anthony Brindisi of New York took his concerns straight to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and explained his rationale to Politico.

"It's very frustrating for me — someone coming from a district that was one of the districts that helped get us into the majority — having so much focus on things like impeachment or other issues that are divisive," he explained.

"We should be focusing on the kitchen table issues," Brindisi said.

He claims that other freshman Democrats agree with him that the agenda of the party does not match the voters' concerns. And their internal polling supports that opinion.

Polling for the Democratic Party found that 54 percent of voters said that Democrats were more focused on impeachment than any other policy. But only 10 percent of voters believed that impeachment should be their focus.

Democrats have also been frustrated by a lack of clarity on just what part of the impeachment process they have begun, or whether they can do so without the full support of the House.

Pelosi manifested that frustration when she snapped at reporters during a briefing and then stormed off angrily when they kept asking her to clarify the Democratic position on impeachment.
