During his latest “My Take” Tuesday, “Varney & Co.” host Stuart Varney discusses the conservative sweep taking place in European elections, arguing the politics are changing fast as voters reject “Democratic socialism.”
STUART VARNEY: Suddenly, conservatives are winning elections in Europe.
To the left, this is a five-alarm fire: their political dominance is threatened.

There are signs. Americans are getting tired of unchecked immigration, unchecked inflation and the prospect of eye-watering utility bills coming soon.
The socialist left here is out of steam and reeling.
