Presidential candidate Jim Webb is among the dwindling few Democrats who lean conservative, and he admitted on Sunday the party has moved away from him.

"The party has moved way far to the left, and that’s not my Democratic Party," Webb said on "Fox News Sunday." "We need to bring working people back into the formula."

Guest host Bret Baier noted that Webb is way down in the polls at about 2.3 percent behind front-runner Hillary Clinton and even Sen. Bernie Sanders, a proud socialist who has been drawing large crowds.

"Most political analysts will tell you that Democrats have moved resolutely to the left and that basically Hillary Clinton has renounced Clintonism, which really was the vital core of the center, used to be, in your party," Baier said.

Webb touted an annual medical clinic coming up on Saturday for people who don't have medical insurance. The clinic typically treats 6,000 people, he said.

"These are people who have been forgotten by both parties and, I think, they need a voice," he said.

If there are any conservative voters left in the Democratic Party, Webb would be their most appealing candidate. He won the Democratic straw poll at the recent Western Conservative Summit, The Washington Times reported.
