Well this news ought to scare the shit out of old conservatives that still are afraid of the Red Menace…Bernie is a socialist…..and yet his popularity is growing…….contrary to the narrative on the Right.
There is a news report that has come out as we get closer to the beginning of the beauty contest we call the run for the nomination…..
The case for Bernie Sanders is that he is the unity candidate.
The Vermont senator is unique in combining an authentic, values-driven political philosophy with a surprisingly pragmatic, veteran-legislator approach to getting things done. This pairing makes him the enthusiastic favorite of non-Republicans who don’t necessarily love the Democratic Party, without genuinely threatening what’s important to partisan Democrats. If he can pull the party together, it would set him up to be the strongest of the frontrunners to challenge President Donald Trump.
Sanders breaks from the pack in constructive ways on foreign and monetary policy, where the president has an unusual amount of freedom to act. And in the legislative arena, where any president is going to be sharply constrained, he stands the best chance of getting the left on board with the sure-to-be-disappointing compromises that will be necessary to advance the ball at all on important issues.
Bernie seems to be holding in there…..he has the young vote….but does that mean those will actually vote if he is not the nominee…..
Here is a thought….many of the supporters of RFK after his death switched to support George Wallace….could we see a repeat of that type of switch in 2020?
