A couple Bernie related items to star the day:
And from Newsweek:
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders failed in his bid for the presidency—but his ideas are increasingly popular.
Recent polls have shown that progressive ideas are catching on, largely as a function of organized opposition to President Donald Trump’s policies. Half of Americans now believe in climate change and are concerned about it, Gallup found this week. This, as President Trump walked back Tuesday environmental regulations put forth by former President Barack Obama.
A plurality of respondents, 48 percent, was against the Keystone XL pipeline, Pew Research Center found. Just a few years ago some 60 percent of the public supported the pipeline and less than half the country was concerned about global warming.
Sanders, the Vermont independent who lost in the primaries to eventual Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, was both a fierce advocate for fighting climate change and battling against the Keystone pipeline, which the senator slammed after Trump signed an order pushing its construction forward.
