Good news Jim! The Progressive Wing agrees with you that Bernie is willing to fight for healthcare as an American right, but that all countries should offer it if they can. We know our country can afford it.

The primary day KS-03 was a strange one in politics, almost as strange as Arizona, Kentucky and Rhode Island were for Bernie Sanders in 2016. Birdies, you may remember that there were holdouts in KY primary, in which it showed Bernie in the lead. Then I remember following the Lexington journalists on twitter, and they too could not believe how the numbers changed in a county that had already reported its numbers of Bernie’s lead suddenly flipping to Clinton. In AZ and RI, there weren’t enough poll stations open for the long lines, and in AZ, Clinton was already declared …Continue reading →

The latest Harvard-Harris poll, conducted between October 14 and October 18, affirms that voters are increasingly favoring Sen. Bernie Sanders and progressivism while President Donald Trump’s favorability continues its downward spiral.
Sanders’ total favorability in this latest poll is 53 percent, and it is highest among hispanics (66 percent) and African-Americans (77 percent). His numbers dwarf other leading politicians’ on the left and right, including Hillary Clinton, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer. Donald Trump’s unfavorable ratings were the highest of any politician included at 56 percent. Only 37 percent of respondents view Sanders’ unfavorably.
The poll also asked registered Democrats if they support the party embracing progressive policies and moving further to the left. Fifty-two percent of total respondents were in favor, including 69 percent of millennials, 55 percent of women, 65 percent of Hispanics, and 55 percent of African-American Democratic Party voters.
Since Trump’s election, several polls have found that Sanders is the most popular politician in the country, including previous Harvard-Harris polls conducted earlier this year. Additionally, a July 2017 Morning Consult poll and a survey conducted by Fox News in March 2017 found similar results. A July 2017 poll conducted by Public Policy Polling found that Sanders would defeat Trump by 13 percentage points if a general presidential election was held at that time.
