No. I’m arguing that moderate Democrats are ignoring what drives Sanders' base — to their detriment.

Clearly, based on your responses, we see this from different viewpoints, and that’s fine. I can respect that. My priorities revolve around an equitable future for minorities and none of the candidates are offering any tangible solutions here. They simply don’t go far enough.

Also, polling across the country argues that Sanders (or any Democrat for that matter) can beat Trump. I’m not buying the “so and so can’t beat Trump” argument and neither are many voters.

As I stated in my piece, vote for who you want and when it’s all on the table keep that same energy and vote Trump out in November. That’s what I intend to do.
