Video shows why Bernie Sanders is America’s most popular politician
By Ernest A. Canning
A newly released Harvard Harris poll reveals that Bernie Sanders is not only America’s most popular political leader but that the Vermont senator is the only national politician who is viewed favorably by a majority of the American electorate.
While that bodes well for the next presidential election in 2020, it is vital that the American electorate immediately embrace the principles enunciated by the Sanders-led movement, Our Revolution, to “reclaim democracy for the working people of our country by harnessing the transformative energy of the ‘political revolution.’ Through supporting a new generation of progressive leaders, empowering millions to fight for progressive change and elevating the political consciousness, Our Revolution will transform American politics to make our political and economic systems once again responsive to the needs of working families.”
The 2018 mid-term election can provide a pivotal moment for the Sanders-led political revolution. We must take on any and every politician who has become so compromised by corporate wealth as to become the agent of oligarchy and the Donald Trump kleptocracy. This means striving to support genuine progressives at the federal, state and local levels — progressive leaders, who, Our Revolution observes, must be ” dedicated to transforming America’s corrupt campaign finance system and rigged economy.”
