Yet if Sanders hopes to success the White House, he much better fix what David Leonhardt the the New York Times sees together a "big mistake." In his opinion piece, Leonhardt suggests that Sanders is not getting to out come voters beyond his passionate base. The last four men to get in the White House—Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump—did no make that very same mistake. "Even Trump, radical together he is, flouted Republican orthodoxy by sounding choose a populist Democrat on society Security, Medicare and trade," to write Leonhardt. In fact, candidate trumped was seen by voters as a relatively moderate nominee for a Republican.


not Sanders, though. "To placed it another way: can you think the one means that Bernie Sanders is signaling respect to voters exterior of his base?" asks Leonhardt. Sanders is acquisition a "maximist liberal" place on every large issue, even though as a city council he proved willingness come compromise, as on guns. In this campaign, there appears to it is in a "moral litmus test" in ~ play amongst progressives: adopt our positions completely or you're dead to us.
