He isn’t actually a Democrat….
As an Independent technically?
He actually pimps the Democrats to get power hanging with the party….
He describes himself by his main views as a Democratic Socialist…
And other Democratic Senator’s ARE NOT happy with his socialist agenda, but do not want to diss Sanders in public because they need every vote then can get in Republican majority Senate…They would much rather have a moderate like Biden, Buttigieg or even Klobuchar one would think though the chances for the last two are fairly remote….Maybe Bloomberg?
Sound a bit like the dynamic over over on the other side of the political spectrum in the Senate?
Senate Democrats are feeling queasy about their party’s presidential primary after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) seized front-runner status by winning the New Hampshire primary, while former Vice President Joe Biden stumbled to a fifth-place finish.
Democratic senators have been careful not to criticize Sanders publicly, fearing that it could undermine party unity heading into the November general election, which they view as a must-win contest.
But they have serious questions about the electability of their self-described democratic socialist colleague and the problems he may create down-ballot for vulnerable Senate candidates.
Several of Sanders’s signature proposals, such as “Medicare for All,” tuition-free college, cancelling student debt and the sweeping Green New Deal, don’t even have support from a majority of Democratic senators.
“I think there’s a substantial element of people worried about where we’re going,” said a Democratic senator, who requested anonymity to comment on discussions with colleagues.
Asked about Sanders’s reputation as a lawmaker on the far left of the nation’s ideological spectrum, the lawmaker said, “Senators worry about that.”
“Politicians worry all the time,” the source added.
Democrats don’t want to speak out because there’s a growing chance that Sanders will be the nominee….
