Bernie Sanders supporters are right now as angry and uncooperative as they’re going to get. Time heals all wounds and in seven months most will have remembered nothing is more important than defeating Donald Trump. After all, that’s what Sanders kept telling them–when he wasn’t talking about how great a guy his good friend Joe Biden is. Only a minority of Sanders supporters said the Vermont Senator should not endorse Joe Biden for president when polled earlier this week, days before Sanders formally did so:
This same survey pool, including the Democrat primary voters who thought Sanders should’ve refrained from endorsing Biden, found Biden beating Trump by 5 points in November.
There will be no split at the Milwaukee virtual convention. Most Sanders supporters will fall in line as Sanders himself did. It would be -ist not to.
