Sanders surges ahead of Iowa caucuses

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/474777-sanders-surges-ahead-of-iowa-caucuses

While I am a supporter of senator Warren, Sanders keeps surprising me.
I still don't understand why he never registered as a democrat, while he runs as one and caucuses with the democratic party.

primary today, I would vote for:

There are a number of votes where he conspicuously voted against the majority of Democrats, particularly on gun control and Russian sanction votes.

42. I await your quantifying that claim with statistics one of these days.

 

He's never served in public office as a Democrat, so I think that "Supe- I" might be more accurate, if facts are of interest.

In any case, for a "Super-Democrat" as you put it, he certainly seems to like to reach across that aisle to Republicans, doesn't he?

In fact, he is surging ahead of the caucuse. As in, he he is doing well in polls before the caucus. Hopefully that sticks!

10. A one-point rise in the RCP Iowa aggregate is not a "surge"

 

This is one of the many reasons why I can't take the Hill seriously. This kind of sensationalist silliness has become the norm there, of late.

RCP for Iowa:
