Progressives Don't Run the Democratic Party [View all]

In a recent poll 55% of Democrats listed themselves as either conservative or centrist Democrats, while 43% listed themselves as liberal/progressive Democrats.

I believe a centrist Democrat, like Hillary, has an advantage because she will work within the system. Bernie and progressives want to blow it up and start over. Just check out posts by Bernie supporters. When they are not attacking Republicans they are attacking Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

This primary polling reflects the above numbers. Among Democrats she is crushing Bernie among center and center right Democrats. In fact the only demographic among Democrats Bernie wins is the young and more liberal Democrats.

The big guy agrees with me.

“I think one of the best decisions I ever made as president was to ask Hillary Clinton to serve as our nation’s secretary of state,” the president said.
