The "cure" for Bernie Sanders is better Democratic policies [View all]

There is a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth here on DU that Sanders is doing very well in the polls.

To that I say, take heart - Sanders (and also the other candidate with big poll numbers, Biden) gets a big boost from early name recognition. His numbers will inevitably drop as other candidates become better known to the electorate (Biden will have an even bigger drop, because not only is he a pretty bad campaigner, he is also a soft touch with the Republican party and the big banks).

BUT

if you really want to beat Sanders, please encourage your candidate of choice to adopt better (anti-corporatist, anti-crony, pro-people, pro-labor, pro-economic equity) policies.

It isn't some magic wand Sanders is waving. He's not popular because of his party affiliation (or lack of one). He's popular because he adopts policies that tell the rich and the elite and the comfortable in the status quo that some changes need to be made. America needs a raise.

America is desperate for a non-status quo leader. So, if you are worried about Sanders winning the democratic nomination, please tell your candidates that they need to get on board for change, not all of which will make their donors ecstatic.

My preferred candidate (and she was in 2016, as well) already is way on board for change.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren
