10. Not very. It's the "core" or "base" - not the "mushy middle"
Just look at the polls here like "would you support Hillary if she ran in 2004?" It was almost universally "NO!" (which surprised me a little, though I don't think she should run either). Actual polls of Democratic primary voters show her WAY out in front if she got in the race.

Then look at the high percentage of people who put Dean way at the bottom of their "support" list yet he is the clear leader. Or the non-existent support for Lieberman when the polls show him in the middle of the pack or above.

Lastly, it seems pretty clear that Kucinich has STRONG support HERE, but he's fighting with two non-candidates for last place in the real world.

If DU was indicative of the whole party we would never win an election. Just read some of the conspiracy theories in the 9/11 threads on how the towers were taken out to see an example. We represent from the core left of the party into the "fringy left" with only a few of the center-left people who haven't been tombstoned as "closet freepers".
