Socialists Stick Together: AOC to Endorse Bernie For President

The endorsement could represent a coup for the socialist Presidential candidate.

Published

Freshman Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will endorse Vermont Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in a campaign rally in Queens on Saturday, according to reporting Tuesday night from the Washington Post.

The formal endorsement places Ocasio-Cortez firmly in the camp of her fellow democratic socialist. AOC has become a symbol of the left wing of the Democratic Party often represented by Sanders, and it’s probably unsurprising that the rising Democrat star would align with Sanders, who she aligns closely on policy.

Some spectators expected Ocasio-Cortez to endorse Elizabeth Warren.

AOC’s endorsement could represent a potential game-changer in a race where Sanders has lingered solidly in either second or third place, stuck behind establishment Democrat Joe Biden by polling averages of around four or five percent. Ocasio-Cortez’s endorsement could play a role in broadening Sanders’ support to women voters and Democrats who plan to participate in the New York primary.

Sanders’ campaign faces the challenge of proving the 78-year old Senator is up for the rigorous challenges of a Presidential campaign and the White House itself after the Vermont progressive suffered a heart attack earlier this month.

Since being released from the hospital, Sanders has shown a greater will to fight back against the corporate-establishment media complex, which frequently attempt to dismiss his campaign in an effort to protect the interests of “mainstream” Democrats such as Joe Biden.

Sanders is probably as far as left as it gets in the Democratic Party’s presidential primary, but his campaign is worth watching for conservatives and Trump supporters who plan on pointing out the corruption of the establishment Democratic Party.

Wisconsin Polling Shows President Trump ROUNDLY Defeating Entire Democratic Field

Democratic prospects in the Midwest are looking tough.

Published

on

New polling from Quinnipiac released Thursday shows President Donald Trump handily defeating every major Democratic presidential candidate in hypothetical general election matchups.

Well-known Democrats Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden are the most competitive candidates against Trump in the Wisconsin general election, and even they lose by a considerable seven points to the incumbent Republican president.

Even Pete Buttigieg, an Indiana mayor who claims to have a credible path to victory in midwestern states the President grabbed from the Democratic Party in 2016, appears nowhere near seriously competing in the state.

The polling suggests Democrats will have a serious uphill battle in order to contend for the electoral votes of midwestern states such as Wisconsin, in 2020 or other future Presidential elections.

President Trump’s polling in statewide and national surveys has consistently improved as the Democratic Primary erupts in contention, suggesting that the divisions within the Democratic Party may bode well for his re-election.

The state was formerly assumed to be a safe blue state, before Trump won its electoral votes in a shocking upset in 2016. Pennsylvania and Michigan also went Republican for the first time in decades in Trump’s victory, and will prove essential to the election in 2020. Polling of the latter two states shows closer general election contests than in Wisconsin.

If Democrats are resigned to defeat in Midwestern states such as Wisconsin, they may choose to redouble their efforts in southwestern states such as Arizona or Texas.
