Let's try this again - testing......... An op in Huffpo by Norman Soloman, an activist and Bernie organizer is stating the obvious that the Democratic establishment is as nervous about Ocasio-Cortez's appeal to voters as the Republicans are. Interesting that the article cites polls by both Reuters-Ipsos and a national survey by the Kaiser Foundation that show a vast majority of Americans want health-care for all and higher taxes on the wealthy. That is what democracy should be about but neither Party at present is serving the interests of the American people. Which is why younger activist politicians such as AOC and Tulsi Gabbard are so threatening and under attack by the vested establishment of both parties "That’s because turning the Democratic Party into a truly progressive force will require turning “primary” into a verb. The corporate Democrats who dominate the party’s power structure in Congress should fear losing their seats because they’re out of step with constituents. And Democratic voters should understand that if they want to change the party, the only path to do so is to change the people who represent them. Otherwise, the leverage of Wall Street and the military-industrial complex will continue to hold sway. These days, with fingers to the wind, incumbents often give lip service to proposals that have wide public support nationwide, such as Medicare for All (70 percent) and higher taxes on the wealthy (76 percent). But big gaps remain between what most congressional" Democrats are willing to fight for and what their constituents actually want." https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entr...rimary-challenges_us_5c3c146fe4b01c93e00b15b4 http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2018/08/new-poll-majority-of-gop-voters-support-medicare-for-all.html What does this split within the Democratic party mean for it's chances of unseating Republican control of the WH in 2020?
