n a previous analysis, I noted that Bernie Sanders is a clear favorite among Latino voters in California. A recent study by The Latino Community Foundation shows that young Latinos have an even stronger preference for Bernie, with over two-thirds rating the senator favorably. The favorability gap between Bernie Sanders and the other Democratic contenders […]
Norman Solomon: The obvious differences between Buttigieg, Biden and Bloomberg are apt to distract from their underlying political similarities. Fundamentally, they’re all aligned with the nation’s economic power structure — two as corporate servants, one as a corporate master.
Jeff Cohen: As Sen. Warren and “Mayor Pete” heatedly question each other’s career history, they put Sanders’ strongest suit into the spotlight: his remarkably consistent history.
Norman Solomon: The spectacle of Kerry praising Biden as a seasoned leader amounts to one supporter of the Iraq catastrophe attesting to the character and experience of another supporter of the same catastrophe.
Berry Craig: Bevin lost for two main reasons. First, the state Democratic party and pro-Beshear organizations—including unions—ran impressive GOTV campaigns. Secondly, Bevin is a one-termer “because he is a jerk.”
Robert Reich: Even if Trump is gone, if the Senate remains in Republican hands and McConnell is reelected, America loses because McConnell will still have a chokehold on our democracy.
Thom Hartman: Today’s Republican politicians are wholly owned agents of corporations and the billionaire class, stoking extreme anger over a few social issues (immigration, guns, God, gays, race) and using it to bring in the Fox rubes that the billionaire Murdochs kindly hand them.
John Peeler: Any serious reform plan, whether for health care or green energy, must think through how these workers are to be helped. I think Warren and Bernie Sanders do fairly well in thinking through this challenge.
Margaret Kimberley: In reality he is running to stop Bernie Sanders because he knows that given a level playing field Sanders would emerge triumphant.
Adrian D. Pantoja: With campaign offices in Latino enclaves like East Los Angeles and a sizable Latino campaign staff, Bernie Sanders is making it clear that he’s serious about winning the Latino vote.
Frank Fear: Let’s face it: the independent option is a personal choice in response to a non-accommodating system. What we need is for the system to change.
Robert Reich: Trump and his enablers claim non-citizens are voting in droves. Trump himself said that thousands of undocumented immigrants voted in 2016. Another lie.
Glen Ford: In the United States it is axiomatic that concentrations of poor Black people are bad, while high-rises full of affluent white people are good.
