Bottom Line

Senator Bernie Sanders caught the political world off guard in 2016 by nearly defeating Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. He succeeded in showing that the Democratic base voters are far to the left of Clinton and excited progressive activists throughout the nation. However, in 2020, he’ll be competing against a whole group of progressive candidates rather than the personification of the political class.
