You are by far the worst candidate to go up against Trump. Once again, just as in 2016, the Democratic Party has managed to vomit up a corrupt, racist, conservative war criminal when the base of the party needs progressive change. There is absolutely no enthusiasm for politics as usual. The American people need to have their needs met in realms of housing, healthcare, and jobs that pay a living wage. Furthermore, climate change, wealth concentration, and neoliberalism more broadly are global emergencies that need to be rectified. For these repeated failures to take our needs seriously, many progressives have repudiated the Democratic Party and will join and vote for a 3rd party during this presidential election. The Democratic Party has been exposed for what it truly is; Republican Lite.
