REPORT: Bernie Sanders Privately Expressing Concerns About Joe Biden’s Campaign

After Bernie Sanders dropped out of the 2020 Democratic primary, he endorsed Joe Biden and even campaigned for him, just as he did for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Bernie was also tasked with shoring up the far left vote for Joe Biden but it’s not clear how well that has worked out.

Now, according to some sources, Bernie is privately expressing concerns about Biden’s campaign.

Sanders, who dropped out of the race in April and immediately endorsed Biden following a hard-fought Democratic primary battle last spring, has said he wishes Biden would focus more on kitchen table issues like higher wages, job growth and health care access in campaign stops rather than criticizing President Trump, the Washington Post reported, citing three sources familiar with his conversations.

Sanders, who garnered a youth movement around his two White House runs, also hoped that Biden would embrace progressive firebrands like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., more closely in an effort to gather more support from young voters. Ocasio-Cortez stumped for Sanders during his run…

The uncertainties also come as polls in some battleground states are tightening – although with Biden mostly in the lead – and reports that Biden’s support among Hispanics has been lagging.

Some people on the left seem to share Bernie’s concern.

Just as in 2016, the Democrats don’t look like a unified party.
