For a number of months, the media directive in the U.S has been to tarnish one of its own progressive candidate's, a senator from the state of Vermont by the name of Bernie Sanders. But to much of their dismay, the progressive candidate has led in every poll in the U.S since February of 2016. This new poll by Quinnipiac finally puts the question to rest, completely.
The poll starts off with the favorable and unfavorable, with women Sanders pulling a 50% favorable and 34% unfavorable; while with men, he trails at 46% favorable and 42% unfavorable. So this actually means that Bernie Sanders has a higher net favorability rate with women than men. Breaking this poll down even further, with Blacks the Senator holds a 70% favorable and 10% unfavorable. With the Latino/Hispanic base, he holds a 55% favorable and a 21% unfavorable. And finally, among whites, Sanders holds a 43% favorable with a 45% unfavorable.
Now some could say that this is just one poll and possibly an outlier but in fact, a Harvard-Harris poll was done back in 2016 showed nearly identical results. Showing Bernie Sanders had a 58% approval rating with women, 55% with men, 73% with blacks, 68% with Hispanics/Latinos, and a 52% with whites.
For many months, nearing over a year, the majority of major news outlets have been pressing a completely false narrative that Senator Sanders has and still is unilaterally supported by single, heterosexual, white men. Over the past few months, there have been several polls disproving that myth but none have been of this weight or magnitude. This new Quinnipiac poll swiftly puts an end to all discussion on that matter. This false premise that the Senator is a "candidate" or a "politician" for the white middle class is officially debunked.
Though the many (news media outlets) will not report on this because it goes very much so against their narrative, and disrupts the natural framework for a 2020 presidential run, we the people need to move forward with our information, we the people need to rise up and take a stand, and ensure the safety of our nation and our planet by electing progressive and forward thinking candidates by removing all the negative falsehoods that lay round them.
