Poll: 'Medicare for All' Support Is High -- But Complicated | RealClearPolitics
65/27 or 55/34

The first question was this one: "Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government's Medicare system? Nearly two-thirds of respondents answered yes, with only 27% opposed (and the rest undecided).

Caveat: "Do you support or oppose Medicare for All, which is a system that will eliminate all private health insurance companies, and where all Americans, not just older ones, get health insurance through the government's Medicare system?" Even with that caveat, 55% were in support, with 34% opposed.

How Hillary Clinton Won the Democratic Nomination Over Bernie Sanders -
Mrs. Clinton’s coalition of upscale and minority voters gave her a far different footprint than in 2008. She won more big-city counties and the suburbs around them than in her first presidential campaign, and she won dramatically more Southern counties with large African-American populations. That could help her in the general election: Cities and urban suburbs tend to be battleground areas, and Mrs. Clinton needs to maintain high levels of minority support.

Americans With Government Health Plans Most Satisfied
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' satisfaction with the way the healthcare system works for them varies by the type of insurance they have. Satisfaction is highest among those with veterans or military health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid, and is lower among those with employer-paid and self-paid insurance. Americans with no health insurance are least satisfied of all.

KING: The Democratic Party doesn't get why it's so unpopular - NY Daily News
A troubling new poll was just released showing that the Democratic Party is significantly less popular than both Donald Trump and Mike Pence. My gut tells me that Democrats will ignore this poll, or blame it on bad polling, and continue down the same course they are currently on: being funded by lobbyists and the 1%, straddling the fence or outright ignoring many of most inspirational issues of the time, and blaming Bernie Sanders for why they aren’t in power right now.

As a general rule the Democratic Party doesn’t listen well and struggles to hear the truth about itself.

In case you’ve been living under a rock, Republicans now control the House, the Senate, the presidency, and the overwhelming majority of state legislatures and governorships. This new poll from Suffolk University illustrates just how that’s possible. Here are the base results of the poll with favorable/unfavorable ratings.

 Pence: 47%/35%
Trump: 45%/47%
GOP: 37%/48%
Media: 37%/50%
Dem Party: 36%/52%
Hillary: 35%/55%
Congress: 26%/52%
Part of the reason why the Democratic Party is so reviled stems from leaked emails in which former DNC chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz appeared to show favortism to Clinton over Bernie Sanders.

In other words, the Democratic Party has a favorability rating 11 points lower than Pence, nine points lower than Trump, and even one point lower than the GOP.

What Democrats should learn from 2016 – Medium
The most powerful force in American politics today is anti-establishment fury at a system rigged by big corporations, Wall Street, and the super-wealthy.

This is a big reason why Donald Trump won the Republican nomination. It's also why Bernie Sanders took 22 states in the Democratic primaries, including a majority of Democratic primary voters under age 45.

There are no longer "moderates." There's no longer a "center." There's authoritarian populism (Trump) or democratic populism (which had beenBernie's "political revolution," and is now up for grabs).

If Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party don't recognize this realignment, they're in for a rude shock — as, I'm afraid, is the nation. Because Donald Trump does recognize it. His authoritarian ("I' am your voice") populism is premised on it.

Americans’ Distaste For Both Trump And Clinton Is Record-Breaking | FiveThirtyEight
Clinton and Trump are both more strongly disliked than any nominee at this point in the past 10 presidential cycles.

No past candidate comes close to Clinton, and especially Trump, in terms of engendering strong dislike a little more than six months before the election.

But polarization doesn't explain everything. If Trump and Clinton's strongly unfavorable ratings were simply a byproduct of polarized politics, you'd expect them to have high "strongly favorable" ratings too. They don't. You can see this in their net strong favorability ratings (the "strongly favorable" rating minus the "strongly unfavorable" rating):

No major party nominee before Clinton or Trump had a double-digit net negative "strong favorability" rating. Clinton's would be the lowest ever, except for Trump.

What contributed most to Sanders’ primary win in Indiana was his dominance with white voters (57 percent support) and men (59 percent support), who collectively made up 72 percent and 42 percent of voters, respectively, according to NBC News. Sanders also excelled among poor and lower-middle class voters, winning the majority of voters who made less than $30,000 in 2015, and between $30,000 and $50,000. Sen. Sanders won the support of a whopping 72 percent of independents, 54 percent of voters who said free trade had a negative effect on jobs, and 60 percent of voters who said they were “very worried” about the future of the U.S. economy.

The Evidence That Makes The ‘Bernie Bro’ Smear Look All The Worse - New Matilda
To summarise, the evidence shows that Sanders fans are not particularly sexist, abusive or aggressive. Indeed, they appear to be about half as aggressive as Clinton supporters, according to women in the US.

The only quantitative study I am aware of was written about in the Washington Post. It found that of over 100,000 tweets analysed, only about 54 including gendered slurs directed at Clinton came from male supporters of Sanders. That is, it seems the Bernie Bro, far from being a common phenomenon, is rather rare. There has never been anything beyond vague, and often unreliable anecdotal evidence, suggesting there is something distinctively sexist and abusive about supporters of Sanders.

Section 4: Views of the Nation | Pew Research Center
I should note that my positive comments about Millennials are supported by objective polling data. [1]

Remember that popular 'Newsroom' rant by Jeff Daniels, where he explains why America is no longer the greatest country? [2] It starts with the accusation that Millennials are “the worst. Period. Generation. Period. Ever. Period.”

There's just one small problem with that: everything. Every accusation in the rant that is leveled against Millennials is actually more true of Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation [3] and *least* true of Millennials.

Who thinks “America is the Greatest nation on Earth”? 65% of the Silent Generation, 50% of Boomers, that’s who. Only 32% of Millennials agree with that sentiment.

It is the Baby Boomers who are the most xenophobic, the most opposed to gender equality, the most ideologically conservative, and the most hostile to government and its services (except for those services they rely on, like Medicare and Social Security!!). Unbelievably and hypocritically, Boomers care the *least* about universal healthcare of any generation, including the Silent Generation!

There’s a reason Baby Boomers are often called the “Me” generation." Greed, selfishness, and a lack of civic responsibility are a major part of that generation's stereotype.

Aaron Sorkin (Baby Boomer and creator of Newsroom) is projecting the many faults of his generation onto a generation that is arguably the most decent in America’s history.

By the numbers, Millennials are the most liberal, most diverse, most educated, most tolerant, and least religious generation in our nation's history. They’re also the least likely to buy into the blind patriotism of 'American exceptionalism.'

By contrast, Boomers rate themselves as the most patriotic of any generation. Do you know what makes American “the greatest” according to Booomers? The same vacuous answer that Sorkin ridicules in his rant: “Freedom.”

The Greatest Generation handed their Boomer children all the hard-won fruits and institutions of the New Deal and Great Society. The Baby Boomers, the “Me” Generation, shamelessly and greedily dismantled these institutions for their own gain with an almost sociopathic disregard for the horrific consequences to subsequent generations, e.g. massive increases in wealth inequality, child poverty, homelessness, an explosion of the prison populations, the militarization of the police, etc.

Boomers are also most responsible for dismantling, or at least woefully neglecting, the foundations of our once great middle class, e.g. inexpensive public universities, unions, infrastructure, and a living wage.

Now, none of this is meant to demonize individual Baby Boomers. Every generation has its collective strengths and weaknesses (e.g. Boomers were more progressive than preceding generations), and what may be said for a collective group, on average, doesn't necessarily apply to every individual within it.

Rather, this was just to note that if you're going to judge a generation by Sorkin’s criteria, it’s not the Millennials but rather the Baby Boomers who come out looking like “the worst. Period. Generation. Period. Ever. Period.”

[1] Pew Research: The Generation Gap and the 2012 Election:

[2] Newsroom rant - America is not the greatest country anymore.

[3] The “Silent Generation” was born between the Great Depression and 1942. What can be said of the Boomers generally holds true for the "Silent Generation" (and usually more so). However because the size and influence of the Boomers swamps them, there usually isn’t much to be gained in distinguishing the two.

Daily chart: How unpopular are Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? | The Economist
The protracted primaries, and concurrent party sniping, hasn’t helped. Candidates often become more popular once it is clear that they have secured the nomination, as happened with John Kerry in 2004, and their image changes from contender to victor. This is not always the case, however. Mitt Romney was viewed unfavourably throughout most of his run in 2012, getting only a small boost once he won the Republican nomination. In September that year, two months before the election, he still had a negative favourability rating in Gallup polling, the only presidential candidate from either party to gain that distinction at that stage of campaigning since at least 1988. This year will be different by having not one but two unpopular candidates. Just a third of Americans have a favourable view of Donald Trump. Mrs Clinton does little better at 40%, but she might take heart from her husband’s campaign. Bill Clinton had a negative favourability rating throughout the spring and early summer on 1992, but it jumped from 41% to 62% when the Democratic National Convention got under way. She will be looking for a similar fillip, Bernie Sanders permitting, at Philadelphia in July.

2 political scientists have found the secret to partisanship, and it’s deeply depressing - Vox
"Regardless of the strength of their attachment to their own party, the more voters dislike the opposing party, the greater the probability that they will vote consistently for their own party’s candidates."

It's worth saying that a bit more clearly: you're more likely to vote Democratic if you hate Republicans than if you love Democrats, and vice versa. What parties need to do to keep you loyal isn't make you inspired. Rather, they need to make you scared.

More Democrats Are Feeling The Bern, Probably | FiveThirtyEight
We’re not big fans of national polls here at FiveThirtyEight. In the general election, they provide less information than state polls do, especially given that the presidency is determined by the Electoral College. But at least in the general election, everybody votes on the same day.1 Not so in the primaries, where the states vote sequentially. Furthermore, the rules vary substantially from state to state; in particular, some hold primaries and others have caucuses, which generally have much lower turnout. That makes it difficult to determine what a “likely voter” is in the context of a national poll.

To that you can add the two most common answers: Socialist 12% and older, aged 6%. Presumably those are mostly negative too, but it's not clear how negative they are, e.g. the term "socialism" is regarded more favorably among millennials than "capitalism."

The Big Winner of the 2016 Race: Democratic Socialism | New Republic
Part of Sanders’s success campaigning under the socialist banner likely arises from the base he has managed to reach: namely younger, further-left, and lower-income voters. Exit polls from Monday night’s Iowa caucuses found that Sanders won 84 percent of voters between the ages of 17 and 29, 58 percent of voters who identified as “very liberal,” and 57 percent of those making under $30,000 per year. Sanders pulled in half of those making between $30,000 and $49,000 per year, losing his lead over Clinton only as the income bracket shifted upward: Clinton took 55 percent of the $100,000 and over category, with Sanders trailing at 37 percent.

Muslims also tend to believe sharia has only one, true understanding, but this opinion is far from universal; in some countries, substantial minorities of Muslims believe sharia should be open to multiple interpretations.
