(NewsReady.com) – Joe Biden might have won the Democratic presidential nomination by default, but he’s a long way from being a unity candidate for the Left. Many of Senator Bernie Sanders’ supporters are signaling they won’t support him. In fact, a large progressive group just announced that very thing.
On April 12, The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) said they wouldn’t be backing Biden in November.
We are not endorsing @JoeBiden.
— DSA 🌹 (@DemSocialists) April 12, 2020
To put this in perspective, the DSA has around 56,000 members — many of them younger voters who joined because of the organization’s support for Sanders. Two members of the notorious “Squad,” Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), are members of the far-Left organization.
While the DSA’s failure to endorse Biden won’t trouble mainstream Democrats much, it could cost him a lot of support among younger voters. This demographic is the most likely to vote for a far-Left candidate. The rift in the party might make it much easier for President Donald Trump to win reelection in November.
