(NewsReady.com) – Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is the embodiment of everything Progressives hate. He’s spent more than 40 years in office and is what they call a “corporate shill.” The former vice president knew when he clinched the party’s nomination that he was going to have a hard time winning the far-Left over.
That’s why he teamed up with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT). But now, cracks are beginning to form in this partnership.
According to a report by Fox News, hundreds of Bernie Sanders’ delegates are pledging to vote against the Democratic Party’s platform at the convention if leadership doesn’t include Medicare for All. The senator’s representatives in Nevada started an online petition objecting to the current Liberal policies.
Scoop: More than 360 Democratic delegates, most of whom back Bernie Sanders, have signed on to a pledge to vote against the Democratic Party’s platform if it does not include support for "Medicare for All," say the petition’s organizers. https://t.co/wIyZP4tuP3

Why does this matter?
The 2020 election will likely be decided on razor-thin margins like in 2016. Biden cannot afford to lose a single vote in November if he’s to stand a chance against President Donald Trump. The commander-in-chief’s party loves him and Republican National Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has said enthusiasm for him is very high.
If Progressive voters started walking away, it would put Trump in a really good position for the November election.
