Don't Buy into Corporate Polls
We all should remember how way off polls can be even the day before a primary. Take Michigan for example, which Bernie won:
The polls vary widely, even ridiculously so, this time around and simply don't have any grip on independent voters, now probably more than 42% of the electorate, who can vote in some primaries but not in others. And Bernie's appeal among independent voters is well established.

Medicare for all is the real pivot issue - you compromise on that - you’ve given the game away -
What candidate do you know won’t back down ?

Bernie Rises Above. . . : 2020 Presidential Black Power Rankings, Week 13 from THE ROOT October 11 (excerpted)
#1: Sen. Bernie Sanders
His daughter-in-law died, he had a heart attack and was back at work on Monday. That’s black AF. If there’s any community that knows what it’s like to go through an unspeakable tragedy and have to pick yourself back up and grind because you can’t afford to miss one day of work (or the campaign trail) it’s black folks, and for this week at least, Bernie is one of us. Sanders used his heart attack as a springboard to talk about his “Medicare for all” plan and was a living example of why it mattered.
Hey Liz, is it that difficult to stand up against the military industrial complex?
I cannot fathom thinking a woman who voted for a mega military expanse is progressive & she dodged the question.
This irks me... according to Liz let’s keep throwing money at these wars. pic.twitter.com/LVVlDKFq8b
