'Run, Bernie, Run'?: N.H. Progressives Divided By Another Bernie Sanders Bid

by Asma Khalid Jan. 30, 2019


In the summer of 2015, before Bernie Sanders had staff on the ground in New Hampshire, Elizabeth Ropp, a 42-year-old acupuncturist, was making homemade signs for the Vermont senator.

"Bernie inspired me because as somebody who's lived without health insurance for most of my adult life, I want there to be a single payer health care system," she said.

She was disappointed Sanders wasn't the nominee, and is convinced that if he had been, Donald Trump would not be president today.

"I want to see Bernie run again in 2020," said Ropp. "We need Bernie to run even if the field is crowded."

2. Bernie was never vetted. The gop would have ready all of

Bernie's positive musings about socialism, being anti-capitalism and support for communists (Cuba) and would have framed him as a full blown Communist. They would love to have bernie to run against.

5. Yes, he was never truly vetted and everyone handled him with kid gloves.

The republicans wanted him SOOO bad to be the nominee, they were holding a lot of damaging stuff on him that would have given Trump a mandate that would have emboldened him even further. Bernie needs to go away.

3. Voting for him in the 2016 primary is one of only two votes I've regretted in my life.

I'm sure I'm not the only NH voter who feels that way.
