115. Roughly 77% of Sanders' voters did not vote for

the candidate with the most progressive plans to advance this nation since the New Deal. This is very pertinent to 2020, of course, because he's running on the same messages and attempting to draw the same people.

12% specifically voted for the party that promised to roll back the New Deal and civil rights to the 19th century, i.e., the Republican Party, whose attitude toward science and climate change, of course, is more Dark-Ages, pre- Age of Reason.




None of this has a thing to do with the DNC. Their failure to vote for progressive ideals is squarely on those voters. Interestingly, those self-claimed progressives who voted against the one candidate who could protect and advance progressive government -- our Democratic candidate -- did so in large percentages. Only about 2-3% refused to vote at all.

Climate change is an urgent threat and a defining challenge of our time. It threatens our economy, our national security, and our children’s health and futures. We can tackle it by making America the world’s clean energy superpower and creating millions of good-paying jobs, taking bold steps to slash carbon pollution at home and around the world, and ensuring no Americans are left out or left behind as we rapidly build a clean energy economy. ~ HRC 2016
