Response to Kentonio (Reply #61)

62. Think what you like

Raising worker pay does not:

Keep from moving jobs overseas.
Take immigration off the table as a key issue.
Do anything about climate change.
Keep police from disproportionately targeting minorities for search, arrest and indiscriminate killing.
Keep the flow of illegal drugs into the country.
Close Guantanamo.
Provide infrastructure that allows us to be more competitive.

I can list a hundred others. Income inequality can be a lead, but it's not nearly as dominating as the Sanders crew makes it out to be. That's why the poll numbers suck.

I won't comment further on your need to "balance" the vitriol. You are entitled to your own reality.

I've also heard the name recognition meme tons here on DU and elsewhere. There have been multiple debates, he's going nowhere in minority communities...no matter how much anyone wishes it were so.

As far as what states he'll win, I'd be surprised if he won a single state with the message currently being projected....and I'm NOT saying I won't vote for him. The messaging is so damned inept it's really hard to believe they could screw it up this bad. People want to vote for a vision, not a one-dimensional view of who their "enemy" is.
