21. Bernie had major support among independents in 2016.

 

I see no reason why his support from independent voters wouldn't be as strong in 2018.

From April 2016:

"Like Dean, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders aims to outflank his opponent from the left. But unlike Dean, Sanders does much better among independents than among Democrats. In New Hampshire, for instance, Sanders won Democrats by 4 percentage points while winning independents by nearly 50 percentage points, a split we’ve seen repeatedly since then."

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
