Easy: Americans overwhelmingly support either pure socialism, or at least the next best thing -- Swedish-style social democracy.
Which brings us back to Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton and the generally leftward-swing that's sweeping the entire Democratic Party.
Say what you want about the feasibility of "democratic socialism," but the argument that it's somehow out of step with what the American people want is just flat-out wrong. Americans do want socialism, even if they've been bludgeoned by decades of Cold War era propaganda into believing that it's an affront to our democracy.
The Republican attacks against progressive ideals will likely continue and will get even harsher as we move into the general election, but as progressives convincingly make their case to the American people that democratic socialism is the way to go, those Republican attacks will fall on deaf ears.
A specter is haunting the US: the specter of the death of the middle class, and Americans increasingly believe that European-style democratic Socialism is the cure. And genuinely progressive candidates across the US -- who did really well in the past few election cycles -- are poised to do better than ever.
