Skip to comments.Brokaw on Sanders’ 2020 Chances: ‘Really Hard to See’ How People Will Say ‘I’m for Socialism’

During the roundtable discussion segment of NBCs Meet the Press, former Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw admitted his skepticism of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) chances at the presidency, especially with the success of the economy.
Brokaw said he did not see how anyone would say they were for socialism, given the nations current economic position.
I think, Chuck, that frankly among younger voters thats a possibility for him. But with a strong economy, its really hard to see how a lot of people will step up and say, Im for socialism."

IMO, Sanders really represents the heart and base of the Dem Party. All other Democrats are simply dressed up in varying degrees of camouflage.
"What are the rest of us candidates, chopped liver? ALL of us support socialism, which single party state rule with no accountability for us in the ruling class!"
Right. Sanders is the leading edge. In four years “moderate” democrats will be espousing the same or even more Marxian. Bernie is a little more honest than the others.
The dims are total communist. He is their guy. The stat on caucus goers on foxnews reads right out of the manefesto.
they are plenty of woke younger people that are supporting this clown.
I think older Americans who have been around the block might not be as supportive.
Let’s not forget, you can vote your way into socialism but you have to shoot your way out of it.
All of them WANT Socialism....they just don’t like being CALLED Socialists
Bolshevik Bernie isn’t a socialist. He’s a full-throated communist.
If Bernie is I why is he running in the D caucus?
CPUSA turn him down?
I’m hearing the same thing. Top Dems are worried that a Sanders nomination re-elects Trump. They are running out of time. They should consult Nan and Schifty how to come up with rules to rig an outcome.
Democrat Party faced Communist infiltration in 1968. The so called New Democrats.
More Dems than just the commie/socialists are trending to Bernie and Warren. Some Democrats have also realized there is a Deep State that works only for Deep State members, at the expense of the citizenry.
Bernie and Trump aren’t members of the DS, and people sense that and gravitate.
POST OF THE THREAD!!
LOL! Well said. And that's why the progs are so determined to take away guns from law abiding citizens.
Lol! The Chopped Liver Candidates.
But most times you’re just shat out the other end when everything of value has been sucked out.
Somehow, democrats like Brokaw reason, their useful idiots were never going to catch on and want their cut of whatever the government can extort out of working people.
What kind of idiot do you have to be to do the BS of beating the drum for an "end to the smokestack era" when Clinton was president and think that there won't consequently be one Hell of a lot more people who want paid off after industry that employed millions shut down and moved offshore?
What Brokenjaw really intended was...er, “Destroy Sanders anyway you can, even if you have to make up just plain ‘ol complete bull****”
