Forget pushing Hillary to the left, we need to push Liz

Progressives, if we are going to prevail we need to close ranks. Forget trying to push Hillary to the left, it's more important for us to build a united front.

We need Liz and the PCC to get behind Bernie. You can be sure they're under intense pressure to endorse Clinton. They need to hear from us.

I think most everyone I know is doing the same +Robert Nugent It would be bomb to elect Bernie, but at the very least if we keep the GOP out of the White House, it's a victory

Got money to Bern?

Wanna make political campaign contributions that become Washington's worst nightmare? 

Every dollar sent to Bernie instantly becomes a problem for Republicans AND Democrats!
 
Bucks For Bernie: Ask 10 people to donate $1 online to Bernie  http://berniesanders.com/

We get it. Times are tough, I'm there too. But one single dollar for +Bernie Sanders is a great way to get people that want to get more involved invested in the campaign. Studies have shown that any amount donated makes someone feel like they have a personal stake in a movement, and everyone can afford a single dollar. The key is to get them to actually go to the website and donate that dollar. Then the rest just falls into place.

Bernie is beating Hillary on trust by over 20 points in HH and Iowa
More than half of the people in the polls hadn't heard of Sanders yet, and had no opinion.

Bernie has lots of room to grow as more people get to know him. Hillary is so well known that her favorability may have already peaked.

Hillary is behind Rubio and Walker for favorability - way behind them, by nearly 20 points. It's actually a three-way race at this point between Rubio, Sanders, and Walker.
 
Bernie Sanders is gaining steam. As more people have an opportunity to hear Bernie's message the more followers he gains. Bernie Sanders has a very strong, enthusiastic base of followers. Thanks to the great team effort of his grassroots network, Bernie's numbers continue to rise. We still have a lot of work to do yet. There are many who haven't heard Bernie's message. Lets redouble our efforts and draw more people to Bernie's camp. 
Sen. Bernie Sanders' momentum has continued to push him up in the polls just as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appears to be stalling out.
New Gallup poll numbers released this week show that the senator from Vermont's favorable rating in the U.S. "has doubled since Gallup's initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known." Meanwhile, Clinton's numbers have declined significantly since peaking at 66% just a few short years ago.
Sanders' rising familiarity is responsible for much of the increase, with about 44% of Americans knowing enough about him to declare a preference one way or the other, up from just 24% in March. But as Clinton has slid back into electoral politics, so too has she inevitably decreased in popularity, with her unfavorable rating (46%) outstripping her favorable rating (43%) for the first time since 2007.
Gallup's numbers additionally show that while Clinton remains a clear front runner among Democrats in the general population, a large segment of the U.S. population has unfavorable attitudes toward her, and only a few haven't made up their minds.
Clinton was inevitably bound to decline in favorable ratings among Americans as she re-entered electoral politics following her term as secretary of state, so the most recent poll findings probably don't reflect any specific liability such as the ongoing argument over her private email account. But Gallup's Lydia Saad writes that the poll indicates Clinton "remains the only Democratic candidate for president with a national name, and Clinton continues to stand head and shoulders above her next closest competitor — Sanders — in popularity for the presidential nomination."
Still, recent polling by Qunnipiac University illustrates that Clinton is facing some major image problems in the three swing states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, all of which currently have her losing against top Republican competitors.
For some Democrats, this uneasiness may make Sanders look like an attractive alternative to Clinton. But these people may get buyers' remorse if Sanders fails to build sufficient momentum among Democrats or make massive inroads to the general public, in which over half of Americans know so little about Sanders they declined to offer an opinion.

A call for #Solidarity  We Progressives must stand united

The Republicans want racial justice progressives to split off from economic justice progressives because that divides our power in half. We can't let them do that.

We have to stand united, or we lose. There will be no racial justice, there will be no economic justice.

How do we heal that which divides us as progressives so we can stand united for everyone's good?
 
An Important Message from Robert Reich: Why Progressives Must Stay United

A new report finds more U.S. children living in poverty than before the Great Recession. According to the report, released Tuesday from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 22 percent of American children are living in poverty (as of 2013, the latest data available) compared with 18 percent in 2008.

The number that represents 22 percent is approximately 15 million children living in poverty in the most wealthy country in the world. Let that sink in for a moment.

Now let this sink in: Poverty rates are nearly double among African-Americans and American Indians. Problems are most severe in South and Southwest. Particularly troubling is a large increase in the share of children living in poor communities marked by poor schools and a lack of a safe place to play.

Which brings me to politics, power, and the progressive movement.

The main event at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix, Arizona last weekend was a “Presidential Town Hall” featuring one-on-one discussions between journalist and undocumented American Jose Antonio Vargas and presidential candidates Governor Martin O’Malley and Senator Bernie Sanders.

It was upstaged by ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter activists who demanded to be heard.

Here's the point:
~ It’s impossible to overcome widening economic inequality in America without also dealing with the legacy of racial inequality.

~ And it is impossible to overcome racial inequality without also reversing widening economic inequality.

They are not the same but they are intimately related.

Racial inequalities are baked into our political and economic system. Police brutality against black men and women, mass incarceration disproportionately of blacks and Latinos, housing discrimination that has resulted in racial apartheid across the nation, and voter suppression in the forms of gerrymandered districts, voter identification requirements, purges of names from voter registration lists, and understaffed voting stations in black neighborhoods – all reveal deep structures of discrimination that undermine economic inequality.

Black lives matter.

But it would be a terrible mistake for the progressive movement to split into a “Black lives matter” movement and an “economic justice” movement.

*Why?*This would only play into the hands of the right.

For decades Republicans have exploited the economic frustrations of the white working and middle class to drive a wedge between races, channeling those frustrations into bigotry and resentment.

The Republican strategy has been to divide-and-conquer. They want to prevent the majority of Americans – poor, working class, and middle-class, blacks, Latinos, and whites – from uniting in common cause against the moneyed interests.

We must not let them.

Our only hope for genuine change is if poor, working class, middle class, black, Latino, and white come together in a powerful movement to take back our economy and democracy from the moneyed interests that now control both.
