Elizabeth Warren is up in the polls lately. Where is her new support coming from? A look at the polls shows she is drawing from Biden's supporters and perhaps from undecided and lower-ranked candidates — but not Bernie Sanders's supporters.
The Nation is calling for a “truce” between Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. But they’re competing against each other in a primary, and a preemptive compromise does no service to either voters or their two different visions of change.
Bernie Sanders is the only choice on climate. He is getting it right because his plan is better, and his plan is better because of specific and substantial ideological differences with Elizabeth Warren.

Forget all the other Democratic candidates: the primary will come down to Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. If we want to beat Trump, we should stick with Bernie.

Despite breathless claims of a deepening political cold war, Democrats made gains this month in every Republican-leaning voting group.
We can avoid a barbarous future. But we'll have to massively redistribute wealth first.
Advocates for climate action should stop defending the rich.
Watch ThinkProgress try to link socialism to fascism, using casual dot-connecting and glib historical analysis.
Vox is wrong. Much of Trump's support is rooted in economic issues.
The overwhelming majority of black Americans have not voted for Hillary Clinton.
There's no evidence that anticommunism is driving opposition to Bernie Sanders. But that doesn't stop liberal media narratives.
If you believe that our "democratic system" is essentially sound, then you can only blame sexist outcomes on voters themselves.
