"far left extremists" or elected officials, that's the whole problem with the establishment democrats. Don't expect Biden to be supported over Sanders this time.
Bernie Bros are going to be left sucking wind again. The center left will hold the Democratic party or we will get another result like 1972 or 1984.

Rasmussen was the most accurate pollster in ‘16. If you base the other polling data sources based on the last election, this would mean Trump's approval rating is actually at 70%.
Wrong...again


The pollsters that were closest to the final result included McClatchy/Marist and IBD/TIPP. But others were also close — including the ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll. (Note: Although you are reading this on The Washington Post’s website, neither Panagopoulos nor I had any involvement in The Post’s tracking poll.)

Given the sample sizes and underlying margins of error in these polls, most of these polls were not that far from the actual result. In only two cases, reports Panagopoulos, was any bias in the poll statistically significant. The Los Angeles Times/USC poll, which had Trump with a national lead throughout the campaign, and the NBC News/Survey Monkey poll, which overestimated Clinton’s share of the vote.

Rasmussen didn't even make it into the top 10.

Anyway, if the polls were so right, why did the media get it all wrong?

Every other Poll said he LOST in 2016.
From what I remember most polls had a 3 or 4 percent margin of error, and they had Hillary leading by just 2 or 3 points. Within the margin of error. She was by no means a shoo in. Technically he did lose. Hillary did get nearly 3 million more votes. They just weren't in the right states. One study found a mere 80,000 votes in a hand full of counties would have swayed the election. However, in those same counties there were some 200,000 votes for third party candidates. Hillary was a terrible candidate. A lot of dems, angered by the DNCs treatment of Bernie, stayed home, and a lot voted for third party candidates. I firmly believe had ANYBODY other than Hillary been the dems candidate, they'd be sitting in the white house and Trump would probably still be whining about losing the "rigged election".
