"Does a “left” Democrat – Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren – stand the
best chance of defeating Trump next year? They and their supporters argue
that such a candidate would enthuse a whole layer of people who normally
don’t vote, thereby winning the election. The mainstream Democrats say that
the swing voters – mainly middle class whites who often vote Republican but
swung to the Democrats in the 2018 election – would be turned off by such
calls as Medicare for all and would, therefore, tend to support Trump.

"What is the evidence for these two arguments? A lot can change between now
and the elections, but a recent NY Times article seems to shed some light
on the issue as of now."

How can a the working class start to exert its influence in society? These
and related issues are dealt with in this article.
