“Supporters of Sanders support him through his proposed political program. It’s very simple — our priority are: total available medical insurance, free higher education, end the wars, support the development of green economy, criminal justice reform. History of Biden-the policy indicates that none of these items will not be his priority. Wake up. He’s not our friend, ” wrote Kyle Kulinsky, popular political commentator and activist.
The media also talk about the efforts aimed at, to include provisions that support the supporters of Sanders, in the program of Joe Biden.
“With the retirement of Sanders, progressive groups are focusing efforts on how to force Biden to take on specific political commitments and, more importantly, to change attitudes towards a more liberal,” writes the publication the Intercept.

So, according to the survey among registered voters, former Vice-President of the United States received the support of 53% and the tramp — 42%.
Another poll gives Biden only 4% advantage over trump.
