The Most Popular Political Figure In the USA

Bernie Sanders

It is not Donald Trump. His polls are tanking in the 30 percent range.

Yes, Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is the most popular political figure in the country, at 61 percent. He can boast a +28 net favorability rating, dwarfing all other elected politicians on both ends of the political spectrum.

Sanders’ effect on Trump voters can be seen in a gripping town hall this week that MSNBC’s Chris Hayes hosted with him in West Virginia – often referred to as “Trump country” – where the crowd ended up giving him a rousing ovation after he talked about healthcare being a right of all people and that we are the only industrialized nation in the world who doesn’t provide healthcare as a right to all its people.

Best of all, Bernie has inspired a wave of progressive candidates that could re-make the Democratic Party into the party of the people in just a few years.
