Interesting analysis. I disagree though. I think people are tired of centrist proposals or more often Republican-lite proposals. They hunger for boldness. And the thing they want more than that is authenticity, which Bernie has both. Most of the other Democrats are coming around to these proposals rather recently.

Also Bernie isn’t really that crazy though. My most metrics of leftist proposals, he’s really quite tame and popular. People underestimate that a lot.
