I really do fear that Bernie has seen what has worked for Trump- almost absolute and unquestioned loyalty by his supporters and is seeing it pay dividends for himself. Bernie was able to get away with attacking Clinton on legislation that he actually voted on. He’s allowed to have nuance but others aren’t. That’s what infuriates me about Bernie Sanders. Everyone else is a sell-out but him.

Blind adherence to dogma is not a hallmark of the Dems, they would not suffer a President Sanders well. If he won the presidency, it would be because the majority of the party supported him as the nominee, not because of his ideology or his beliefs. Which would become immediately evident the moment he actually started trying to enact policy and ran into skepticism within the party. Obama tried to pass fairly conservative legislation in the form of the ACA and ran into massive resistance within his own party from Blue Dogs, almost every one of which either lost reelection the following year for supporting “socialism” or scraped by by the skin of their teeth.

This is no real equivalent of the “Freedom Caucus” within the Dem ranks, you would never see the sort of fanaticism and blatant hypocrisy you see in Repubs under a Trump presidency.
