Recently turned 18, excited to support Bernie in 2020, but I have some questions

One is very much related to being newly able to vote, and another is a completely different subject.

1.) What steps do I need to take in order to be able to vote in the primaries and GE? Do I need to be a registered Democrat to vote for Bernie in the Ohio primary?

2.) I recently read about Vermont's "failed" medicare for all program. Contrary to what some think, it was never actually implemented. However, studies supposedly showed it's cost was as much as the entire Vermont state budget. They said they didn't feel comfortable implementing an 11.5% payroll tax on small businesses, and I read somewhere that taxes would've spiked by 160%? What's the truth behind all this? What's the reality of it?

Bernie’s town hall on fox swayed my conservative father

my dad watches fox news almost exclusively for his source of news and voted for Trump. He's a Massachusetts Republican so tbf he's basically a Democrat anywhere south of the Mason Dizon line lol. Anyway, I sent him his town hall video on YouTube and got him to at least hear him out. The higher taxes didn't wow him or anything but once he started on healthcare and after he was super impressed. Especially when he has problems with insurance costs, costs for treatment, and even was forced to change doctors because his company switched insurances. He can't even use the hospital in the city we live in because his insurance doesn't cover it, he has to go to Rhode island for the next nearest hospital. So Bernie hitting all those points on a platform that my dad may have never even given a chance if this was on CNN or whatever. I don't think he's going to fully switch parties but so far if it came down to Bernie vs Trump right now he's in favor of Bernie. And definitely in favor of Medicare for all. Fucking killing it out there Bernie!

What separates the “progressive” side of the 2020 Democratic candidates?

I'm trying to become more informed for the election in 2020, as I have fallen behind in my knowledge about the candidates. I was a huge Bernie supporter in the 2016 election, but honestly, it was easier to keep up them with only 2 candidates and one being a moderate and the other being progressive. However, this year there are a bunch of candidates that seem very progressive, and I'm trying to become more informed before deciding who to support. Obviously, I'm inclined towards Bernie, but I feel that Beto, Booker, and Pete have solid ideas on policy. So, my question is, what separates Bernie from the "progressive" field?

Ann Coulter says she’d consider vote for Bernie Sanders

“If he went back to his original position, which is the pro-blue-collar position. I mean, it totally makes sense with him," she said. If he went back to that position, I’d vote for him. I might work for him. I don’t care about the rest of the socialist stuff. Just– can we do something for ordinary Americans?”

I feel like endorsement from Coulter could hurt Bernie in the primaries, and help him in the general.
