Common anti-Bernie arguments and their counters:

"BernieBros are white and male / Black Americans don't support him"

– Sanders favorability among whites +/-: 49/46 (net +3)

– Sanders favorability among non-whites: 64/21 (net +43)

Available polling has had Bernie with a higher net fav. rating among women than men

"Bernie is not a Democrat. (Dems don't want him.)"

– Bernie has consistently had a higher favorability than Clinton among Dems since 2016. Virtually no-one in the party thinks him being an Independent is a detriment.

Bonus: "Bernie has gotten nothing done in his time in Congress."

Dunno why Gallup refuses to give a proper PDF of poll results, instead of scattering crumbs over a dozen articles. If anyone knows how to get full results, please let me know.
