Biden faces hard lift in winning over hard left

Some on the left remain uneasy with former Vice President Joe Biden, even as progressive luminaries rally behind the presumptive Democratic nominee ahead of his general election battle with President Trump.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has vowed to do everything he can to elect Biden after the progressive senator dropped out of the 2020 race last month, and former Sanders campaign officials have launched new groups with the aim of defeating Trump in November.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) has said she’d be happy to join the ticket, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) says she will support Biden in the fall.

But some other progressives remain skeptical and say the former vice president has a lot more work to do to ensure the left turns out for him in November.
