Most Americans don’t want prisoners to vote. It was a crackpot idea from the king of the crackpots. The Democrats are looking for unique ways to pad the voter rolls.

Bernie won’t change his tune so let’s see how fast the other Democratic nominees now oppose this idea. They just go with whatever direction the wind is blowing.

Maybe Bernie and AOC can move to Venezuela so they can run on their Democratic Socialist ideas?
