That 15% sounds about right, which would mean just about half of the Democratic Party are progressives. I've read the progressive wing of the democratic party in congress makes up a bit over 100 of the 222 representatives.

You have this from Gallup.


Gallup only breaks it down to liberal, but if you have liberal and very liberal, 15% sounds good to me to be very liberal or progressives.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
