Andrew Cuomo, Jay Inslee, John Bel Edwards, and Gavin Newsome would be startled to hear of that.  Which members of the party are you speaking of ?  Well, at least the members of both parties agreed on the "Rescue Bill".

This assertion about the identity and motives of nonvoters is critical not only to try to bully and coerce people into voting by associating nonvoting with rich, white privilege, but also to suppress any recognition of how widespread the dissatisfaction is for both parties and the political system generally among poor and non-white citizens.

But the problem with this claim is a rather significant one: it is based on the outright, demonstrable falsehood that those who choose not to vote are primarily rich, white and thus privileged, while those who lack those privileges — voters of color and poorer voters — are unwilling to abstain. This is something one can believe only if one’s views of the country and its electorate are shaped by social media and cable news bubbles.

The truth is exactly the opposite. Those who choose not to vote because of dissatisfaction with the choices offered are disproportionately poorer and non-white, while rich whites vote in far larger percentages. And the data also makes clear that the primary motive for nonvoting among those demographic groups is not voter suppression but a belief that election outcomes do not matter because both parties are corrupt or interested only in the lives of the wealthy.

From E.J. Dionne column in Washington Post regarding the lasting impact of Bernie’s campaigns:

Accepting defeat might make Sanders grumpy, but he can move forward with pride — and that is what he seemed to do when he signaled a de-escalation of the campaign Wednesday. He acknowledged he was “losing” but said his forces had “won the ideological debate.”

He was onto something. He has fundamentally altered the nature of the conversation in the Democratic Party. Together, he and Elizabeth Warren have moved even the most moderate Democrats to the left. His proposals for Medicare-for-all, free college and bold action on climate change, and his warnings about the dangers of concentrated corporate power, set the terms of this year’s debate. Candidates were judged by how close or far they were from his core objectives. That’s a big deal.

Moreover, Sanders’s movement is now a permanent force in the Democratic Party, much like organized labor was in the old days, or the religious right is now in the GOP. Democrats will not be able to ignore the left wing that Sanders has brought to life. He made democratic socialism a popular idea among young Americans. Unlike their elders, they associate socialism not with the Soviet Union but with a decent, democratic society that pays attention to the needs of the powerless, the marginalized and the working class. A 2018 survey showed that 58 percent of adults under 30 identified socialism as a system that “provides citizens with health insurance, retirement support, and access to free higher education”; only 38 percent saw it as government control of “key parts of the economy, such as utilities, transportation and communications industries.”



I agree. It is a big deal. Bernie has made a difference.
