Former Bernard Sanders campaign co-chair Nina Turner gave a colorful analogy for how unexcited she is about voting in November.

In a piece for The Atlantic titled, “Don’t Count Trump Out,” Ms. Turner gave a glimpse into her personal struggle in choosing between President Trump and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden.

“It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of s—t in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still s—t,” the former Ohio state senator said.

The Atlantic article argues that Mr. Biden, who symbolizes “a brand of establishment centrism,” could have an uphill climb in November if he fails to pick up the younger and more radical voters who would have otherwise gone for Mr. Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont.

Cornel West, a Harvard University professor and Sanders supporter, told the outlet: “We have to be true to ourselves and acknowledge that Biden is a mediocre, milquetoast, neoliberal centrist that we’ve been fighting against in the Democratic establishment.”
