France's Sanders surging in the polls
France's version of Sanders, Melenchon, now has 19% in the polls compared with the far right and center right candidates at 23%. He has an agenda very similar to Sanders but he has formed a new Party instead of choosing one of the others. He thinks that his people's agenda cannot be implemented within the current Party system and it must be changed. He's pushing for a Constitutional Convention to do so, changing the system to one of proportional representation. And he's within striking distance of the major candidates! This is what the Sanders movement also needs to do. See the article for the details.
