Sanders has continued to poll favorably among Americans since the 2016 election

Sanders, 77, running as a Democrat again, believes he can prevail in a crowded and diverse field that includes several female and minority candidates, and then beat Donald Trump, whom he called on Tuesday "the most unsafe president in modern American history".
Indeed, Sanders enters, or re-enters, a very crowded field of Democratic Party nomination seekers, including his close friend and ally Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard, the Congresswoman from Hawaii who is a die-hard Bernie supporter. That's far different from 2016, when he was Clinton's lone progressive adversary.
Still, there is no question that Sanders will be a formidable contender for the Democratic nomination. He opens his campaign with a nationwide organization and a proven small-dollar fundraising effort.
As Sanders wins points with voters for his unyielding conviction and message clarity, pieces of his agenda could unnerve primary voters who are particularly focused on finding a winning candidate to put up against Trump.
He said he was going to launch "what I think is unprecedented in modern American history": a grassroots movement "to lay the groundwork for transforming the economic and political life of this country".
"I think the current occupant of the White House is an embarrassment to our country", Sanders declared, calling Trump a "pathological liar", a "racist, a sexist, a homophobe", and a "xenophobe". "All of these ideas and many more are now part of the political mainstream".
His campaign reported that Sanders raised more than 1.2 million USA dollars from 42,000 donors in all 50 states in the first four hours after he announced his run on Tuesday morning.
And he referred to Sanders as "Crazy Bernie" during the 2016 presidential race. But he won't have the state to himself.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, highlighted policies he will advocate on the campaign trail: healthcare for all, raising the minimum wage to a "living wage", and combatting climate change.
