Actually he's already shown that he's willing to listen to progressives, even Bernie. He's running on the most leftist platform in American history.

Biden is not running the most leftist platform in history. Gravel was running a much more progressive platform for example.

The American people I think are slowly becoming more left and might be the most left in history, but I’m not sure.

Biden is running on the standard status quo ticket. That’s called conservatism. .

Eugene Debs ran as an explicit socialist, while still incarcerated, and won more votes as a percentage of the electorate than third parties USA do these days. Millions, if you count all 5 times he ran.
