Realism about Bernie Sanders

Good discussion about how Mr. Sanders would have done in a general election.

 

White people as a new reliable minority voting block is an interesting observation.

Some good thoughts on both sides, with the elephant in the room being the opposition folders on Bernie of a couple of thousand pages.

 

A guy that was on welfare for much of his life becoming POTUS and ushering in welfare for all 24-7....probably not a very good sell outside of young kids wet behind the ears.

Re: Realism about Bernie Sanders

I`m sure the Nox types will lament the "toooo bad Bernie didn`t run, he`da won in a landslide!".  I don`t think so, being a old Jewish guy he looks like the Black`s landlord, and to the successful "left leaners" they would secretly scared of his tax rates, Bernie would`ve gotten less votes than Hillary.  

 

Those so batpoop crazy hating Trump, watching SNL and Stephen Colbert, those jackasses already voted for Hillary and would vote a straight Dem ticket regardless.  This is the Dem problem, I don`t see their craziness winning any new voters, sure they make each other crazier but they`re still each only "one vote".   If anything their bizzarro behavior will chase away they few moderately sensible Dems that are left in the party.

If you want to see how progressive policies work look to any large city in America.
