Sorry for the long post, but the Dornsife/LA Times poll was the only major poll to correctly pick Trump to beat Hillary in 2016 and they also predicted that it would be an EC win since CA and NY would overwhelmingly vote for Hillary.

Even for those of you who don't read the actual article, I strongly suggest you do so since there is some excellent analysis in there.

Dems: Biden, Warren similar ideology, Sanders more extreme

Extreme my ass, what a crock of ----.

Sanders' status as the outlier could limit his ability to expand his support and another problem for Sanders is engagement: Sanders does best among people who did not watch or listen to the last debate, the only candidate for whom that's true.

Bernie went did a Fox News Townhall in West FREAKING Virginia and got applaus after applaus for his answers on socialism, healthcare, etc., so right there Bernie is expanding his support with the Fox News demographic and in Republican West Virginia.

Second, any talk about people not hearing Bernie's message per the last debate must go thru the POV of the prestige media establishment that's determined to muddy Bernie's message or smear him outright.

Per the article ...

Support for and opposition to Medicare for all divides deeply along partisan lines, while the Medicare option does not, noted Jill Darling, the survey's director.

But if the Medicare option becomes a general election issue, views could polarize, and many of those currently on the fence could shift against it, she said.


Medicare-for-all has bipartisan support ...

70 percent of Americans support 'Medicare for all' proposal

Seventy percent said they supported providing "Medicare for all," also known as single-payer health care, for Americans, according to a new American Barometer survey.

The results mirrored aReuters-Ipsos pollreleased in August, which also found that 70 percent of Americans supported "Medicare for all."

The American Barometer was conductedOct. 19-20 among 1,000 registered voters. The sampling margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.

Yeah, I sure that there are zero democrats in WV, and only Republicans attended a Bernie town hall.

Not.

Bernie's politics (healthcare, college, clean water, infrastructure, etc.) should easily be mainstream as they are in Europe.

And in any other healthy political environment EVERY Democrat should be like Bernie, and THEN there should be people to Bernie's left advocating things like worker co-opts and actual socialism ...

But in only in capitalist-nightmare-America are the universally accepted politics that Bernie advocates for are smeared as "extreme".

Bernie wants to raise tax rates to 70%, but that's still well under Eisenhower's 91%.

Bernie isn't nearly the socialist Eisenhower was ... youtu.be

The corporate media hates Bernie and smears him every chance they get.

I'm sure you're right.

Glad that you now see things my way, good to have you on board.

When me and Bernie take over, I'll be sure to save you a spot in the new administration -- how's does an ambassadorship to McMurdo Bay sound?

LOL, I don't give a shht tbh, I won't be voting for Trump and whoever the Dem nominee is will take CA by over 4M votes.

You, on the other hand, will stroke out when Bernie doesn't get the nomination, again.

Nope -- if the DNC screws Bernie, I'll take solace that the issues Bernie advocates for ain't going away ... what's happening in America is bigger than Bernie.

Credit is where it's due. In the context of the back-and-forth that was pretty good.

Bernie isn't extreme enough for me... I want a crunchy hippy with dread locks and smelling of Sativa... he or she could slash our bloated military budget by only using our forces to protect our borders...
Tax the rich..
End all corporate welfare..
End the war on drugs..
Reunite with all our allies that Trump alienated..
I want Bernie Sanders on acid
