Can Sanders beat Trump? A growing number of Democratic voters say yes

Recommended Posts

Bloomberg is an image of what is bad in the white house now. US is not ready for Buttigieg to kiss his partner or other shows of affection.

Sanders is getting torn down by his own people yet he seems to be the person with the most considered positions on a number of important points. Whether or not people agree with those points is another thing. Sanders is also an ordinary communicator with poor body language. But that has not stopped people being elected president in the past.

Biden does not seem to offer anything in the way of well considered policy and will have a stigma from the smear campaign placed on him by the impeached president.

 

Will another candidate come out of the woodwork or is it already too late for someone to enter and resonate with the people and the party?

Crazy Bernie has ZERO chance of beating Trump. ZERO!!

 

He has a better chance of beating the other dems however. That is what is making the dems squirm. They really don't have a better solution. Bernie takes punches better for being a commie than Bloomberg does for being a NYC elite, billionaire that reeks of arrogance like Bloomberg.

 

Bloomberg doesn't come off strong and has his gaffs like Biden. He admitted he bought the house elections. His voice doesn't help. He sounds like Curly from the Three Stooges at times. 

 

I think Warren might be angling for Bernie and a VP nod. She really lays into Bloomberg. I don't think any candidate is sure enough of Bloomberg to drop out because he is a shoe in. The more you get to know hi the better Bernie looks.

That's the whole point. Bernie wants to do away with "all" private Insurance. I have Blue Cross/BS and was able to keep it after I retired a few months back. Bernie is taking it to a whole new level.

I am betting that what would pass in Congress, if the citizen vote overwhelmingly supports, is a "safety net" Medicare for All coverage. Additional insurance will continue, same as in countries already having national healthcare.

Wondering how it will work for civilians working overseas not being able to have their own health Ins, or retired military on Tri-Care. Will be a mess if Bernie does pull it off.

Would it not be true that revised policies would be put in place to ensure these folks are taken care off?

Looking from outside it seems that Republicans will be doing all they can to assist Sanders' prospects of gaining the Democratic nomination. 

Absolutely disastrous, except for those people who want another 4 years of chaos. 

Yes, exactly. 

The republicans and Putin.

This is all kind of silly at this point.

Sanders may indeed get nominated.

Much much much less likely, he may beat 45.

But chances of actually passing "Medicare for All" through congress -- ZERO percent. 

That's why this is all so stupid.

Taking the biggest possible risk in choosing a self labelled "socialist" nominee to run against an actual American anti-rule of law, authoritarian white nationalist president for a fantasy policy that will absolutely never happen. 

Much better to pick a candidate that has wide appeal to independents and push for realistic changes such as a public option. People -- the USA is a center right nation. Don't be fooled by the minority of the most left wing activists from only the democratic party. I don't feel foreigners realize the proportions, democrats are mostly NOT far left, republicans are mostly far right, and independents (which have HUGE numbers) are center right. Bernie can't realistically win in a  nation with that kind of demographic. The USA is not western Europe. That's just the reality.

Put all this speculation on hold for another week until super Tuesday is completed. There's clearly not enough info at the moment to have an intelligent conversation. Clearly only mental masturbation is all that is going on now.
