New take on why Bernie Sanders will be President

A new poll in November says that 60% of the American public thinks Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy and dishonest. That's one hell of a majority going into the first primaries in a couple of months. The Inquisitr says, "Historically, Americans have never once elected a president found in reliable polls to be considered 'not honest and trustworthy.'” The Huffington Post said, “Mainstream pundits and public relations executives work tirelessly to make you believe Clinton is inevitability.” CNN says, "The nation’s leading Democratic PR firm will soon be owned by a private equity group run by a longtime Clinton insider.”

Here's a shocker from the Washington Blog, "Clinton is deemed less trustworthy than Donald Trump, which is a remarkably (sp) achievement." Another quote from the WB, "The real interesting part of the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll, is not the fact that 60% of Americans think Hillary Clinton is dishonest, but that 40% of Americans don’t." This only a few of the detracting remarks about Hillary but you can read more on the Washington Blog site.

And none of this comes from the Bernie Sanders campaign, which has professed they want to keep the race as clean as possible from dirty politics. And in all fairness, Hillary Clinton has strived to do the same. I would have voted for Hillary but Bernie Sanders came along this man's political philosophy, his consistent positions and record in general are too good to pass up. Vote for Bernie.

2. Amen to that

My exact feeling too.

I don't necessarily believe in polls since they can be skewed and molded in a particular manner, but I simply go with the belief that the millennials hold the key to this election season. And the word I've heard as a voter registrar is they want a change for their future. I'm keeping fingers and toes crossed they show up.

4. I don't find that stuff even mildly entertaining any more.

 

Not even clickable. And, IMO, anyone that easily disheartened likely would not have been an online Sanders fan in the first place.

The concentrated spates of those things are getting pretty funny, too.

9. The thing about the 2 day break we had

 

I jumped back on a bit into the fray..but I just thought how much nicer it has been not to read the I comments. I haven't wanted to wander in to the GDP..because I think some of the people I knew on the other side in the early summer are writing completely differently now.

I don't know if they are tired of the fight..scared or if it is even them. I am pretty good at "hearing" the voice of a poster. There is a certain cadence, certain word choices.

I don't know. I could just be tired and disappointed with them.

5. Some times, it's like an echo chamber

Just because DWS and the DNC are demanding her coronation, that does NOT mean the crown is hers! Yep, they swarm and repeat, repeat, repeat.

7. It seems so artificial

 

Very little sincerity and genuine enthusiasm. It can't be any fun -- just a will to win at any cost coupled with hostility.

One more reason I'm grateful to be a Bernie supporter!

6. Hillary is far less believable than Trump.

Wait wait, before you alert....

Trump is an asshole of the highest order, but I feel he believes all of the misogynistic, bigoted, hate speech he spews daily. I believe he would work hard towards a fascist society. He's an asshole, but I think he's telling his own truth.

HRC on the other hand has a long political history of revolving door evolution. If you don't like what she's saying, no problem, she'll change it up for you. That makes it impossible to know where she ever truly stands on any issue.

There will never be a circumstance where I would even accept what Trump has to say, but I don't think he's lying about how he truly feels or the direction he wants things to go.

Thankfully we have Bernie in the race. We have a chance at a different tomorrow.

8. It's a real issue as it gets close to Nixon/Bush levels before their departures

I think we'll be seeing those numbers contrasted to Clinton's appearing prominently if the percentage goes to 65% vs. 35%. Though it will take another, very respected, poll, and with a large sampling, to get the media to really think about going wide with the story.

Actually, another problem is that this kind of polling has an unintended consequence. Once people see that a majority have voiced a controversial opinion, they become less inhibited about sharing any similar view that they might have. I'll say, stay tuned regarding that point.
