FINALLY!! America's flagship newspaper acknowledges that Bernie is more electable than Hillary!!

Cross posted in GDP (this is my first OP here, though)

"...Sanders, buoyed by the support of independent voters, outperforms Mrs. Clinton in hypothetical general-election matchups in both states among registered voters."

http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2016/01/10/bernie-sanders-makes-strong-showing-in-new-polls/

I love it. The New York Times is sticking a fork in Hillary's and Bill's recent electability argument.

Some folks who make a habit of posting national election polls as if the primaries are all over would just love it if Bernie's supporters get disheartened enough to forget that it is independent voters who decide the general election.

Well, that ain't gonna happen! It has become clear even to the MSM's flagship establishment newspaper that Bernie Sanders is the most electable candidate in a general election matchup, not Hillary.

Most, if not all, IA and NH polls do not even take into account first-time voters so IMAGINE what is going to happen in Iowa and NH when millennial voters turn out as they did eight years ago for another Senator who was second place in the polls!

Looks like The People will vote for Change just as they did in 2008. Tomorrow, I am going to a Bernie campaign organizational meeting led by Zack Exley. I can't wait!

Definitely Feeling The Bern here in upstate NY... yep, I think another donation to Bernie is coming on... GO BERNIE!

2. Bernie addressed this last night, at the rally in Des Moines, IA

Hundreds showed up, despite low, single digit temperatures, with a wind chill that must have been below zero.

Bernie quipped: "In Vermont, we'd think this was warm!"

3. Independents make up 43%

Of the voting public!
Democrats can now claim only 30% who identify as Democrats.
Republicans have only 26% who will actually admit to being a Republican.

Damn right Independents will decide this election and we all know most of them lean left and the majority of those will be voting for Bernie. Throw Millennials into the fray - they overwhelmingly support Bernie, and he's won the election. Both the Primary and the GE!

PEACE ✌
LOVE ❤

8. It's sad what the party has become.

Republican lite and it stands for greed over its constituents. Who would ever think a Democratic president would ever, in a million years, offer up Social Security as a bargaining chip to Republicans?! It's outrageous and we have to stop that crap in its tracks! We NEED Bernie. SS is definitely up for the chopping block if anyone but Bernie becomes president. I don't trust HRH, as far as I can throw her, to protect SS.

PEACE

that where the rubber meets the road, in the voting booth, Democratic primary voters will use their commons sense and good judgement and see that Hillary is far too much of a risk with all of her past and present baggage to put forward in the GE.

Admittedly I don't see too many political bumper stickers at all. I probably see more old Obama stickers than anything else. After that, it's Sanders then generic tea party stickers. No Clinton stickers at all though.

Do you really think someone is going to say, "Oh, here's a guy who will stand up to Wall Street--we need that!

Oh, oops! He's a self-declared Socialist. Ratz. Won't vote for him."

The issues to which Bernie is speaking are way larger than a label.

And while we're on the topic, I've heard commentators say people won't vote for him because he's Jewish.

OK, so America will vote for an African American, but a Jew--never!

U.S. anti-communist fanaticism is the madness of a dying generation.

The people you think will be motivated to vote against a socialist have already done so. They voted against the imaginary socialist Barack Obama. For eight years everyone's been hearing that a socialist (Muslim, foreigner, you name it) took over America. And most people weren't swayed by it.

…..and this terrifies me because I think the Democratic political machine is fixing the election for a candidate that is unelectable in the general.

Yes, all we Democrats will for vote for the final nominee, no matter who it is, against any Repub—but Independents won't—they'll just stay home, along with many of the young people just entering politics who are ardent for Bernie.

The Clintons had their moment and it lasted a long time. The country is tired of them and underwhelmed by this eternal lingering.

40. Psychic Warns Hillary Clinton of "Horrible Berning in 2016"

Hillary won't go quietly and she is going to kick up the donations from her rich pals, but we can beat her.

Psychic Warns Hillary Clinton of "Horrible Berning in 2016"

"It was a rough morning. Miss Cleo warned Secretary Clinton that 2016 contained some terrible 'Berning' for her. It was really weird, because the psychic actually told Hillary how to spell 'Berning,' and informed her it was a 'proper verb,' whatever the hell that is," stated the senior Hillary 2016 campaign staffer, who spoke to TNA on condition of anonymity.

They only acknowledge the truth that we all know. The truth that many Hillary supporters possibly already know too.

51. Great News! I feel the same in that the Bernie support is underground to a large extent because so

much of it is Millenials who have been disengaged til now and independents who were Dems but got turned off by the DLC & Third Way machinations. Plus, Bernie has run a pitch-perfect campaign in getting out ahead of any questions that have come up about his candidacy, like; his democratic socialism, black lives matter, Wall Street reforms, and especially his electability in the general.

53. I love your first sentence: NY Times is sticking a fork in Hillary and Bills

electability argument. Wow. Awsome that they did. Maybe someone at the NY Times figured it was time they start eating their vegies.

54. It doesn't take a genius to realize HRC would be our most UN-electable candidate in quite some time.

 

People will turn out in droves to vote against Madam Weathervane, driven simply by their hatred of her, and a huge swath of the left-leaning electorate will simply go "meh" and- at best- hold their nose and vote for her. I don't know anyone planning on actually working for her. Almost nobody likes her- she's just been sold for all this time as "inevitable."

That and she is- again- running an absolute shit campaign.

66. When she loses Iowa and New Hampshire the inevitability bubble gets popped

and Bernie will get an almost instantaneous 10% surge from people changing from Hillary's to Bernie's bandwagon.

and inevitable becomes negligible.

57. Yes, the time has come for the newspapers to reconnect to reality.

 

Reporting echo-chambered fantasies of the 1 % is a bit past its time.

60. This is truly quite an achievement.

Bernie has done this without the support of the Democratic Party Machine or Democratic Party leaders and with very little meaningful coverage by mainstream media.

I expect Hillary Clinton to be way ahead in most polls given the fact that she has been on the national stage for decades and has the backing of party elites.

Can you imagine if they had gone for him?... Or even set up a level playing field?


Fantasies are fun....

like if Congress had worked with Obama what might we have now?


... but alas not real.


Sanders' place now, what with reality, is nothing short of amazing and, win or lose, has already made a huge difference.

He's already amazing!

63. A General Election with Both Candidates perceived by the Voters with Character Issues?

It's not inconceivable someone would rationalize a vote for Trump even though they believe he is of low morals...
Let's say in this case with Clinton, if they feel there is not much difference.

And it's pretty easy to see who is going to be at an advantage between these two if they are the nominees of their party.

69. I really hope that eventually the DNC will take notice of the fact that Bernie outperforms Hillary..

in head-to-head polls against republicans. If Bernie wins the nomination, there will be less "Swing" states that need defending against republicans. Democrats would, for once, be able to play offense during the general election and be able to spend more time in purple and red states trying to turn them blue. This could be a great opportunity to revitalize the Democratic party and make them relevant again across the country. That is, if the DNC weren't so in-the-bag for a certain candidate.

along with their political baggage waiting to be exploited by Trump or whoever the Republicans nominate..

Especially in the times we're living in..
