Could Bernie benefit from Trump's aquittal?


...Bernie's at or near the top of the pack...

...Bernie's name hasn't been dragged through the horrible mud of impeachment...

...the contrast between Bernie and trump is much greater than the contrast between Bernie and pence...

...I think Bernie would truly benefit from an acquittal of trump...


...what do you think?

...could Bernie benefit from trump's acquittal?

...

primary today, I would vote for:

1. Yes... but then Bernie benefits from EVERYTHING...cuz he has the right aggressive progressive agenda

 

that We The People DEMAND and that Bernie will DELIVER!!

Still hopin President Pig Vomit is convicted... but, it's doubtful that will happen with Rethugz in charge.


Bernie/Elizabeth or Elizabeth/Bernie 2020!!
Either way, they're stronger together & can't be bought!!
Jump on the Bernie Bandwagon & join The Revolution!!

Voting for Sanders

Had some Bernie brats at Starbucks try to convince me Bernie is the only choice. No matter what experience Biden has.

10. I can certainly see why you hope impeachment is destructive for some Dems

 

at the expense of others. I guess Bernie's unique brand of loyalty to the Democratic party trickles down to his flock.

17. who...

 

...believes trump's not going to be acquitted?

...who believes the contrast between Bernie and trump is not the greatest of all our candidates?

...who believes that contrast wouldn't make for a clearer choice or decision?

...who believes Bernie's name has been dragged severely through the mud of impeachment?

...who believes Bernie would not benefit from a trump acquittal under any circumstance?


...let's see a show of hands...

18. trump would destroy a weak candidate like sanders

 

In addition to the well written 101 page memorandum with oppo on sanders with a 1000 pages of backup from the Clinton campaign trump has his own oppo file on sanders that would destroy such a weak and divisive candidate like sanders. Trump had a two foot thick book of oppo research on Sanders http://www.newsweek.com/myths-cost-democrats-presidential-election-521044

They ignored the fact that Sanders had not yet faced a real campaign against him. Clinton was in the delicate position of dealing with a large portion of voters who treated Sanders more like the Messiah than just another candidate. She was playing the long game—attacking Sanders strongly enough to win, but gently enough to avoid alienating his supporters. Given her overwhelming support from communities of color—for example, about 70 percent of African-American voters cast their ballot for her—Clinton had a firewall that would be difficult for Sanders to breach....

So what would have happened when Sanders hit a real opponent, someone who did not care about alienating the young college voters in his base? I have seen the opposition book assembled by Republicans for Sanders, and it was brutal. The Republicans would have torn him apart. And while Sanders supporters might delude themselves into believing that they could have defended him against all of this, there is a name for politicians who play defense all the time: losers....

The Republicans had at least four other damning Sanders videos (I don’t know what they showed), and the opposition research folder was almost 2-feet thick. (The section calling him a communist with connections to Castro alone would have cost him Florida.) In other words, the belief that Sanders would have walked into the White House based on polls taken before anyone really attacked him is a delusion built on a scaffolding of political ignorance.

sanders was such a weak primary candidate that the Clinton campaign did not use its oppo but trump would have fun destroying such a weak candidate like sanders
