Democrats sick of the ‘status quo’ flock to billionaire-bashing Bernie Sanders

At 74, Bernie Sanders is this year’s Democratic phenomenon in the White House race, urging Americans to launch a “political revolution” against billionaires and elites — including his chief party rival, Hillary Clinton.

A substantial slice of Americans are frustrated with how Democratic leadership — nearly seven years into Barack Obama’s presidency — has bumped up against the hard limits of political power, especially under a Republican-led Congress.

They claim that reducing inequality is a matter of leadership and political will — and the jettisoning of a political class that is beholden to special interests.

Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, is no newcomer to politics: he served as mayor of Burlington from 1981 to 1989, and has been entrenched in Congress for nearly a quarter century.

Clinton shrugs off slumping poll numbers, looks to debate

Presidential contender Hillary Clinton shrugged off her slumping poll numbers on Monday and said the upcoming Democratic debates would give her a chance to draw a contrast with liberal Senator Bernie Sanders and other rivals as she makes her White House pitch directly to voters.

“When we start the debate, we will start to draw contrasts not only as I do all the time with Republicans but where appropriate with my Democratic competitors,” she said.

Clinton, once the prohibitive favorite for the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election, has seen her cushion dwindle in polls both nationally and in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire amid questions about her use of a private email server for her work as secretary of state.
