45. My point was we believed McGovern had a chance to win. Hell, the Goldwater supporters

believed Goldwater had a chance to win. I am NOT trying to reanalyze the elections, I am pointing out that supporters of a particular candidate will always believe their candidate will win. That's a given

As for the polls, all I pointed out was at this time it shows Hillary is leading. That does not mean it will remain so, but at this time it is.

When people start to make comments that Hillary cannot win the general election, that is purely based on an individual opinion, as of right now the polls don't indicate that. Can the polls change, absolutely, but this is where it stands now.

As Bernie becomes more well known, I have no doubt that his poll numbers will increase. How much will depend on how resonant his message is.

If Bernie was leading in the polls, I would not say the are meaningless. It represent a snapshot in time. Tomorrow may be different, and yes, things can change dramatically, but that isn't the point I was arguing. The point I was arguing is that people saying Hillary cannot win, is nonsense, and the poll numbers today indicate that. the People who say Bernie cannot win is also nonsense. He is just starting to make himself known. We will not know impact Bernie will have for some time, because his message needs to get out.
