7. I personally think Bernie beats Trump in a landslide too

 

But probably not as big of one. Imo this is a "Generic Democrat +7" election. Hillary should overperform that baseline, and imo Bernie should hold that baseline or slightly underperform or overperform. Sanders probably loses to any moderate-seeming Repub.

Imo you could pick a random DUer and probably at WORST squeak past 270 every time. Trump is that bad and right now the Dems have a massive structural EV advantage.

I wish people would look at how we got here as a country. Say what you want about the right wing crazies. They did the work. They did the work starting in the 50s. They never stopped doing the work. Alternatively, look at how urban POC became the beating heart of the party of Andrew Jackson and the Confederacy. Doing the work for decade after decade, to the point that FDR, Truman and LBJ started a slow process of rejecting the racist whites of the South for black people in mostly Northern cities.
