Why aren't people talking about Bernie? Why doesn't the DNC support its front runner?

Bernie Sanders continues to draw huge crowds. Why aren't the Democrats and MSM talking about him non-stop. Instead we continue to be force fed the daily excesses of King Hillary who continues to play to very small crowds in 1/2 empty rooms. We get to hear tirades of King Hillary's squawking false outrage over guns, yet nothing at all about what Bernie had to say to this huge crowd.

20,000 people came to see Bernie Sanders in Boston. Why aren’t we talking more about it? - The Washington Post

Bernie Sanders Rally this weekend. 2X the number that Obama drew at same even 8 years ago.




Compare this to Hillary Clinton this weekend. Link to Image . The camera person cleverly didn't photograph the empty chairs.

Hmmm, maybe because (1) he is not a front runner at this moment, (2) he is an Independent, and (3) he is a self-admitted Democratic Socialist with low electability in the general election?

He is far more popular with better ideas than Hillary. Every other word out of his mouth isn't a lie. Like him or not people believe he is trust worthy.

Unfortunately many will put party ahead of principles.

Definitely something happening with the Sanders campaign, and to ignore it would be foolish. Party elites so intent on Hillary or Biden getting nominated they are - as usual - ignoring the feelings of the actual voters.

Eh... yes he is. He's neck and neck with Clinton, and those polls SPECIFICALLY target people who they think would be Clinton supporters. Take a look at your community, take a look at social media, etc. The general public supports Sanders. Period.

Because the DNC knows that he is dangerous for the party's image and unelectable. The RNC would try the same thing with Trump if he wasn't so TV savvy.

Sanders is also raising a lot of money, and from small contributors not fat cats.

I believe his message is resonating with voters. Of course, the GOP will harp on socialist, socialist, socialist as if it is a dirty word.

While Democrats will hold their noses and blacken the oval for Clinton, they are enthusiastic for Sanders.

When the U.S. was designed the embrace free-enterprise and capitalism, socialism IS a dirty word. If you don't like it, feel free to leave. Maybe you can meet some refugee friends in Sweden.

Because so many people on the right are obsessed with Hillary. They become orgasmic thinking about her. There are posters on CD who probably have a cigarette after they start yet another Hillary thread.

The guys who post when the storm front blows through will give up making idiotic posts about Hillary and Obama and switch over to Bernie if he starts winning primaries. A socialist is their wet dream. Reading the stupid stuff they'll come up with will provide endless hours of entertainment.

Those posts will be even better then the quality entertainment provided by the people who slobber over Trump.
