Well, if she cannot even muster anything from her own party's base, how in <deity's> name is she going to stand up to Trump? Whoever is voting for Sanders is certainly not going to hold their nose and vote for Hillary if the chance she ran against Trump. Period. Hillary and the Democrat party will be destroyed in the general election.

At least Sanders vs Trump will give the American people a clear cut choice on what direction we want to go in. People may be surprised in how many swing voters will vote for Sanders.

Lots of people are torn between Trump and Bernie because they speak directly to the working class with no donor money or special interest in between. Like it or not, that is the case many feel.
It's really sad that the political system is so broken (or should I say "fixed"), that not being completely corrupt is considered a special edition feature to have as a candidate. smh

Your bias is showing.

You are a dem, right?
Right now I don't know what I am, but I have been conservative. What I should have said was "Establishment Republicans," because I know a lot of them really dislike Donald Trump, but I figure they'd rather him than Sanders.
