Possibly, but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun. I prefer to watch the Billionaires who are pulling the strings of Cruz and Clinton duking it out in the open.

You think?

My reasoning is this. 72% of the public supports a path to citizenship or residency for illegal aliens that meet certain requirements. Ted Cruz has drawn a line in the sand on this issue. There are lots of other positions he holds, pro-life, etc. that are out of touch with a majority of the American public. He is very clear about where he stands, and a majority of the public just doesn't agree with him on a large number of issues, although he does make evangelicals squeal in delight. He is who he is. He can't paint himself as someone else in the election.

Trump is more a slithery, appeal-to-everyone type of personality who I think could energize the electorate (he already has) without being clear about where he stands on a lot of things. IMHO he is severely underestimated by democratic strategists.

I think the hardest race for her might be Kasich, who has a lot of moderate positions that appeal to democrats. Planned Parenthood would be kind of an albatross around his neck, though.

I think Cruz will pull some votes from the religious people in the deep south. Some, not very many, religious blacks might vote for Cruz, while I doubt they will find Trump appealing. The republican will need some backing outside his party. Personally I mistrust billionaires, most I know do not agree with me about this.

People who like Trump are those who enjoy watching him call all the politicos stupid liars on national TV. He exudes total disdain for all politicos because he knows them from the back rooms he meets them in and had zero respect for these lapdogs and that includes the likes of Bush, Rubio, Cruz, and Clinton. He and others in the Billionaire Class are the real political power and I watch in amazement as they come out in the open

Bernie actually has her flustered!
This is great.
She sure dodges and deflects ALOT.
I think she believes if she raises her voice and waves her hands around people think she knows what she's talking about even though she is totally not answering the question.

Well.. Sanders is more educated with the specifics of whats going on and able to debate coherently. Trump is out of his league in this arena. Trump won't be able to get into a debate on specifics with Hillary

So? Sanders is doing the same thing. It's odd that you targeted her for doing exactly what he does.

Exactly!

By the way, I don't think he's "tearing her apart" as others have written. He gets angry and shouts a lot, but she's been getting a good share of the applause from the audience.
