First off I know this is about as likely as winning the lottery, but why not play with the idea. Would you vote for this ticket? Are you more likely or less to vote for trump if he picked bernie? And do you think bernie supporters would come on board? Finally do you think bernie would be a great VP?

I have been warming to this ticket and think it's a big winner. Too bad it won't happen.

With Trump as my first choice and Bernie as my second, I would welcome the ticket. Trump has a plan to bring some wealth back to the country and Bernie has good ideas on where to spend it. We must go "outside the box" to stop the downward spiral we are in.

When people support this particular ticket what it says to me is that they couldn't care less about what the candidate represents or stands for other than they substitute for flipping the politicians the bird. That sounds good to many, I am sure. What they are forgetting is that we'll all have to live with it for four years.

It also shows a woeful lack of understanding of how political parties and Presidental elections work.

No....and I'd assume poor Bernie was senile.

You could put Ghandi, MLK, Princess Di, AND Mother Teresa on the ticket...as long as Trump is on it, its a no go for me.

No. Trump lacks the knowledge, skills and temperament to be president and nothing changes that.

I love all these people who never voted for a Republican in their life excusing their vote for Hillary by blaming Trump.

I don't know if you folks noticed, but after 7 years of Obama this country is in trouble. You really think Hillary and the same old status quo is going to fix anything?

Picking Sanders would be a good way to guarantee a loss. Trump needs to pick a conservative to have any chance at all.

I voted for Romney in 2012 and George W in 2004. No matter who Trump would have as his VP; no way am I going to vote for him.

Nope, for this reason. ^^^ And if Sanders ever agreed to be on a ticket with Trump, then that means I badly misjudged Bernie and as a result, would never cast a vote for him, either.
