In fact had he gotten the nomination it would have been a big victory for the GOP, not one that was won because of the electoral college. Like him or hate him, he would never and will never be president.

and, yes, I am sure many of us are unhappy with the frictions between the two parties, but only cow, don't put that on Trump or the right side. This has been going on since the election of Obama. It is not new, nor would the 2 sides have worked together if your hero had won.
Actually, it makes a lot of sense. Part of the reason Hillary lost was because of the fact that many people who voted for Trump simply didn't like her, personally. Also, have you forgotten that some of what Bernie said about trade deals was quite similar to what Trump said? Both candidates professed to want us out of many of our wars (a promise, BTW, that I think Bernie would have been much more likely to keep.) Bernie would have lost the religious right, but Hillary lost them anyway. He would have lost people who voted for Trump because of his anti-Muslim rhetoric, and his much-hyped border wall, but Hillary lost them anyway.

I can't think of a single group Hillary won that Bernie could not have also won. On the other hand, I see people on here every day who have said they would have voted for Bernie, but chose Trump over Hillary, and if you don't see them, too, you are not paying attention.

I don't think he would have.

Still doesn't justify what the DNC did.

It's pretty much the same thing, providing social programs and redistribution of wealth, via heavily increasing taxes which most people aren't ready for.

One problem a lot are forgetting is that Bernie all but said he would make Elizabeth Warren his VP. In addition to being extreme far left, is One of the most unlikeable people you could ever imagine. Having Bernie and that crazy woman in charge of something like the Supreme Court could have definitely scared off a lot of moderate voters

A better question is, did anyone really think he had a chance against Hillary? Nope, the elite's saw Bernie as part of the show while all along they planned to coronate Hillary. BUT the American people pulled the plug on their control and elected Trump, that's why the elite are STILL freaking.

That's what happens when you shut people up, instead, they spoke with their vote and because the elite had their fingers in their ears they didn't even see it coming.
