ALL THE SURVEYS INDICATE THAT BERNIE SANDER FARES MUCH BETTER THAN HILLARY IN A RACE AGAINST EITHER DONALD TRUMP OR TED CRUZ.


SANDERS OUTPOLLS CANDIDATES ON THE RIGHT

Only a truly progressive position on issues of inequality and Wall Street abuse can clobber the political right. Centrist positions such as those of the Democratic Party establishment let the right off the hook. This is a point that Ralph Nader made in 2000 and 2004 when he asked to be included in at least one of the presidential debates. He argued that he would frame the issues in such a way as to place Bush on the defensive and thus in effect would actually benefit Gore and Kerry. The below surveys indicate that Bernie Sanders outpolls Trump, Cruz and Rubio with a far greater margin than does Hillary Clinton. This would even be more the case if Sanders would assume more leftist positions on foreign policy and point out the tie-in between Washington interventionism in the Mid-East and elsewhere and corporate interests.

The only poll that counts is voting and Bernie has a problem beating Clinton. On many issues there is little difference between the two, like foreign policy. When are you going to write on whats happening in Venezuela again? Which is more important that covering Bernie, in my view.
