So, given polls showing Bernie beating Trump by wide-margins, and Hillary even with Trump and possibly losing to him - how is it that Hillary has any support? Hmm

I was not referring to you personally but rather to the types of policies I expect from Ms. Clinton.

That's just because the Republicans have been so nice to Sanders: Not a single attack ad! Because he's the man the Republicans would LOVE to run against.

Supporting Sanders at this point is playing right into their strategy. They want Sanders to run because he is SO very vulnerable. If they got their wish and he was the candidate, the attacks would be so intense even you would not vote for him.

Apparently you are unaware of all the skeletons in Ms. Clinton's closet. Somehow I don't think Bernie can compete with her on that issue. ROTFMOL

That is, of course, all speculation.

Have you seen a single Republican ad attacking Bernie Sanders?
I have not. I wonder why not. You would think Republicans are opposed to Socialists, wouldn't you?

Links to some of those skeletons?

It could be said that Bernie hasn't done much of anything and so of course he hasn't accumulated many skeletons, just an inconsequential legislator who (mostly) voted for progressive causes. But that's not entirely true. He has a long and sordid history with socialist and communist causes. Doesn't bother me since I could be considered a social democrat, but Bernie isn't a social democrat. He is a democratic socialist. He has said it himself and I can assure you he knows the difference. If you'd like a taste of what the right wing press has on him here is a link to a right wing rag that outlines some of the skeletons we'd be seeing dragged out if he were the nominee.

They're keeping it pretty much on the down low so far but you can bet your ass we'd be pounded with adds about his communist ties should he become the nominee.

Quite right PIA. They've handled him with kid gloves hoping against hope that he might be the nominee. They must be ecstatic with the turmoil in the Democratic Party right now. They'll let him damage Clinton as much as possible because he's saving them from having to pay for the ads now. If he became the nominee the gloves would come off.

I speculate that the Republicans don't think Sanders will be the opponent.

This election cycle has brought out all the crazies, and made quite a few who were not apparent before now show their colors
