how so? Bernie is more popular now and he has better name recognition than he did in 2016. So you think he has no chance now LOL He crushs Trump now in all head to head polls.

You really think after Trump people will care about the embezzlement? Trump paid 25 million dollars out because his University defrauded students. Trump has paved the way for any crook or sexual predator to be president as long as they appeal to a populist movement.

Right now, whether or not you think his platform is credible, the majority of the electorate do believe in it and they want it.

Free college is supported by the majority, medicare for all is supported by the majority, his anti-war stance is supported by the majority, his gun law reform is overwhelmingly supported. Your complete dismissal of the facts and presentation of purely subjective opinions and flawed assessments are noted.
Majority of people support free college. LOL. You keep using those same polls that showed Hilary would stomp Trump and see where that leads you bud.

I'm not sure on the polls methodology you're referring to but she did win in terms of popular vote so I'm not sure if these polls are skewed in that direction. I could be wrong.

Either way, there's a difference, the shy tory phenomenon exists in America too, that had a very important role in why the polls were off in the election. I don't feel that's the same here.

Oh and look Jeff Bezos caved to Bernie Sanders and is now giving his workers $15 an hour


https://www.cnbc.com/2018/10/02/sand...age-to-15.html

Bernie Sanders praises Jeff Bezos for hiking Amazon minimum wage to $15


Sen. Bernie Sanders praised CEO Jeff Bezos on Tuesday after Amazon announced that it will increase the minimum wage for its workers to $15 per hour for all U.S. employees.

"It is no secret that I have been a harsh critic of the wage and employment practices of Amazon and its owner Jeff Bezos," Sanders said. "It has been my view that the middle class and working families of this country should not have to subsidize Mr. Bezos, the wealthiest person on Earth, because many of his Amazon employees earned wages that were so low that they were forced to go on government programs like food stamps, Medicaid and subsidized housing."

Last month, Sanders introduced legislation named the Bezos Act that would tax corporations for every dollar their low-wage workers receive in government health-care benefits or food stamps.

The Vermont senator on Tuesday congratulated Bezos "for doing exactly the right thing." Amazon said it will also start advocating for an increase to the federal minimum wage.

"Today, I want to give credit where credit is due," Sanders said.

Sanders has been fighting for several years to increase the minimum wage in the United States to $15 per hour. In his statement, Sanders also thanked Amazon workers who reached out to his office asking for support fighting for a minimum wage hike.

The senator said Amazon's announcement, "could well be a shot heard around the world." Sanders called on other profitable companies to make similar moves.

"Bottom line is that in the richest county in the history of the world, no full-time employee should be living in poverty," Sanders said.

Bezos thanked Sanders on Twitter and said he "hopes others will join in."

I think it's absolutely the same. The silent majority (from what I've seen in my obviously limited experience) is trending very hard right at the moment despite most of my friends being classic Dems. Not worth much as it's just anecdotal but I don't know anyone who would willingly vote for Bernie. He's too radical.

I think one of the tell tale signs (to me) will be the gubernatorial race here in MD.

We are a blue state, and have a candidate Ben jealous who is a democrat, and has even said that he considers himself a socialist, and is also pushing for the $15 per hour minimum.

Right now he is behind, but if he loses, in a state like Maryland that has notoriously democratic, and minority, then I would assume Bernie and his ideas aren't as well received as most would think.

If he wins, then I would concede that maybe the Bern train might be more than what Republicans would let on

Bernies ideas are some of the most popular in the country. 70% of Americans support Medicare for all for example. He is the most popular politician in the country because his ideas are so well received.

Jeff Bezos just made a $15 min wage for Amazon because of Bernie Sanders.

You need to start using facts

Well, look at you putting words in my mouth.

Where did I sate that Bernie wasn't popular? or that Amazon didn't start a $15 an hour minimum wage?

You need to stop assuming things and actually comment on the content of the post

Any other ideas besides min wage hike and free college and health care? Im genuinely asking mostly because I didnt care much for him when he ran (though I liked him more than Hillary) so I didnt pay much attention other than hearing this.
