The following article is based on a public opinion survey. The methodology considers historical survey of Pew Research and Gallup, and CNN and MSNBC Polls.

Sanders dominates Clinton in California with 61.25%

Bernie Sanders Polls: Desperately Seeking Momentum, Sanders May Now Have It - New Analysis Predicts A 61 Percent Win In California

But it will take wins by big margins to catch up to Hillary Clinton, and polls for upcoming states indicate that Bernie Sanders isn’t close. FiveThirtyEight gives Sanders a less than 10 percent chance of winning Tuesday’s race in Indiana, where a loss would all but doom whatever comeback chances his campaign had still been harboring.

Indiana Democratic Primary Results: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders In Tight Race

Something for Bernie fans. Very cool!

That is pretty sad. I mean, Clinton is bad news. There is no doubt about that. But the socialist BS is not what we need running the country. The Europeans tried it and lost their shirts. Why in God's name would we want to wreck the economy with something that has been shown to be the wrong way?

It is not so much a support of socialism but a true hatred of American values and principles. You heard it with Obama and his bitter half when they declared "we are finally proud of this country." Most of the policy Sanders and his followers support are un-American and quite frankly scary.

I think that, though I would possibly have used other words, that is quite true, when you take the time to look at probable impact of his policies.

That he "hates America"? Really?

Say what you want about Sanders, but do you really think he has "hatred" for America? Or that his desire to help the middle class is "un-American"?

If "un-American" is in the dictionary, and I hope it's not, it's the most useless word in there. It's meaningless.

I would tend to agree that he probably does not "hate America"; only America as it is. But the policies he proposes would do enormous damage to the country, should they be implemented.

We saw it with B. Hussein in 2008 with his world apology tour and returning the bust of Winston Churchill. Look at the majority of his policies and his wife's as well:

Obamacare: Un-American/anti-choice/Un-Democratic. Rising premium costs with several companies going out of business.
Michelle Obama school lunch regulation: Extreme bullying of the food industry. Just look at your child's school lunch.
Obama's vacation to Cuba
Anti-Christian/Anti-American agenda by promoting the interests of gays/transgender/abortion supporters/climate change alarmists.
Strong revolt of the Second Amendment

Sanders would take it a step further with his socialism madness. He supports less choice and more authoritarian policies. Under a Sanders administration:

- We would fall further behind China with his support of carbon taxes
- Foolish continued support of a failed Obamacare health policy
- Tidal wave taxes raised on the middle class while he would give gift wrapped presents to the unemployed, and least skilled/intelligent Americans - raising the minimum wage, increasing un-paid workers benefits, etc..
- Essentially anyone that works hard would fall victim to a Sanders reign. His vision would dramatically re-shape America's vision in the same way Fidel Castro's vision changed Cuba during the Cuba Revolution.

How? What "enormous damage" would be done, other than spending a lot of money, which no administration regardless of party has been averse to in decades?

What a load of weapons-grade nonsense.

1. OBAMACARE: A giant giveback to the insurance industry. It sucks ass, but certainly not for the reasons you claim.
2. SCHOOL LUNCH: Of all the things right-wing idiots have gotten their panties in a wad about, this is the most idiotic. BTW, Michelle Obama has no legislative power. Any federal regulations of school lunch programs were passed by Congress. "Look at your kid's lunch" is not a policy point. The federal government, which subsidizes most of these lunch programs, has established minimum standards, just like it always has. That's it.
3. OBAMA'S "VACATION" TO CUBA: What?
4. ANTI-CHRISTIAN AGENDA: Oh, that Obama, treating the faggots like humans. How "un-American."
5. SECOND AMENDMENT: Name me one gun right you've lost since Obama took office.

"WORLD APOLOGY TOUR:" Well, I suppose when you have people who think America has never done anything wrong because Jesus, someone acknowledging that we're not perfect might cause some butthurt. But he didn't apologize for America. He apologized for certain actions America has taken, and quite frankly, he was right to do so. It's about goddamn time we acknowledged we've made mistakes.
"CHURCHILL BUST:" *sigh*

1. Who the **** cares.

Listen,

The United States is the most powerful and successful nation. Lets compare it to Facebook.

If Mark Zuckerberg retired and someone took over Facebook they shouldn't change. Why? Facebook has a proven model of success. Would it be wise for the new Facebook CEO to say, "let's implement the the same principles and models of Bahu."

America has a proven model of success: capitalism. We are not on the verge of defeat but continued prosperity. America is not going to turn into a puddle. Why on earth would the next President try and implement foreign socialist policies that have FAILED in every other country?

My only conclusion is that you must have a adverse opinion of America, a true hatred to support socialism, again which has failed in every other country.

Facebook changes constantly. What planet do you live on?

America already has adopted certain policies that could be deemed "socialist," and we're still here. What, exactly, has Sanders proposed that would be so ruinous?

Putting in place social programs that would inevitably develop a dynamic of their own.

What? I go away for four days to come back and find this?

That's the way it is for a woman though, if the man wants; he just take(s), and the woman has to stand patiently by.

All of that is from a website called ThePoliticalAnalyzer. Their 'About' page says:

I think I'm going to put my trust into something a bit more reputable than the Meme-expert, storytelling, social-media expert rapper.

The Right-Wing is desperate, because they know the mainstream doesn't believe the bull**** they really spew (and this thread proves that it is just that, bull****).

Dammit, I was hoping the thread title was actually true.

Again, Sanders vs Trump. That's the dream ticket for America right now. Time to pick our future. No more political SSDD.

...........................................actual polls...............RealClearPolitics.............

RealClearPolitics

The site's founders say their goal is to give readers "ideological diversity".[6] This claim been disputed by some liberal news outlets, alleging observations of a conservative bias in the content it displays.[7]

As Obama lead solidifies, RealClearPolitics shows right wing bias

RCP's Last Throw Of The Dice
t's been pretty commonly noted around here that RealClearPolitics has a certain... let's just say, an interesting slant in what polls it chooses to include and what polls it doesn't. (Read: All Republican schill pollsters count, only PPP counts from the Dem side and then only sometimes)

Yesterday, we discredited Real Clear Politics. Today, WE post the polls

Election Handicappers Are Using Risky Tool: Mixed Poll Averages

"There's no single best pollster who always gets all the races right," says Charles Franklin, professor at the University of Wisconsin and co-developer of Pollster.com. He says even the best poll occasionally misses the result by a few points or more, thanks to statistical sampling error. Pollster and Real Clear Politics could bolster their case by comparing their numbers directly against those from individual polling firms in terms of election accuracy, a step neither has taken.

The Polls Might Be Skewed Against Democrats — Or Republicans

Real Crappy Politics <- We need to end this
