They were too busy seeing dollar signs from large donors to look at Hillary.
I mean really, as bad as the GOP fucked things up, the Dems made them look like a bunch of geniuses. The whole email thing and the clinton foundation stuff, with Bill's history, and Abedins association with weiner, it was all ridiculous and stupid, i can't believe that people with more than three brain cells would look at that and go yes! against the VP under the most popular president at the end of 8 years in history. Stupid Stupid Stupid. They should round up evry DNC leadership person and every single person from the leadership of the Dems and Clintons campaign and tattoo right on their forehead "STUPID" in large bold letters.
Hey Sander supporters guess what. WERE GONNA TAKE THE BLAME.
Because he supported Clinton? Sander's was threatened into supporting Clinton or him and his family would end up mysteriously dead.
Poor guy... had to take that $600,000 summer house. How will he make it through this?
Actually his wife took it, she didn't pay for it, it was willed to her
Dont think sowww.snopes.com/.../
"So while it is true Senator Bernie Sanders has purchased a summer home in Vermont, the real estate acquisition was more of a trade than a questionable portfolio upgrade." So his wife was willed a house, but sold it and bought one closer.
LOL... ok You need to do your research before you start running your mouth from now on.
I have.However, the original Seven Days report included information on how the Sanders' afforded the summer home. O'Meara Sanders said that she had inherited a vacation home in Maine, but the family was unable to make use of it due to its distance from their primary residence in Vermont, so she sold it and used the proceeds to finance the purchase of a more suitable vacation home in North Hero:
Yeah right... I smell Clinton Foundation money...

Why? In primary polling Sanders did much better against Trump than Clinton did.
I think a lot of t=sanders supporters did end up going to trumps side once he dropped out, so maybe he could have pulled it off
Hillary wouldn't had to deal with bullshit if she didn't have a corrupt and shady past.
She didn't have a corrupt and shady past. She's one of the squeakiest clean politicians to have spent decades in political office. The email scandal was nothing but horsepiss and so was the Benghazi thing. Those two "scandals" were brought up over and over and over again throughout the campaign - largely thanks to Bernie and his fucking bros at the beginning - despite the fact that she'd been cleared of any wrongdoing multiple times.
If you honestly believe this had nothing to do with misogyny, well, I envy your rose tinted worldview because unfortunately, reality is very different.
"She's one of the squeakiest clean politicians to have spent decades in political office" LMFAO, you can't be serious. If she is squeakiest clean politician, than why the need for white noise machine while giving a speech to select donors, and why as sectary of state did she give weapon deals to countries Bill Clinton gave speeches too?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s0nqsKIHdZg
Sara413 Indeed, you're correct.
@jacquesvol oh I dunno... Breitbartt disagrees.. lol
How was hillary better,Sanders had the kind of left policies we needed
@Sara413 Breitbart. smut I'd feel dirty , looking at that.
@jacquesvol Seriously Sanders was WAY better.And yeah, while she may not be satan spawn, she is kinda shady
@Sara413Was he willing or not? I don't know but imho Bernie was a loose cannon (ab) used by the GOP to disrupt the DEM campaign: leftist enough to seduce some, but not enough of a politician to placate the moderate DEMs. And a 'Communist' reputation to make sure he'd get no votes outside the DEM party.
@jacquesvol Really, Cause I know people who had never voted anything but republican but said they LOVED Bernie sanders
@jacquesvol My mother chief among them
@Waffles731 It figures: Republicans love Sanders for the damage he did to Hillary's campaign.
@jacquesvol Not really, All of them are pissed that Sanders isn't president
@jacquesvol They genuinely wanted Bernie Sanders
@Waffles731 The first socialist POTUS... imagine convincing Joe Average to vote for a socialist. That could MAYBE have happened before Wilson became president, nearly 100 years ago. And even then it would have been difficult. Teddy Roosevelt would have brushed any socialist aside without even winking.
@jacquesvol That's discounting Eisenhower, Truman, and FDR
@Waffles731 FDR had some left leaning moderatesocial feelings. Eisenhower's social feelings were not absent qat all but, -like Truman's- based on his religious beliefs. Moreover, I feel that after WW2, the American public wouldn't have accepted it if Roosevelt's New Deal policy was abandoned.
@jacquesvol I LOVE Eisenhower,God I wish he was still president
@jacquesvol The military industrial complex would shit themselves
Just the Clinton voters who supported Sanders in the primary.
The only reason he couldn't beat Hillary was because the odds where highly stacked against him, and actually would of won the Democratic Nomination if it weren't for voter suppression and election fraud.
Better chance of catching independents, LMDAO. Actually Sanders got more Independent votes than Clinton in the Primary plus Sanders would of won by mobilizing the youth vote."Sanders has repeatedly proven that he outperforms Hillary Clinton among independent voters. Indiana was just the latest example of Sanders’ crossover appeal. He also won big in New Hampshire, Wisconsin and Michigan, where independents are free to participate"
Independents who were willing to register or care enough about the Dem to vote in the primary. Which, yeah - more of those swinging between Dem & a third party liberal would be independent in that race and support the more liberal candidate.I'm talking the bigger number of moderates who fall between liberal and conservative.
This is just incorrect
Article explaining that Sanders would have beaten Trump if he was the Democratic nominee.usuncut.com/.../
Because you "had to"? Someone had a gun to your head? Or wait, it was a mind control device!
@ProbablyTooMature Exactly, I was Bernie supporter from the beginning and didn't haft to vote for Clinton as their was Jill Stein of the Green Party who is way more progressive than clinton will ever be.
I had to vote for Clinton because Trump is the antithesis of what I believe in and voting for a third party candidate would have wasted my vote.
Actually both Clinton and Trump are antithesis of what I believe in. Voting for Clinton a candidate I don't believe in would have been a wasted vote.
You can vote for whoever you like
Exactly. However, you contradicted yourself... you said "had to".
@ProbablyTooMature I had to vote for the candidate whose views somewhat resembled my own since the one whose views were the best match was not running.
So then you chose to... not you had to.
You mean establishment support, and that establishment support is one of the reasons Clinton lost. usuncut.com/.../
Sanders would've had even less support than she did.
Actually sanders would of had more support than Clinton, Sanders would of had the support Clinton had plus support from all the Sander supporters who voted for Trump and third party.
You're assuming that Clinton got no moderate voters, when in fact most moderate voters voted for her. Sanders would not have gotten the same proportion of moderates because he's a radical leftist. Yes, he would've appealed more to the far left, but only at the expense of the much larger portion of the electorate that lives in the middle of the spectrum.
"Polling failure," he says. LOL!https://is.4chan.org/pol/1478781386222.pnghttps://i.4cdn.org/pol/1478783569890.pnghttps://i.4cdn.org/pol/1478783391406.pnghttps://i.4cdn.org/pol/1478783451303.jpg
Wait wait wait. What are you considering "bankers"? The government is so powerful they control the "fed" (interest rate on home loans) and they required lenders to give loans to unqualified borrowers which inevitably led to the "real estate bubble".
If that was true, how come she lost to a idiot.
Sanders would've lost even more...And he's not an idiot. Why do you say that? He graduated an Ivy League school and successfully made billions of dollars with people investing against him. That's not an idiot.
How would of Sanders lost even more? In head to head match ups/polling Sanders does better against Trump than Clinton, plus Sanders would of had bigger support from Independent and republican voters and lastly many people voted for Trump not cause the liked Trump, but because they hated Hillary more.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwDY2rO9lWM
Sanders would have definitely done worse. He wouldn't have won any republican voices because he was incredibly far left. He also was doing worse with minorities. Then he had no ads released against him. If he had had ads and Trump campaigned against him (rather then Clinton) he would've lost. He would have definitely been easier to beat.
Reading the comments, my only fear was that Sanders was too good. He played fair and honestly. Personally, and I would say unfortunately, I've come to the conclusion that it takes a cheater to beat a cheater. So I think chances were Sanders wouldn't be able to beat Trump, unless it was a fair fight, which I think it wasn't.Funny thing is I've seen the exact same scenario in the elections of a country that isn't smart enough to hide cheating. So I'm highly suspicious of the results of this election. "Silent voters"? Really? And of course they have to be from small groups in the unknown suburbs somewhere. A place where they can't easily be tracked back to.
And they come out "suddenly". Shady.
Yeah, not a fair fight!!! Shit is gonna get crazy, because people are retarded!!! Peace be w you..
My heart and Brains were with Bernie.
Hillary had a chance to win against the g. O. P. war machine, Bernie not.If you look it up, Hillary got more votes than Trump. Trump will be the 4th president to win the Electoral College after getting fewer votes than his opponent.As of early Wednesday morning, Clinton had 58,909,774 total votes compared to Trump’s 58,864,233, according to CBS News and CNN. The tallies will continue to change but Clinton holds a 47.6 percent lead compared to Trump’s 47.5 percent." www.ibtimes.com/who-won-popular-vote-latest-polls-show-hillary-clinton-ahead-donald-trump-despite-2444057
Actually he was, and if it wasn't for voter suppression and election fraud Sanders would of beaten Clinton in the Primaries.
Yes, he may have been able to win the primaries, but the general election would have been a repeat of Nixon-McGovern in 1972.
I only got about one-third of the way through the link and see that it is based on polling data. This election should have taught all of us about the unreliability of polling data.
Dont be so bitter... lol
I would have voted for a female Trump over a male Hillary, and so would most Trump voters. You should grow the fuck up and realize not all men are your enemy and not all women are your friends, this is toddler-level thinking you're displaying.
he's so old
