Sanders Beats All Top Republican Candidates In Latest Poll


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, is gaining steam against top Republican rivals, according to a national Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

In a hypothetical matchup against the current GOP front-runner, business mogul Donald Trump, Sanders takes 49 percent of the vote to Trump's 41 percent. Against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Sanders leads 44 percent to 43 percent. He also beats Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by 10 percentage points and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson by 6 points.


Sanders still going strong! Oh it gets better. Read on.


Fifty-nine percent of voters also say Sanders is honest and trustworthy -- placing him well above former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his chief rival for the Democratic nomination, and above all top Republican candidates tested in the poll.


Feel the BERN! Like I've said for a while, Bernie is my guy. I'm voting for him. I'm glad more and more of the country is coming around to him. I'm also glad that they see him as more trustworthy than Clinton. If Clinton loses her front runner spot to Bernie, the Republicans will lose most of their rhetoric about trustworthiness.

This is all a dream.
We are dreaming and we allow ourselves this fantasy, for some reason.

It would be great if Sanders won, just like it would've been great if Ron Paul had won.

We all know whats going to happen. I think everyone, no matter what their leanings are, knows what is going to happen.

We just want to live in this fantasy dreamworld for as long as possible though.

But deep down inside, you and I both know who the next president of the united states is going to be

My mom watches CNN, I just overheard them say Trump was leading? meh…

its neck and neck folks… dowwnnn to the wire!

But in the end Trump will still fly the NEO coop, giving the support he stole from the GOP to Hillary.

Thats someone else's prediction at the start of this "campaign season", but its still on the table…

Unfortunately your right, the other candidates are given just enough leash for the illusion of choice. Clinton for dems, looking like Rubio for Republicans. Clinton will win

Sanders and Trump are both going to fade away. Nobody is serious at this point; we're just entertaining ourselves. Once it gets serious we'll choose the normal bozos we always do because the fact is, we don't want that much change.

Remember when Jesse Jackson actually got some delegates? Even he was fooled. he said, "Somethin's happenin' in this land!"

No, there wasn't. We were just kidding, and even the candidate bought off on it.

I suppose that would be better than Clinton because I think Bernie might be somewhat honest, however, the things he is honest about are his ultra-left leanings. He won't be a centrist by any means and will simply keep the country divided and angry.

I still think Clinton is the ordained choice of the NWO this election cycle, but Sanders would serve the NWO well by eroding our Constitution, implementing their socialist agenda and keeping everyone divided.

That doesn't surprise me at all. But Bernie's real trouble isn't the GOP anyway. It's having to beat Hillary that's the real challenge. She's got all the insiders and establishment pulling for her plus some of the people. Bernie needs all the people gunning for him to make it past the establishment.

Yawn.

What exactly does the Burn offer that should make me at all excited about him?

Let me guess, free stuff...

IMHO better him than Hillary. Maybe I can vote Dem. again. During this administration I have been left speechless at the actions and in some cases the lack of actions that the POTUS done. I despise Bush less than Obama,just a little.

As the war drums grow louder and louder with the neocon military industrial corporate complex in complete control; sorry, Bernie just isn't in the equation.

Jeb on the other hand will be the wartime president....it's an established pattern. All this macho tough guy BS by Trump is just setting the stage for the Varsity players. The neocons....They have just been in the background training and gaining strength for the big game.

If you really wanted to answer that question honestly you'd simply look it up yourself. That info is all available online.

But it's much easier to stay uninformed and just make lame comments so you chose to do that instead it seems.

In Late 2007, Obama Trailed Clinton By 26 Points. Bernie Sanders Is 2016's Barack Obama


Before the Iowa Caucus in December of 2007, Pew Research reported that Barack Obama was 26 points behind Hillary Clinton. In the "Democratic Horse Race," Hillary Clinton enjoyed 48% support while Obama was stuck at 22%. According to Gallup in late 2007, Hillary Clinton held a commanding lead over Senator Obama:

Gallup's 2007 national presidential polling strongly points to Clinton winning the 2008 Democratic nomination. Barring something unusual or otherwise unexpected, she is well positioned for the 2008 Democratic primaries.

Clinton has led the Democratic pack in every Gallup Poll conducted between November 2006 and October 2007. For most of this time, Clinton has led Obama by a double-digit margin.

Clinton's lead over Obama has expanded to nearly 30 points in Gallup's latest poll, conducted Oct. 12-14: 50% vs. 21%.

Of course, we all know that because of a lead that expanded to nearly 30 points, there was little chance for Obama to win at that point. If anything, the words "Clinton has led the Democratic pack in every Gallup Poll conducted between November 2006 and October 2007" should have meant that only one candidate was electable, or capable of winning the primaries.


Just saying.

Promoting the General Welfare is part of the Constitution.

Why must you guys cry 'socialist agenda'?

We should also keep in mind that while polls may reflect the popular vote, the popular vote doesn't always coincide with how they electoral college swings. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Bernie either way though.

Naturally, but things are looking promising. Though because of what you said, I also am not fully committed yet. Bernie is my guy, but he has a lot of obstacles to overcome even with his positive polling.

Hey I'm with you. I'm feeling the bern. But Hillary has some big players on her side and to beat them takes a massive voter support like we've never had before. I'm just not sure if "the people" truly care enough anymore to take that stand or not.
