Had he not been shafted by team Hillikileaks, we could very well have been calling him President-elect Bernie Sanders today - in my opinion, he would have beaten Trump in both EC and popular vote.
I think Bernie would have seen a better turnout than Hillary. However, his inability to address the violence coming from his supporters, his talk of democratic socialism, his pandering to BLM and the social justice agenda, and his empty idealist promises like free college for all, would have ultimately yielded a defeat by Trump.
It would have been close, though.

The question should be raised: Why all of a sudden are you so vocal about your opinion now Bernie? Why only after the election is over?
I supported Sanders until he dropped/sold out. And I'm of the opinion that he pulled, for lack of better term, a bitch move by endorsing Hillary. After that, how can anyone give his input merit?

I think the important question is, where's Hillary Clinton, to settle her paid supporters?
For the scenes that we're seeing in America right now, the only ones responsible for them are the mainstream media. They will pay for it, sooner or later

Many on the right view progressives as their enemies. But try to understand: many of us you would paint with the progressive brush never supported the Clintons, NAFTA, Clintonomics, etc, disagreed strongly with how they detrimentally impacted workers in America, never saw Clinton or Obama's actions as "progressive," but in actuality corporatist in progressive clothes, and wanted to get big money out of politics just as many conservatives do.
It was that part of the left - which the Clintons and the rest of the DNC establishment saw as fringe and irrelevant and having no chance - that nearly nominated Bernie Sanders... and then (at least in part) stayed home or even switched on November 8.
