WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR BERNIE SANDERS TO BEAT HILLARY?

In a recent piece on MSNBC, Bernie Sanders answered “YES” to the question of whether or not he could beat Hillary Clinton. He followed by implying that her closeness with the corporate world would push voters in his direction. When Clinton welcomed the support of a Super PAC, Sanders quickly backed away saying he won’t have outside groups like this in his campaign. So far Mr. Progressive is right on but that also defines the needs of the Bernie Sanders campaign. Individual, Progressive grass-roots voters who can cough up some bucks to put this man in the White House. Corporate America will come through for Hillary because they need her support if she becomes President. And I don’t have to tell you what these Super PACS can produce. In an earlier post I identified some 30 million Progressives out there, another 40 million Democrats that aren’t necessarily Progressive but certainly don’t want another Republican in the White House. Sen. Sanders won’t be able to garner all 70 million but the question is what does Clinton’s huge base think now since Bernie Sanders entered the race. If enough think he is the better candidate, and polls will be telling us that soon, the Vermont Senator could be on his way to the White House.

  1. Wouldn't that be amazing, if Bernie could accomplish this? I fear the big money and it usually spells doom for independent candidates. But, he hasn't been a “back-seater” by anyone's standards, so, just maybe, we will be very pleasantly surprised.
