|Sanders Warren ticket|
One voter said Clinton is “bought and paid for,” another said he wouldn’t vote for Clinton unless Elizabeth Warren was on the ticket. Yet one more said the “dream” ticket would be Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Those are three viewpoints that do indicate a definite preference, but don’t demonstrate a voting population that would stay home from the polls without Bernie. And they shouldn’t. All you need to confirm this is to look at who leads the GOP ticket. Donald Trump.
If you want that maniac in office, or for that matter, any of his fellow candidates, especially Ted Cruz, then stay home on November 8. Most agree that “…a low-energy, low-turnout election in November would be disastrous for Democrats,” according to the Washington Times. Jeff Weaver, Sanders campaign manager, feels his candidate is the one to wake up new progressive candidates and bring them out in November.
RootsAction.org says, “The head of one of the two big political parties in the United States is trying to manipulate the presidential election process by limiting direct debate and tilting the national party apparatus in favor of one candidate. This is unacceptable,” A Democratic county chairman in Iowa, Jason Frerichs agrees. Debbie Wasserman Schultz was co-chair of Hillary’s campaign in 2008. There’s no doubt she’s putting her fingers on the scale, limiting the number of sanctioned debates,” Mr. Frerichs said.
And now Michael Bloomberg says he might run if Hillary Clinton isn’t nominated. Looking at Bernie Sanders momentum and his recent surge in the polls, don’t think the Bern will worry, although Bloomberg could take away some votes.
