My latest Huffington Post essay on Clinton’s 2008 persona as “Pro-Gun Churchgoer” was recently quoted in The Atlantic, along with another anxiety to Obama job today’s anti-gun crusader “Annie Oakley.” Yes, Clinton has developed on federal gun legislation, along with Iraq, Keystone XL, a TPP, happy marriage, pot legislation, promulgation U.S. belligerent infantry to quarrel ISIS, and other quarrelsome issues. Like a new headline in The International Business Times states, “Hillary Clinton Flip-Flopping On Ground Troops To Fight ISIS? Before US Sends Troops To Iraq, Clinton Says No To Deployment After First Saying Yes.”
Clinton’s latest try during labeling Bernie Sanders a Ted Nugent of Democrats doesn’t usually omit his lifetime D-minus rating from a NRA; it illustrates fear. Sanders has once again surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, and when he wins both, could simply take South Carolina. With 3 initial losses, Clinton’s Southern “firewall” and hopes during a large Super Tuesday would be done, and a certain media coverage alone would propel Sanders via a primaries.
Then of course, wins in Iowa and New Hampshire would concentration courtesy on a reasons non-white Democrats via a South and a republic would opinion for Clinton. When some-more courtesy is paid to Clinton’s 3 a.m. ad opposite Obama, use of race and Islamophobia opposite Obama, and Congressman James Clyburn’s correlation of how both Clintons treated Obama in 2008, South Carolina will simply change to Sanders.
Boston’s Black Lives Matter President Daunasia Yancey referred to Clinton’s secular probity record as “abysmal.” The Clinton debate supposed income from prison lobbyists. In addition, for some different reason, Hillary Clinton waited almost 3 weeks to make a matter on Michael Brown’s genocide and Ferguson, notwithstanding a fact African Americans opinion around 90% for Democrats in presidential elections.
Nobody knows since Clinton waited so prolonged to make a matter on Ferguson.
When media coverage is given to Clinton’s record on competition and her 2008 debate opposite Obama (Sanders wins in Iowa and New Hampshire will lead to this coverage), early leads in South Carolina will collapse as quick as leads in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Like Barack Obama in 2008, Bernie Sanders is a distant some-more on-going and infallible claimant with measureless weed roots support. While 59% of American electorate believe Clinton is “not honest and trustworthy” and 51% of Americans have an adverse perspective of Clinton (one check cites 55% of voters), Bernie Sanders has positive favorability ratings. In fact, while both Donald Trump and Clinton are noticed in a disastrous demeanour by many people, Sanders is a usually heading presidential claimant with certain honesty and favorability ratings.
The only heading claimant in 2016 (Ted Cruz, like Trump and Clinton has a disastrous favorability rating) with certain favorability numbers is Bernie Sanders.
Think about that for a moment.
The claimant with a slightest volume of media coverage, and a claimant suspicion of as incompetent to win a ubiquitous choosing by some pundits (even yet he beats Trump in a “landslide of epic proportions”), is a usually claimant in 2016 with certain favorability numbers.
Hillary Clinton has disastrous favorability scores in 10 out 10 inhabitant polls according to HuffPost Pollster, with 7 polls indicating over 50% of Americans possess an “unfavorable” outlook of a former Secretary of State. Donald Trump also has disastrous favorability scores in 10 out of 10 inhabitant polls, one of a many similarities both share with one another.
In contrast, Bernie Sanders has certain favorability scores in 6 out of 10 inhabitant polls, with dual polls disposition disastrous by less than 3 points. This helps explain since Sanders was means to attract crowds totaling over 100,000 people, usually several months after announcing his bid for a presidency.
For these reasons, and a 3 reasons listed below, Bernie Sanders will better both Clinton and a billionaire xenophobe named Trump to win a presidency. He’ll also be means to grasp a overwhelming victory, essentially since even currently (without a advantage of Iowa and New Hampshire wins), Bernie Sanders “destroys” Trump in a ubiquitous choosing by 13 points.
When a 3 issues presented next erase a parable of karma from a Clinton campaign, and a vale audacity from Trump’s made code image, electorate will elect Sanders in a landslide.
1. Bernie Sanders continues to swell in a polls, notwithstanding removing 1/23 a radio coverage of Donald Trump, and though Clinton’s concept name recognition. Imagine when Bernie wins Iowa and New Hampshire, and a idea of Clinton’s inevitability, along with fears regarding to Bernie’s inability to win, are shattered.
Despite a miss of media coverage and other obstacles, Sanders has achieved record-breaking fundraising totals, as illustrated in a Huffington Post piece patrician Bernie Sanders Becomes a First Presidential Candidate to Reach Two Million Individual Campaign Contributions: In 2008, Obama Had Just One Million:
Tonight, Bernie Sanders perceived a final dollars he indispensable to mangle a ancestral milestone. The senator strictly strike dual million particular debate contributions, a attainment that no other U.S. presidential claimant has achieved during this indicate in an election.
To put that series in context, Barack Obama’s ancestral 2008 debate managed to mangle usually one million contributions. Sanders literally has twice what Obama had. Not usually that, though Sanders reached dual million faster than President Obama reached one.
Sanders was means to mangle Obama’s annals though large media courtesy and widespread name recognition. He also had a Democratic investiture scheduling debates in Clinton’s favor. Imagine what happens after dual initial wins.
2. Remember a check saying Americans won’t opinion for a socialist? Well, Bernie Sanders isn’t a Fox News socialist, he’s a Democratic Socialist like Theodore Roosevelt and FDR. Iowa and New Hampshire wins, along with widespread media coverage, will prominence this fact.
Nothing exemplifies Bernie Sanders apropos a modern-day Theodore Roosevelt like Robert Reich’s latest piece in The Huffington Post patrician The Big Short and Bernie’s Plan to Bust Up Wall Street:
Most importantly, a film shows since Bernie Sanders’s devise to mangle adult a biggest banks and return a Glass-Steagall Act (separating investment from blurb banking) is required — and since Hillary Clinton’s some-more medium devise is inadequate.
…More than a century ago, Teddy Roosevelt pennyless adult a Standard Oil Trust since it acted a risk to a U.S. economy. Today, Wall Street’s biggest banks poise an even incomparable danger. They’re distant incomparable than they were before a pile-up of 2008.
Like Joseph Stiglitz, Nouriel Roubini, and others, Reich agrees with Bernie Sanders on Wall Street reform. Reich also states that Bernie’s devise is “necessary,” while Clinton’s “more medium devise is inadequate.”
3. Vice President Joe Biden’s regard of Bernie Sanders highlights a categorical disproportion between Sanders and Clinton, and explains since Sanders would simply better a GOP challenger for a presidency.
A new CNN article patrician Biden praises Sanders on income inequality, calls Clinton ‘relatively new’ to a fight, highlights accurately since usually Bernie Sanders will residence a constructional issues plaguing a U.S. economy:
“Bernie is vocalization to a emotional that is low and real. And he has credit on it,” Biden pronounced during an speak with CNN arch domestic researcher Gloria Borger.
“It’s comparatively new for Hillary to speak about that,” Biden continued…
“Hillary’s concentration has been other things adult to now, and that’s been Bernie’s — no one questions Bernie’s flawlessness on those issues,” he said.
Wealth inequality is a vital emanate in both parties and 63% of Americans according to Gallup trust “money and resources placement is unfair.” In further to so many other differences, “authenticity” separates Sanders, from both Trump and Clinton.
Iowa and New Hampshire will be remembered perpetually as a dual states that ushered in a new epoch of American politics, one where Bernie Sanders will obey Teddy Roosevelt and conflict a “malefactors of good wealth” to urge opposite destiny financial collapses and unconstrained troops quagmires. After these initial wins for Bernie Sanders, a media will finally burst on a bandwagon, heading to a landslide attainment for Sanders in 2016.
The 3 reasons above (as good as a probability of a FBI finale Clinton’s debate with destiny revelations) simulate an undercurrent of support that will turn a national materialisation after Iowa and New Hampshire. we explain since I’m only voting for Bernie Sanders in this 60 second YouTube segment. In my new coming on The Thom Hartmann Program, we explain since Bernie Sanders will turn president.
