Hodgkinson may have pulled the trigger but Hillary aimed the gun...

If Hillary and Co. had not tilted the primary playing field, Bernie would have won the nomination and if had, there is little doubt he would have beaten Trump.

On Wednesday, I wrote about what Hillary Clinton said this week and what she did not say, discussing the reasons she lost the 2016 presidential election. Today, let's consider a far more interesting and important question than why Clinton lost, which is why Bernie Sanders would have won.

It is a fact that for well over a year, match-up polls showed that Sanders would have defeated Trump by substantial margins. Favorability polls have similarly and consistently showed Sanders to have substantially higher approval and favorable ratings than Trump.

Trump won the election because of narrow margins in three Rust Belt states where Sanders’ working-class politics is popular and appealing. While Trump remains a highly divisive and unpopular figure (along with Clinton), Sanders continues to rank as the most popular politician in America. In addition, polls during the primary season consistently showed Sanders handily defeating Trump by 10 points or more, while Clinton led the billionaire by only a few points on average.

Wrong answer. America isn't going to go socialist with Venezuela so close and a prime example of how Socialism fails everywhere it is implemented.

They don't give a damn about that.

If people only had a rudimentary understanding of history, it would make a discussion of Venezuela meaningful. Socialism.....now that is funny.

What's even funnier is to ask anyone who cries "Socialism, socialism!" at every turn to define it.
