Bernie Sanders catching up to Hillary in California! Clinton's lead has shrunk to two points!

Bernie Sanders catching up to Hillary in California: poll
By Mary Kay Linge
New York Post
April 24, 2016


Hillary Clinton’s lead over rival Bernie Sanders in California has shrunk to two points, bringing to a screeching halt any momentum she hoped to gain from her 16-point win in New York.

The Fox poll out Friday night showed Sanders surging in the Golden State, where two earlier April polls had him 6 and 12 points behind.

Clinton has the support of 48 percent of those likely to vote in the state’s Democratic primary on June 7, the survey found, while 46 percent favor the Vermont senator.

18. The chosen image of HRC is deliberate. It shows her with upper Sanpaku: murders and psychopaths.

.


The choice of images was done on purpose to project the negative imagery of mental imbalance.

This OP should be taken down.

mmmmmmm

If you don't know the difference between ISIS and Black Lives Matter I suggest you do some serious study on those organizations before flapping your jaw.

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/2016_presidential_race.html

Clinton's numbers have been steadily slipping, while Bernie has been holding firm. If Hillary is chosen, Republicans only need a reasonably likable candidate to win the general election.

The country is ready for a real progressive like Bernie.

9. Hillary's support has been consistently in the high 40s since September there

I don't see her losing any support. If she gains a few more points she wins the state outright.

12. I know. But it prevents the "Sanders wins California" headline that Sanders supporters want so much.

She only needs to hold 40% there to keep Sanders at bay. I think she'll do that easily.

31. It was posted in the newspaper story.

 


It's probably a photo of Hillary screaming at one of her grouplet campaign meetings.

That's my guess.

I agree with you.

In fact, I'll take it a step farther.

DOUBLE SHAME ON THEM and all in caps!

15. This Primary shit has dragged on too long and then there will be GE .. I'm over it. They need to >

 

shorten this circus. Just have primaries twice and then the election and then let's get this over with. I suppose the networks and advertisement establishment love this shit. They make mucho bucks off of it. Again I've answered my own question.

16. Bernie will win in California. I say this as a Californian.

Over and over again members of the national Democratic establishment show up in Beverly Hills to attend fundraisers and in tv studios to appear on talk shows, but only rarely do they make any effort to connect with ordinary people. They take the support of the Democratic voters, most of whom are working people just trying to get by, for granted. Bernie has a message that resonates with people out here. College students know they are being screwed over with hign costs and big loans. The economic inequality Bernie speaks of is magnified here, where 1 million dollar homes are routinely torn down to make room for 5 and 10 million dollar homes, while millions struggle to pay the high rent in small apartments. Our sea life is threatened by oil spills and pollution. Our large cities, LA and San Diego in particular, have a serious lack of adequate mass transit. Our infrastructure is a mess. The plight of the homeless is largely ignored. The need to address immigration reform is urgent.

Bernie is the only candidate forcefully addressing the core quality of life issues that matter to Californians. He has our backs. We'll have his in June.

17. Some Californians might remember UC being tuition-free.

It's not some pie-in-the-sky, never-going-to-happen political unicorn. We actually had it before Reagan, and it worked.

22. I attended Cal Poly from 1981-1984 and I paid tuition. It wasn't that much per unit but I paid it.

So I can attest that there was tuition being charged as well as other fees during the period from Jan 1981- June 1984 that I attended.

So I wouldn't be so quick to call it a win based on your anecdotal information.

Before he got destroyed in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Plus, there aren't enough rural conservative areas in this state for him to win and that is what he relies on mostly.

29. It's time for young Bernie supporters in Cali

to start talking to their parents about why he is the one they should vote for if they want a better future for their kids. It's the old fogies in this country who are dragging their feet and blocking the changes we need to grow this country and help it's people.

I know it's not all old fogies. I'm an old fogey and there are a lot of us here cheering on Bernie. But apparently we are a unique group.

news from tv or the print newspaper. They're only getting the corporate slant. Change is coming, but not fast enough.
