Democrats to debate, UC polls Sanders over Clinton

The News Record conducted a poll asking the University of Cincinnati’s choice for the next presidential candidate. Among Democrats, Senator Bernie Sanders, I-VT, won 72.9 percent of the vote while former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received 21.5 percent of support.

The poll did not include Vice President Joe Biden, who has not declared his candidacy.

12. Millennials I presume.

I bet they think they won't have to pay back all those college loans once Bernie cancels all those trillions in student debt.

Seriously every other first world nation has a better public education system, but fuck that I had to pay (much much less than today) so fuck them they should to. That'll teach 'em, that lazy millennial crowd.

Yeah?

2. Sanders’ only formal proposal is his College for All Act of 2015.......

Umm.. I thought he had other proposals???

....

Sanders’ only formal proposal is his College for All Act of 2015. The Independent Senator calls for all four-year public universities to be free. His plan outlines a 0.5 percent tax increase on stock trades, 0.1 percent on bonds and 0.005 percent on derivatives.

Both Clinton and O’Malley have also addressed college affordability, however both of the candidates want to tackle student debt and regulate tuition price hikes.

3. I'm thinking that was a mistake...maybe his only 'formal' proposal around college

 

affordability, which is mentioned earlier in the article as the students #1 issue.

of payment should be a mix of financial industry tax and fees, and cuts to the military.

down. That's all I've heard, if anyone has more, please let me know.

38. Is that a direct quote? Even as a rhetorical summation it is highly inaccurate.

Bringing down the cost of education reflected in tuition fees is a good first step, at which point the tuition made free would be less expensive thst currently proposed.

Tuition inflation is a primary proximate cause of soaring and unmanageable and enslaving student debt. What goes up can come down.

Evolution, not revolution.

13. I'm fairly certain that the last two remaining

will be HRC and J!. Frankly, I'm a Bernie fan, so I'm hoping that he will continue to amaze the country and be the candidate. But if not, I won't ever ever ever vote for a Bush or do anything to make that possible. If your only option is to sit it out, have at it, but I won't.

She tends to do that because it polls well.

And it helps run out the clock.

22. Lots of time left, much can change.

I'm know that I shouldn't look for the inevitable, but I battle between my ideology and reality. And as we all know, there is the unknown Joe (who, like Lancelot, could sweep in to the picture).

Still and all, it won't be a Bush. I may only have one vote, but it won't be for a Bush.

notwithstanding the fact that probably most of those polled are millennials.

That's how valid, or invalid, that poll is.
