A recent National Poll shows that Sanders would beat all 3 Republicans in a hypothetical GE by wide

margins, whereas Clinton would lose to Rubio and Cruz. This repeats the same findings of old polls.

Another national poll showed that 48% of Republicans would not vote for Trump in a
hypothetical General Election.

It looks like both Trump and Clinton would probably win in the primaries, but lose in the
General Election. Apparently, many Republicans are sick and tired of the RNC, and they,
like their Democratic counterparts, are also demanding reform and change in their Party.

This, of course, brings up the question: Should people with such childish temperaments be

senators at all? Don't the American people deserve better than that?

Elizabeth Warren shows weakneses of Hillary Clinton's Wall Street Connection Defense. She also

maintains that many laws against economic crimes already exist, but the Administration
personnel rarely apply them strongly enough to the businesses that break those laws.

Elizabeth also points out clearly that, unlike Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders has not
accepted a single cent from business corporations and private interests. This is not a
direct endorsement of Bernie for the presidency, but it does show clearly whose side
she is on. I don't know why she has not yet openly endorsed Bernie, but I assume
she has her reasons.

This is a highly interesting article covering several important points.

What about all the dirty tricks against Sanders carried out by Debbie Schultz of DNC to

make him lose and help Clinton win? And Debbie stops at nothing. She behaves like
a Republican.

Don't senators and congresspeople have a lot more entertainment to do than average households?

He is more of an FDR New Deal Democrat than most DNC members, and they don't like that.

Hillary Supporters need to be more realistic. I think she will lose the GE. Just look at the

large numbers of voters who simply can't trust her. Here's one link:

Just Google: "Voters Do Not Trust Hillary Clinton", and you will find 4.5 million other articles.

Edit: Sorry! But that's the way it is. I don't believe anything will change this.

Yes. The Democrats are not one single monolith. We are made up of 3 main sub-groups:

1. Those who are in control of the DNC and think of themselves as the Democratic Elites. They consider themselves
to be the only reasonable middle-of-the-road group, and are the only ones who hold all the power. They have no objection to accepting financial aid from the Corporate Power people, and thus cannot remain free of being influenced by the Corporate Business people. They seem quite willing for our Government to maintain its present status quo (where the rich are getting richer, and the middle-class is gradually disappearing, and the poor are becoming still poorer)

2. The Progressives/Liberals, who are against coming under any financial influence whatsoever from the Corporations. These are the ones who are totally sick and tired of the corruption of the past several decades. They want complete
change. They especially want to root out the bribery and corruption which has been plaguing our government the past several decades, and their claim is that we have become morally degenerate as a nation and sinking further and further
down into the gutter. Their numbers are growing rapidly,

And these two groups are vying for dominance right now.

3. A composite of various small groups that have too few members to carry any political clout.

Divided and troubled as the Democrats are, the situation of the Republicans appear to be at least as bad, if not worse.
They aren't a monolith either. The Dem. Elites know that their days of milking the cows on both sides of the fence might
eventually be coming to an end with Bernie in the WH and Elizabeth in the Senate. That is why they are doing all the can to help Hillary to win. I think the numbers of Dems. rooting for Bernie are already larger than those for Hillary, and his supporters are growing in size by the day. We'll have to be patient a little longer to see who the winner will

There are so many different political stances held on firmly by the Repubs. that are harmful to the American people in
general. Examples: Universal health, free tuition at public universities, $15 minimum wage, Social Security expansion ... ad infinitum. Democratic senators and representatives can be talking about how beneficial it would be to their constituents,
if they should become the law of the land.

The Republicans are actually asking for their own throats to be cut by making these stupid demands that make life
more difficult for their constituents. Democratic Congress people have so many points to talk about. They should go
into these points extremely thoroughly, and bring up as many of them as necessary to reach their goal of winning
over the Republican masses, who have been lied to and misinformed by Fox News and other such media for decades.

Here are golden opportunities to set things aright. All the Dems. have to do is to reach out and take them.
