48. Because he as close to FDR as we have. I agree with his policies. NOT because he leads in GE polls.

IOW, NOT because he is a 'winner'. (For a long time I supported Bernie when he was not the leader in GE polls and would not change my support if Hillary became the leader.)

The republican base is apparently attracted to 'winners'. I prefer liberals if given a choice. On a liberal scale of 0-10, Trump is a 0 (Pat Buchanan with more hair), Hillary a 7 (good on immigration, climate change, social policies, etc.), Bernie a 10 (good at all that and more).
