If he gets elected, and actually signs off on/passes bills.. even the impure ones.. that's hard fought for and passed by the Democratic Party members in Congress.. my opinion of his fitness to be our party's representative for the office will change.

I don't think he'll win the primary, but he may.

I really don't think he'd win the GE if he does win our primary, but I didn't think Trump would win in 2016 either, so I'm not exactly a grand seer about such things.

Even if he does become our candidate, and does win the Presidency, I think he'd be an abysmal failure getting nothing at all done because the things he wants.. there is NO potential version of congress that would pass it anywhere close to the level he's promised.. so he'll either royally disappoint his base by compromising like a good president, or he'll be a horrendous failure that will deliver a Republican wave of victories that will make the 2016 results look tepid in comparison.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:

My issue isn't one of "liking"... brooklynite Feb 2020 #3

Nobody is gonna win in a landslide. oldsoftie Feb 2020 #7
Nope. See the poll. LakeArenal Feb 2020 #9
No, because my opinion is that he's rigid and dismissive of people who don't agree with him.nt pnwmom Feb 2020 #10
It's a moot point. It isn't possible for Bernie to win in the GE, let alone in a landslide. scheming daemons Feb 2020 #11
I still won't like him. The Velveteen Ocelot Feb 2020 #12
I don't dislike Senator Bernie Sanders. Sloumeau Feb 2020 #13
did your opinion of Trump improve because he won the election? Fresh_Start Feb 2020 #14
Not going to be the nominee option? Watchfoxheadexplodes Feb 2020 #15
This is a hypothetical poll Tiggeroshii Feb 2020 #16
Yes. Most of the reason I oppose him is on the basis of electability MaryMagdaline Feb 2020 #17
