Mayor Pete shat the bed with his vaccine persona/religious exemption stance so he's had to walk that back this morning to only medical exemptions. I have a zero tolerance policy on this issue.

The Attorney General committed perjury before Congress. What an Honest Broker.

That's what I'm saying. He was a contributing factor to Clinton's loss instead of being a contributing factor to her win.
Clinton won the popular vote, she lost the electoral vote of 3 states by 76,000 votes total. So it did not take much to tip the balance.

The timing of the Comey letter/announcement was a huge hit.
The ongoing russian meddling obviously swayed the public opinion for months on demonizing Clinton and lifting Trump.
Lets not forget that it was found that much of the Russian targeting was of Bernie Sanders supporters, in order to sow as much discord between the two Dem candidates as possible.
Sanders should have dropped out of the primary earlier. Plain and simple. He did not have a path and instead of doing what was best for the party (that he doesn't actually belong to) he got angry, and he whipped up his supporters more, all the way to the convention.
Hell, it took a comedian, Sarah Silverman, to address the Sanders supporters and tell them not to be idiots and to get behind the candidate. Something Sanders never did in any believable way.
So yes, his actions at the at time absolutely had a negative effect on Clinton.

I see the same thing shaping up now. If he is in the top 3 during the primary, he will go all the way again, because no doubt, it will have been "rigged" by the establishment, blah, blah, blah.

A hearing about how Barr lied that report says there was "NO COLLUSION" and Li'l Lindsay comes out and says the same thing.

I'm actually looking very forward to Klobuchar and Harris. Klobuchar asked him specific questions during his confirmation that he said would be considered obstruction. The report shows Trump did those things. So this will be fun.

The polls showed Clinton was going to win by a landslide.

You don't.

I'm just saying that using polls to proclaim that Sanders would have won is not exactly a fair exercise whatsoever, specifically in relation to 2016.
