College debt relief is definity high on middle class families, or potential families list. Continuing to make health more afford, too. More decent paying job especially at the lower middle class level.

Yeah, I sure wish President Obama had left the public option on the table... but...

there still is a back door way to get to it.
Yes, it will take more time at first.. The ACA allows a state (along w other experiments in health care delivery/costs ) to try the Public Oppotion!

I believe Vermont is in the process of working this up. Bernie

It's a possibility because that's how it started in Canada; in one of it's Provinces!
When people started seeing g how good it was- dominoes falling on private health care.

No, I was referring to the heads-up matchup polling that consistently showed Sanders doing much better against Republican candidates.

As we explained over and over, don't put too much stock in early polling that puts party vs party and the candidates haven't even been chosen. Sanders never truly got vetted. And saying that that polling shows a big swing left and that socialism is now acceptable is a huge leap.

Give credence to the polls that show your preferred remaining candidate doing well.

You can't put too much stock in those 'other' polls.

Come on now, I've been very consistent on my positions with polls and haven't posted any polls in here trying to backup any view.

You're only invalidating those polls because they don't fit your narrative of Clinton being the stronger candidate. That's it.

You can either accept polling as a science or ignore it all completely. You can't just pick and choose. The only information we have is the polling that says Sanders probably would have done better against Trump and there's no other evidence to say otherwise. Accept it and realize that the Democrats threw away a blowout victory in order to honor someone they've done so much for yet have received so little in return.

Bernie couldn't even beat crooked, lyin', has-been Hillary. He wasn't even close. All he's ever had to do is convince a few white people in liberal Vermont to vote for him every 6 years after he fled Brooklyn.

How could he hope to take on the GOP?

Stop with comparing the primaries to the general election. It's apple to oranges. You're automatically saying Trump is the best possible Republican candidate in the general election if that's your logic.

"How is Clinton supposed to win the Electoral College when she has no prayer to even win Washington state because Bernie crushed her there?"

See? It's fucking stupid.

I've never played pick and choose with polls, that's my point.

You blindly pick the polls that feed your narrative, you never looked at the fact that he's an unknown compared to the rest of the field, that he was never really vetted by media or other candidates. In that same group of polling that you kept bragging about that showed Sanders doing better against Trump head to head also had Clinton beating Sanders when it was just them head to head, so explain that science...

What is there to explain? Clinton consistently fared better in the primary polls than Sanders and defeated him in the primaries as expected. What does that have to do with how they would fare in the general election?

It's rather disturbing just how many of you can't wrap your heads around the simple logic that a smaller group of voters in a given party's primary doesn't reflect what will happen on a national stage when far more are casting ballots.

We had people making those exact statements during the primary, such as Headache arguing that the Democrats would lose Florida if Bernie were the nominee because he lost badly there to Clinton.

Some of those discrepancies were within the same polls, same audience.
