I think Bernie Sanders has a better chance of beating Donald Trump in a general election than Hillary does.
If you want you could start your arguments in the first round or just use them for acceptance.

Ok let's start off with some Delegates points I agree that trump should not lead the U.S. He is not a good leader but this debate is about how has the best shot at beating trump. Ok now lets go to the Delegates points Hillary Clinton is at 1,525 that is double the points than sanders with Sanders at 508 and by the way Trump is at 428 with 3 other people. So Clinton can beat trump.

Okay first of all its still the primary right now, I do not see hoe delegate count is relevant. And almost half of Hillary's delegates are super delegates, and that's both the edge she has over Sanders and Trump which will become irrelevant come the general. So your argument there is garbage.

"So Clinton can beat Trump." And so, that's not what we are debating, it's whether Bernie Sanders has a better chance of beating him or Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton being able to beat him does not mean she has a better chance of beating him. That's all almost irrelevant.

So my argument that Bernie Sanders has a better chance of beating her. Polling

Real clear politics collects all the credible polling sources and averages them. The current average has Hillary Clinton projected to win by 6.3%. That's a good margin so how does Sanders fare? http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

The average they have Sanders projected winning by 10%. That is a complete landslide and almost double the margin of Hillary Clinton, I am curious what your argument against this is. http://www.realclearpolitics.com...

Now the reasoning part, it is each candidates strength. Very short, what is the best strength of Hillary Clinton, states in the south U.S. The thing is, the republicans generally fair better there anyway. That advantage does not matter for her.

The strength of Bernie Sanders is the northeast more particularly states with a higher population of white people. Particularly younger people. This advantage is much more important than Clinton's in the south.

Ok Delegate's matter in the primaries that's how they get in the general election in the first place and I also think that Trump needs to be stopped and I don't think sanders has what it takes why well first of all Sanders does not care about women's rights and that is going to hurt him, and Clinton sticks up for women's rights. I agree with Trump about doing something about Immigration and something needs to be down about it and guess how could care less about it Sanders Clinton said that she would do something about this problem and she does this to a lot of the problems we have today and Clinton cares about the U.S people and she can take down Trump and win the White House back!!!!!

Yes delegates matter in the primaries they are virtually all that matters however we are right now debating about whether it is Clinton or Sanders who would have a better chance to defeat Trump.

You think Trump needs to be stopped and Sanders does not have what it takes but why? All the polls show that is complete nonsense and he has a good advantage over Republicans.

Sanders does not talk about women's rights? What the fu(k. This is a guy who categorizes himself as a feminist. Go to Berniesanders.com https://berniesanders.com..., and what is one of the categories.
Fighting for womens' rights. Yeah, he talks about women's rights.

Clinton cares, alright, about Wall St. money maybe but besides that, that is not what the debate is about. Everything you say is just pro Clinton babble, you have done 0 to show that if it was Sanders v.s Trump or Clinton v.s Trump Clinton would have a better chance.
