He has a chance, but I won't vote for him.
Very small chance.
Bernie Sanders sides with the american voter on almost every topic unless you happen to disagree with him on a few social issues that he wouldn't have control over anyways as president. Many democrats are willing to vote for him in the primaries and I assume that if he wins the primaries he will win the election due to the strong majority of electoral college points the democrats have in their non swing states
Of course. The fact that every republican network and runner (Fox NEWS and other Presidential candidates) all focus on Hillery, all the left and impediments go to Bernie, and not Hillery. She is simply a smoke and mirror of the real threat to the Republicans. The fact there are so many, and arguably more in later times, Right Wings running, it divides many people into candidates while many funnel to Hillery or Bernie.
Slim, but not impossible. Especially if Hillary continues to become less popular as she often does around elections.
If Elizabeth Warren, the stronger candidate for a liberal economic position, will not run, Sanders is the only choice left unless Hillary suddenly develops a spine. So long as she continues to assume she is the chosen one and runs a protective campaign, she is very vulnerable and may lead to the curse of Bush or one of the 12 dwarves.
Very little chance
if the people that support bernie all help out and do their part, he can win.
He is polling very well, but my guess is Hillary will move further left in the primary and win the nomination.
She knows too well how to manipulate the liberal voter base. Bernie just isnt as sly.
Hillary's stupid views will be ignored because she's a woman
The only thing he will really accomplish is to bring Hillary even further into the left than she is now. Not sure thats entirely a good thing.
No, obviously the 67% saying yes know nothing about the American people. according to the polls, most americans think the economy is the most important issue in 2016. At the same time, a strong majority of Americans are fiscally conservative. Sanders is very vocal about his socialism and it will not fly. He has a lot of DEMOCRAT supporters, but what about White, Bllack, Latino, Men, Women, Catholic, and Protestants?
If a left leaning candidate is going to win, I'd hope Bernie Sanders would be it. However, I don't think the odds are with him-- I think Hillary Clinton is going to (unfortunately) win. Reasons: 1. she is more of a household name than Sanders, and 2. she will take over the demographic votes (women, racial minorities, young people, LGBT, etc. all seem to favor her).
Why do people have to come here first and steal all my thoughts?
Bernie is not polling well, and people who think that he is are lying to themselves. Sanders is polling well in ONE state, New Hampshire, right next door to his home state of Vermont, and then thats it. In Iowa Hillary still has 3x more support than Sanders does, and in South Carolina, BIDEN has 3x more support than Sanders, and Clinton has 12x more support. Sanders does not have a shot at winning the presidency OR the nomination. (Source is RealClearPolitics polling data)
His voter base is primarily white male millennials (think a Democratic Ron Paul), and he'll struggle to expand it. Hillary is virtually unbeatable in the primary thanks to her deep pockets, high approval and total name recognition, and Bernie thus has no chance of winning the election.
