Why Bernie Sanders’s Momentum Is Not Built to Last! Future POTUS – Hillary Clinton!

Advocating an extreme Left-Wing Agenda To Extreme Left Wingers and drawing crowds doesn’t win General Elections. Bernie Sanders is a good man but he cannot win against the Koch Brothers Republican Machine. There is only ONE DEMOCRAT that can keep the White House after President Obama and that is Hillary Clinton. Before the Naysayers attack me, read the entire article, gain some perspective and hopefully, you would see the rational.

For those that do research look at George McGovern in 1972 and Walter Mondale in 1984.


Love her or hate her, Hillary Clinton is going to be America’s Next and First Woman President!

[NYT] Bernie Sanders is surging. He trailed Hillary Rodham Clinton by as much as 50 points in the polls a few months ago, but he has pulled within 10 points in New Hampshire, according to some surveys. He has doubled his support in Iowa over the last month. The signs of his support are palpable: Last week, about 10,000 people attended an event in Madison, Wis., and he announced that he raised $15 million in the first three months of his campaign.


But the Sanders surge is about to hit a wall: the rank and file of the Democratic primary electorate.


Senator Sanders is now doing nearly as well as Barack Obama did among liberal voters in 2008. That makes him competitive in relatively liberal contests, like the Iowa caucuses or the New Hampshire primary.


But Mrs. Clinton still holds a huge lead among moderate and conservative Democrats — white and nonwhite alike. Whether Mr. Sanders can close the gap among these voters will determine the seriousness of his candidacy and whether he can pick up more delegates in other primaries. There aren’t many reasons to expect he will break through, and he certainly isn’t doing it yet.


If he doesn’t, he will lose by a wide margin.


Mr. Sanders surged as he consolidated the liberal voters who represent the natural opposition to Mrs. Clinton. A socialist senator from Vermont, he was always well positioned to be the vehicle of their skepticism of Mrs. Clinton’s policies on Wall Street and foreign intervention.



But he is unlikely to beat her by a wide margin among liberal voters. Even in 2008, Mr. Obama defeated Mrs. Clinton among liberal voters by just one percentage point nationwide. He lost liberals by one point in New Hampshire, and won them by 13 points in Iowa.


Mr. Sanders is nearing those tallies. On average, polls in Iowa and New Hampshire over the last month show Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders tied among self-identified liberals. Last week, a Quinnipiac poll in Iowa showed him leading Mrs. Clinton among “very liberal” voters, 47 to 43 percent.


Mr. Sanders could hope to do even better than Mr. Obama among liberals, but realistically there are limits. Mrs. Clinton is a liberal Democrat by any measure. Her favorability ratings among “very liberal” voters remain very good; the Quinnipiac poll, for instance, put them at 88 percent favorable and 8 percent unfavorable. Her advantage among women also helps. And this is leaving aside any of the other plausible reasons — electability, experience — for preferring Mrs. Clinton.
