Though Bernie Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton in Washington, Alaska, and Hawaii, with 73%, 82%, and 71% of the vote, respectively, his loss (due to election fraud?) in New York has made his campaign a real long shot. Today’s guest Musa al-Gharbi says that’s bad news for Democrats, because Hillary has exactly zero chance of winning a general election against Trump, while Bernie at least has a chance.
Al-Gharbi explains why in his article “Hillary Clinton Will Lose to Donald Trump“:
“What matters for the general election is who can win swing states and ensure high voter turnout and enthusiasm in solidly blue states…”
Perhaps even more important is that Hillary has such high negatives, and is plagued by so many scandals, that Trump’s attacks will annihilate her … at least if she hasn’t gone to prison by the time next fall rolls around.
Bernie Sanders, by contrast, is as squeaky-clean as American politicians get, has a lovable underdog, grandfatherly manner that defuses negative campaigning, and has the populist appeal to take the wind out of Trump’s sails.
What it boils down to is, a vote for Hillary is a vote for President Trump.
