A new Bloomberg poll shows Bernie Sanders has a slight national edge over Hillary Clinton, earning 49 percent of support to Clinton’s 48. This is only the second poll ever to show Sanders with a lead of any sort, and is at odds with other recent polls showing Clinton with a double-digit lead. But it’s clear that it accurately reflects one facet of the Democratic race: Clinton had massive leads over Sanders in every poll a year ago, as much as 54 percent. This lead has continually narrowed until today, it no longer exists.
This suggests that Sanders grows stronger with every passing day, while Wall Street’s candidate grows weaker.
The Bloomberg poll asked Democrats who they thought would be better at handling a number of issues that will face the next president. Clinton came out on top on issues of foreign policy; Sanders on economic issues.
Hillary’s tight relationship with the parasites of Wall Street is a consistent liability, and she isn’t considered trustworthy because she lies a lot, such as her support, and then nonsupport, of the Trans Pacific Partnership, a scam which will enrich Hillary’s Wall Street cronies by shipping millions of jobs overseas and redistributing trillions of dollars of income from working people in the USA to the 1 percent in the process.
In another poll, Sanders came out on top in trustworthiness by a wide margin over all the other candidates for president regardless of party affiliation. Hillary was near the bottom.
The federal government, and to a lesser extent state governments, have been using legislation to redistribute income from working Americans to the 1 percent for 35 years. Hillary supports this, while Bernie is against it.
Currently, the 1 percent steal 37 percent of all income produced in the United States compared to 8 percent in 1980. Bernie has said “enough is enough.” Hillary shows through her action that “enough isn’t enough.”
One thing is made obvious by these poll numbers. Bernie may be behind in the delegate count, but he can still win. It isn’t over until it’s over.
