A new Marquette Law School poll released yesterday shows that Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin by 49-45, raising the possibility that Sanders will win there. However, as Sanders continues to develop his message and grassroots support, it is likely he will defeat Hillary by a larger margin. Many months ago, Hillary was beating Bernie by 50 points in Wisconsin.
In addition, a new LA Times poll shows Sanders beating Clinton 45 to 37 percent. Sanders came from way back. And just like in Wisconsin, Bernie’s lead is likely to grow.
In my lifetime, we’ve seen the 1 percent go from getting 8 percent of the total income produced in the United States to 37 percent. I’ve seen tens of millions of jobs exported overseas, and the difference between the old higher US pay and the new lower overseas pay goes straight into the pockets of the 1 percent via higher corporate earnings, rising dividends, and surging share prices. I’ve seen a government and both its major political parties become intensely corrupted by that money. Bernie says enough is enough. I agree, and so do a lot of other people. The more his message gets out, the more people flock to him.
As for Hillary. It becomes difficult to like Clinton as more people get to know about her ties to Wall Street, her support for exporting jobs overseas, her support for deregulating Wall Street way back when, and her strong backing for legislation making it more difficult for people to go bankrupt, which helps the big banks who support her. And that’s just a few of the things people don’t like about her.
