I think Sanders can beat Trump.  I do not think Clinton can.

There's only one poll so far that agrees.

It's something like Sanders, Trump, Cruz, Clinton, Rubio, but all within 3%, which is inside the margin of error.

It's too early to tell.  My guess is that if Trump gets nominated, he wins the general, because the democratic party hates each other and wouldn't piss down each other's throats if their hearts were on fire.  If Cruz gets nominated, Trump runs as an independent, splits the GOP, and the dem candidate squeaks out a win.

Within margin of error means that he could win, it's a reasonable possibility.  I think the Clinton supporters will line up behind Sanders, but the Sanders supporters are much less likely to line up behind Clinton.

I don't think either side - as a whole - will line up behind the other.

So on a slight sidetrack the Chicago photo of Sanders' arrest has found a use among the "opposition"

Not one mention of the civil rights context of the pic and the usual implication of disloyalty and "dangerous revolutionary" shit painting.

I kinda want to hit 'em.  I kinda want to puke. I don't know, but figured I'd show what I happened to spot.

He might pass on American secrets to the Russians.  Oh, no wait, they found capitalism.  The Chinese?  Oh, also capitalist?  Cuba?  Opened diplomatic negotiations with the USA, you say?

Well, he still might sell us all out to North Korea.

Meanwhile, the neoconservative movement was founded by literal ex-Trotskyites.

If you're Goldman Sachs or Exxon, he is a dangerous revolutionary.

Jeb Bush dropped out, Clinton wins Nevada, Trump wins South Carolina.

What fucks with me is that I can already imagine the CT shit he'd have to deal with as president. You think Kenyan Muslim Antichrist Deathpanel Obama was bad? Sanders would get the worst shitfest ever as an openly socialist JEWISH president. They'll be calling him a plant for the ZOG in the underground as soon as he may win the primary, especially if Trump is his opponent I suspect. And he's the LAST person the actual, rather ethnically diverse as I hear it, banking cartels want in office. He might cut military spending and just GIVE it to the masses for health and education. The nerve!

I really hope he prevails despite his loss in Nevada.

He expected to lose Nevada, that's Harry Reid's territory.  He was down 40 points there in the polls, managed to get around 48%.  Better than expected, but still a loss.

Current totals, minus superdelegates.

Iowa: Hillary - 23, Bernie - 21
NH: Hillary - 9, Bernie - 15
Nevada: Hillary - 19, Bernie - 15

51 to 51

Nevada's a pretty minor loss.  I think he is still ahead on elected delegates.  I expect Clinton to be ahead after South Carolina, but not by a huge amount.
