Comrade Sanders wouldn't have beat Trump either, don't kid yourself. The only states Hillary won are liberal coastal strongholds, Illinois and New Mexico also both liberal strong holds. The rest of the country is tired of the progressive globalist agenda, tired of the left's anti America stance
Yeah like the threatening meme about "look how much red is on the map vs blue, you don't want to piss us off". Totally doesn't take into account that almost all areas are between 53 to 47% one way or the other, not like everyone in Red is conservative. It's a closely divided country throughout, hence how electorate vs popular wasn't the same result.
Bernie had the juice on the Left and had the millennials, once they realized it wasn't happening, many lost their way. It was the same as Trump energizing Working Class Right. Like Obama energized in 2008. Hillary didn't energize her own vibrator, though the throne was hers, because she waited her turn. Bern only need a little more in areas they won in 2012. Oh well, water under...
I also don't agree with all the fear selling you stated, Fox News pull string blah blah. I'm well aware of that game. Yep the more educated left's are tards... makes sense. The more you know the dumber you are, sound logic like that. Check.
The working class far outnumber the brainwashed naive Millennials,most of which will fail out in the real world because there are no participation trophies or safe spaces in the real world. They'll either learn that the hard way or fail. It's really more like they wasted mommy and daddy's money on a useless liberal arts degree.
Hillary lost because no one trusts her, Sanders wouldn't have won because of his ties to communist organizations and that hes an economic failure socialist. Most of the US doesn't want to be Europe, most don't want socialism or globalism. I realize that's difficult to accept for progressives, but wishing it to be different won't make it reality.
I hate to break it to you but the left is losing at all levels of government and in a big way. You can simply wave that away with cries of OMG Fox News!!!! It doesn't make it any less the truth however. It's actually quite ironic what with how much CNN and MSNBC have been blatantly caught literally making up news that is flat out false.
