Hillary and Bernie

Is it time for the Democrats to admit Bernie Sanders is their best hope against Trump?

Citing the opinion of Kevin, the chap who installed our woodstove, may not meet the exacting standards of polling organisations like Gallup or Quinnipiac University. But the views of one blue collar New England voter are nevertheless interesting.

In 2008 he backed John McCain; in 2012, he didn’t even vote. Given the choices on offer this time round, he would plump for Bernie Sanders.

This may be the flimsiest straw in the wind, but it is confirming what a raft of polls is showing: in a straight fight with Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders is performing far better than Mrs Clinton.

That West Virginia exit poll was an eye-opener.

      It’s amazing that the question is even being asked at this point.
      And very satisfying.

      I hate to speculate on stuff like this because I end up sounding like Andrew Coyne.
      An example, and I like to use Gilbert Gottfried’s Seinfeld impression when voicing Andrew Coyne is:
      ‘On the one hand, this is a very bad thing, but on the other hand it is a very good thing, and I am very comfortable on this fence so we should do nothing.’

      At least he’d bring about the collapse sooner.
