The kleptocracy is getting nervous
Just 47 percent of Americans would vote for a socialist if their party nominated one, while 50 percent said they would not, while 58 percent said they would have no problem voting for an atheist in their party
First of all, 47% is a pretty good number, higher that I would have guessed. Secondly Americans are not being asked to vote for a generic socialist, they are being asked to vote for Bernie Sanders, a very different proposition.
What this really tells us is that we have left to lovable curmudgeonly fluffy socialist from Vermont who could not possibly get elected. We have now reached the stage were Sanders is being taken seriously, so I hope his team is ready for what comes next.
I would caution readers from assuming that furture negative stories about Sanders are coming from the Clinton campaign, although we will be encouraged to think that. Bernie is not running against Clinton, he is running against Wall Street and we can depend upon Wall Street to come after him.
