The Hillary Video You'll Never See On MSNBC


The video above is a good example why so many dedicated progressives are wondering if they can ever, under any circumstances, vote for Hillary Clinton. When they hear her on NPR saying "I feel like my political beliefs are rooted in the conservatism that I was raised with... I'm very proud that I was a Goldwater Girl," they worry what kind of a president she would make. No serious progressive would ever consider voting for Trump, of course-- he's a racist, a misogynist, a xenophobe, a sociopath and someone clearly suffereing from an advanced case of narcissistic personality disorder-- but Hillary... what a horrible alternative.

Jill Stein, this year's Green Party candidate, received 469,501 votes in 2012-- and won over one percent of the votes in Maine, Oregon and Alaska (all states Bernie has done well in, by the way)-- and I suspect she may do far, far better next November if the choice is between Trump and Hillary, two candidates most Americans actually detest. Polls keep showing Hillary beating Trump very narrowly-- or, like the brand new Fox News poll-- losing to Trump. The Fox poll shows two disliked candidates but with Trump edging her 42-39%. They also did a head to head between Trump and Bernie and, like in every general election poll, Bernie does better than Hillary and beats Trump, in this one 46-42%. Independents unwilling to vote for Hillary-- you watched that video up top, right?-- are happy to vote for Bernie.

Perhaps even more shocking was a poll from the Atlanta Journal Constitution of Georgia general election voters. Everyone was shocked that Hillary came so close to beating Trump in Georgia-- a statistical dead heat, in fact, with him at 45% and her at 41% but again, the poll found "dim voter enthusiasm, high unfavorability ratings and deep skepticism from voters." And one other thing:
Perhaps the most telling sign of all: Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders polled higher than both in one-on-one matchups, winning a potential contest with Trump 47 percent to 42 percent. Although Clinton seems poised to win her party’s nomination, the AJC poll is among a string of surveys bolstering Sanders’ case that he poses the bigger threat to Trump.
So... progressives won't have to decide what to do about Hillary or Jill Stein for a while because, as much as Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid and the rest of the predatory and corrupt Democratic establishment and their media lackeys want you to think Bernie has no chance, Bernie has a chance-- not a great chance, but enough of a chance to stay in and keep fighting. If the Democrats want to win in November, they should wise up now and realize, Hillary isn't electable and Bernie is. Why? Watch that video up top. And consider helping Bernie get his message out, especially in California and New Jersey:
