    Polling companies world wide need to seriously REASSESS the the +5 for the right wing candidate/ option.

    From what I've read I'm more concerned about his blatant disregard for environmental issues.

    Unlikely, Hilary had the ability to swing some moderate republicans that Sanders could never. The working classes seem done with liberalism and supporting other people now, the mindset is every man for his fucking self nowadays.

    What's a nice country I can move to and wait out the storm for a decade?

    Yeah, Le Pen is already coining "Frexit" and is worryingly popular. France does have quite the history of this but they were definitely emboldened by Brexit, like so many out-and-out racists.

    Canada and Scotland really seem to be going against the grain. The unloved northern relatives. But how long will THAT last?!

    I always thought he seemed to fare better in Sanders vs Trump polls than Clinton did in Clinton vs Trump polls

    He did - consistently.

    And were it not for the unelected superdelegates in the Democratic primaries I think he would have won the nomination.

    The problem is that despite being a racist misogynist Trump was seen as being an outsider, not a member of the establishment.

    Clintion was the very definition of the establishmemt, and the perfect person to rebel against.

    Let's raise that glass ceiling a little further. Michelle Obama for president in 2024.
