Incredibly frustrating that the two parties offered up Clinton and Trump for the highest office in the land.
Hopefully the dems can putforth a good candidate in 2020
As much as both parties are responsible for their counter-productive partisan divisiveness, it's hard to blame the republican party for Trump. He was the choice of the people. Plenty of chances for others to beat him, and they didn't. Clinton, on the other hand, was the heir apparent for the Dems and no one who chose to run really had much of a chance against her (once Biden opted out). The fact that such a flawed candidate as Bernie gave her a run indicates she wasn't inspiring the people.
That the American people whittled the party nominations down to Trump v. Cruz and Clinton v. Sanders is rather sad. Maybe both parties can do better in 2020.
I don't know why you're lumping Sanders in with the rest of that lot. I think he easily beats Trump in a general election.
I've heard Trump supporters echo this sentiment, some of them actually liked Sanders better, believe it or not.
The Superdelegates that Sanders lost wouldn't be a factor in a general election. That's on the DNC, not Sanders.
As for a general election, Sanders is a northeastern Jew with some socialist tendencies. That didn't fly well with some Democrats, but those Democrats came from states he likely would have lost in a general election anyways. I think he wins all the blue states and most of the swing states with his pro-middle class, anti-establishment message. Unlike Clinton, Sanders understands the plight of the poor and middle class rural American, and I think he would have reached a lot of those voters in Ohio, Michigan, etc.
