    The more Democrats learn about Bernie Sanders, the more they appear to like him.

    A greater percentage of Democratic registered voters view the Vermont senator as likable, honest, competent and compassionate than they did just two months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Seventy-two percent now believe he could win the general election, a 21 percentage point increase from the last time the survey was conducted in December.

    Woodrow Benford, 58, who lives outside Minneapolis, says he didn't know much about Sanders before he announced his presidential bid, but now Benford plans to caucus for him on March 1.

    "Some changes need to be made, some major changes — he's addressing them," he said. "I like Hillary Clinton; don't get me wrong. But she'd never say she's going to break up the big banks."

    "I was going to bite my tongue and vote for Hillary, but I never really trusted her," said Robert Stone, a 59-year-old from Hilton Head, South Carolina, who already cast an absentee ballot for Sanders. "Every time she opens her mouth, I can't help but think she's lying about something."

    He has no chance, couldn't even beat a Trump IMO. I don't think most people know anything about him except he's not Hillary. But when they become acquainted with him it's game over--even in 2016 socialism isn't going to win general elections.

    What a sad list of ALL the candidates are. Not one good one in the bunch. I fear the c*nt is our next president. The machine wants/needs her. The server scandal hasn't even slowed down the train.

    I think you're underestimating the number of freeloaders in this country.

    There are several in this thread alone.

    If people can actually believe that Denmark, which has a relatively homogeneous population smaller than New York City, is a valid economic model for the entire US, anything is possible.

    I'm no Bernie supporter, but he has been here and I was surprised to hear how pro state rights he is.
    Dam near everything the local news asked, he said it should be up to the individual states.

    49.2% of our population receives some kind of assistance.

    When progressives are asked to describe their utopia, it always closely resembles the socialist homogenized Caucasian countries in northern Europe. Diversity is out the window. :lmao:
