Favorability Ratings Show Hillary Clinton Is Unelectable and Bernie Sanders Wins a General Election

Democrats must win swing states in 2016 to prevent Trump or another Republican from sitting in the Oval Office. Since voters in general elections normally won't vote for a candidate they don't like or at least find trustworthy, it's imperative that a Democratic nominee hold positive favorability ratings going into Election Day.

I explain in great detail in my latest YouTube segment why Hillary Clinton is unelectable due to negative favorability polls nationwide and within swing states.

Also, it used to be important not have an ongoing FBI investigation linked to emails, but any controversy related to the former Secretary of State is viewed as a badge of honor to certain voters. Nonetheless, electability is always tied to winning battleground states, and Hillary Clinton faces an uphill battle pertaining to electoral votes in these regions.

Regarding swing states in 2016, Quinnipiac University's July and August Swing State Polls highlight that voters in Colorado, Iowa, Virginia, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania don't find Hillary Clinton to be trustworthy..

The bank is open...DemocratSinceBirth is not in this for pecuniary gain or filthy lucre...If someone wants to wager I will bet $1,000.00 that Hillary Clinton will be the nominee... If I lose I will give the person the money to do as he or she pleases with it. If I win I will donate the $1,000.00 I won to charity...

I will also go double or nothing in the general. At that point I have no exposure.
