1. I read it earlier--Goodman is pathologically obsessed with Hillary--and delusional.

2. If you have no idea what a "trajectory" is and heart online polls, I can see the argument.

I know President Obama, President Obama is a friend of mine, and Sanders is no Obama.

Predictable that the last thing Sanders fans wood pin their fading hopes on is the "Obama trajectory", hoping Sanders is the transformational figure Obama was.....he is not.

9. You mean the Noble Peace Prize winner who ended two wars and started none and did a peace

deal with Iran and refused to intervene in Libya and Syria or Ukraine, and now has jump started more peace talks for Syria.....because my world is evidence based, and not fantastical.

10. tell that to the people dying in iraq and syria

not to mention the hospital in afghanistan

their dead bodies are pretty good evidence that his "peace" prize might be needing a little silver polishing, cuz its fading.

11. Since Obama will win a second Peace Prize next October, I would polish the first one so they match.

12. I know Sanders, he's a friend of mine, and you're right Obama is no Bernie Sanders.

In fact Sanders is ahead of where Obama was at this point. I remember, I was a supporter. I get a beautiful sense of deja vu when I see all the exact same negative talking points aimed at Sanders that were aimed at Obama. Back then we never let that influence our enthusiasm and just kept on working to get our candidate elected.

The Hillary campaign went negative, then, as they have now, very early on. That turned a lot of people off.

Meantime Obama resisted, just like Bernie, going negative and tried to stay on the issues.

I feel like I've been transported back seven years.

BECAUSE of all the negative campaigning by Hillary, I was able to persuade my FIL, who hated all that noise, to switch to Obama who seemed a lot more positive.

I'm sure that was repeated tens of thousands of times.

The old fashioned Traditional Polls had Hillary way ahead of Obama also at this point.

I'm very confident that like Obama, Bernie will win.

Hillary is just bad on the issues and going negative makes people wonder why she doesn't just talk about the issues. Makes it easy for me when working on getting voters to switch to Bernie. I use some that garbage that is posted here, eg. People do not like that.

14. Obama was an inspirational campaigner

Bernie is an angry campaigner- He has hit his ceiling. He will win the Online/DU polls. That will give you some comfort hopefully.

15. "Old fashioned, traditional polls"? Anyone preferring cyber-polls over real ones is not anyone I

would take seriously, but then I love science and have a sound understanding of random sampling under controlled parameters....a lot of folk do not, I get that.

Really?

Math and statistics are old fashioned I guess, so is the theory of gravity.

Is Bernie going to defy that next?

13. From one of the comments:

"Bernie is wiping the floor with Hillary despite not having support from the establishment, superpacs, or the media."

How do people come up with this kind of stuff? I'm serious. In an article that shows that Hillary has solidified her already strong support from the voters, this person also notes that the "establishment, super pacs or the media" are also allegedly in Hillary's corner.

So... how or where is Bernie "wiping the floor" with Hillary?? According to this person, every single entity that matters is supporting her! How do people look at things and reach these kinds of conclusions?? And we've been seeing this kind of garbage everywhere.
