Yuge!: Sanders Leading Trump in a Deep South State

Sanders defeats Trump by 5 points in a new Georgia poll (compared to a 4 point Trump lead over HRC).

Other recent polls show...

Sanders defeating Trump by 18 points in North Carolina (compared to a 9 point HRC lead).
Sanders defeating Trump by 21 points in New Hampshire (compared to a 5 point HRC lead).
Sanders defeating Trump by 11 points nationwide (compared to a 6 point HRC lead).

AND REMEMBER THIS - The more people get to know Bernie, the more they like him. He grows on people exponentially with each appearance before them. Despite republican attacks, it would not be surprising to see an upward trajectory in his General Election poll numbers, similar to what happened in the Dem. primaries when the Sanders campaign was under extreme attacks, swiftboat-style and otherwise. For example look at the flurry of wins he is receiving as the democratic campaign winds to a close.

Let's not forget Bernie's support among independents. From a recent NBC news poll:

The Sanders-Clinton gap is particularly huge among registered independents, which Sanders won 52-30 in a Trump matchup, but which Clinton lost 37-39.

If I'm not mistaken, neither candidate is going to the convention with enough votes to win on the first ballot.

As I understand it, the rules will supposedly be that it then goes to a second ballot where the delegates will get to choose the most viable candidate for the fall.

Recent state polls more than hint at a potential utter landslide for a President-Elect Sanders.

From a post in GD-P by coffeeAM:

Clinton is one of the Weakest candidates in modern history, she is gonna be over taken in every GE poll within a month and the super delegates will have no choice but to come to their senses and ride the coat tails of the true progressive movement led by we the people, not we the corporations!

only other countries can afford to educate their populace. We can only afford endless war to steal the resources of other countries....cause we're so poor.

Of the country should be mocked, ridiculed, and laughed at.

Hopefully many eyes have been opened to what is possible now.
