Hillary Clinton on Sen. Bernie Sanders: 'Nobody likes him'

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton levied scathing attacks on Sen. Bernie Sanders in a new Hulu documentary and in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Clinton, who competed for the 2016 Democratic nomination against Sanders and won, claimed that Sanders is unlikable and has been relatively unaccomplished during his congressional tenure.

“He was in Congress for years. He had one senator support him. Nobody likes him, nobody wants to work with him, he got nothing done,” Clinton said in the documentary. “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”

[...]

“I will say, however, that it’s not only him, it’s the culture around him. It’s his leadership team. It’s his prominent supporters. It’s his online 'Bernie Bros' and their relentless attacks on lots of his competitors, particularly the women. And I really hope people are paying attention to that because it should be worrisome that he has permitted this culture — not only permitted, [he] seems to really be very much supporting it.”

3. She was talking about his colleagues. The complete thought:

5. And yet is one of the top three candidates

 

and is leading in several polls for Iowa and New Hsmpshire, and is out raising everyone in small donor fundraising.

So who exactly is this set of everyone that doesn’t like Bernie?

14. He's cratering in the polls. For example, RCP averages in Iowa:

 

Jan 7

Sanders 22.0
Buttigieg 21.7
Biden 20.3
Warren 15.3

Jan 21

Sanders 17.3 -4.7
Buttigieg 16.3 -5.4
Biden 21.0 +0.7
Warren 16.7 +1.4

He's lost more than five points to the current front runner in just two weeks, less than two weeks before the caucus.

538 has similar numbers.

In New Hampshire

RCP

Jan 7

Sanders 22.7
Buttigieg 17.7
Biden 18.7
Warren 14.7

Jan 21

Sanders 19.8 -2.9
Buttigieg 14.3 -3.4
Biden 18.5 -0.2
Warren 14.3 -0.4

He's lost 2.7 points to Biden in just two weeks, three weeks before the primary.

Again, 538 has similar numbers.

As for the "small donor" fundraising, that's a misnomer. They're "small donation" fundraising. Many of his "small donations" have come from big donors, but they're encouraged to give small and give often - inflating the # of donations and deflating the average of donations.

19. RCP national polls have Sanders steadily increasing since December, and Biden slowly decreasing

 

over the same period. Nationally RCP has sanders at his highest point ever. So I guess it is where you want to look.

23. Caucuses and primaries are conducted by state....

 

He's not really steadily increasing, he was at:

19.5 on November 25
19.5 on December 18
20.3 on January 9
20.4 today

He was also at:

15.4 on December 7
18.6 on December 17
18.6 on January 2
19.0 on January 11.

16. So she won't commit to backing him if he is the nominee?

 

Senator Clinton apparently would prefer Donald Trump over Bernie Sanders. That is pretty appalling.

18. She means none of the centrist DLC loving democrats, with lots of money

 

and a disdain for "leftist" democrats, like Bernie. Hillary speaks for the moneyed-interests and not every day voters. There are plenty of regular folks showing up at Bernie's rallies that show just how wrong Hillary is.

To like him requires a lot of anger and a whole pitcher of koolaid.
