"I believe there should be labeling on the food products that
we eat, whether they're GMOs or what not.
"We are taking on large corporations who make billions
of dollars a year and they do whatever they can to suppress
"And that is the culture that we have got to change in
this country from top to bottom.
"We can grow food in this country that is healthy.
"We can do it in a way that workers are treated with dignity
and respect and earn a decent wage.
"But we can't do it unless you have a president and a
congress prepared to stand up to these large corporations."
- Bernie Sanders
From Bernie's pre-rally meeting in Bakersfield.
The quoted parts start at 10:43.
"I have been in communities in inner cities where there are NO
GROCERY STORES. Where a mother can not buy fresh food for her
kids, where there are no banks and the only way you can cash a
check is through a payday lender who will charge you outrageous
"The African American community asked me quite appropriately,
'How come we can have trillions to fight a war in Iraq
but not have the money to rebuild inner cities in America'.
"If elected President we are going to change our national priorities.
We are not going to rebuild communities in Afghanistan, we are going
to rebuild communities in the United States."
- Bernie Sanders
Trump tells Kimmel he'd be willing to debate Sanders for charity:
Sanders and Trump Seemingly Agree to Debate:
This would be yuge!
This is the very definition of an easy choice for the contested convention that is going to be occurring -
Thanks to Time for change for the original post on this topic in GD-P:
If allowable, I hope the Sanders campaign will be mobilizing the folks on its massive email database to encourage them to reach out to specific "super" delegates in their states via phone/mail/email/social media to help convince the "supers" of the obvious truth that Bernie is the much stronger candidate for the fall.
Emails from the campaign are segmented by location when mobilizing people in the database to go out and vote, so in this critical instance it would seem to make sense to do so again.
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:
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:
Locomotive heads thru town during Bernie's speech last night (2nd time in 2 days lol):
Here's the one from Friday:
How interesting that in both cases he is talking bout - you guessed it - workers.
Shultz takes the stage at the 45 second mark.
