    I do hope I’m wrong about this, but what comes to mind is H.L. Mencken’s quote: “No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have searched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.” Adlai Stevenson II, another high minded and well-educated man, gave a lecture (I believe at Sanders’ alma mater, the U of C) in which an enthusiastic supporter yelled out “Every thinking American will vote for you!” Stevenson’s reply: “Thank you, but I’d prefer a majority vote.” Again, I’d love a good man or woman in the White House and Bernie is one such.

    1. Gerald,
      How are you. While in agreement with your sentiments, other factors are part of the equation regarding those Americans supporting Hillary Clinton. It’s understandable that younger people support Bernie Sanders in very high percentages because they for the most part get their news/information on their computers – not through corporate media. The opposite is true for older Americans supporting Hillary Clinton who watch Fox, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, etc., where Bernie Sanders gets little airtime and is frequently defamed on the orders of owners of those media firms. Considering that state of affairs, if older Americans were aware of Bernie Sanders to the extent younger voters are Sanders would have been running away with the race. Sanders’ ability to go from 3% from when he announced his candidacy to where he is now is truly phenomenal given the massive hurdles erected before his campaign, and certainly provides evidence of his vision being far superior, and far more acceptable in the minds of Americans (for those aware of it), than Hillary Clinton’s. Michigan, pardon the unintended pun (once the auto capital of the world), is without doubt where the “rubber meets the road”. Thank you for your comment.
