    Audience: How unelectable is he?

    He's so unelectable that Americans would rather vote for an atheist, even a MUSLIM(!) than elect a Socialist!:

    You really needed a second thread to illustrate your (and other Americans') lack of understanding of the differences between a socialist and a social democrat (or "democratic socialist" as Bernie calls it)?

    That confirms that Americans have a very narrow understanding of the concept of socialism in its many received meanings...

    So 47% vs 50% of Americans would vote for a socialist.

    Sounds like a big lead over the entire Republican field that they have 47% support.

    Sadly, people already know he's a Socialist, so I don't think being Jewish will buy him much love.

    We get reminders of what Socialism is all about just by watching the evening news headlines about Venezuela.

    Not a surprise though. We know many Americans are poorly educated.

    Even Trump acknowledges this.

    "I love the poorly educated".

    Trump calls his voters stupid and they still vote for him. Proof you can't fix stupid.

    A lot of the socialist minded is the stupid young kids in college, whooping it up to the likes of Che and Mao, and who are sick and tired of being jobless under Obama and living either in squalor or at home (or both :) ), who want free college and handouts and who gave not learned of history's repeated attempts and failures under socialism.

    Socialism and capitalism together have worked rather well...

    Funny, they didn't about "a racist" or "a sociopath," so I guess fair-n-balanced Gallup isn't aware Republicans like Trump or Cruz are running too.

    I want the "Mission Accomplished" special edition version. Where the thumbs-up can rotate at the wrist. ;)

    So you're one of those people.

    You know that worthless isn't worth anything even in the original packaging.

    I remember Bush striding away from that jet and comparing his confident demeanor with that of also-ran Al Gore (who had to have a female consultant teach him how to be manly). Good times. Good times.

    Thought the title said "ineluctable".

    Disappointed.

    Yes, it's really raining hard outside. Don't worry, I'm inside.

    Yeah. One so rarely gets to use that word in a sentence about Bernie.

    It's not good to shelter yourself on so many social issues.
