From an article on FiveThirtyEight.Com by Nate Silver:
“We’ve got an unpopular set of presidential candidates this year– Bernie Sanders is the only candidate in either party with a net-positive favorability rating — but Trump is the most unpopular of all. His favorability rating is 33 percent, as compared with an unfavorable rating of 58 percent, for a net rating of -25 percentage points. By comparison Hillary Clinton, whose favorability ratings are notoriously poor, has a 42 percent favorable rating against a 50 percent unfavorable rating, for a net of -8 points. Those are bad numbers, but nowhere near as bad as Trump’s.”
My personal thought is the only way to win against Trump is with Bernie Sanders. I feel like the economy is getting worse and a recession is very possible at this point. I feel there might be more acts of terrorism. The economy and terrorism will be closely associated with Hillary Clinton in quite a few ways. Senator Bernie Sanders is an outsider and not as associated with the economy and whats going on overseas. Many of his plans and ideas, such as breaking up the big banks, will soften up these financial panics which are bound to happen.
I could see us in November with the economy on fire and some major act of terrorism which has taken place. Trump is standing there saying “I told you so.” and leading in the polls. The more I think about it, the more I believe Hillary Clinton is not “electable”. Sanders is very insulated from the things going on in the world and, in fact, he will be the one standing there saying “I told you so.”
