At the start of this month, Bernie had $6 million in the bank. That's not nearly enough to even contend in CA. His $27 donors appear to be tapped out, and the general has not even begun. Drumpf is now tapping the big GOP billionaire donors, and will have a billion dollars to drown out Bernie's inspiring message.
Here's the thing about Bernie, he appeals to the left wing of the Democratic base, and left wing independent voters, that's who voted for him. Those are the people who are not turned off by the Socialist label, or the promised double digit increase in their tax rate. He didn't win minorities,or women, or older voters. He can't even win a majority of Democratic, how does he win a general?
By June 9th he will have lost to Hillary by about four million votes. If he can't beat what you point out is a flawed candidate, who ran no negative advertising against him, used no opposition research against him, how could he beat the GOP magic money machine? Hell, the Reich Wing has been cheering Bernie, their Superpacs have run ads for him, their voters have been crossing over in open primaries to vote for him (see WV) in order to mess with the Dem primary. The Right WANTS to run against Bernie. Ever wonder why?
You Bernie voters may yell louder and show up at arenas to hear Bernie speak, and have the time to spend all day at a caucus site, because of that you think Hillary has no enthusiasm behind her. When that poll came out a few weeks ago showing that her voters were actually the most enthusiastic you called it a fraud. The fact is, Hillary voters are tired of fighting with you, tired of being shouted down, tired of the antics, so we don't engage. That doesn't mean we don't like our candidate, aren't inspired by her message, it means we don't feel like being slagged by some millenial who has never voted, and because (likely) he grew up in an era of participation ribbons and sporting events where they didn't keep score, so they have no idea how to be gracious losers. The next step is not throwing a fit and disrupting things, it's doing what the Tea Party did to the Reps, invade the Democratic party and push it left. Work for more liberal down ticket candidates, have a LONG VIEW. The Tea Party had a long view, and now they own a majority of state legislatures. That's where the revolution begins in a democracy like ours.
