Bernie Sanders has been right about a lot of things in the past year. He correctly assessed that Hillary Clinton could be successfully challenged from the left. He correctly measured the insurgent underground that lay dormant among Democrats and leftists whom the Dems had left behind. Sanders’ track record on predictions has been undeniably good. Over the weekend, he made his boldest statement yet about the future — one that contradicts a lot of energy and momentum being witnessed on the GOP ground.
Sanders told a customarily huge crowd at a Rutgers University stadium in New Jersey that “Donald Trump must not become president and I am happy to tell you that Donald Trump will not become president of the United States.” How does Sanders know? Here he hedges his bets on the future, saying he gets this info from the polls that have him beating Trump in a national election. The same polls have Hillary Clinton beating Trump, but they give Sanders a far wider margin of victory.
