Bernie Sanders vs Hillary Clinton, it’s been a crazy primary season so far. We have people on the left hurling mud and accusations at each other, much to the delight of Donald Trump and the Republican Party. In some corners of social media, Trump supporters appear to be passing themselves off as Bernie Sanders voters in order to give him an edge in November.
While it is very hard to prove if someone is really a 4Chan troll getting their rocks off by making Sanders and Clinton supporters fight each other, Donald Trump has repeatedly stated that Bernie Sanders should run an independent campaign in November. That’s his best chance of winning, although some polls give Trump a better edge against Clinton than previously assumed.
Despite the division the GOP and the media are exploiting for their personal gain, reasonable Sanders and Clinton supporters understand that either candidate is far better than the alternative – a Donald Trump presidency.
Members of the Republican establishment aren’t idiots. They know that Donald Trump isn’t their ideal candidate, but they prefer him over Hillary or Bernie. That’s why you see Trump’s former rivals slowly but surely getting behind him, even if they scorched him in the primary debates. From Bobby Jindal to Lindsey Graham, the GOP is grudgingly coalescing around Trump.
I know that people who follow me have strong opinions on whether Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders is the best option for the Democratic Party. I’m personally a big supporter of Bernie and have donated to his campaign, but I will be damned and dragged through a briar patch if I’ll let Donald Trump be our next president.
I think that eventually, once cooler heads prevail, Bernie and Hillary will be on a ticket together in November. As stupid as the Democratic Party has been strategically in years past, it would be even more asinine for them to isolate millions of voters who want either Clinton or Sanders.
Don’t let the media and clickbait political websites manipulate the rift in the party for their financial gain. Hillary Clinton will not be indicted for her emails, Benghazi, or any of the other rumors being floated in the blogosphere.
Let’s concentrate on things beside the presidential election. Every seat in the House of Representatives is up for grabs, as is a third of the Senate. In state elections, there are state legislatures to concentrate on as well. The media and the Republican Party wants us divided, let’s not fall for it.
