Bernie Sanders beats every Republican by larger margin than Clinton #FeelTheBern Buried in the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, and completely ignored by the entire corporate Main Stream Media, is the fact that Bernie Sanders has superior poll numbers against Republicans than Clinton. He is FAR more electable, and is the most popular candidate with independents, nearly doubling the support of any Republican.
New NBC poll general match ups:
Sanders 46, Rubio 41 (+5)
Sanders 50, Trump 41 (+9)
Clinton 47, Rubio 44 (+3)
Clinton 50, Trump 42 (+8)•note- would be more comparisons shown, but they poll failed to ask about Bernie on other matchups. Others polls in citation below.
Having the Wall Street Journal belittle Bernie Sanders is nothing new. He is, after all, targeting Wall Street and Rupert Murdoch's propaganda empire, whereas Hillary Clinton is raking in campaign donations from them. The rest of the corporate MSM exclusion of Bernie however is really lighting a fire under my ass. Maybe after we win this election and break up the big banks we'll come break up the big corporate media oligarchy as well to restore some real journalism in America.
