Bernie sunders need to drop out of the race he is hurting the Democratic. Party Trump is a disgrace to America the whole world. is. watching us.


Please say how Bernie is hurting the Democratic party. It’s not his fault that Clinton is one of the most hated and flawed candidates. If you notice Bernie’s attacks they are all on her policies and positions. You know what Hillary can attack him on? Being sexist and other underhanded insults, there’s a reason why in the whole race that she hasn’t attacked him on his policies.

Mae Oldham

I guess Bernie would say it’s a good thing that Hillary is the most hated and flawed because if she was the most loved she’d have 6 million more votes than him instead of 3 million

Lee Gary Kushner

She isn’t most loved—HE is, by polling, definitely eons more likable than her or Trump, and she only got the 3 million by voter fraud, so what the hell are you even talking about?

I kind of have to agree with Mae Oldham here.

I’m also sick of hearing about big pharma. You have a family member who died of AIDS? I had two. Big pharma now gives people long lives even if they have AIDS. They die of other stuff, just like everybody else. Your health insurance is causing way more problems than big pharma. Big pharma is helping people with cancer and diabetes and they CURED hep C. So enough with big pharma, Bernie. If you get cancer, you gonna turn down chemo or immunotherapy? Cuz it’s your big pharma.

Former Bernie fan before it got ridiculous.


I agree with Mae Oldham to she would have more votes if she was more likable. In polling she has 37% of people who think she is trustworthy with a 57% that say shes untrustworthy. She has 56% of people who hold a negative view of her hand 32% have a positive. Before the race like a year ago Bernie was down 60% from Hillary, I think he closed that gap considerably. Bernie has been fighting his own party, media, and big super packs, not to mention that before the first state even voted she had a lead almost the size of California because of super delegates. The reason why Hillary is so unfavorable is because independents don’t like her and republicans despise her. If all conventions were open primary’s and allowed independents to vote I think the votes would have shifted dramatically.

Ermm so bernie whiter than white hmm so how come he seems to be always missing when it’s about gun control I admit his policies look good on paper but let’s get real here so did Obam as the little problem was getting them past the 2 houses .POTUS just an international figure head and in that case Bernie doesn’t stack up.

Lee Gary Kushner

Hurting it?!!! By getting it to go back to the equitable treatment of HUMAN BEINGS- labor, working mothers, veterans, medical patients and students and voters having say in government?


CA Votes June 7th. Don’t be a loser for the next 4-years. Take a friend and vote for Bernie Sanders.


Now, today is the time to decide and vote your future, the future of your kids, the future of the kids of your kids, and finally, the best option is Bernie Sanders. You, me, and all America without doubt can totally trust Bernie Sanders. Hillary or Trump have to many things to hide and they change their mind according to their personal and political benefit; that is sad at all….

Lee Gary Kushner

It’s either that or you get a Foundation criminal who aided felon contributors escape justice, a liar, about releasing all her public emails, a Benghazi, non-funding derelict who caused the killing of four Americans, and a corporate robot, who wants to keep competition from being forced on the health care and higher education industries,corporations from going taxed, to keep allowing jobs to go to foreigners, and to pollute the environment and us, to death.
