Well, I don't support Bernie, I support Trump, but I like Bernie: I like his energy and his red face (though frankly I doubt he'll last till the convention on his schedule and recent heart attack. Do you know he's doing 5 to 6 events EVERY DAY???). I like his crochetiness. I like how he looked so askance at the topless PETA woman while his wife clearly thought it was hilarious.

What can I say --- I collected petition votes for Eugene McCarthy, so I really relate to the kids liking Bernie. I think he'll lose, but it's their first (heartbreaking) political romance.

I admire his drive given his age and physical frailty. And he isn't a changeling, he is who he is. I don't agree with any of his policies since they are all about greatly increasing the power of government and greatly increasing everyone's taxes to pay for free healthcare, free college, etc.

Cotchetiness and having energy doesnt make you qualified to be the POTUS.

Bernie is this bleeding heart liberal, that talks a good game, but as the 60min interview he had last night showed....just like Hillary, they all talk a good game, but for all the years he's had in both the senate and congress....they ain't got shit to show for it. Renaming a mailbox????? 3 houses later, a good chunk of money in the bank and that's it.

The road to hell and full on bullshit rhetoric, is paved by people with good intentions!!

So you dislike politicians who change their positions so much that they don't really have a position except for what their masters tell them??

And you are a Trump supporter?

Adorable....

Yeah, he's talking a good game, just like Trump with all the bullshit he promised...the wall, cheaper and better healthcare, good paying jobs from China....people in this country will believe in anything and anybody as long as it doesn't hurt their bottom line and sadly, it always turn into expensive pipe dreams....we never learn, we just don't

If you put Bernie's policies against any Trump policy -- Bernie's policies are by far the most popular...

And if you watch Bernie articulate his policy positions versus watching Trump articulate his -- you will see why most Trumpers never talk policies, they talk personalities...

and until most Americans are educated on the policies, they will get sucked in by personalities every time...

When Bernie loses and he will, the only good that will emerge is that like Hillary and hopefully Joe and Liz, they'll all stick with what they know and get the hell off the national stage for good. I hope this is the ERA WHERE DEMOCRATS SAY GOOD BYE TO THESE OLD GEEZERS AND START TO LOOK FOR AND SUPPORT NEW VOICES WITH BETTER IDEAS AND BETTER WAYS TO CONVEY THEIR MESSAGES.

You can admire his tenacity, though misguided.
He believes what he believes and defends it vigorously.
He has not allowed himself to be corrupted to the degree everyone else around him is.
I believe he truly has the best interest of others at heart, but just wrong opinions on how to get there.

Other than that he hates Trump, but why???
I like his single-payer, healthcare plan. Unfortunately he reminds me of another Dem hopeful I really supported. McGovern. I believe he lost every state but one and I can see Bernie doing the same.

Biff, please stop thinking that Bernie will get anything done if elected. Obama had both houses, the voter wind behind his back and this man went through hell to get ACA passed, pure hell and had to pay for the shit as he went further. The senate is gonna get the house and democrats in congress are all endanger of losing seats with this socialistic agenda Bernie is riding on. Get real and stop with this unattainable ideolog bullshit Bernie is talking about. Open borders???? Free healthcare and benefits to illegals??? Free college and paying off student debt??? Can I get a rebate check for the years I spent paying off my school loan?? ALL THE SHIT, BIFF, TRUMP HAS DONE AND ITS BEEN A LOT....IN POLLS, THIS MAN IS 2-3% POINTS BEHIND SANDERS....FLORIDA IS A BUST ALREADY AND MICH, OHIO, PA...ALL SHOW A TIGHT RACE AND THIS IS TRUMP WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.....STOP DRINKING THE KOOL AIDE AND GET REAL, MAN, GET REAL
