After his loss in the primaries earlier this week, a lot of people are wondering what's the point of raving for Bernie if he can't win the nomination? Bernie will be the first to tell you the following 1. his path to victory is narrow, but California has the most delegates left to win and a solid victory there could get him the delegates he needs at the Democratic Convention. Plus all the states left are open primaries, meaning registered Independents can vote and people don't have to vote for the party their registered for. Bernie consistently wins open primary states.
1.) His path to victory is narrow, but California has the most delegates left to win and a solid victory there could get him the delegates he needs at the Democratic Convention.
2.) In every single national poll he beats Donald Trump, the likely Republican candidate, by a higher margin digits while Hillary only beats him by a few points considered to be within the so-called "margin of error." This means if we're serious about keeping Mr. Trump out of office, we need to fight for the candidate who can actually beat him - take a look at the numbers below and read more about this here.
And finally, 3.) 9n the words of the man himself, "Let me tell you something that no other candidate for president will tell you. And that is, no matter who is elected to be president, that person will not be able to address the enormous problems facing the working families of our country. They will not be able to succeed, because the power of corporate America, the power of Wall Street, the power of campaign donors, is so great that no president alone can stand up to them. That is the truth. People may be uncomfortable about hearing it, but that is the reality. And that is why what this campaign is about is saying loudly and clearly. It is not just about electing Bernie Sanders for president, it is about creating a grassroots political movement in this country."
And he has successfully started the grassroots political movement he set out to create, that's why we have to keep raving for Bernie and making our voices heard. The most important way to do that is by getting out to vote, make sure you're registered here.
