As negatives pile up on Hillary Clinton's doorstep, the Democratic left is flocking to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. According to Quinnipiac, Sanders has gone from 4 percent of the Democratic primary vote in April to 8 percent in April to 15 percent in its May 28 survey.
While Hillary still has 57 percent of the primary vote (down from 60 percent last month), Sanders is moving up fast.
The Vermont senator is eclipsing former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chaffee, each of whom gets only 1 percent of the vote.
Among self-described "very liberal Democrats," Hillary leads Sanders by only 61 percent to 28 percent.
While Hillary flirts with the Pacific Rim trade treaty and the Keystone pipeline, both strongly opposed by the left, Sanders is gaining by hammering away with strongly liberal positions.
Some have dismissed Sanders because of his age. But he's not that old. (And appears less so the older I get.) He is only 73, but 6 years older than Hillary and is in fine physical and mental shape.
With Sanders breaking out of the anti-Hillary pack in the Democratic primary, Mrs. Clinton now faces real opposition in the primary. His very lack of funding appeals to voters disgusted by the Clinton machine’s total immersion in corrupt money.
Here comes Bernie….
