I like him. Unfortunately, he's a long shot for the Democratic nomination. Clinton's not much different, so I won't be losing any sleep if she wins.

I wouldn't vote for a guy so close to his death bed. What is he, about 350 years old by now? I know you guys are terrified of dictatorship, yada-yada, but c'mon.

John McCain's still going strong at 79. I'm not worried.

I thought he had potential until he essentially endorsed Hillary Clinton. A wimp.

Bernie Sanders is my preferred candidate. His policies are sound, he has always stood by his ideals, and unlike countless other candidates he's not funded by a Super-PAC. He's also one of the only two candidates I have seen actually address the HUGE issue of money in politics -- the other being Lawrence Lessig, who plans to do literally nothing else during his presidency.

He didn't "endorse" Hillary. All he did was refuse to exploit a frivolous issue to cheaply undermine another candidate.

First - he's not a member of the Democratic party, so still not sure how it's legal for him to be running in their national primary. Second, he's a very vocal socialist (self-described), and I'm fiscally to the right. So, I wouldn't vote for him for dog-catcher, let alone President of the United States of America.

He is by far the best candidate I've seen. Personally, I think he could stand to be a little more socialistic, but I am extremely far to the left.

I don't think he will even come close to winning, though. :/

I think Bernie is a great guy with a lot of good ideas, but I think he's far more of an idealist leader than one that Americans can get behind right now. Since your from another country, I could point out that while Bernie might seem like a normal nominee to you, Americans as a whole nation are far more right leaning in general than most European countries and especially Asian ones. Basically Bernie is so "socialist" that enough Americans to get him in office might never support him.

Every poll I've seen has shown Sanders winning the debate by a landslide. The CNN live poll, which I participated in during the debate, had 75% of participants agree he won the overall debate. 59% said he won on foreign policy and 72% said he won on economic policy.

Doubt is natural. Throughout the years, all we've had is the same corrupt politicians with different faces. As a result, it's hard to imagine that someone like him could win. It's clear, however, that his message resonates with the general populace. He's drawn in massive crowds to his speeches and is quickly gaining on Hillary. Overall, I think he really does have a chance of winning the nomination.
