I've heard a number of different opinions on him, just interested to see what people think. Personally I'm not much of a fan, especially after some of his recent comments (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6IlGoeDIUQ), but there isn't a single candidate that I like at the moment.

Totally had to post.
Surely he is older, would be the oldest president. But on the other hand, both Hillary and Trump are just 5 years younger. His ideologies directly align with mine. The media either has a Bernie blackout or they hang on to statements he did not mean in that context. If you notice on Facebook nothing trends under his name. If you watch "The Big Short" and "Where to Invade Next", his ideologies will make sense especially if you're not directly familiar with the most recent recession that cost the middle class and the poor their livelihood. Having said that, I love this man and his passion for humanity.

So how do you feel about this video?

Well, Bernie, although I don't 100% agree with him on everything, and the video posted was not his best answer, he is still the best and only decent choice the USA has.

Marco Rubio is an evangelical nutcase, Ted Cruz is an racist bigot and evangelical though less open about it than Rubio, Donald Trump is dangerous, will ruin relationships with other countries by trying to bully like he does in business(oh and sue everyone), and Hillary Clinton is just a lying sleaze that is a stain on the Democratic party.

Better than Hilary or Trump, though none of the candidates this time around truly align with me politically, not any that I know have a chance at winning. I find him at least to be less repugnant than either of those two and closer to what I think view wise, although I think he's a bit too sympathetic to entitled SJW brats.

What he meant to emphasize is the racial disparity. If you look at his record, then and now, he supports people from all kinds of walks of life. I'm sure we say things out of context to prove a point, it would raise a red flag if this was his record. If you listen to his speeches and years of him speaking to the senate floor, never once does he mention one type of human trumps the other. The media is dissecting his speech for good reason. They're trying to stop the surge. I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but have been closely observing for the past year and they've been pretty transparent when it comes to smearing his name. I can already name the media sources that will consistently do this. When it comes to him winning primaries, one hears crickets.

I like Sanders. But he can't win the nomination. Even if he did, I would be afraid he could lose the general election. And even if he became president, he couldn't get anything done. It's a pipe dream. Whoever becomes president needs to represent the entire country. Sanders is too far left. We need a moderate who can work with both sides. That isn't Trump or Cruz. I'm not excited about Clinton, but she seems like the best choice this time.

I would feel better with him as president than Hilary Clinton. She's a crook. Routinely breaks laws, and then blows it off as if it was just a little thing that everyone is blowing out of proportion. This last one, though.... Is pretty bad. She endangered people in the field by exposing top secrets that could have fallen into enemy hands...

Sanders, over Hilary.

Him, Hillary and Trump are unfit for presidency (well, not just them, but they're the front runners). Bernie isn't winning primary so I'm stuck with voting for the lesser of evils, which isn't saying much between the two leftovers. Not that I would vote for Bernie either. I hate all of them.

Kinga750, that's what the public is manipulated to believe, unfortunately. As sad as it is, it's true. For months he has been beating all republican candidates. The fact that Hillary could lose to 2 the way it stands now, again ...crickets.
