    Quote:
    From my understanding, the Democratic National Convention was fixed more towards Hillary's favor, so it should have been Bernie against Trump. Sadly, I don't think that Bernie would have won, but he would at least have run against Trump. I think that the Democrats and Republicans both chose the worst possible candidates to face off against one another, two of which are perfect displays of what are exactly wrong with both parties. I think that if the Democrats went with someone else, then Trump wouldn't be in office. I remember hearing discussion about Biden running. Although I don't really care for liberal candidates, I think that he would have beaten Trump, and he obviously would be doing a much better job. I really don't see why they chose Hillary Clinton. As it is now, Trump has pretty much tainted the presidency for seemingly ALL of the future presidents (And he clearly doesn't care.). It's really going to be hard to come back from this one.


Hillary Clinton won because people have long known who she is. She probably would have won the Democratic nomination in 2008 if she didn't have a charismatic younger challenger. If you look at the 2016 Democratic primary polls (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationwide_opinion_polling_for_the_Democratic_Party_2016_presidential_primaries), you'll see she won nearly all of them. If Bernie Sanders was more charismatic and maybe younger, he probably would have won. It also didn't help that some of Sanders' ideas were more to the left than people are used to.

So really, it really doesn't matter if Biden or Sanders could have beat Trump if neither of them could beat Hillary.
