If Donald Trump, even with all of the reprehensible policies he is promoting, were just a bit more polished she would be struggling to get within single digits of him in the polls while Bernie still polls ahead of him by double digits. This election was mapped in detail in the ’08 primaries as payment for her endorsement of President Obama, and the establishment Democrats would rather loose the Presidency than their golden goose. They saw Bernie and his less than million dollar net worth after decades of service as a threat to their wealth that was greater than what Trump poses. The party cast a very clear vote for corruption, and is now scrambling to duck the blowback from that. For all of his shortcomings and lousy policy,
