Bernie Would’ve Won… And He Wouldn’t Have Been Much Better

I don’t want to take away from the main import of your article (what difference Bernie Sanders would or would not be willing/able to make), but I do want to express disagreement about as to whether or not he would have won. I think the level of anti-semitism in this country is hugely underestimated. I don’t mean just by the obvious culprits (kkk, neo-nazis), but by the large number of people who don’t understand anything about freedom of religion and are determined to make this a “Christian” nation. It would be a tough call to get them to vote for a person of Jewish descent. Unfortunately, I believe, many people of color, so important in a liberal/left united front, would also be prone to this “Christian” nation nonsense. Your thoughts?
