I’m wondering how many counter-examples could be found, where Bernie Sander’s “platform” has won — because it seems to me that your examples are all very one sided.

However, with that question in mind, my European point of view has always been that in this US election, Sander’s seemed to be the candidate most aligned with my own political vision, however, I do not see how he could possible push through the reforms which he wants to do.

Opposition against his ideas from the more conservative parts of America will be too strong, and he will lose on just about any real reform which he will try to make.

And I guess the examples which you have given, do kind of support that.

Like what you read? Give Tim van der Leeuw a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
