Texas Lyceum poll: Sanders has best shot at Trump in November. Trump polled better than Democrats in the race, Sanders bringing in 47% to Trump’s 50. Biden was next, at 46 to 51. Sanders appears to be a big draw for Texas independents, 44% would vote for him, compared to Trump’s 41% in head-to-head matchup. Biden polls worse with independents. Just 28% would vote for him, compared to Trump 57%.

In another Texas primary, he endorsed Jessica Cisneros Laredo immigration attorney in her bid to unseat Henry Cuellar, who’s held his South Texas district for 15 years.

Pol Director: “Texas is always a difficult state for candidates to introduce themselves to the voters due to its sheer size and multiple, large media markets. But in a year in which the political oxygen has been sucked up by primaries and impeachment, it's a major challenge to break through with the Texas electorate.”

This is not the precursor of real Socialism in America, Sanders style. It's actually the last gasps of the Dem party. They are near done. A new part to compete with the GOP will emerge. The smart money would go to the new party if it's more supportive of our Constitution as written. That would leave the current GOP to become the new Dems without the support of the fringe minorities. A re-balance politically to leave the Socialist behind as a fringe element.

You have made lots of comments; still no article yet? I don' t agree at all with what you are saying, but I do think in a journalistic sense, you could expand this comment into a full scale article.

Thanks for the reply. I do enjoy learning what other people think and want. My working life in building, maintaining and selling golf courses in the 70's through the 90's was a PHD level life-learning adventure. My teachers were mother-nature and human-nature and It showcased for me what America can positively do and be for everyone that works to their individual goals.


I saw wins and losses. My lesson was winners and looses are never static. Winners can and do become losers, losers become winners. And it's never static. The roles change outside of government control. Americans only need choices. They choose. Repeatedly.


Socialism robs us of choices. As for Bernie, he sings a siren song. I hope we don't have to elect him to learn the destruction that would come.

OH, MY...You didn't strike me as yet another nay-saying harbinger of doom warning about Socialism leading to Communism.


That is so far removed from reality that it barely counts as propaganda.
