The answer is simple. Bernie is everything Hillary is not. He's a straight shooter, who is willing to fight Wall Street and to stop fighting useless wars. He offers bold proposals that would really make a tangible difference in people's lives, like free higher education. And he doesn't need to test his lines in a focus group. As a result, he has the enthusiastic support of young people of all hues. He's also a big hit with independents. Everyone knows he's completely committed to fighting runaway inequality. And this year, that's what voters really want.
What they don't want is what we're hearing from so many Hillary supporters -- defensiveness, complex explanations about why her positions have changed, why she's being treated unfairly, why her more centrists positions are really more progressive, why she's really telling the truth even when she isn't. It's spin after spin after spin. It doesn't sit well with voters.
Plain and simple, Hillary is a much bigger risk this fall than Bernie. It's not too late to do something about it.
