Clinton's "inevitability" is a myth, and Bernie Sanders will be president, it is now claimed.
Hillary Clinton is not leading in the polls. Rather, she has been the beneficiary of a campaign to "desperately" convince voters that they will end up electing a person they "don't like," according to a new report by the Huffington Post.
"Mainstream pundits and public relations executives work tirelessly to make you believe Clinton is inevitability."CNN writes that Clinton indirectly controls the PR arm of the Democratic Party, and this hidden string-pulling has been critical in establishing the myth that Hillary's presidency is inevitable.
The report adds that this grave state of affairs is in fact set to get worse in the near future.
"The nation's leading Democratic PR firm will soon be owned by a private equity group run by a longtime Clinton insider."It is also claimed that social media is a critical tool in shattering the myth of Clinton's dominance -- social media is the one realm where true public attitudes towards Clinton are able to surface, as this is the only sphere that the well-connected presidential nominee is unable to control.
"[Without social media Hillary] would undoubtedly run away with the nomination, because she'd be able to control the narrative even further."Historically, Americans have never once elected a president found in reliable polls to be considered "not honest and trustworthy." The "dishonest" branding appears to be one that excludes candidates from the White House. Some observers argue that Hillary Clinton is unelectable due to negative ratings that, indeed, stem from a perception that the former First Lady is untrustworthy.
It is Bernie Sanders, not Hillary Clinton, who has captured the support of American voters, according to some analysts.
"Bernie Sanders will become our next president because he's winning among normal, everyday Americans; not a select group of less than 1,000 people meant to speak for 316 million other Americans."The Washington Post reports that Bernie Sanders has spoken out against the excessive media attention given to Donald Trump, but supporters claim that Sanders needn't seek further coverage, as he already enjoys enough solid support to put him in the White House.
"Sanders probably deserves more attention than he has been getting, and it's easy to understand his frustration. But, realistically, he isn't going to garner the same level of coverage as Trump. And he shouldn't."On Saturday Bernie Sanders argued that the media is not reflecting the reality that Americans face.
"They'd rather have us fighting against each other... Let's have war with Mexico! Let's ban all Muslims, let's talk about that. Let's not talk about how we all come together to create an economy that works for all rather than the top one percent."Daily Kos reports that Sanders is the most favorably thought-of presidential candidate in either party, and regarded as the most "honest." Sanders has said the following.
"What this campaign is about is not sound bites. It is attempting to address some of the most important issues facing our country. It is an attempt to force discussion on issues that are often swept under the rug."In addition to Bernie Sanders' wealth redistribution stance and progressive social policies, the Democratic hopeful holds some controversial views on criminal justice reform, as reported by the Des Moines Register. Sanders favors universal restoration of voting rights for felons who have served their time, and the removal of marijuana from the federal list of dangerous drugs.
Sanders also supports taxpayer-funded college tuition for all, and has stated the following of the monetary cost.
"At the end of the day, providing a path for kids to go to the University of Iowa is a hell of a lot cheaper than giving them a path to jail."Will Bernie Sanders be president? Does Donald Trump get too much media attention?
