Hypothetical polling is not to be fully trusted, especially in the context of live primaries. Better to think about how the arguments will play out amongst the various constituencies of the electorate. Sanders' positions would be seen as threatening by a lot of the Establishment, as opposed to their problem with Trump mostly being that he is hugely distasteful.Polling suggested that would have been the case.Not sure about that.Bernie Sanders would have slaughtered Trump....the bar is very low :-)Biden would have slaughtered Trump.Hillary had built up a strong base in the Democratic party over many years. If she hadn't run Biden would have run.''I think Hillary will prove to be a good president and will stand a decent chance of reelection in 2020. ''I still find it extraordinary that no credible Democratic alternative to Hillary emerged. There must have been some governor who could have made more of a credible appeal to be a man of the people while also holding a record of delivery. It's not as if taking on a candidate perceived as strong did her husband any harm.
