SANDERS, CLINTON THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND RACE FOR THE NOMINATION
After last night results from states holding primaries it is evident Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in the fiercest battle that has everyone watching and it is a battle that we have not seen in our elections in a long time. Bernie Sanders is a candidate that is appealing to the millennial generation, a generation that is the future leaders of this country and he is talking about real issues, issues that not many candidates can talk about they way he does and relate to the people. Hillary Clinton is an establishment candidate, a candidate, which most political pundits would she is say “a Washington insider”. Given the stark differences between these two candidates and their messaging, this is a battle that the Democratic party did not see coming and a battle that Hillary Clinton did not expect.
When we say that poor people vote against their own interest by voting for a candidate that does not care about there needs or issues, are democratic voters facing that in the 2016 elections?
The race for the Democratic nomination is far from over, despite the subjective biased media and establishment pushing Hillary Clinton on Democratic voters, she is in the fight for her political career. Receiving the nomination and being elected as the next President is a career goal, which Hillary Clinton is desperate to have. Bernie Sanders goal is to have a better government, to have a government where it works for the people and not corporations. Furthermore, Bernie Sanders goals are to ensure that every right and equality is what citizens have and that they are not being infringed on by a government that has become more polarized and unequal. The 2016 elections is where we have witnessed just how bad our politics is, the blatant unfairness that candidates are receiving, specifically on the democratic side and how the establishment is pushing a candidate that not everyone trusts or believe in. When we say that poor people vote against their own interest by voting for a candidate that does not care about there needs or issues, are democratic voters facing that in the 2016 elections?
