It didn’t seem plausible six months ago, but there’s a real chance it could come down to Donald Trump versus Bernie Sanders; a billionaire developer versus an open socialist who has never worked outside Government and who honeymooned in the Soviet Union.
The really fun part is the billionaire is passionately supported by working class Americans, while the socialist Democrat is just as passionately supported by wealthy and upper class elitists (or at least their children). Kind of ironic, that.
Trump is still going to be leading in the polls after the debate. He did nothing to hurt himself last night. On the other hand, his only serious competitors, Rubio and Cruz, beat on each other.
On the other side, Bernie is surging. Hillary is collapsing, and if she escapes indictment it will only be because of the massive corruption of the Justice Department under Barack Obama.
OTOH, to paraphrase Ted Cruz’s favorite movie, “Never go in against a Clinton when the presidency is on the line”!
Trump versus Bernie; there’s a whole lot more difference there than a Clinton-Bush election would have provided, n’est-ce pas?
