How many people who participate in these polls are even familiar with Bernie Sanders' background?

Probably few but he'll give Hillary someone to debate instead of letting her gather rust...

I have found that polls are often meaningless. When it comes right down to it, it comes down to the actual choice the voter makes. Once you vote it's final. But when answering polling questions it's just a guess and you can always change your mind which I am sure many do.

The fact that most never heard of Carson before his announcement, his standing is likely only to improve from here.

Maybe so but it's something to follow anyways and several polls of similar results a trend makes...

This guy is a blockhead:
Free college, free babysitting, free healthcare, free abortions, 12 weeks of paid leave, $15 minimum wage.

His job creation plan? $1 trillion dollars of spending. Plus he supports the job-killing carbon tax. :rolleyes



Hugo Chavez lives! :red

He wants to get rid of fossil fuels while investing in airports.
Um, I know I'm not very smart, but are there many airplanes and helicopters that don't run on fossil fuels?
Fill an unenlightened simpleton in on what he missed here

I suppose it's more efficient than a car... Maybe that's where he's going... Trains are the ultimate in efficiency for moving goods. He's a bit of an out there guy though overall.

Blockhead is the nicest possible way of stating what a complete imbecile the guy is. Whenever I see a Bernie sticker or pro-Bernie facebook post, I immediately assume the person has low intelligence.

I actually kind of like Carson, but some of his views on the social issues really bring into question his electability in a general election. I still think we are likely looking at a Bush, Rubio, or Walker nomination.

Yet The Bern's home state is more financially stable than most of the Republican lead states with their low taxes and depressed economies. I guess it all comes down to what you consider to be a success...

I fail to see what that has to do with the old coot, but it appears the answer is nothing.

If old Bernie had been a governor this would be more relevant...
