    Kathryn Lee I disagree.Out of the three candidates, Hillary should be the one trusted the least. If she is elected, nothing will change for the better. She is not truly progressive, but because she saw Bernie's popularity, she started changing her platform to sound more like his. She can't keep flip-flopping on the issues. She is a multi-millionaire, so why accept funding from Wall St, big banks and major corporations who fight against everything Bernie believes in? It doesn't take much common sense to figure this out. Her indignant response to why she accepts money from Wall St by referring to 9/11 was quite a ploy that she has been called out about. I do not trust her at all. Yes, maybe she sounds more like a politically correct politician, but that doesn't make her trustworthy and honest. She is way too smug because she thought she had the nomination in the bag!

    We must evolve this Bernie campaign into a genuine movement whether he wins or not!

    Bernie Sanders is, by far the most refreshing political candidate we have had in 50 years! The only reason he is behind Hillary in the polls is because of name recognition, but who would have thought a fairly unknown Senator from Vermont could whittle Hillary's poll numbers from 86% to 52% in just 8 to 10 months? If he can get the word to more people he will be our next President because he polls better than any of the Republican candidates even at this early date. If people get a chance to hear just one of his rally speeches they will come back for more and if he wins the Democratic nomination he will be the next President by an unprecedented landslide!

    We are tired of spending our treasure on endless wars in the Middle East. Let them solve their own civil unrest. Get out of the Middle East and the problem of ISIS will be solved! Start spending with the same level of enthusiasm on infrastructure, education and healthcare. Get off of fossil fuels and create jobs in sustainable energy. Sanders is the only candidate that sees this path forward.

    Senator Bernie Sanders is the only candidate worthy to be POTUS. Don't get me wrong, after tonight's debate I have some serious respect for former Governor O'Malley but Senator Sanders is the only one I can stand behind because when he talks, he doesn't say 'I' he says 'We'. His entire campaign is OUR campaign, the people's campaign, a real political movement that wants to bring an end to the oligarchy and corruption that has taken hold of our government and is literally breaking our economy and us as a people. Our movement is about guaranteeing that the 99% of US citizens have a descent quality of life, have access to single-payer health care and have access to higher education without falling tens of thousands of dollars in debt. He is aware of the danger of Climate Change, and has a plan to help resolve it before it becomes an unsolvable problem!

    With Senator Sanders as POTUS, O'Malley as VP and working together with Canada's PM Justin Trudeau, we can bring real change to North Amerca and help save our country from itself. We can form a coalition to end ISIS and help end Islamophobia before hatred breeds more products of hatred.

    Feel the Bern people, and join the political movement to save our country and our world before our own irresponsibility destroys it.

    Clinton (Hillary, Bill and Chelsea) are so covered in slime and Hillary is so arrogant, dishonest, smug and whiny it's astonishing that not everyone can see through this Wall street energy industry puppet. She's bought and paid for. Sanders is the Country's only hope. He's not prefect but he's totally honest and has enormous integrity.

    Bernie's message is not "elect me and I'll fix everything," but rather "join me so that we can build a movement that will endure long after my presidency." That's the answer to "but how can he get all this done?" It's not that he can, it's that we can. But he gives a voice to the political aspirations of the many that have been suppressed in mainstream political discourse for decades. It's a big victory in itself that he has earned a platform in national debates to advocate for free college, single-payer health care, a guarantee of a living wage, and so much more. He owes that platform to the unexpected and overwhelming grassroots support he has garnered from ordinary people. I believe he can win, but I'm sure that if and when he does, his campaign won't end on election day or inauguration day. I truly believe that he doesn't care whether *he's* president, that for him it's only about what kind of country America will become moving forward. Bernie Sanders can be out Tommy Douglas. If you don't know how that is, a Canadian Broadcast Corporation poll named him "The Greatest Canadian"...he fought for and won their single-payer health care system. Once the American people realize what they can have if they fight for it at the polls, they will never give it up.

    As an Independent Voter and watching and listening to Mr Sanders for many year...he is the most honest, a very practical and true patriot who loves this Nation and truly cares for the Middle and struggling Classes of America. I beg people to look at his long political record and he has been on the ball for years. VOTE FOR BERNIE

  • ALEXANDRIA - 7 years ago

    Bernie is the most genuine and trustworthy. He will be the first president I've ever voted for. He gives me hope that the system can function productively

  • Ed - 7 years ago

    Bernie has answers and plans and he does not gloss anything over. You have to only go to his website to learn this. He has more experience than the others as well. Sometimes though this hurts him because he can get bogged down in a explanation. People for Hillary have not read his website or researched him as a candidate - it shows in their responses. I am voting for Bernie - he is for the people and knows how to make it work.

  • Debby - 7 years ago

    No more BUSHS or CLINTONS as POTUS! Been there done that! Bernie has the record for being on the people's side!! It is time for a revolution! Get people to vote!

  • Nancy Volle - 7 years ago

    Hillary's husband was elected in 1988. She has 27 years of name recognition. She wouldn't have a chance of winning against Sanders and O'Malley without that name recognition. She is a slick, boring old style politician. She will say whatever she needs to get elected and then be just another do nothing Democrat. I'm voting for Sanders and have a lot of respect for O'Malley. Clinton is a big zero.

  • Jenna - 7 years ago

    I love Bernie's message but how do you get it done?!!! We have huge issues, with need for huge results. Who has been there? Who knows how it really works? Who has connections, across party lines, internationally respected, knows what it's like to run a country, with international problems and a GREAT, former President, literally, in bed, with her...Hillary. I love Bernie but this takes more then being, an idealist. He's going to be polarizing(we've dealt with enough of that)...but maybe a good Vice President. Vote wisely.

  • Leesha Fagan - 7 years ago

    Bernie Sanders is the only candidate in this race for all the right reasons: to help the 99% have a decent quality of life, and to help this country be a place where all people can live with dignity and respect, and work together to leave the best possible country and world for the generations that will come after ours.
    His genuineness is rare among politicians. He is our once-in-a-lifetime candidate, a statesman and leader who can help us regain our country from the corporations and billionaire.
    Bernie has always walked his talk. He is the real deal, and we are so fortunate that he has made the decision, the commitment, to run for president and to stand up for all of us.
    We have to be the media, folks. Talk to the people you know, the people you meet, about Bernie.
    Feel the Bern!

    I love bernie sanders!

    I like Sen. Sanders and I have always respected him and liked what he has had to say. However, he has one song and one dance and it's getting old. No matter the issue, his answer always comes back to Wall Street. If I played the drinking game during the debate or one of his speeches, I'd be drunk in no time. Although there are economic issues, those are not the only things I am concerned about. In view of the Paris attack, I do not see Sen. Sanders as a strong Commander in Chief. So, as good as Sen. Sanders and Gov. O'Malley sound, Sec. Clinton is the one I trust and who has my vote, no matter what your poll shows. I prefer a wide range of music, not just one song over and over again.

  • linda - 7 years ago

    Bernie at 87%. How long before that changes for Hillary?

  • Betty Ann Manock - 7 years ago

    As I watched the debate I found Hillary a little too smug, practiced and "slick" to suit me. She seems to have an ATTITUDE that no one should criticize her because she is much more knowledgeable than anyone else. Bernie was outstanding and Mallory did a very good job of presenting himself. I will be voting for Bernie Sanders for President, but if I had only Mallory and Clinton to choose from, I would vote for Mallory. Hillary will not be able to shake off the ties to Wall Street, Big Banks and Large Corporations. There are debts to pay for those donations and it is the Taxpayers who get stuck with paying the bills. BERNIE SANDERS FOR PRESIDENT #FeelTheBern

  • Natalie - 7 years ago

    I definitely like O'Malley the best and he was arguably the least criticized and had the best comebacks. But unfortunately he doesn't stand a chance for the presidency. :(

  • Cathi - 7 years ago

    I thought Clinton often resorted to a smug-like smile that wasn't very sincere and more pompous than anything. O'Malley was very logical. Bernie Sanders embraces the country with heart, passion, honesty, common sense, justice and determination. He's the winner, top down.

  • Alec - 7 years ago

    Clinton couldn't stand up to combined fire from Sanders and O'Malley.
