Bernie Sanders vs Donald Trump: Who wins?

The biggest question facing Democrats is who is the best candidate to defeat President Donald Trump in the presidential election. The progressive wing of the Democratic party is pinning their hopes on Bernie Sanders. For many, Sanders is the ideal candidate to run against Trump—he has a degree of moral clarity that is unmatched by other Democrats. He is principled, he fights for the working class against corporate interests, and he is not beholden to any donors. He is the anti-Trump.

However, his critics argue Sanders is an unlikeable, angry man who will turn off voters. He has shown he is unable to build a coalition outside of his base. Worse yet, his plans are likely dead-on-arrival. Any program would have to pass through the House of Representatives and the Senate. It seems unlikely Sanders could get them on their side. In many ways, he could be like Jimmy Carter—someone we all like, but whose outsider status will ultimately doom his chances.

At one point in the last election, Joe Biden saw why Sanders would be able to defeat Trump. Listen to his words here.

Many see Sanders as the best hope for an equal and just future. The US needs radical change because the world around us is radically changing. We need to adapt.

Some are making the argument that Trump wants to run against Sanders. The fact that Sanders is a self-described socialist means Trump would obliterate him. Socialism is still a bad word in America, especially for older generations who tend to vote in larger numbers.

For conservative Democrats—don't forget, America is a conservative nation—Bernie is a bridge too far. Radical change scares a lot of people.
