Gallup Finds: ‘Clinton Preferred for Experience; Sanders for Care’

Eric Zuesse

On March 31st, Gallup headlined, “Clinton Preferred for Experience; Sanders for Care,” and reported that, overwhelmingly, the top-listed reason that Hillary Clinton voters give for preferring her over her competitor Bernie Sanders is “Capable of being president/Qualified/Experienced.”

Here is the “experience” that impresses Democratic Party voters so much. Click on that (and on the links in it, if you want even more depth), to see what her record of achievement in public office has been.

Is there any sane reason why those voters prefer that record of achievement to the record of achievement of her competitor, Bernie Sanders?

What does it say about those Democratic Party voters?

    sanders has no record of achievement. prove me wrong: name one thing i could use to convince someone to vote for him. calling him ‘the amendment king’ is like awarding him special olympics gold for sitting on his butt doing nothing.

    where’s the beef?

    “What does it say about those Democratic Party voters?” Clinton = experience?? (Which one? A penny for your thoughts) That they hate the country and they’re brain dead?? I mean that surely is NOT a sign of…intelligence or even serious brain power. IMO it’s more of a sign they shouldn’t be voting…

      I agree. Does anyone (kimyo excepted) disagree?

        name a worthy sanders accomplishment, i dare ya…

        scan the web and all you will find is vote sanders – the least worst candidate. no one ever writes on the strength of his achievements. why? cause he’s got none.

          I think he will empower the people, something that is surely at the rock bottom of Clinton’s TO DO list. There’s no greater “achievement”.

            is it too soon to award him a nobel peace prize? i’ll chill the champagne.
