It’s time that major TV networks and other news outlets stop milking Trump’s antics for ratings boosts and report the facts at hand. The truth is, in most general election polls, both Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders blow Donald Trump out of the water.
According to a new poll by Quinnipiac University on Tuesday, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders destroys GOP candidate Donald Trump by 13 percentage points in a general election. Sanders has a massive 51% to Trump’s 38%. If this landslide margin held in a general election, Democrats would control not only the United States Senate, but quite possibly the House of Representatives. Analysts are considering this possibly a historic and almost unprecedented victory for the American Left. However, from the state of mainstream media, one would think that we are on the brink of inaugurating Donald Trump and that Bernie Sanders in either un-electable or non-existent.
Not only does Sanders decimate Trump, but he also surpasses Clinton. She defeats Trump by a still impressive 7 percentage points compared to Sanders’ 13% in a general election. It is important to note that analysts put Sanders ahead by such a huge margin that it makes discussions of national political realignment on a previously unthought of scale feasible.

While Trump is gaining popularity, it is important to note that he is only gaining popularity within the GOP, and not across the board. In terms of general elections, analysts are citing Bernie Sanders as a true heavyweight in match-up polling.
America may be on the brink of a new progressive era, led by President Sanders.
