The Vermont Senator has taken the Democratic Party by storm this election season, and although he may be losing slightly to Hillary, Bernie will change the party forever.
In recent weeks a battle has been brewing inside the Democratic Party between Bernie Sanders and the party’s leadership. He thinks that he is being treated unfairly and that they system is rigged for Hillary.
The party just wants Bernie to leave so they can anoint Hillary.
Things are heating up though.
Bernie, in an interview on CNN, said the if he was to become president then he would not reappoint Debbie Wasserman-Shultz as the head of the DNC.
In fact, he took it a step further and said that he is supporting Rim Canova, who is running against Debbie for her seat in the Florida House of Representatives.
Bernie said, “Well, clearly, I favor her opponent. His views are much closer to mine.”
In a year that the Democratic Party thought they had a cakewalk to the White House with Hillary Clinton, things are not turning out like they had planned and the party could suffer for years.
This election is divisive and Bernie has taken much of the youth from the party under his wing. If the party can’t find a way to make Bernie feel at home, then an entire generation of Democrats could be disenfranchised and willing to vote GOP or another party.
Hillary has her own issues about likeability and her criminal investigation by the FBI is making it hard for her to tell Bernie to get out of the race.
If voters hit the last polls in California and the other states on June 7th and they vote in favor of Bernie, you could see things get real ugly, real quick. If Bernie can somehow get close to Hillary in delegates then there will be an all out war at the convention in Philadelphia this summer.
And to think the Democrats thought the GOP was the party that was burning down.
It is going to be an interesting summer. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
