Fox News Poll shows Bernie Sanders most Electable and Honest

Just like every other online poll shows, Fox News shows Bernie is kicking some serious ass. But I'll bet a million dollars of Bill O'Reilly's money that he won't be reporting this story.

A Fox News poll asks, "If the election were held today, who would you vote for?"

Here are the results as of 2 p.m. (PST) on Christmas Day (12/25/15) with 67,477 votes....

Bernie Sanders 50%
Donald Trump 21%
Hillary Clinton 14%
Ted Cruz 6%
Ben Carson 4%
Marco Rubio 4%
Jeb Bush 1%

Another Fox News poll asks, "Which Presidential candidate do you find the most truthful?"

Here are the results as of 2:10 p.m. (PST) on Christmas Day (12/25/15) with 22,400 votes....

Bernie Sanders 70%
Donald Trump 13%
Hillary Clinton 10%
Ben Carson 3%
Ted Cruz 3%
Marco Rubio 1%
Jeb Bush 1%

According to a new national poll by Quinnipiac University released last Tuesday, Bernie Sanders would easily beat Donald Trump in a head-to-head matchup in the November 2016 presidential election (by a margin of 51 percent to 38 percent), while Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton by a lesser margin of 47 to 40 percent.

  • Counter Punch: Poll Scam at TIME: Sanders Wins Online Poll, Gets Snubbed by Editors

Every single online poll shows Bernie Sanders overwhelming beating Hillary Clinton:

  • Poll: A comprehensive survey of more than 75,000 voters in all 50 states conducted over several months shows Sanders has the highest approval rating of any U.S. Senator.
  • Poll: Bernie Sanders is the most "electable" candidate in either party.
  • Poll: www.Democrats.Com (with 130,000 votes) had Bernie leading Hillary 46% to 32% (And Bernie won all 3 of their polls).
  • ALL online polls showed Bernie winning the first and second and third Democratic debates by landslides.
  • Bernie won the TIME reader's choice for Person of the Year and a face-off with Hillary Clinton by landslides.
  • When it came to actual votes by its members, Democracy for America, the Working Families Party, and the Communications Workers of America chose Bernie by landslides.
  • Editor's note: Even my humble poll on the right side of this page shows Bernie way ahead of the pack.

So it's very odd that only the media/corporate sponsored polls almost always shows Hillary leading Bernie (link and link), when every single online poll shows the exact opposite. Are the media pundits, union leaders and politicians all trying to imply that it's mostly Bernie Sanders' supporters who always vote in these online polls — even at Fox News — and not Hillary supporters? If that's the case, then at the very least, wouldn't that also show an extreme lack of enthusiasm by Hillary supporters?

While these online polls aren't sanctioned by the powers-that-be as "scientific", by no stretch of the imagination can all these polls showing Bernie the clear winner just be an odd coincidence. The people are speaking loud and clear for Bernie, but the political duopoly is ignoring the will of the people. Maybe a "political" revolution is being too damn polite.

Fox News Poll Results - December 25, 2015


  1. hmmm? do you think this country is now an out and out plutocracy or oligarchy?
    I wonder , I ponder? hmmm could it be your vote doesn't count??

    hmmm, oh yes, I see it now. Clear as day. Say goodbye to small "d" democracy!

  2. SALONE: Bernie is doing better in Iowa against Hillary than Obama did in 2008.

    In 2008 Obama was out-hustled on street corners in New Hampshire by sign-carrying Clinton supporters, many bused in from New York, giving her a surprise victory.

    If Sanders wins Iowa and New Hampshire, and Clinton expectantly wins Nevada and South Carolina, the next contests are in Colorado, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Vermont — all of which occur March 1 — and all are seen as strong states for Sanders.

    Sanders now has 2.3 million contributions, which broke Obama’s record of 2.2 million donations at this time in the campaign.

    Twenty-seven percent of Democratic voters say economy and job are the most important issues, according to a mid-December national poll of Democratic voters by Monmouth University. In contrast, national security and terrorism were only cited by 20 percent of these voters as their top issue, followed by education (15 percent) and gun control (9 percent). There is an undercurrent here that pulls voters in Sanders’ direction.

    Most Democrats, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll, found most Democrats “strongly favor” (52 percent) a “Medicare for all” approach and many “somewhat favor” (24 percent), which is essentially what Bernie is calling for.

  3. Seattle Times (December 25, 2015) An apology to Bernie Sanders: Sanders has his shortcomings but he deserves praise for taking the high road in this campaign and sticking to the issues.

    * NOTE: It sounds like it's going to be a nice article...but it's not. This is from a comment I posted at the Seattle Times at 12:35 a.m. PST on Decemeber 26, 2015:

    "As for your supposed 'apology' — you use sarcasm like a long sharp knife, to be mercilessly plunged into the back of anyone who disagrees with you or Hillary ... THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT."

    * NOTE: About 99% of the reader's comments bashed the author of this post.

  4. Josh Uretsky (Bernie Sanders national data director) was fired for a data breach of the Clinton campaign.

    But it turns out that Josh Uretsky may have been an insider for the software company (NGP VAN) and the DNC — and leaked the news of the data breach to the media right after Bernie got two major enforcements from Democracy for America and the CWA union.

  5. Lil' Bernie doll of Bernie Sanders


    Emily Engel, the entrepreneur of BX Custom Sewn, created a Lil' Bernie doll. She creates each one by hand. Originally, she was charging $80 and donating a portion to the campaign — but with the great success of the doll, Engel maxed out her personal donation limit of $2,700.

    A petition and effort was started to get Lil' Bernie into the official Bernie Sanders campaign store. The problem that arose was finding a unionized U.S.-based manufacturer, which is a requirement of any item sold in the Bernie store. Even a conversation between Engel and Carina Driscoll (Bernie's stepdaughter), failed to lead to either help finding such a company.

    Engel is reopening sales at 12:01AM EST on December 26th for a limited run of 200 dolls. You can buy them by going to

    As Engel has maxed out her personal donation, the dolls are selling for $57 — which includes shipping. (And, of course, making your own donation is

    always encouraged!)
