Shocking new poll shows who is leading the Democrat for president in 2020
The Socialist Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, who won the coveted New Hampshire primary in his unsuccessful bid to upset Crooked Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Democrat primaries, continues to garner more support than any other presidential hopeful in the party which he uses to run under when it’s convenient. He actually beat out party superstars such as former Vice President ‘Crazy Uncle’ Joe Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren.
Most Democratic primary voters, 58%, are undecided or could not think of a name when asked whom they would support. But sadly, the poll found that Democratic primary voters most readily mentioned the socialist Bernie Sanders at 14%, Joe Biden at 5%, Hillary Clinton at 5%, Elizabeth Warren at 4%, and Joseph Kennedy at 4%.
Sanders’ support actually rose when the respondents were provided a list of potential candidates. This could be due to Democrat voters having short memory spans due to prior drug use. When given a list of front-runners, the poll revealed 31 percent support for the self-described socialist, compared to 24 percent for Biden, and 13 percent for Warren. The survey comes out as Sanders is planning his second trip to New Hampshire in two months, though he has declined to say if he intends to run in 2020.

Can We Talk About Bernie Sanders And His Wife Being Under FBI Investigation?
Oh, the ghosts of Burlington College are back to haunt the Sanders. In 2016, reports about Sen. Bernie Sander’s (I-VT) wife, Jane, running the college into the ground, coupled with his tax plan, made for some good cannon fodder against the self-described democratic socialist’s financially reckless agenda during the 2016 primaries. Yet, what was missed was the fact that the FBI began peering through the financial records of the college, which had secured a $10 million loan, $3.65 million of which came from the Church, to expand the campus along Lake Champlain.
The local Catholic diocese had owned the property and had just settled on sexual abuse charges that totaled over $17 million. They were eager to sell. Still, the college’s plan to expand seemed lofty. It only had an enrollment of around 200. In short, this expansion project sunk the college, but the loan to secure the purchase involved Sen. Sanders, who reportedly placed pressure on the People’s United Bank for the loan.
Yes, Democrats will deflect saying that, Brady Toensing, Trump’s campaign chair in Vermont, was the one who dug into this transaction and found possible evidence of bank fraud. Still, the couple has dismissed the claims until now; lawyering up for an investigation that has spanned months that was started under the Obama administration. Politico had a lengthy piece on the subject (via Politico):
Sanders and his wife have been trying to ignore the federal investigation since reporters for VTDigger, an online publication, confirmed the FBI’s involvement in April. The original request for an investigation into the potential bank fraud did indeed come from Brady Toensing, an attorney who chaired Trump’s Vermont campaign, and whose January 2016 letter to the U.S. attorney for Vermont put federal agents on the trail.
On January 10, 2016, in the midst of Sanders’ sudden stardom—just weeks before the votes in Iowa and New Hampshire—the U.S. attorney for Vermont was sent a “Request for an Investigation into Apparent Federal Bank Fraud.”
Backed by six exhibits and a dozen documents, the four-page letter described how Jane Sanders had “orchestrated” the purchase of 33 acres along Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont’s largest city, where her husband had minted his populist political brand as mayor. The deal closed in 2010, when the senator’s wife was president of Burlington College, a tiny, obscure, nontraditional school that always seemed to be struggling for students and funds. The letter alleged that to secure a $10 million loan and execute her grand plan to expand the college, Jane Sanders had falsified and inflated nearly $2 million that she’d claimed donors had pledged to repay the loans.
Sanders had “successfully and intentionally engaged in a fraudulent scheme to actively conceal and misrepresent material facts from a federal financial institution,” the letter alleged. It pressed for a federal investigation into potential bank fraud.
