Many times, they will reference Hillary Clinton as the eventual nominee, even though no states have even gone to the voting booth to cast a single vote. Not a single vote has been cast, and the Main-Stream-Media many times will reference Hillary as the eventual nominee. This is madness.
Even if Bernie Sanders just had a small chance of winning the nomination, they should still give him the respectable coverage.
So where does Bernie Sanders stand? And what are his odds of winning the Democratic Nomination?
Without further ado, I'd like to shed some light on Senator Bernie Sanders actual chance of winning, because I believe he has very good odds, and here is why;
For one, the biggest restraint in Bernie Sanders campaign is the silence the media has given him in this race. They often downplay him as having no chance, or completely leave him off of coverage.
Without media coverage, it is incredibly difficult for a lot of potential voters to even hear the name "Bernie Sanders," Much less go out and vote for someone they have never even heard of.
Despite all of this, Bernie Sanders is surging in the polls. According to National Polls at the beginning of the election cycle, Bernie Sanders is up over 30% since he has announced running for president, while Hillary Clinton has remained stagnant or lost percentage points.
The first state in the election cycle is Iowa. I
In Iowa, Bernie Sanders is favoring very well with Iowans. According to a new poll released by CBS, Bernie Sanders gains 45% of the state vote just barely losing to Hillary Clinton, who stands at 50% and this is still over a month away from the election.
This figure is the highest Bernie Sanders has gotten, and it's logical to think that Bernie Sanders will only gain traction over the holiday season.
Not to mention, Bernie Sanders is boasting a 14% lead by the same CBS Poll in coverage of New Hampshire. New Hampshire is worth even more delegates than Iowa, and Bernie Sanders winning this could front the Democratic Nominee with a lead going into the other 48 states.
The media will start to cover Bernie Sanders as a serious candidate and Hillary Clinton's campaign may go into full panic mode.
