Despite shattering all types of attendance records and remaining competitive, if not better, than Hillary in a variety of polls, the mainstream media still doesn’t take Bernie Sanders seriously. Perhaps it’s because he’s constantly calling them out for being cheap corporate hacks, but Bernie could care less what they think of him anyway.
Regardless, Bernie Sanders supporters ( or anyone on the internet) have much to look forward to if this one University proves to be as accurate as it usually is.
Western Illinois University, for example, has amazingly predicted every presidential election since 1975 with 100 percent accuracy. Most recently, it correctly predicted in both 2007 and 2011 that Barack Obama would win in it all. So for anyone who’s a big poll slut, these guys are your ticket. The results of WIU’s 2015 mock election are in, and boy did they totally obliterate the mainstream media.
The WIU poll has Bernie Sanders not just winning the presidency, but doing so in a massive landslide.
Sure, Bernie comes well ahead of Hillary Clinton in nearly every likely match-up against any one of the GOP clown car posse, but nobody has been so bold as to predict a Bernie primary win AND landslide win in the general election.
Here’s how the poll broke down:
The WIU mock election, in which thousands of students from multiple schools form parties and caucuses and play out a small-scale election over the course of several days, has Bernie Sanders beating Hillary Clinton in 22 out of 26 primary states; Hillary Clinton survives past Super Tuesday, but loses out before the month of March is concluded.
Okay, so it’s December and we haven’t had a single primary yet. Further, pretty much anything can happen now until January in today’s nanosecond world of politics; but, when it comes to predicting presidential elections, WIU has proven it has the most credibility and foresight.
