The left has gone so far left that they think Hillary Clinton sounds like a Republican.
Here’s what the Huffington Post is claiming:
While one poll had Hillary Clinton the winner of the debate, a closer look shows that this survey was “conducted for the pro-Clinton super-PAC Correct The Record.” In reality, Bernie Sanders won the second Democratic debate because he focused solely on veterans’ issues, Wall Street corruption and climate change. Most importantly, an online poll by DeRay McKesson of 42,575 votes showed 83 percent of respondents believed Bernie Sanders won the debate.

In addition, top Ohio Democrat Nina Turner switched from Clinton to Bernie Sanders just before the debate, signifying a major shift in an important swing state. Black Women 4 Bernie Tweeted a video of Ms. Turner explaining why she’s endorsing Bernie Sanders for president. While Clinton’s endorsements have little to do with her trustworthiness or leadership skills, and everything to do with political power within the Democratic Party, Ms. Turner explains in the video exactly why Bernie’s message resonates with her and millions of other Americans. “He should be the president of the United States of America,” says Ms. Turner, and I agree completely in this video.
In contrast, Bernie’s challenger sounded like a Republican. Clinton said the words “war” seven times, “jihadist” four times, “terrorist” three times, and spoke about “radical jihadists” and “jihadi radicalism.” Taking a play out of the Bush/Cheney playbook, Clinton evoked 9/11 when asked about Wall Street donors. In a bizarre defense for accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars from Wall Street firms, Hillary Clinton evoked the emotions of September 11, 2001. As a result, Martin O’Malley pounced upon the irrational response to a legitimate question.
The left wants Hillary to go further left, which she’ll probably do if she needs the votes.
