Poll Context: In an interview on ‘Face The Nation’, Hillary Clinton hinted that she may invite Bernie Sanders to be her running mate.
“I’m three million votes ahead of Senator Sanders, nearly 300 pledged delegates ahead of him. He has to make his own mind up.”
“But I was very heartened to hear him say last week that he is going to work seven days a week to make sure Donald Trump doesn’t become president. And I want to unify the party.
I see a great role and opportunity for him and his supporters to be part of that unified party, to move into not just November to win the election against Donald Trump, but to then govern based on the progressive goals that he and I share.”
So 1. Would Sanders supporters accept a Clinton / Sanders aliiance and 2. Would a Clinton / Sanders ticket be tough for Trump to beat in November?
