Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’ wife Jane told Wolf Blitzer that the Democratic runner-up would have “absolutely” had a better shot to defeat Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton but there’s not much use talking about it now.
In an interview on CNN Friday, Blitzer asked Mrs. Sanders, “Do you think your husband would have had a better chance at beating Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton did?”
“Absolutely,” she said. “But it doesn’t matter now.”
Senator Sanders chose not to relitigate the issue, saying, “what good does it do now?” in an interview on CNN Thursday.
Virtually every poll that came out during the primaries showed Sanders outperforming Clinton against Trump.
Indeed, a newly released pre-election poll shows that Sanders would have destroyed Trump, far outperforming Clinton.
