Gallup Finds: ‘Clinton Preferred for Experience; Sanders for Care’

Eric Zuesse

On March 31st, Gallup headlined, “Clinton Preferred for Experience; Sanders for Care,” and reported that, overwhelmingly, the top-listed reason that Hillary Clinton voters give for preferring her over her competitor Bernie Sanders is “Capable of being president/Qualified/Experienced.”

Here is the “experience” that impresses Democratic Party voters so much. Click on that (and on the links in it, if you want even more depth), to see what her record of achievement in public office has been.

Is there any sane reason why those voters prefer that record of achievement to the record of achievement of her competitor, Bernie Sanders?

What does it say about those Democratic Party voters?
