Political Blog: Hillary Clinton Leads General Election, But For How Much Longer?

However, Clinton is battling against many barriers that could destroy her chance to be the Party’s nominee, leading many American voters to question whether she is reliable and trustworthy enough to be the next President of the United States.

But one barrier in particular is another who seeks the Democratic nomination: Bernie Sanders.

Sanders, although, might not have some certain achievements as Clinton.  Hillary Clinton has been in the spotlight since 1993, the year her husband, Bill, was elected the 42nd President of the United States. Since then, Hillary has taken every single chance she has gotten to be a public advocate for all.

Clinton’s determination has been showing for decades as well. It means so much to women and children whom have been suffering for so long to see Hillary Clinton at Beijing, China on Sept. 5, 1995 to give her prestigious speech on Women’s rights and also how Clinton never backed down to protect families with the Clinton Healthcare Plan of 1993.  The plan failed. However, Clinton never gave up.

That determination showed when Clinton ran for President against Barack Obama in 2008. In the Caucus Election Clinton earned 17,493,836 votes, whereas Barack Obama earned 17, 535, 458 votes. 

As Obama soon became the 44th President, he chose Clinton to be his Secretary of State.

During that time,  Clinton chose to be an LGBT, pro-life, pay equality, and immigration reform advocate. You can easily see how many Americans would like her.

However, Hillary says one thing, and means the other.

“Marriage has got historic, religious and moral content that goes back to the beginning of time and I think a marriage is as a marriage has always been, between a man and a woman,” said Clinton.

Hence how Americans are very skeptic of her. Clinton is all not what she appears to be.

Americans, though, are not skeptic of Bernie Sanders. Compared to Clinton, he makes her accomplishments seem little to nothing.

Bernie Sanders is a senator from Vermont, and seems to have made the most out of the office he comes from and has bigger plans for the White House. Sanders, unlike Clinton, had been involved in the Civil Rights Movement and fought for LGBT rights in the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

Sanders stood by LGBT members by saying one simple line in his speech.

“Of course all citizens deserve equal rights,” said Sanders. “It’s time for the Supreme Court to catch up to the American people and legalize gay marriage.”

See the difference?

According to CNN, Hillary Clinton may be leading the national polls  by 42 percent, but Sanders is holding at 35 percent.

Can Hillary Clinton maintain a national average as her past takes a toll on her? Or will Bernie Sanders a ‘true advocate’ lead the national poll in a matter of months?

Below are Clinton’s and Sanders’ campaign videos. See what candidate you support the most.
