Der Guardian analysiert die Wahlchancen Bernie Sanders’ gegenüber seinen demokratischen Mitkandidaten und Donald Trump: “The Republican campaign against Sanders would be gruesome. The likely result would look like Labour’s defeat under Corbyn”.

According to a recent Gallup poll, socialism is as popular as capitalism among Americans between the ages of 18 and 39 – and Sanders’ support is driven by young people.

Was man in den USA aber als “Sozialismus” versteht, würde in Mitteleuropa höchstens als Sozialdemokratie light durchgehen. Der Sandersche “Sozialismus” stellt noch nicht einmal die Systemfrage. Der herrschenden Klasse droht keine Gefahr.

Das Für und Wider einer Kandidatur Sanders’ gegen Trump lässt schnell entscheiden: Er habe keinen Plan, irgendetwas Entscheidendes durchsetzen zu können. “These promises are unrealistic, and Sanders’ ability to get them past Congress would be approximately nil.”

I say this because in 2016 I got a glimpse of the Republican party’s opposition research book on Sanders, which was so massive it had to be transported on a cart. The Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald, who got to see some of its contents, declared that “it was brutal. The Republicans would have torn [Sanders] apart.” (…) As they say in Sanders’ Brooklyn birthplace, fuhgeddaboudit.
