Bernie Sanders fans have lots of energy and however wring it is, they believe their ideas are best for the country. Unfortunately for them, lots of other voters disagree. As a result, Bernie voters are starting to feel a little frustrated that their passion isn’t translating into wins.

FEEL THE FAIL: Bernie Sanders Supporters Are Sad Because They Can’t Win Any Elections
Supporters of socialist Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders are disappointed because they have been unable to translate their fervent enthusiasm for big government and far-left policies into election victories.
Sanders and his progressive political action organization, Our Revolution, have nearly nothing to show for their robust support for several candidates in recent elections.
“We’re really good on the messaging and the rallies,” Wendy Carrillo, a Sanders-supporting immigrants’ rights activist told Politico. “But it needs to translate into votes.”
The collective string of losses is impressive.
Last week, for example, despite physically assaulting a reporter, Republican Greg Gianforte defeated Rob Quist, a Democrat for whom Sanders had personally campaigned, by 50 percent to 44 percent of the vote.
Sanders also campaigned in recent weeks with Democrat Heath Mello when he ran for mayor of Omaha, Nebraska. The incumbent mayor, Republican Jean Stothert, defeated Mello with 53 percent of the vote.
America isn’t a socialist country…yet.
Lots of people want to make sure that never happens. As long as that’s the central pillar of Bernie style politics, his supporters are likely to keep losing.
