What's their favorability for Trump? It'd be nice if they interfered in our elections to elect Bernie. They won't, nor would they think of it


Except they did, and it was in 2016. Well, not elect. They think you're a joke. They tried to help you nominate him.

Russia and Trump spent quite a bit of time buttering people like you up against Clinton. Stroking your sanders focus. Pretending to be you, so you wouldn't feel so alone. Telling you they know you're right. That it's all rigged. You got a bad deal. Hey your candidate looks good. Sorry for your system.

You ate it all.

Do you know why russia and republicans focus on you, to hurt the party?
I do.

It's the same reason they're grooming Gabbard.

First off, let's be clear...

Russians want a republican over a democrat 100% - and of all the republicans Trump is their #1 pick.

To the extent they want Bernie Sanders, it's because they believe he will be disruptive and easy to foment division against - not because they believe he will align with Russian Oligarch values and goals.

Great, those are choices I'd pick as well. Dunno why they dislike Yang though.

I bet those are your choices, comrade.

Has Trump taken steps to fight Russian interference in our elections?
The forest was shrinking, but the trees kept voting for the axe because its handle was made of wood and they thought it was one of them.

They are already favourable towards Bernie. Considering the bar for "interfering in the election" seems to be someone in Russia mentioning their opinion on a candidate they are "interfering" on Bernie's behalf.

I love it when benjjjamin puts on his all-seeing, all-knowing, movie-style voice. Try reading it in Morgan Freeman's voice... obviously it's all fiction.

The reason Russia supports Trump, Stein and Gabbard is because they are good for Russia and good for the world. They are also favourable towards Bernie - the candidate who won the democratic presidential nominee for 2016 before the democrats maliciously destroyed him. Propaganda is not interfering in an election, but the Bernie debacle is one reason why Russians may have been emboldened to act more aggressively this time around in their propaganda.

As has been observed before, Bernie and Trump are not the sort of opposites you might assume from left vs right theory, and it's possible for them both to be compatible with someone. This has happened with many berniebros voting Trump (12%) and vice versa.
