Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is the favored Democrat among Iowa State Fair attendees, according to results of an informal poll posted on the Iowa secretary of State website.

The poll shows Sanders leading Hillary Clinton 49 percent to 45 percent. Clinton opted not to speak at the Des Moines Register soapbox during her appearance at the fair, while Sanders spoke to a large crowd on Saturday.

While the two Democratic candidates received a little more than 1,000 votes total, Republican Donald Trump himself received 677 votes, outpacing Ben Carson, who had 470 votes, and Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), who had just170 votes.

    Clinton or Sanders. My, how far the Dems have fallen. If those are your only two choices, we’d all be better off if you Dims(Freudian slip) just stayed home on election day.

          Really laughed out loud on that one. At one time, they would have been better choices. However, now that Disney has forced their (citizen) employees to train the H1-B visa replacements, or be fired immediately, maybe the trio’s new personas have become just as evil.

    What is the matter with people, anyways? Do people really want communism? Can’t they see through all this stuff? Why would anyone pick Hillary or Sanders? I just don’t get where their minds are.
