Sanders Vows to ‘Defeat Most Dangerous President in History’
Socialist Presidential candidate declares election victory in Iowa
Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., declared he is the one to beat President Donald Trump in a 2020 face-off.
Sanders said during CNN town hall that he does not consider himself a Democrat front runner, but said he had the strongest campaign.
"We are the strongest campaign to defeat the most dangerous president in modern American history," Sanders said.
Sanders, who is neck and neck with Joe Biden and leading Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-N.H., and Pete Buttigieg, is projected to beat Trump is a theoretical matchup 49 percentage points to 45.3, RealClearPolitics polling data reports.
The number suggests he is as close as Biden is to beating Trump, polling at 50 percentage points to 44.7.
But Voters worry the current infighting among Democrats will prevent them from beating the president.
Sanders blasted Trump for his "ugliness, racism, homophobia and religious bigotry," and said: "I have zero doubt that we will bring the party together."
Sanders packed up from Iowa and moved on to New Hampshire, despite the previous botched vote count up.
Earlier this week, supporters of Sanders stormed out of a Democratic caucus, calling it a"joke" and a "waste of time" after beggining with double the support of other canidates, before ending in a five-way tie.
"We've got enough of Iowa, I think we should move on to New Hampshire," Sanders said of the ordeal.
"It is really sad that the Democratic Party of Iowa, if I may say so, screwed up the counting process quite so badly."

Both Sanders and Buttigieg claimed victory in the state.
On Thursday, the Iowa Democratic Party (IDP)reported 100 percent of the votes, three nights after the caucuses closed.
Last year, Sanders lamented on his election loss to Hillary Clinton in 2016, claiming the system was "rigged."
The socialist presidential candidate said he would have beaten Trump if the election against Clinton not been “rigged against” him.
Sanders bowed out of the 2016 election just before the Democratic National Convention and endorsed Clinton for the presidency in her race against Trump.
“No, some people say that if maybe that system was not rigged against me, I would have won the nomination and defeated Donald Trump,” Sanders said.
“That’s what some people say.”
