2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders told the audience at Tuesday’s Democratic presidential debate that "credible" polls show that he will beat President Donald Trump in the elections.

Sanders said Americans are looking for bold change, and polls reflect that.

But one of Sanders’ fellow Democratic candidates gave him a reality check by reminding him that polls showed a similar story for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.

“Every credible poll that I have seen has me beating Donald Trump, including the battleground states of Michigan where I won the Democratic primary, Wisconsin, where I won the Democratic primary, and Pennsylvania,” Sanders said.

Polling averages back up Sanders’ claim.

But Hillary Clinton leading Trump ahead of the 2016 election, as Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan pointed out.

“Hillary Clinton was winning in the polls too,” Ryan said.

Clinton ended up gaining the popular vote by 2.1%.

But Trump won the election with 306 electoral college votes.

Too far left to win

Sanders also said he would support free health care for illegal immigrants during the Democratic presidential debate.

When asked about the issue of healthcare and illegal aliens, Sanders said:

"I happen to believe that when I talk about health care as a human right, that applies to all people in this country."

The Democratic socialist added that “under a Medicare for All, single-payer” system, taxpayers could afford it.

Too far left?

We think so.
