Bernie Sanders, the other candidate for the Democratic Party nominee is beginning to be taken seriously. Sanders now leads Clinton by 27 points in New Hampshire. Sanders is running in a dead heat with Clinton in Iowa.
Sanders is part of the socialist wing of the Democratic Party. Through eight years of Obama, the Socialist Democrats have emerged as the main force of the Democratic Party. This has been a long time in the making (think: Occupy Wall Street, #BlackLivesMatter).
Socialist Democrats have vied for control of the Democratic Party since the conservative coalition collapsed and much of the Deep South transformed into a Republican stronghold. That transformation began with Nixon's Southern Strategy and peaked with the Republican Revolution when the last of the conservative Democrats retired.

Those of the myopic mainstream media assumed Hillary Clinton would follow Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton is not the heir to Obama. Bernie Sanders is the proper candidate to replace Obama in this natural progression of polarization.
Hillary Clinton is running for the wrong party. Hillary belongs with all of the other ex-conservative Democrats, the neoconservatives in the Republican Party who have joined ranks with the long-established internationalist-interventionist Rockefeller Republicans.
While the Democratic Party has been pulling hard left, the GOPher Party has been moving center-left to the soft liberal internationalist position. Even guys like Rand Paul advocate open borders (see: RAND PAUL GOES FULL RETARD, SIDES WITH DEMOCRATS AND TURNS HIS BACK ON WORKING-CLASS GENERATIONAL AMERICANS). They all do — Cruz, Rubio, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell.
True American Conservatism is a special kind of conservatism. It's a Bill of Rights nationalism that strives for the benefits of all citizenry by establishing a general welfare.
Trump represents a new dimension in USA politics — working-class, Bill of Rights nationalism. Trump is changing the game in a game that has been changing for awhile. Trump is the true right-wing, conservative candidate. Trump is trying to preserve the USA as it was before the ongoing international drift of NATO-UN-NAFTA-WTO-TPP.
Third party candidates generally offer the alternative to the political establishment. Trump is that candidate already.
Trump is the true American Conservative in this race, already. Also, Trump is the third-party style alternative-to-the-establishment candidate already.
Authentic Conservatism doesn't mean moral prudery. Only dimwits associate church-going religion and chastity with conservatism.
Progressivism promotes specific welfare, and specific subsidy. Progressivism promotes open-borders internationalism. Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan and even Ted Cruz — these guys are left-wing, internationalist republicans who push for the interests of major shareholders in oligopolist transnational corporations. They're all anti-nationalists.
Likely, Trump will beat any candidate in this election. Considering that Sanders is the true heir to Obama, here is a good contrast between Obama idealism and Trump idealism.
Obama: "They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
"If you've got a business—you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."
Trump: Close the borders. Build a wall. No more bad trade deals. I built a great company and you can to in a real America. I'm 100% for the Second Amendment. I'm an evangelical Christian. Let's make America great again.
Is there any wonder why Trump is winning?
Understanding the alignment in USA politics.
The Democratic Party is the left party, the party of socialism, the party of communitarianism (see: BEATING THE DRUMS FOR OBAMA TRIBALISM). The party still has vestiges of Blue Dog / conservative Democrats. The Democratic Party is an open-borders internationalist party but is against reciprocal free trade. Thus the party opposes NAFTA, CAFTA-DR and TPP. Yet, party favors supremacy of internationalist organizations with diminished sovereignty for the United States. This party appeals to welfare seekers and those of ethnicity, especially poorly-educated, low IQ ethnicity.
Main faces: Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama
The Democratic-Republican Party is an unofficial center-left party that one day likely will come into existence. Democratic-Republicans are a pro-big business internationalist party that favors heavily immigration as a means to suppress wages. This is a pro-Wall Street party. This is a pro-international interventionist party. They are major champions of the status quo. This party appeals to college-educated guilt-ridden, self-loathing liberals. This party appeals to lawyers, those who work in the medical establishment and mainstream government workers.
Main faces: Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz
The True American Party / The USA Party is an unofficial right party. It is the true conservative party for Americans. They are trying to restore Bill of Rights Individualism and the Protestant work ethic that shaped the USA from the founding of the USA until 1965. This party is pro-nationalist and anti-interventionist but with a strong military. This is a walk softly but carry a big stick party. This party appeals to mainstream, Main Street working-class Americans, no-college white Americans with at least Ellis Island ancestry if not earlier.
Main Faces: Donald Trump
