There has been a growing undercurrent in the Democratic presidential race which seems to get more and more obvious as the race draws tighter; Hillary wants to scare Democrats into believing that if the electorate doesn’t go with the “safe” option (Clinton), then they are handing the white house over to the GOP.

Even with recent polls in Iowa and New Hampshire showing that Bernie is neck and neck, and even leading Hillary in the battleground states, Clinton is still trying to color Bernie as the “risky” candidate.

In Sunday night’s debate, Hillary did it again, restating that we cannot allow Republicans to undo all of the hard work accomplished by president Obama. When she makes these attacks, they are a calculated blow at those who are in the “Bernie or bust” camp, vowing to vote for Bernie only, not just any Democrat for Democrat’s sake.

Hillary is using fear just like the GOP puppet Donald Trump to force voters to work against their own interests.

There are options other than Hillary, and Bernie is proving that, poll after poll.
