Bernie Sanders Leads TYT Turk of the Year Voting

Bernie Sanders Leads ‘TYT’ ‘Turk of the Year’ Voting; Trump, Wasserman Schultz Lead ‘Jerk of the Year’
Scott Hough
Inquisitr

Each year, since 2012, The Young Turks has been honoring an individual as “Turk of the Year.” That year, the online progressive news organization named Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by Taliban gunman for learning to read and writing a blog when she was 12-years-old, as previously examined by the Inquisitr, as their choice.

2016 presidential candidate and U.S. Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders leads the voting for Turk of the Year, currently being shown with the approval of 51 percent of voters. Others in contention include the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who have the support of 25 percent of those polled; TYT host Jordan Chariton; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein; and Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King.

The 2015 Turk of the Year went to this year’s leader, Bernie Sanders. Jerk of the Year went to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. When he announced Bernie Sanders as the winner in 2015, TYT host and co-founder Cenk Uygur spoke of the then-current polls indicating that the senator would win against every Republican presidential candidate, including Donald Trump. Uygur described Sanders’ willingness to rail against what the senator calls the “one percent” and Wall Street as a defining characteristic of the New York City native’s campaign and political rock-star power.

11. I agree, but many here claim he is not.

 

He is more like FDR than many of today's Democrats.

12. Yup.

 

As you say, many here root for labels instead of policies. It is very disheartening.

2. Bernie's great, but I'm done with TYT.

They're part of the problem, as far as I'm concerned.

3. Just Shows How Silly These Polls Are

You may not like Wasserman -Schultz but to compare her equally with Trump is indicative of a held grudge and complete nonsense. She, for all her faults, isn't the one amping up the nuke race.

4. Rock stars don't lose their primary by 3.7 million votes.

 

Hillary Clinton IS the rock star, and don't you forget it, Young Turds.

7. I'm with you. Cenk can take his awards and shove

 

them up his ass.

Is it wrong that I hate the far left almost as much as the far right? Like, I legit want bad things to happen to Jimmy Dore. I despise that liberal puritan dickwad.

6. It's clear that American politics is more about personality than policy.

Whoever has the bigger, more telegenic personality will win, damn the facts.
