Is Sanders the Best Bet to Beat Trump?

My Mum was from the USA, so I have always been interested in American affairs and politics. This autumn,  the American votes will elected a new President as Head of State. (Unlike Sweden or Japan, they lack a monarch and has to elected a Head of State instead.)

It seems like Donald Trump will be the Republican party nominee. He is an unpolished but successful businessman, rich, but has no political experience. I do not think he would make a good President.

The Democrat party has two main contestants: Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Clinton has more political experience, but a lot of affairs behind her and is not a very strong candidate, albeit being in the centre of the political field. Sanders is more leftish. He is the outsider, while Clinton is the establishment candidates. I guess there is a lot of truth in this article,  that says Sanders would be the candidates who can beat Trump.
