"No. I don't see the point of Bernie debating Trump.  It will just be a smear campaign against Hilary.  Bernie is not going to be the nominee.  He's just doing it for the money."

 Bessie Williams

"No.  This is getting beyond ridiculous.  I think we have heard enough from both of them.'

 Char Stephenson

"No.  Bernie Sanders should just go and sit down somewhere.  He is not doing anything to help the party.  The Democrats took him in and now he is working against us. I think he is a desperate old man who wants a little glory before he is gone and forgotten." 

Charles Neal

"Well, I was in Bernie's corner at first, but now I think he is going to hurt the Democrats' chances if he continues on.  He should be working to unify the party.  He certainly should not be debating Donald Trump."

Bobbie Simmons

"Absolutely not.  Bernie should not even be in this race.  He has had his positions heard and nobody cares but the young people who probably want vote any way.  Instead of debating Trump, he should try to get the people together and rally around Hilary.  Debating Trump would be of not good use."

Charles Howard

"I don't really care.  I am not following this election stuff.  On election day, I am going to go and vote for my candidate and be through with it."
