One major difference between Bernie Sanders and Hillary is that she come on to the political stage with a lot of baggage. You might say, YUGE!

As for Bernie? You decide.

Special Prosecutor for Hillary? - Rasmussen Reports™

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters believe the Justice Department should name an independent prosecutor to decide whether criminal charges should be brought against Clinton for sending and receiving classified information through a private e-mail server while she was secretary of State. Thirty-three percent (33%) disagree, while 13% are undecided. (To see survey question wording,click here.)

As it now stands, Attorney General Loretta Lynch will determine whether to prosecute Clinton if an FBI investigation determines she has broken the law. Those calling for an independent replacement point to a potential conflict of interest, given that as a key player in a Democratic administration Lynch would be deciding whether to prosecute the leading contender for her own party's presidential nomination this year.

The partisan breakdown is predictable: 76% of Republicans and 59% of voters not affiliated with either major party believe the Justice Department should hire an independent prosecutor to handle the Clinton issue, but only 29% of Democrats agree. Fifty-four percent (54%) of voters in Clinton's party do not see a need for a special prosecutor, but 17% more aren't sure.

Most voters still believe it’s likely Clinton broke the law by sending and receiving classified information through the server, but they are far less convinced that serious charges will be brought against her.
