So, I rolled into a thread today, and it was asking a question - "If bernie had won the primary, would we still have the same republican majority in congress as we have today?"
The answers, from people claiming to be everything from university professors to Ph.D holders, to students of politics and history, were giving thoughtful, considered about how Bernie would have won.
For all that supposed political expertise and intelligence, not one of them managed to stumble across the actual answer, which is yes. Since the US doesn't elect a new congress till November 2018, we'd have literally exactly the same republican majority congress if Bernie had won. Changing the president doesn't magically change who the members of congress are.
Seriously, how can a bunch of supposedly smart people, who consider themselves politically aware, have absolutely no idea how the government works?
