It does not surprise me in the least to see that on a site that leans as hard to the right as slashdot, Hillary Clinton is winning this poll by a wide margin.

Slashdot? Lean to the right? Ahahahahaha!

The candidate who is gaining the most traction against her right now is Bernie Sanders.

Who is at least honest. A bumbling idiot, but an honest and well-meaning one. Hillary Clinton is intelligent, but has no other redeeming qualities whatsoever.

Even more so, if a socialist starts to get attention, then Americans might start to understand what socialism actually is

Socialism is ... running out of other people's toilet paper.

Look, unlike Bernie Sanders, we're not complete idiots. We know that socialism doesn't work, can't work, has never worked, and will never work. It's been tried. It failed. Move on already.

Having a government try to completely control an economy right down to owning all the businesses and land and deciding on everyone's employment and housing does lead to certain economic inefficiencies.

Catastrophic and insoluble ones, yes. J. B. S. Haldane (himself a communist) pointed that out as far back as 1926.
