US Presidential Elections: Bernie Sanders has the best policies - by Noam Chomsky

Renowned American academic Noam Chomsky says Bernie Sanders has the best policies of the Democratic presidential contenders, but does not have a real chance to win in a political system where elections are "mainly bought".
