Perhaps Bernie Sanders is refusing advice from Hillary Clinton because her approval rating is lower than Donald Trump’s

Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders informed the hosts of The View that he is not planning to seek counsel from Hillary Clinton, much as some of his rivals including Massacchussetts Democrat Elizabeth Warren are doing. Part of this is probably because Clinton bashed Sanders in her post-campaign memoir, or the fact that her aides are attacking him for…campaigning for her?

But there is also a rational reason to avoid her, and it relates to how Donald Trump Bush-bashed his way to the presidency. Politics is largely a popularity contest, and you avoid unpopular figures:
