Winning does not give you a mandate!!!

______________

It also doesn't mean your ideas are correct. It just means more people voted for you.

Obama has a mandate to do as he promised during the election, as does every member of Congress Republican, Democrat and Bernie Sanders. If a Congressman from either party won their district with over 60% of the vote (plenty do) why shouldn't they follow thru on their campaign promises? Afterall they have to face to the voters again. Obama doesn't.
