WASHINGTON — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, hear constant warnings from allies about congressional losses in November if the party nominates Bernie Sanders for president. Democratic House members share their Sanders fears on text-messaging chains. Bill Clinton, in calls with old friends, vents about the party getting wiped out in the general election.

Ex left liberals are just as crazy as far right conservatives. They both have a European desire to rule.

The russians and republicans have been busy.

So voters who dont want sanders are part of a big conspiracy?
:lmao:


Where is his coalition of young voters? They did NOT turn out anywhere but California.
:lmao:


If he does not get the nomination, how will he sabotage the winner? His ego and bernie boys are out of control.

Sanders has shone his disdain for Black people and Black voters in a variety of ways:

Skipping out on the Selma March

Calling Southern Black voters low education

Not reigning in the online Bernie Bros by speaking out against their harassment

Lack of a Congressional record helping minorities

Questionable spokes people with foot in mouth disease

All that going on, but no anti sanders headlines this board. The republicans and russians are good at focusing on the candidates that put fear in them.

Overall, this is going to be an interesting election.
With Bernie supporters staying home or going to vote for tRUmp.
FBS vs ADOS not voting waiting on tangibles!!!
People dissatisfied with the choice of Biden.
People who voted for tRump and are dissatisfied with him, who vote for him out of disdain or who may stay home.

Trump will beat Sanders from pillar to post, the republicans will take control over MOST states, the US House or representatives and keep control of the Senate.

Sanders voters did not turn out for him, I have no expectation they will turn out for anyone else.

With a moderate, the democrats have a better chance.

2020 Democrats learned the lesson of Trump's GOP takeover: Unite or die


Sanders watched what happened when Trump took on a crowded field and saw a path to the nomination for himself in 2020. This might help explain why the democratic socialist from Vermont did not make more of an effort to reach out to supporters of other candidates after strong showings in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.

Sanders’s qualified defense of Fidel Castro on a recent episode of “60 Minutes” reflected his trademark refusal to change his tune for moderate voters. The Vermont senator’s fans appreciate what they see as his bluntness and authenticity, but for those more skeptical of Sanders, his refusal to ever tack to the center looks like a worrying ideological rigidity.

Sanders did not anticipate that Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer might learn from 2016 and adapt.

But the truth is that the only organized action taken by establishment figures was to remove themselves from consideration, of their own free will, to narrow the options for voters, who then overwhelmingly went to the polls on Tuesday to support Biden.

The massive turnout numbers — up exponentially from 2016 — are not a sign of a Democratic electorate that is dissatisfied with fewer options, but rather an indication of excitement that the party is uniting around a consensus pick to take on Trump.
