Who wants to give someone money who only wants to take it away?

He's too far left to win anything

Other than Bernie, they've got Booker and Biden. How exciting...

Lol, Bernie got way too "woke" over the past four years and he now sounds like an even more senile old idiot. Rather than talking about infrastructure, trade, and jobs, all of his old staples, he now wants to fight "homophobia, xenophobia, racism, bigotry, and sexism" because I'm sure those items are what his handlers said the hip millennials care about.

I hope bloated shrieks from BLM and other activist groups take his microphone and force him to sit idly by at every single one of his campaign trail engagements. That would literally be Bernie's hell, and he deserves every bit of it.

Why doesn't Bernie redistribute the $6 million he raised to the other, more needy campaigns?

6 million? No refunds!

Trump made that much money when he was sitting on the shitter.

Feb 21, 2019

He's a million years old?

Feb 21, 2019

He would be 79 years old at inauguration in January 2021, when he sits there either not the Democratic nominee or after becoming their nominee and losing. I can't believe this fact isn't talked about more often. He already looked pretty terrible, in my opinion, during the state of the union address. I know he wasn't happy to be there, but it was beyond just being enthused...

lmao threads like these demonstrate why undergraduates should study shit besides business in school.

If its a large field in the Dem primary i think he has a pretty decent chance (30+%) of getting the nomination. His voters are definitely the most passionate on the Dem side so if the other 12+ candidates split votes he can win.

Feb 21, 2019

At the moment, he's the best positioned in the field. However, if Joe Biden joins the filed (which is a near certainty), then Bernie's screwed. Sure, he's got a good voter base, but Biden quite literally represents the middle 60% of America, plus a good portion of right wingers who aren't Trump fans. I really, really hope he announces soon; we need a moderate voice right now

I agree i feel like Biden is the one candidate on the dem side that can rally a large portion of the base. People like Harris/Warren/Booker will all be splitting votes.

Feb 21, 2019

Let's assume Bernie wins the nomination. If he does so, he'll likely have had to move to the left on "intersectional" issues in order to win the primary. I think that is going to hurt him where it counts the most - with those white, blue collar Midwestern voters who already like Trump for the most part. Trump will be able to paint Bernie as not only a loon economically (and if the economy continues its strength through election day, the incumbent advantage will be all the more powerful) but also out of touch with what "really matters" for that important demographic.

My biggest fear is that a recession hits before election day, Bernie wins, and he actually has a chance to push through his regressive policies

Feb 21, 2019

I'm not sure what America's infatuation with nominating geriatric people for the most demanding job in the world is. Trump is already too old and spends most of his day with "executive time" aka watching cable TV news and tweeting. Bernie and Biden and Warren are all 70+ too.

I can't imagine Bernie would be an ideal candidate even for far-left progressives, especially with so many other Democrats, but populism cares more about cult of personalities.

...here's how Bernie can still win.

Feb 22, 2019

I feel like he'll have trouble appealing beyond his base, which is mostly young, white, and liberal. For the dems to win 2020, I feel like they're going to need to appeal to the middle, and Bernie might struggle to appeal to the middle.

Feb 22, 2019

You may or may not agree with his views but he is the one person who I feel that believes in what he says. I do not feel like he is trying to pander to anyone. He has been saying the same thing for decades. The "decades", part also a problem, though. He would be almost 80 if elected.

Feb 22, 2019

It'd be better if Trump defeated someone like Kamala Harris tbh.

Feb 22, 2019

Unfortunately I don't think Bernie or any current Democratic candidate has the courage to do what's necessary to save the country's future from the reactionaries. Oh well.

He's completely nuts and none of his policies are really thought through....and I'm fairly liberal.

I really hope the dems don't end up running with the weak people they have now when they could get someone amazing.

The best thing would be Lord Bezos entering as an independent and slaughtering everyone. Imagine same day garbage removal...
