People said Bernie tied in IA and won in NH because they were white states.

But Bernie won bigger in the majority-minority state of NV.

1. Isn't Nevada a Caucus State? That Matters.

 

If Bernie wins SC then I will see him as leading the race but not until then.

2. Curious why the caucus makes a difference? Is it the realignment when other aren't viable?

3. Looks like about 29% Hispanic and 9% Black ...

 

I never especially subscribed to that theory myself FWIW.

I mean ... they're ALL white people ... seems like they oughta have a pretty equal chance in a largely white state.

high % white population.

They're all white candidates, so ...

14. I think his campaign has pulled together a broad coalition.

 

I'll add that I'm not sure that running an anti-leftist campaign in the Democratic primary would be a good idea in this environment.

15. I've heard the argument Bernie has a ceiling because he only appeals to white working class.

 

Now that argument is dying and I hope nobody is cynical enough to turn that argument around. I'd hate to hear that Bernie can't win because he doesn't appeal enough to white working class voters.

17. People seem to forget

 

that Bernie was actually arrested in the United States in the 60s over civil rights. A lot of people talk equality, but Bernie has sacrificed for it. I too have a concern over the word socialist, but come on people, Bernie isnít the end of the Democrats. In fact, outside of Biden and his support for the unions, Bernie may be more for the American workers than any other candidate. Bloomberg on the other hand IS the end of the Democratic Party. Letís not forget we are the party of the working class first and foremost. Thatís what has hurt us in the past, especially in 2016. The Midwest working class went for Trump because they felt left behind.
