If the goal is to stop Sanders.... CA needs special attention

He seems to be walking away with all of the almost 500 delegates in CA... That will be a big disadvantage for any candidate to overcome if he gets that many from just 1 state

1. A lot of that is thanks to Bloombergs enterance into the primaries. Biden is the candidate that

 

that Bloomberg has hurt the most, and Biden was the best chance to stop Sanders until Bloomberg entered the race

Just add Bloomberg and Biden, and then it becomes competitive in California

2. Biden was a damp squid until very, very recently

 

So I cannot blame Bloomberg (who wanted to stop Sanders and Warren) for entering the race

3. That is your view of course, but what Bloomberg has effectively done is increase the odds that

 

Sanders will be the nominee, and trump will have another four years

Biden has been hit from the left and the right since he entered the race, and still had the lead until Bloomberg entered the race

10. That is the GE goal

 

The primary goal is very different depending on the candidate you support

13. Limiting yourself to one and only one goal is short-sighted. At best.

9. No. That's NOT the goal. Wish you would keep this kinda thing to your candidate page

 

All it does here is make people sad and defensive.

Is there a particular policy of Sanders' that needs to be stopped? All of his policies align with the Dem party. Curious what you object to.

11. I don't think he can win and will have a negative effect on down ballot races

 

I think he will cost us the House and we won't get control of the Senate or the WH. We will also lose at the state and local levels, which means at the very least:

1. Redistricting will again be done to the republican's liking making it more harder for us for the next decade to win back the House
2. ACA might get defunded and we will be left with NO healthcare.
3. The megalomaniac in the WH will go unchecked

Not to mention the million other things that will happen if Republicans have total control of Washington

14. Fear doesn't have to be real to feel real, and I appreciate that.

 

Facts say Bernie will win the EC. Losing the Senate and House is a proposition that exists in fear only.
Bernie has the most enthusiasm and the strongest message that is agreed upon by the majority of people.
That's how the house turned blue in '18 - on enthusiasm for Dem agenda in health and immigration.
Bernie is not going to change. Priorities for the Dems aren't going to change (well, maybe more health stuff with a pandemic)

Republicans will lose. Especially if Bloomberg puts his money where his mouth is and supports Dems down ticket.
