So, Sanders goes on CNN for a town hall, and gets asked an uncomfortable question.

CNN is immediately attacked by Sanders supporters for "unfairly" seeding the audience with operatives of the Democratic party.

Then, he goes on FOX News (widely accepted here as a right wing propaganda venue) for a town hall, and gets cheered. This is hailed by Sanders supporters as completely genuine.

What's wrong with this picture?

...reached out to all 50 states electronically (at a minimum). In what manner? With what results? How about we find out before saying they did nothing to change our votes.

Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million. Yes? The Mad King is sitting in the White House through NO fault of Hillary's. The election was rigged -- just as Trump said so many times. Wouldn't you rather have Hillary Clinton running our government?

Many more of us wanted (and voted for) Hillary Clinton than wanted (and voted for) Trump. That piece of it is what maintains the last shred of my hope in my fellow citizens.

Acknowledging all this does not make us sore losers -- it is an acceptance of grim reality that should spur us all on to fight.

Yes, a tremendous number of people were conned. Not much new for an election. It was new that some of the conning came from the Russians. But mostly what the Russians did was to "tempt" peoples worst instincts. But in the end they chose to vote for the moron.

Elections have consequences and I hope for a few cycles some people have learned this.

Second, a lot of Bernie Sanders supporters werenít big fans of Clinton. So Stein campaigning on the idea that Clinton and Trump were similar made it harder for Clinton to win over those voters ó even if Sanders voters didnít vote for Stein, they may have stayed home out of disgust.

49. Republicans who hated Trump, hated Hillary more based on fabricated info.

 

The fact that "Lock her up" HRC received nearly 3 million more votes than the real criminal is so haunting. And it causes many of us to resent Bernie's supporters.

By favoring Capitalism over Democracy, stupid Stephen Moore and DT are saying we don't deserve any form of healthcare coverage. We need a candidate to point out the clear goals of the GOP. Denying Climate Change and an action to protect us, costs to rectify our delay keep increasing along with the side effects - Earth's and peoples' Healthcare.

Jay Inslee may be the most astute of them all. But American voters seem pretty darned confused. Professor Warren could help us understand our mission.

(I realize I'm meandering. But wanted to express my deepest concerns.)

Please read my disclaimer.

BS supporters' endless chants fed the "lock her up" crowd watching from home in the rust belt and across the whole country, with no concern about how they were actually helping Trump by that point in the campaign.. This year those same CA supporters chant his name even though his most unrealistic policy proposals would face massive obstruction in Congress.

To me, his way or no way is no way to follow DT.

It is going to require more than votes, money, doctors, nurses and facilities. It's going to take time and most likely a gradual move as we build hospitals. Maybe convert insurance companies into urgent care facilities?

Per this well sourced video, Biden and Sanders are effectively tied. However, compared with the field, Sanders continues to improve. Moreover, in 2016, Sanders didn't have the time or infrastructure to scale out to all 50 states. This cycle he does and will.

Care to wager that Sanders will win the primary and multiple flyover states? I'm in for real money.

35. Vermont has the same demographics as NH. But unlike NH, it is reliably Democratic.

 

Somehow that wasn't the case before Bernie became popular there. It was a reliably Republican state. If he can do that for VT, he can do that for the other formerly reliably blue states like WI, MI and PA. If nominated, he will win the flyover states, unlike the candidate we nominated last time.

97. Yeah, Vermont is such a haven that its only Black legislator was threatened out of public office

 

It's too bad Kiah Morris didn't have a nationally known Senator from her state who could have put a spotlight on her plight and supported her loudly and proudly....Someone who could have used her case on the Sunday shows such a senator would frequent so often to illustrate how Trump has increased hate crimes in the country, even in reliably blue Vermont....

MI, WI and PA than Biden. The voters there seem to hate nafta and other trade deals. You canít win those states without former Obama voters who turned trump. But they can be won back, just not by Biden who is exact copy of HC policy wise. We donít know if Biden will run for president.

He ranks 9th. And his recent scores werenít helped by him voting against Russian sanctions multiple times.

Kamala Harris ranks the most progressive Senator.

As far as why Bernie isnít a Democrat, you would have to ask him. He filed paperwork to run in 2024 as an Independent. Bernie is a Democrat when it benefits Bernie.

DU is wonderful. Iíve been a member for years. Itís a real community made of all sorts of people who converse about all sorts of topics.

If I could give you a bit of constructive criticism, get to know us before you declare that, ďcommonly held opinions here seem to be out of touch with the electorate at large and the progressive baseĒ.

Members run the gamut of views. It gets lively around primary time, but the mods are doing a fantastic job with keeping things civil. The more you participate, you will see how diverse we are.

Oh, and this is a Democratic forum. The great thing about our party is how diverse we are. At our best, we all come together. We learned from 2016.

Is that no one is declaring that any other of the candidates who are in the lower than 5% to give up already. Like Inslee, who is my heavy favorite, or Booker who is barely making a mark.

No, just Bernie, who I supported last time but feel he and two others are too old to elect. Gosh the handful of Yang supporters here have me want him to field better because they are just as enthusiastic about their candidate as those who support the old guy. Which ever old guy you like..

NO difference in interpreting crowd reaction by any of them.


So I guess my answer is, supporters are routing for their candidate.

to the nationwide audience. There hasn't been a single debate yet or a single primary.

Not true with Bernie. He is at the top of name recognition, but he lost to Hillary last time by 4 million votes. It seems extremely unlikely that enough of those 4 million will switch to Bernie to help him win this time. Why would any Hillary primary voter -- who he has never made any outreach to -- choose him instead of one of the others?
