Before tonight: Bernie down 3 million votes. After tonight: Bernie down 3 million votes

Go Bernie!

If Sanders wins Indiana, here's what he needs the rest of the way...

According to 538


The majority of young voters will vote for Clinton in the GE

Given the choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the forthcoming presidential election, millennials are clear about who they prefer. Some 61% of young Americans say they will vote for the Democratic frontrunner and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for president in November, while only 25% will vote for Republican frontrunner (and political outsider) Donald Trump, according to a survey released this week of over 3,100 18- to 29-year-olds by the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University; another 14% of likely young voters say they’re unsure how they will vote, the survey concluded.


Perhaps more vexing for candidates at both ends of the political spectrum, millennials reject both socialism (even though they overwhelmingly have more favorable view of Bernie Sanders than any of the current crop of candidates) and, to a lesser extent, capitalism. Socialism is supported by just 33% of young Americans, while capitalism is supported by 42%, the survey found. Among those most likely to vote in the presidential election in November, only 41% support socialism; a majority (52%) say they support capitalism. Capitalism is more likely to be supported by people who have graduated from college (56%), Caucasians (43%), males (49%), people who live in the South (46%) and the West (45%), and members of the Republican Party (54%).


The majority of Democrats have voted for Hillary Clinton

Is it safe to openly support her on DU yet?

What has Bernie Sanders done in his long career to suggest he could start a revolution?

As far as I'm aware, Bernie Sanders is not responsible for pushing through any revolutionary change while in the senate/congress/mayor. Nor has he shown an ability to get major groups to rally behind him. He also isn't energizing any revolutionary amount of political activism or voter turnout from his supporters.

What convinces Bernie supporters that he has what it takes to deliver on even half of his campaign promises given the fact that he's running for president and not King, and won't be able to achieve many of his promises without huge support in the senate, house and state governments? What convinces you that he can be an agent of such revolutionary change?
