Another reason I think Bernie will have a tough row to hoe if he runs [View all]

Bernie Sanders faces lots of obstacles if he runs in the 2020 primaries. But I think the most serious is that he doesn't appear to have built up any additional support since his last race, a race he lost.

Although this poll I took last night is non-scientific, it does reflect what I think to be the case: while many people who supported Bernie in 2016 won't support him this time around, few, if any, voters who DIDN'T support him in 2016 will vote for him this time. In other words, his support has drained.

So, if Bernie couldn't get enough votes in 2016 to secure the nomination (he didn't even come close), many of those voters have walked away from him, and new voters haven't made up the slack, why would he think he can win the nomination?

If there's no path to victory, what's his end game?
