19. I wouldn't say DU is full of people who voted for Bernie in 2016 anymore. It was once, but not now.


I'm not declaring my vote yet because I'm open to all, but I could definitely vote for Bernie depending on how the other candidates conduct themselves. His national numbers are pretty good for now (mostly based on people knowing him and his record and not so much the newcomers). The newcomers could easily gain on him.

Really, there is no path to victory except for one candidate, but even if it is true that Bernie is uniquely burdened with not getting the nomination, there is always his ability to draw attention to issues.

Plus, when Bernie says any Democrat is better than any Republican as he did in 2016 it brings the disaffected to the voting both. Not all of them, but percentage wise we saw that Bernie supporters came out a little bit better for HRC compared the previous post-primary election. Bernie is uniquely positioned to convince independents who might not vote to vote for the Democratic candidate.
