Sanders Wins

  • 4 Comments
  • by: MADCO

get used to the idea.

Sure, he has numerous candidate flaws. Who doesn’t?

But if the Democrats think they can both save the party from a Sanders win and GOTV for voters who support him – the math doesn’t work.

It comes down to let voters vote  or blow up the party.

  1. I’m not a fan, but I’m not opposed to Sanders, either.  My only expectations are

     * Biden will not do as well as the polls predicted

     * Sanders will not overachieve nearly as much as he did in 2016 and

     * there will be a sizeable bump in overall participation from 2016, when about 18.5% of active registered Democrats showed up to caucus.

    With about 1% of the DNC delegates being chosen by the process starting tonight in Iowa, the outcomes won’t matter a great deal — unless Biden under-performs 5% or more below his 21% polling average.

  2. Thanks, MADCO. Someone had to point out the obvious inconsistencies in the Democratic position. 
     

    Sanders attracts people who want systemic change instead of just switching the cushions on the deck chairs on the Titanic. Bernie’s been consistent in his positions over 50 years in politics.  Some may not like his positions, and some may have uncritically bought the hype that his policies spell expensive DOOM for the American economy. 

    (as was said about FDR, Eisenhower, LBJ, Clinton, and Obama’s expensive programs and tax rates.)

    He has had four years to build an independent progressive campaign infrastructure (Our Revolution) which has helped to elect hundreds of local grassroots candidates. And the Sanders ground game is second to none. I want Warren to show strong in Iowa; if she doesn’t, it may be time for a Sanders//Warren alliance.

    1. " people who want systemic change "

      This is what Warren has been saying for years – voters want the big change.
      As usual, she is right.

      My concern about Warren is Pennsylvania and Arizona.
      I thimk if WI is in play, she may motivate the wrong base voters .
      AZ – Sinema was a great candidate, running against a bad candidate
