Fresh Off New Hampshire Win, Bernie Coming To Denver

FOX 31’s Eric Ruble reports, Colorado will “Feel The Bern” this weekend as Sen. Bernie Sanders rallies in downtown Denver after taking New Hampshire and kinda-sorta-probably winning the disastrously executed Iowa caucus:

Presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders will hold a rally in downtown Denver on Sunday.

According to the official campaign website, the rally will be held at the Bellco Theater inside the Colorado Convention Center.

Doors open at 4 p.m. Sunday and the event begins at 6 p.m.

Denver’s Bellco Theater seats up to 5,000, and we doubt Sanders will have any trouble filling the venue to capacity. The historical record of the winners of both Iowa and New Hampshire ending up the nominee for their respective party bodes well for Sanders today, with the principal caveat being that the Iowa caucuses became more of a story of technological fiasco than a triumph for anybody with a (D) after their name.

Ballots are arriving right now in mailboxes across Colorado, and resilient support among Colorado base Democrats means a Bernie repeat win here remains the oddsmaker’s choice–unless the unaffiliated vote taking part in a Democratic presidential contest for the first time in Colorado militates strongly in another direction. Anyone hoping to meaningfully alter this trajectory should consider themselves on notice: this state is in all likelihood Sanders’ to lose, but our newly open primary leaves a wild card no one can ignore in play.

    I'm actually pretty impressed with Mayor Pete's close second place.  Between Pete and Amy, the moderates garnered over 44% (52% if you add Joe Biden), while Bernie and Elizabeth only pulled in slightly under 35%.

    It'll be interesting to see Nevada and South Carolina weigh in.  I think one way or the other we have the makings of the nominee and the VP slot with a pick any two from the above.

    Let's see where things are after super Tuesday.  Helluva lot more delegates in play then in the IA/NH podunk shows

    I voted for Warren. All the women I know are doing the same. I think she’ll still be a contender after Tuesday.
    I may still go to the Bernie rally, to get some petition signatures for Lorena Garcia’s Senate run. But Bernie will probably win Colorado. 

    So suck  it up in the name of the party unity you claim to value, Democrats!

    Vote blue.. or 4More!

    Bernie actually has a 7% lead in Nevada…..

    That's good news and bad news for the old Trotskyite.

    Nevada is consistent with other states (Iowa, NH). He has a solid floor of 25%. He had a hard ceiling of 28%.

    If Warren would just step aside and endorse him, his ceiling rises to 33% to 35%. And as long as Klobuchar, Buttigeig and Biden keep splitting the moderate vote, Bernie would win plurality wins.
