I’m not so sold they’re all going to Biden. I can see some Pete in every which direction, and some Amy going to Liz too.
One of the major flaws in primary early voting. How many wasted votes in candidates no longer in the running are sitting out there?

As the center solidified around Biden, I’ve seen several progressives— like Julian Castro — saying how it’s not too late to vote for a progressive ... a progressive like Warren.

Obviously just another plot by the DNC to take down Bernie by having Warren stay in the race to split the left vote.

Everyone’s out to stop the revolution.

Hmm. I sorta read Irving's second sentence as being sarcastic, or snarky.

Looks like the establishment is aligning.

May the best team win. I truly hope that if Bernie doesn't win in the end he can quickly rally behind Biden (or is there any chance Warren makes a comeback?). I hope if Bernie wins, the DNC puts everything they have into supporting him.

I don't know about decades.
If either Uncle Joe or Crazy Bernie pick a female VP and end up beating Orange Donnie then we're probably a year and a half or so from our first female President.

He’s been railing against the left a lot recently, caricaturizing the some 40-45% of democrat voters as this tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy-screaming band of loonies because “someone on the internet once said it.”

Irvine, your consistency with this is, in its own right, characterizable. Why not just talk about the substance of what nearly half of the electorate wants? It’s dismissive.

Yes we could possibly have a woman President that way. But I was thinking more about a Presidential candidate, duly elected.

Fixed that, so it’s all now self-explanatory.

There are segments of “the left” that do an admirable job caricaturist for themsleves there past few weeks, they need no help from me.

I don’t think he’s ever spoken that way of non-Bernie bros/voters who happen to be progressive. For example, Warren supporters.

Of course today I’m hearing she’s the establishment too so who knows.

Buttigieg
Klobuchar
Beto
Harry Reid

All in for Biden.

Going to be a lot of pressure on Bloomberg to make a move tonight.

Yeah, your top sentence sounds about right.

Oh, so Warren 's establishment, now? Hmmm, half an eyeroll on that.

20-25%? Delusions, because he is consistently polling just shy of 30% right now, with some 15% hanging around with Elizabeth Warren. If you don’t think that the majority of hers would go to him, plus some confusing Bloombergers, minus some Warren back to the middle, I don’t know what to tell you.

Also ignores the fact that he literally pulled 40-45% of the voters in 2016.
