yes this is 100% a case of "bernie never does anything wrong" and totally not a case of "i'd like to see the evidence you used to reach such a firm conclusion".

sorry for briefly forgetting to play the ridiculous character you've cast me as.

Isn't it entirely possible that he said that a woman couldn't win AND that he's not sexist?

I mean, we've had multiple women on this thread, myself included, basically say the same thing?

Maine called for Biden. A state that Sanders won by 28 points in 2016.

Nope. Not possible. Bernie is an angel sent from heaven.

Bullock is running for Senate in Montana.

Thank the good lord.

Working with the big Biden night as the new neutral, in reverse...

American Samoa: true enough
Vermont: true enough
Maine: true enough (delta balances with American Samoa)
Utah: 5-10 tip to Sanders
Arkansas: true enough
Alabama: 15-20 tip to Biden
Tennessee: 0-5 tip to Biden
Oklahoma: true enough
Colorado: 10-15 tip to Sanders
Minnesota: 5-10 tip to Biden
Massachusetts: 5-10 tip to Biden
Virginia: true enough
North Carolina: true enough
Texas: true enough
California: ???? 30-100 to Sanders, who knows

So without California deltas we are looking at...
615-445

Minimum of 625-435
Maximum of 650-410

And after california that’s:

Worst case for Biden: 475-535
Worst case for Sanders: 620-440

Some no mathematical phone math of likelihood: 530-490

To reiterate just how energized the Democratic base is still fired up (continuing from 2018) My state, TN, had record turnout, even though an F3 tornado blasted through 200 miles of the most populated area of the state the night before super tuesday. That's how much people want Trump out.

ps. this is not saying Biden wins TN in the general, just an overall note of the energy that is still there, especially now that there is a central figure they can get behind.

Dave Chappelle joked about how it's up to black people to save this country, but should they????

Texas has to be a spotlight right now with their voter suppression tactics. Aside from the epidemic forcing us to stay home, the GOP only wins 2020 with closing polls + purging voters.

This is why I think Stacy Abrams is a huge get for either candidate. This has been her cause since she had the Gov stolen from her in GA.

Get her on the ticket and I think people (of all races) may stand in line for days to get her into the WH

I think this also warrants a note of caution that Biden cannot and should not run solely to pander to the “economic anxiety” (spoiler alert: white) men in the rust belt. We are collectively sick of hearing that this group is literally the only one that matters.

Honestly, she’s also not ready. I think she’s wonderful. But she needs to win something statewide first. She’s going to be one 77-year old man’s heartbeat away from the presidency.

I felt the same way about Pete. They’re both the future, but give them a second to grow.

There is a brand new interview that was published this week where she explicitly says that she would consider it.

Kamala makes good sense to me if it’s Biden.

You may not be aware of Senator Warren's past 'exploits.'

Third in Massachusetts' primary didn't help the senator's path, either.
