Also, if tomorrow is a real blowout. Bernie is gonna go off the rails at the next debate.
If tomorrow is a real blowout, why are we having a debate next week?

Because if either of these two old men who gather massive crowds get coronavirus, you better start liking what the other one was saying.

Or technically if they both get it, you can just accept the last standing candidate, Tulsi Gabbard.

Now I know how naive and stupid that was.
Yea, I think a lot of people thought that. I think a lot of people who voted for him thought that. Not the loon squad true believers who think Hillary Clinton was hiding a massive pedophilia ring and that JFK Jr. is totally still alive and will save us all - but it took more than the Ping Pong Pizza Brigade to actually put him in office.

I feel like I've been fairly consistent with how much of a disaster this guy would be - but I definitely underestimated the indifference of the GOP - specifically the Senate. I figured Pence was put in place to stabilize things when Trump inevitably went off the rails. But when the inevitable happened, they all just played along.

At some point our nation will have to reckon with the entire idea that a large portion of our population voted for a TV character.

You've just solved the riddle of Tulsi's strategy for remaining in the race.

Assume Tulsi already smuggled the virus out of Russia in a vile and has already sprinkled it on the debate podiums.

During my time as an active military member, I was the only candidate who wasn’t susceptible to the coronavirus! Down with the democratic establishment, Fox News!

I was wondering that. I kinda think it will be different this time. If it's REALLY bad for him by the 17 (after FL) I think it's possible that he drops. The last time he was closer, and had states that he could claim small victories in. And he knew he could run again next time, so he wanted to get to the convention to get the DNC to make changes for the the next run. This time not so much. If he stays in this time IF he's way behind. God. It will just be ridiculous and sad.

He won’t. I really believe that. And his heart will give him an excuse as well.

I think he will. He hasn't changed a single way he's approached anything. Why would this be his line in the sand?

The only caveat here is that he reversed his position and said that the person with the most delegates when they get to the convention should win. He obviously thought that would be him a few weeks ago.

I would bet he will honor this, but he definitely caveated his statement to include superdelegates didn’t he? Not that he would win those. But that does indicate he would want to play it all the way to the convention.

Given their current campaign routines (and that could change), what are the odds one of the three old men catches COVID-19?

Trump is surely pushing it, but I suspect he has secret service secretly bleach his hands afterwards and always has (offense). Joe Biden is probably smart enough to follow protocol (defense). Bernie Sanders probably is too grumpy to shake his supporters hands in the first place (intimidation).

New PA poll

Biden - 59
Sanders - 38

And it looks like 538 answered my idaho and North Dakota question.

Right now, they have Idaho at Biden - 47, Sanders - 43
and North Dakota at Biden - 48, Sanders - 41

Washington remains within the margin of error with Biden at +3

So there is an outside chance that Bernie doesn't win any states tomorrow. Splitting delegates in WA, ID, and ND, and Biden getting most of MI and MO, and almost all of the delegates in MS.
