If Bernie could make it through the primary (massive if) then I’d put money on him in the general.

All other issues aside, I'll heartily endorse anything that gets us closer to one day having a nonagenarian president. The older the better, I say.

A very early test for Bernie is if he and his surrogates speak out, loudly and repeatedly, against supporters doling out online abuse in his name. If he/they do, he’s serious about being more than a purist spoiler. If not...

I do like the idea that Warren has been talking about jailing bankers and breaking up tech giants just to attract big donors and moderate suburban votes so she can win power and pursue her hidden agenda of governing like Bill Clinton.

This is entirely in your head. To rehash something that has been done a million times on ILX, there's always a percentage of Democratic primary voters who vote GOP in the general and in 2016, Berniebros were more party-loyal than Hillary voters in 2008. Warren or Harris aren't going to do worse on that front than Clinton.

Greta Van Show Feets BB (milo z), Sunday, 1 September 2019 17:56 (two weeks ago) link

As frustrating as it must be to most ilxors, the democratic nominee will be chosen by people, both ordinary voters and political insiders, the majority of whom do not closely resemble ilxors. This cold fact will be doubly true when it comes to the people who will choose the next president in November 2020.

I don't like this any better than you do, but I've had a longer time to get used to it.

Frederik B, Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:22 (two weeks ago) link

there is a distinct possibility that no candidate will go into the DNC with a majority of the delegates and either warren or sanders will need the others' delegates to get over the 50% threshold in the subsequent voting rounds so i think it would be real real cool if both sides would be nice to each other

wario in the streets, waluigi in the sheets (m bison), Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:26 (two weeks ago) link

Sanders is in second place in about half of the recent polls (i.e. ahead of Warren), so wringing your hands about how Bernie might "stay in too long" and "hurt Warren" at this point is kind of absurd. And the first place candidate is a guy whose brain appears to be melting a little more each time he's on stage, so I wouldn't count on him staying out front.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:29 (two weeks ago) link

xp agreed

i'm just still fucked up over 2016 & also frustrated with all my friends who are literally bernie or bust, it's sometimes hard to remind myself that most bernie supporters aren't like that

Vape Store (crüt), Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:30 (two weeks ago) link

Even a lot of your friends who are "literally bernie or bust" are probably not literally bernie or bust. But yeah, that's objectively not that large a percentage of his supporters, nor was it last time.

sorry crüt didn’t mean to come across as a jerk. the Bernie die-hards can be trying but tbh I think a lot of it’s just Twitter hardmanning by ppl who are likely not even in swing states

A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Chooglin (will), Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:49 (two weeks ago) link

Bernie + warren combined is still below Biden in most polls ghttps://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2020-primaries/democratic/national/) and that’s under the optimistic assumption that if either dropped out all voters would switch to the other (and it’s not just bernie busters who’d defect; a lot of Bernie first picks are Biden second picks, presumably many Warren second picks are for the other candidates)

flopson, Sunday, 1 September 2019 20:54 (two weeks ago) link

flopson, that is not true. take harrisx out and most show bernie+warren totals > biden (https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/sc/south_carolina_democratic_presidential_primary-6824.html)

im not saying to not pay attention to the harrisx poll, but its an aberration of sorts.

wario in the streets, waluigi in the sheets (m bison), Sunday, 1 September 2019 21:06 (two weeks ago) link

it hasn't really hurt his polling so far :/

he's declining slightly but measurably, and a majority of folks responding to cold phone calls are still the sort of people who don't actually follow news and just recognise the word "Biden." though in current likelihood I'd rank the following

1: someone he respects convinces him to drop out and endorse Warren*
2: his brain melts so much at an appearance that he has to be put into care
3: the name-recognition lumpendemocrat abandon him

watched the Bernie / Killer Mike video this morning, that's some good praxis tbh

quelle sprocket damage (sic), Sunday, 1 September 2019 21:13 (two weeks ago) link

* though the main indicator of his senility is the ludicrous stubbornness shown by his insistence on running again when he has lost comprehensively every time before, and things like the "this story is God's exact truth, my word as a Biden" -> turns out every single detail of the story is incorrect, including his involvement -> "wtf, I know SOMETHING happened once and I was there, how dare anyone criticise me for misremembering 17 specifics that I insisted were accurate" from three days ago
