    Biden and Bern will be the two frontrunners in the Democratic Primary.

    Both are capable of beating the Big Orange Goon.

    Anyone who believes Biden, Bernie, Hillary, or Warren are viable candidates didn't learn their lesson in 2016.

    Neither Biden nor Bernie directly ran against Trump in 2016.

    No one is taking Elizabeth Warren seriously.

    Neither of them have the energy to keep up with a speed-fueled Trump during an insult filled debate either.

    That's ignoring that Biden is very much an "establishment candidate" and that Bernie's platform will appeal to exactly 0 people in the swing states.

    Hillary was the worst nominee ever and she still almost beat Trump.

    Bernie is a legit contender and everyone knows it. Republicans are literally shitting themselves.

    You're aware that every election hinges on like 4 states, right?

    Didn't Mitt Romney have over 200 electoral votes against Barry?

    The idea that we have control over global climate is also laughable. Jokes is all we got.

    Uncle Joe yes.
    Bern, no.
    People want him to go away. Check the blogs and interest pieces. Bernie soured lots of folks after 2016 and they just want a Dem win that they see him risking splitting.

    Also LOL...

    Yeah he still lost the popular vote by 5 million votes though.

    Hillary won the popular vote by about 3 million, which means a lot of the states were very close and only need a slight tilt in the direction of a stronger Democrat candidate, which they'll have.

    Trump is gonna be the first one-term President in 30 years and 90% of this forum will be crying their uniformed eyes out.

    When you start taking my word of trends of what others are thinking, I'll just give you my analysis. Until then, there's grassroots democrats giving the consistent opinion that Bern is risky and not welcome as a front runner.

    And yet he's polling ahead of everyone else who's declared so far, by a wide margin.

    And yet he's breaking fundraising records.

    How bow dah?

    Kamala Harris is polling closer to Bernie than Bernie to Joe Biden. Lets not act like "polling ahead' means too much for the end of this race.
    Joe is the only lock on walking in and having the lead be their's to lose.

    You know who else always polled high early and raised record donations with their movement?

    Biden would probably beat Trump if we don't get the hot hot hot market back

    My previous thought was that it would take an economic collapse to beat Trump, but the retard just keeps making so many fuck ups that it won't even require such a severe situation.

    Trump has the ardent support of around 35-40% of voters, but a strong candidate will be enough to win over those in the middle.

    He rode the Obama economic wave as long as he could and now he's crashed. The market isn't coming back because Trump has done nothing in two years to help the economy.

    He has a money, name recognition, and groundgame advantage over everyone. All these never bernies are a loud minority that will split between their favourties anyway. It's like the new media interviewing all the never trump republicans and trying to say they are representative of the party.
