Default Bernie Sanders will be the Democratic nominee – here are five reasons why

Quote:
5. Running for president is different now
4. A crowded field
3. Sanders has run nationwide before
2. Sanders has his message down and he doesn’t waiver

1. Sanders and his supporters are anti-establishment and have a chip on their shoulder





Joe Biden, you say? Joe Biden has always been a better prospective candidate than an actual candidate. He will gaffe himself to the finish lines. Sanders and his followers are on a mission.
Yes, the Democratic establishment will side with almost anyone over Sanders. In the end, however, that could well be to Sanders’ benefit in this Anti-establishment, divided era.

Too early to tell but I think Biden has the early advantage.

I'm gonna repost this, from an earlier thread, as I haven't seen anyone (here or the media) address this...

This conflict with the Democrat Party's actual position...

From June, 2018...

DNC panel adopts rule requiring candidates to run, serve as a Democrat


Quote:
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a new rule on Friday aimed at keeping outsider candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from trying to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

The new rule, adopted by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, requires all Democratic presidential candidates to be a member of the Democratic Party, Yahoo News reported.

A presidential candidate running for the Democratic nomination must be a member of the party, accept the Democratic nomination and “run and serve” as a member.

Sanders, who has maintained his status as an independent, fought a tough primary race for the Democratic nomination against eventual presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.
According to the DNC's own rules, Sanders CAN'T "enter the crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field"...

I haven't located any information on that yet. Looks like the DNC would have said something by now.

Far too early to tell imo, but he's got a shot.
"5. Running for president is different now
4. A crowded field
3. Sanders has run nationwide before
2. Sanders has his message down and he doesn’t waiver
1. Sanders and his supporters are anti-establishment and have a chip on their shoulder"
All the same could be said of Ron Paul the second time he ran and he didn't have the taint of Establishment compromise with the RNC.
Or recent shaky/betraying commentary on war and other issues his supporters were concerned about.

But in general, i still think Trump wins against all Dems in play at this point.

Biden is the only one, as of now, I can see beating Trump.

Biden's a bit of a political joke in bed with the establishment Dems and paying lip service to the Bernie camp/ sincere progressives concerns.
Plus he's Creep.
But hey being someone known to grope and smooch-up unwilling women and young girls hasn't stopped voters from supporting candidates before.
so hey maybe you're right.

But i still don't see it.
Trump's biggest asset is the inertia working for him.

Yup. Trump did/does well because he's not PC and tells it like it is. I think voters are refreshed by that sorta attitude.

If Biden chooses not to run for president, Bernie is the frontrunner. At this moment, there is no one else with his name recognition, fundraising power, and momentum, and I think a lot of the Biden voters are likely to support Bernie in the primary if doesn't run.

If Biden runs, it'll be a fight. A fight I hope won't be so rough and Democrats will be able to unite around whomever wins at the convention.
