FWIW, 538 has him as a 45.9% chance of winning the majority of delegates. IIRC the next highest odds were that no one would get a majority.
So they would agree that he is the clear favorite but also far from a sure thing.
I think it's pretty unlikely anyone stops Bernie but we shall see.
The one thing I can say about him is that at least I know what I'm getting with him. He's a good guy who wants to make the world better for everyone. If people can't vote for him over Trump then I think that says a lot about...
Maybe. But I'd still be interested in someone that tried it. That couldn't be their whole thing they would need more but still, I would love for a good candidate to try.
It almost feels like a self fulling prophecy to say that the only way to win is to play the game.
Maybe. I'd be incredibly interested in a candidate who did NOT play the game to win. In fact that's what originally attracted me to Pete until he started become more and more like the rest of the politicians.
IDK about wild but yes it's speculation. But he has the most consistent support across multiple demographics. And he raises money better than anyone. He's won or close to won the 1st states and is probably going to win Nevada possibly by a sizable margin. Yes, the South still has to vote but...
Maybe. But that means they'll have a heck of a lot of people disenfranchised with the entire system. Probably not something you want in a must win election.
Also, I'm not sure there is going to be a moderate with the pull to do that. Bloomberg may be the only one with a shot at this point.
