Sanders is planning to visit South Carolina soon, but many Democrats, including some officials, are not happy about it. There may be some Bernbro college students hanging around from 2016; but that's about it. In the 2016 primary season in SC, black women basically ignored him. Kamala Harris is also visiting soon. She will attract more attention. SC primary is an early one, right after the Iowa caucus and the NH primary.
|by Anonymous||reply 22||10/11/2018|
R22: Black voters didn't know who he was in South Carolina. Reporters literally got the response "Bernie who?" Martin O'who?" when asking black voters in that primary about the other candidates. Early outreach was terrible from all of her opponents while she had the name recognition. The idea that black voters didn't like him from the get go is incorrect, and if you were a black Democratic primary voter under 30, you voted for Sanders over Clinton in numerous contests thereafter. The age gap was the biggest predictor of support for either candidate in 2016.
R21: If more people voted for Hillary instead of Johnson, she could have been President. If more black voters bothered to vote in PA, she would have won that state. If more Obama votes had stayed with Rodham Clinton then going to Trump, she would have won. If my aunt had balls, if chickens could pee. Coulda. Woulda. Shoulda. It's over now. 2020 is where the focus needs to be.

I am not black, but my job involves working with black women primarily in the south. They wanted absolutely nothing to do with Sanders back in 2015-16. To put it bluntly, the thing I heard the most was he looks like the evil overseer who beat and drove the laves to death with work back on the plantation.

If the DNC had any brains it would back Bernie with everything it has if he does run for president. Bernie is far more popular than almost any Democratic politician and he doesn't have the baggage many Democrats do.
Unfortunately, the DNC will never go for anything other than a bland corporate candidate no matter how likely they are to sink like a stone. Bernie could attract Republicans and Independents away from Trump. Name one Democrat who could do that.

R52: I like the British way for college. Here's how it works. You go to Sixth Form College (Junior and Senior year in high school), study a subject, then take exams. The exams help place you in certain universities. You then pick one of those, go there, pick your major and study it for 3 years (4 years for us Americans). The costs are totally covered in Scotland still, in England now you have to pay top-up fees though they aren't as high as US tuition. If you change your major, though, you forfeit the free 3 year ride. And you only get one ride as well. Plus, you had to have tested into said university. I'm all for that system. Perhaps a British DLer can confirm if I've got that right.

Sorry, R58, I actually paid attention and your'e full of shit. Bernie was mathematically eliminated by March 15th, 2016. He had no road to the nomination, yet he proceeded to get nastier and nastier towards Hillary and deceived his followers about his chances of winning. After the primaries his behavior was that of a petulant sore loser. When Hillary was rightfully and justly nominated, he behaved poorly still. He did NOT support her. He went away and wrote a book instead of campaigning for her. He did the MINIMUM to support her through the General. He never called out his army of abusive Bernie-bros, NEVER did much to unify his base with Democrats, raised ZERO money for down-ticket democrats... he did the least of any primary loser in modern history.
And yes, he's personally divisive. His purity politics alienates natural allies, and he is unwilling to compromise to make any progress. He spends more time attacking Democrats than Republicans.
Fuck you for pushing the lies trying to erase the deep flaws and divisiveness of this asshole. He needs to go away. He's been a disaster for Progressive politics, dividing the left, and enabling GOP wins across the board. He's a FRAUD. Wake the fuck up.

And fucking christ, he endorsed unreservedly. Now you are complaining he didn't do enough campaigning for her. He gave her his full support, he purposely chastised the bernie or bust people, even helped quiet down some bernie protestors at the DNC.

For those rehashing the general election of 2016, with the fact that Hillary Clinton won the U.S. Popular Vote and Donald Trump won the Electoral College, and then wanting to say she should have been projected the presidential winner, what 2016 was what a split outcome: He won the Electoral College, in a Republican pickup, and she won the U.S. Popular Vote, in a Democratic hold, and it is this simple to understand:
2012 U.S. PRESIDENT—Mitt Romney 47.15% | Barack Obama 51.01% (Margin: Democratic/Obama +3.86); Electoral Votes: Obama, 332 (from 26 states, plus District of Columbia).
2016 U.S. PRESIDENT—Donald Trump 45.93% | Hillary Clinton 48.02% (Margin: Democratic/Clinton +2.09); Electoral College: Trump won the 24 states carried in 2012 by Mitt Romney, for 206 electoral votes, and Trump won 2012 Democratic-to-2016 Republican pickups of +100 net gains in electoral votes for 30 states, plus Maine #02, and 306 initial electoral votes.
How can Trump win the Electoral College but not the U.S. Popular Vote: He needed to erase Mitt Romney’s popular-vote margin loss of –3.86. Trump shifted only +1.77 of that amount. But, state after state, he shifted the popular votes of Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and the 2nd Congressional District of Maine enough to flip them.
Here is the map showing states in red where Trump had sufficient shifts that gave him opportunity to win over the U.S. Popular Vote. Those colored in blue are where he did not shift sufficiently. Remember—he needed a national shift of +3.87 to win over the U.S. Popular Vote by at least +0.01. So, those colored in red were sufficient shifts. Those colored in blue were insufficient—helping to explain why Hillary Clinton held in the Democratic column the U.S. Popular Vote. In one of Trump’s Republican pickup states, Florida, he shifted it by +2.07. In 2012, re-elected Democratic incumbent U.S. president Barack Obama carried it by +0.88. Donald Trump’s 2016 Republican pickup of the state of Florida was a margin of +1.19. Enough for winning over the state. But not enough for what was necessary in his effort to also win over the U.S. Popular Vote.

All Sanders needs to do is join the Democratic Party and he can run as a Democrat, R76.

1. Because no one but you gives a fuck about the popular vote. It's a footnote
2. Because that's how elections in the United States have been decided since our country was founded--who wins the electoral vote.
This was not the first time that someone won the popular vote and lost the electoral vote.
In fact it is the fifth time it's happened.
3. Up until the evening of Election Day, the electoral college was expected to break for Hillary, as the Democrats have a natural advantage there in that there are more "deep blue" votes than "deep red."
In fact, the conventional wisdom was that as soon as she won Florida, the race would be over, as that, plus all the other expected blue states, would put her over the top, as Florida would have put Al Gore over the top in 2000.

Please Hillary worshippers, take a clue from the old Veep and accept the loss. The election was and never has been about popular votes and you know it. The POTUS election is not a true democratic process. The founding fathers did not want to see the candidates campaigning and only appealing to the residents of heavily populated states.

Sanders is a difficult personality in almost every conceivable way, and he was detrimental to the Clinton campaign. He is horrible even in small ways.
As an example, the black colleagues who intuited his racist attitude as recalled by the poster upthread were right. I know that Sanders personally objected to being introduced by black and Asian speakers on a handful of occasions. He may have had minorities working on his staff and as surrogates, but he demurred when it came time to stand behind them.

It is entirely possible to have zero problem with Sanders policies and have major problems with Sanders himself. I don't like him, I don't want to vote for him.

R196 Bernie also had a huge millennial support. Democrats need to stop being stupid and embrace universal healthcare. Embrace the 15 dollar minimum wage. Talk more about climate change (the biggest threat we face) these are things millenials care about.

Millennials don’t vote.

R200. Exactly! So these people enjoy the healthcare companies screwing everyone? They need to get lost. (the healthcare companies) Nobody should be making a profit off someone's health. It's disgusting. Does anyone care about climate change? Bernie is absolutely right on it.

We need somebody new. Retread candidates are always a bad idea, because they start out as losers. That includes Biden, as well. They're never able to recapture the excitement they had the first time around. Hillary was a bore compared to the first time she ran in 2008. Likewise, Bernie can never generate the same enthusiasm he got in 2016.

No, just Sanders.

Whatever the fuck he's doing, he's not doing it as a Democratic candidate.
He can fuck right off with that game.

Anyone that was a Bernie supporter and voted for trump in the general is a pos. It tells me that they didn't give a shit about what Bernie said or what he believed in. I voted for Hillary in the general because I knew what a monster trump was/is. I can't blame Bernie for this. He asked his supporters to vote for Hillary. I also wonder if Hillary had picked Sanders as a vp would it have made a difference?

Probably not, because the BernorBusters didn't accept any other narrative than Bernie won the primary.
