4. Its not over until Bernie concedes and or until Biden secures a lead

 

that means Bernie has no chance to truly win by.
And no that is not be being a pro Bernie person rather I am simply stating the facts.
Do I think it likely that Bernie can win it though? Not really and the reason why is actually due to a number of self inflicted wounds by Bernie.
First when he decided go back to being a registered Independent after failing to win the Democratic nomination in 2016 as that was a huge mistake if he was planning to run again in 2020 as he really needed to focus on building a rock solid foundation of support within the party if he wanted to have a better chance at winning the nomination.
The 2nd big one was that whole thing about the Democratic establishment as that probably turned a number of people that might have otherwise been considering him off.

8. It would take an act of god

 

Bidens lead is, for all practical intents unbeatable. In fact.. there has been an "act of god", (in insurance terms, not religeous), and even that hasn't moved the polls.

And that is me being a pro bernie guy. I was with him all the way to the convention before. And I think he was probably our best option of all the people who participated in any of our debates. And I see no reason he needs to be out before the convention now. But real talk.. Biden has won.

5. When all the polls point to one candidate, that's very solid ground!

6. How HUMILIATING for Bernie! He's not going to win, is he?

 

He needs to drop out now. If he ever fancied himself as actually being some sort of leader, now is his opportunity to prove it by withdrawing; endorsing Joe Biden; starting the healing process and using these weeks to console and motivate his followers.

The window of opportunity is closing. Time is drawing short. If he waits until the convention to concede... and if he "disappears" after the convention for 6 weeks to write a book (or something) then his followers will wander around aimlessly... licking their wounds... still feeling said and mournful... resenting what happened... feeling "cheated" and believing falsely that the process was "rigged"... and their hatred and distrust of the party and desire for "revenge" will grow. (It's all just a little bit of history repeating.)

But... if Bernie acts now, then much of this can be nipped in the bud.

7. That Sanders is as high as 32% after all this time

 

is dismaying, though. More people should be taking a good look at him, not just believing what his campaign and their big backers say about him and smear Biden with.

This is a huge reason why our founders committed to public education from the beginning. Democracy must informed electorates to function properly.
