Even if Clinton loses Iowa it will be narrowly and can be explained away by "young white liberals"
Seems that Iowa will NOT be her Waterloo.
New Hampshire - can be easily explained
After that it's South Carolina, Nevada, and then Super Tuesday. Is Sanders leading in any one of these states (other than Vermont)?
so much so, that we would be FOOLS not to nominate her for the general, right?
Cuz she's such a strong candidate.
So what happened with that?
Outside odds on O'Malley.
Selzer's results suggests a close race.
from picking up momentum. The Dem establishment may be able to Mondale her through, but there's no guarantee.
He won one state-his home state of MN
not a bad idea, he never had a chance against Reagan, proposed tax increase or no proposed tax increase. Sanders' tax increase, OTOH, is targeted in a way that could very possibly win him votes rather than lose them. Sanders knows it's worth paying for good government. His task is to make the case to the American people. The benefits the American people will receive from single payer give him a good chance of succeeding.
Not in the GE-with video saying he will raise taxes. Your key word is "could". It "would" be put into heavy rotation by the Republicans. They don't care what the truth is. He gave them a huge gift. If he wins the nomination that will come back to haunt him. I voted for Mondale- I went along with it. It was a huge mistake. I'm a lifelong Democrat. I don't want a Republican in the White House. Hopefully Bernie will have a better way to pitch himself if he wins the nomination.
Bernie 42%, within margin of error, and Martin sadly 3%.
So it's all about turn out, as both sides have been saying this week.
I can't imagine Sunday morning talk shows on the teevee are going to be very good for Hillary. Lotsa talk about sliding polls and classified emails.
Boy-I hope you got a warranty
on the motor moving the goal posts...
Not a single state
Maybe close in New Hampshire
OK-but NH is it
OK NH and Close in Iowa
Maybe just those two
But it's not a real win unless he takes both by 10%
Any thing less than a 40 point win in both and he's done
How long before it has to be unanimous and must include all three Clintons voting???
On Super Tuesday, it will be abundantly clear how this is going to end up. Before the end of March, Bernie will have no option other than to suspend his campaign, or withdraw, or graciously concede and endorse Hillary.
Won't that be a glorious day? Then we can all go back to being friends again.
probably hang on until the convention, although the results will be apparent much earlier
Will he be focused more on reality and the unified effort that will be needed to defeat Trump? Or will he be more interested in "other" things? (which I'm hesitant to characterize or describe here for obvious reasons.)
their chance to actually VOTE?
I will be urging Sanders to stay in the race, at least until the June primaries,
regardless of how many he's winning or losing.
