Republicans pray for Bernie as Democratic nominee

"Republicans like their chances of keeping the Senate in 2020. But there’s one thing they think would all but seal the deal: Bernie Sanders as the Democratic presidential nominee. Some GOP incumbents are practically cheering him on, confident there’s no way a self-described democratic socialist could win a general election against President Donald Trump and that he’d drag other Democrats on the ballot with him.


“It would be good for us to have a nominee like that,” said Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), who is up for reelection next year and sounded downright giddy about the prospect of Sanders representing Democrats at the top of the ticket.

Trump and the Senate GOP have explicitly designed their 2020 strategy around Sanders, beating the anti-socialism drum incessantly and attempting to tether every Democrat on the ballot to what they call a creep away from capitalism and toward collectivism. And though he’s consistently trailing former Vice President Joe Biden at this early stage, some top Republicans said they sincerely believe Sanders has a legitimate shot at winning.

"The strategy shows Republicans are much more comfortable talking about Sanders and tying other Democrats to his brand of socialism than they are in defending this year's meager legislative agenda. But Republicans could be making the same mistake Democrats made four years ago, when Trump launched his presidential campaign and they began salivating over the prospect of a Senate sweep."

1. I think they really want Biden

 

All the "trumpfts afraid of Biden" and Biden tweets. trumpfts not afraid of Biden, in fact probably more afraid of Sanders who could have crossover and would get the younger vote. The "leaks" that his advisors told him not to get involved in the primaries and trumpft tweeting about Biden all tell me that that's who they want.

They're picking our candidate, and they want Biden.

I'm talking about trumpfts behavior. He treats this like a World Wrestling match. All the tweets about Biden, supposedly with his advisors telling him not to...it's all staging. He's not afraid of Biden, sees Biden as most like himself.

republicans saying they want Sanders as the nominee? Sure they do, that's why they're telling us now? No, they want to scare people away from Sanders and over to Biden, because that's who they want to run against.

13. They clearly want Bernie as the Dem nominee, and have for awhile

 

Republican strategist Karl Rove says Bernie Sanders could beat Donald Trump in 2020

GOP superpacs have spent money on ads to help Sanders:

American Crossroads and Bernie Sanders helped Nevada caucus-goers see right through Hillary Clinton's manufactured zeal on immigration reform after spewing virulent Trump-like rhetoric — and that one-two punch shaved Clinton's 50-point lead a year ago to a slim, single digit win. - Steven Law, president and CEO of American Crossroads


And RW sources are working to discredit Biden to Democrats by spreading the edited 2015 clip that many Sanders supporters have been sharing where he expressed, out of context, that he liked Dick Cheney, and had been friends with him.

The Mueller investigation found that Russia was actively supporting Sanders as well as Trump. The GOP clearly thinks that Sanders will be much easier to beat. They won't say a bad word about him unless he gets the nomination.

Then all the oppo they have gathered would be released in a carefully timed manner.

anything but demonize it, and that is all Trump knows how to do. He doesn’t understand our government and can’t speak to any issues, no substance on policy, no sense of history, no sense of how to counter economic failures of the Bush years, can’t explain trade. All he does is name call and demonize.

Biden can easily trip him up and has already. They want Sanders and they especially want to to tie socialism to all Democrats. Biden didnt go for it. Socialism hands Trump the brainless attacks that he can run with.

Whether it's Biden or Sanders or Harris or Warren or whomever, our choice really shouldn't be based on anything they say or pretend they want. Let's not bother guessing what they want or don't want or might be presenting as reverse psychology because they are not playing 4D chess.

Trump's admin has rarely been right about anything they didn't cheat for or misrepresent. The man himself has cratered multiple businesses endeavors (how does a CASINO lose money??) despite being "the high IQ-est ever person ever in history."

trump is afraid of Joe Biden



The Republican Party would love to run against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) because they could make the election all about Sanders and socialism instead of Trump. They want to run against Buttigieg because they think they can use his sexual orientation and youth against him.

The person that Trump can’t figure out is Joe Biden. Trump has tried the “Sleepy Joe” attack but has flopped. Trump has now moved on to trying to attack Biden’s populism by coining him “1% Joe.” This also won’t work, especially coming from Donald Trump. Trump fears Biden’s populism and former vice president’s appeal in Rust Belt states.

Biden scares Trump, and that fear is never more obvious than when Trump starts talking about his potential opponents in 2020.

4. You bet

 

The repubs/trump would attack Bernie as a socialist over and over again. Most importantly, trump does not want to run against Biden. Part of trump's reelection plan is to win Pennsylvania. Biden was born and raised in Pennsylvania. Biden has a close relationship with blue collar workers who know they've been screwed by trump. We even are seeing folks over 55 moving towards Biden. Beating trump is all that matters. A Biden/Harris ticket would be formidable.

I really think they do. I think they are scared of our young candidates who are acute, exceptionally qualified and decades younger than trump.

Trump wants to run against Biden or Sanders, both appear older than him and both have long careers that he can attack as he cherrypicks issues.

If its's Biden, Trump will go on and on about Biden voting for NAFTA.

If it's Sanders, it will be 24/7 socialism=red menace.

Joe Biden is ahead 30 plus points in the pools as of now. I realize things are early yet. But I do not see Bernie getting the Nomination being that he is NOT a Democrat in any sense.

This is NOT an attack on Bernie Sanders. Just the truth as I see it.

He was "concerned" that if Dems don't nominate Bernie, then all our Millennials and other progressives will sit out the general election.

Of course, Matthews saw right through the GOPer's ploy, interrupting him to accuse the guy of "trying to get Bernie nominated! That's what you really want, isn't it?"

The GOPer looked kind of sheepish, but he didn't deny it.
