Can Bernie Sanders revive his presidential prospects?

NASHUA, N.H. — Inside the local library of this Granite State city, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders is smiling uncharacteristically from ear to ear on the cover of a recent issue of Time magazine.

“Sanders is a crusader with little patience for small, human things,” the accompanying article says of the 2020 presidential candidate. “But will the traits of the crusader, which have gotten him to the threshold of the threshold of power, be enough to get him through the door? Or does the crusader — too focused on health care to do small talk — need to learn that sometimes you have to ask about someone’s kids to get everyone’s kids health care?”

Outside on the sidewalk, people who attended this weekend’s Nashua Pride Parade soon found out. They watched as the man summed up by the Washington Post as “our grumpy grandpa” bounded out of his campaign car shouting “anybody want a selfie?” before marching down Main Street amid a sea of rainbow banners and balloons.

“With so many of the other candidates snuggled up over in the progressive corner of the party,” the Post’s fashion critic wrote this past week, “he can no longer comfortably dress like the absent-minded professor who lost his comb.”

2. No

 

His tired, dated, solitary stump speech railing against millionaires - strike that, billionaires, oligarchs, plutocrats and corporations is boring.


Smart and wise people are seeing through Senator BS plus there are a lot of better candidates.

3. After the last election...

 

… he should have stayed a registered Democrat, learned how to talk nicely about Hillary & Obama, and celebrated how he made the Party more Progressive. He would have had a better chance...

6. No

 

Bernie needs to go away and all his acolytes need a clue. Russia used him in 2016
telling the "Bernie Bros" that Hillary and the DNC stole the nomination from him and
Sanders did little to correct that lie.

7. No, time for sanders to go

 

Unrealistic to see him as the nominee.

10. I doubt it. He has nothing new to offer at this point.

 

He's just repeating the old stuff, over and over again. He's not competing with Biden. He's competing with the rest of the field, and not doing all that well, really with that.
