There doesn't seem to be valid reasons behind the switch, which is exceedingly un-Nate-like.

I don't really get it. He's normally over-cautious, not throw-caution-to-the-wind.

92. Yeah..Someone tweeted that maybe something was wrong with him and could someone check.

 

He was giving states like Tennessee, Alabama, and Oklahoma to Bernie defying all logic and poll history. Bernie is 5th in Oklahoma. He's behind by 20 or more in all those states. He gave both of Warren's states to him. Mass. where he's actually third and Minn. where he's fourth. It was bizarre. Why would a second place Iowa .finish impact for him but not a first place finish for Buttigieg? Crazy

112. I'm assuming his model is factoring in poll changes based on expected earlier results.

 

So a strong win in NH leading to a good win in NV, leading to a strong second place in SC, creating a big bump going into Super Tuesday.

Just a guess on my part, and if I'm right it still doesn't account for unexpected events of course, but it seems the only way to explain what he's predicting. Especially if a good showing with AA voters in SC had a knock-on effect in other heavily AA states.

Three or more of his top advisors voted Green. HE HIRED THEM. They voted for Stein. Nina is proud to be one of them. True Democrats will rally around the winner. Sanders supporters...nope. They will do just what they did last time, vote third party or sit home and whine.

I am sorry, Gore...this is a well known fact.

We don't win with just Democrats. We have to appeal to a share of Independents and moderate Republicans as well, esp. in PA, Mi and Wi.

Reminder, when we won in 2018, we did so with moderate candidates in suburban districts, not AOC-types.

base, the best ground game, the best policies, and the best ability to unite both young and older.

Nobody is enthusiastic about Biden, most young voters will probably not vote for him, and he's going to have to face the Ukraine scandal that Trump created for him, which is going to get worse based on what the Treasury is now doing.

Biden is ahead in 10 upcoming primaries after NH. Warren in two. Bernie in 5. Three of the ones he has Bernie winning have recent polls showing Bernie 20 or more points behind. Bernie is 5th in one, 4th in one, and 3rd in another. Poll numbers on 538 disprove all of this. A joke.

Biden has 48% of black vote. Bernie has 17%. Bernie is way behind in southern states. In Florida he's behind by 20 in a poll posted today. After NH Bernie will be out of tiny white states to win. It will suck for him.

Check out Bernie’s numbers with AA voters nation-wide. Biden has 15 endorsements from members of the CBC to Bernie’s how many?

You can’t spin away Bernie’s lack of AA support by subbing in Iowa “minorities” or Hispanic people.

Bernie campaigned for 5 years and lost support. Two small white states don’t really impress those of us from big diverse states.

He lost the white vote and the minority vote. How does that translate into winning those categories in bigger states?

94. I don't think so.

 

People are going to change their vote based on tiny white NH. Biden's base is waiting for him. They're ready to vote and totally pissed at the hype. Pete and Bernie have no chance to switch the black vote. None. They're faithful to Biden. Bernie is still behind in every southern state w/ Pete way back. That will never change. Congrats on the win today.

Also..for the devotees of early white state primacy, Bill Clinton didn't win until the 6th primary in '92. He started his run with Georgia, the South.

The South -

Alabama - Biden +21%

Florida - Biden +15.7 Average +20 Latest

Georgia - +14.7% Ave. +19% Latest

Miss. Biden +26%

Missouri - Biden +25% Sanders 5th

N. Carolina - Biden +9.7% Ave, +9 Latest

S. Carolina - Biden +15.7% Ave, + 18 Latest Sanders 3rd

Tenn. Biden +15 Sanders 3rd

Texas - Biden +6

VA. - Biden +10.1 Ave. +14 Latest

Biden up the entire polled south. NH won't change that.


HailStateForever@PamChas2

Black people are not going to vote for anyone other than Biden in SC at the same rate. They are not focused on two white states, that exclude them. When Biden gets to my state, we will vote for him as well. Buttigieg and Klobuchar won’t gain his support, nor will they last.

Every Democrat is going to be called a Socialist, a communist, or some other stupid insult. Anyone that is actually swayed by that was never going to vote for a Democrat anyway. An Iowa voter just abandoned Pete after voting for him because she found out he's gay. Warren is going to get trashed for being a woman and a former Republican. Bloomberg is going to get destroyed for being an out of touch billionaire who is just trying to protect the rich elites and stop and frisk. Young people will never vote for Bloomberg.

And he used to be involved with the SWP, which was actually Communist. That will stick to him. They'll call any Democrat (or any person pretending to be one every four years) a socialist, but he's the only one who's actually confessed to it. And he doesn't even seem to understand that the Nordic model he's trying to sell isn't socialist - those countries are constitutional monarchies and parliamentary democracies whose economic systems consist of regulated capitalism with robust social programs (and high taxes).

69. There's a difference between calling Sanders a socialist and calling Bloomberg one.

 

The former is an identification that the candidate himself has used freely. It's somewhat inaccurate, actually, but Sanders has saddled himself with it nonetheless.

The latter is laughable. No one is going to buy that Bloomberg is a socialist.

91. I've never seen a candidate come in a distant third or fourth in either IA or NH and win the nom

 

My pessimism is rooted in the reality that since Iowa, Biden's numbers have slumped and that's just with one shit-show of a caucus hitting him. What's it going to be like when you add a fourth-place showing in New Hampshire? If Biden doesn't turn it around in NH, and again, I am not saying he has to win the dang thing, just prove competitive, he will have to turn around and produce one of the biggest, and most stunning, comebacks in Democratic primary history.

Here's the facts:

2016: Hillary won Iowa, finished second in NH
2008: Obama won Iowa, finished second in NH
2004: Kerry won Iowa and New Hampshire
2000: Gore won Iowa and New Hampshire
1992: Iowa was noncompetitive due to Harkin running, Clinton finished a strong second in NH
1988: Dukakis finished second in Iowa, won New Hampshire
1984: Mondale won Iowa, finished second in New Hampshire
1980: Jimmy Carter won the most committed votes in Iowa, won New Hampshire
1972: George McGovern finished second in New Hampshire

Since the primaries were radically changed prior to the '72 election, no Democrat has ever won the nomination without finishing second or better in New Hampshire.

Biden doesn't need to win New Hampshire. But if these two new polls are right, and he's at 11%, and a distant fourth behind Bernie, Mayor Pete and Warren, he'd have to mount the greatest comeback in primary history to win,

That's why I am so certain that if he flames out in NH (again, not loses, just loses badly), he's pretty much toast.

History might not repeat itself but it often does rhyme and what history tells us is that the nominee is going to be someone who finishes either first or second in New Hampshire - fair or not.

43. It's called the domino effect.

 

It's silly to dismiss it.

We don't know what Biden's lead is in any of these states because we haven't seen polls from 'em since Iowa. The lone poll that was actually out in the field post-Iowa was the PPP poll from North Carolina and Biden leads +9. That's promising. However, the last PPP poll had Biden at +13 a month ago. Biden also went from leading 31-18-8 over Bernie & Bloomberg in that poll to leading now 25-16-14. Biden's lead shrank from +13 to +9 but more troubling is that his overall vote total shrank from 31% to 25% - a six-point drop in less than a month.

That's just comparing a PPP poll to a PPP poll. The last FOX News poll, released in November, had Biden +22!

We don't know what his standing is in almost every one of those states he leads. Even SC is uncertain, as the latest poll there came out the day before the Iowa Caucus.

What we do know is that in every post-Iowa poll, Biden has lost support. He's lost support nationally and he's lost support in New Hampshire (quite a bit, actually) as well as North Carolina.

It doesn't take someone with a political science degree to see that another poor showing in New Hampshire will only continue the polling trend.

No one likes a loser. It's not fair Iowa and NH went first but we've got to stop pretending these states were that big of a disadvantage for Joe. The problem isn't that Joe lost, though, it's how he lost. Joe consistently out-polled his final result in Iowa for the entire campaign. If he drops to fourth in NH, as two new polls show, that will be two races in a row Biden, who led in many other polls there, has not even been competitive. That opens a lot of questions about his main argument: that he can win.

Bernie has more support from both sides of the aisle than Biden does. Most Republicans are not going to vote for a Democrat. Right-leaning Independents are most likely going to vote for Trump. Everyone else will vote for whoever the Dem nominee is. And only Bernie can win the young vote and the 50% who didn't vote in 2016. He also wins the Latino vote.

29. Biden and Pete's fall strategy worked great.

 

Bernie thanks you. Couldn’t be doing it without the big lift from Joe and Pete’s camps spending 3months attacking Warren while laying off Sanders.

Shortsighted and cynical is not an attractive combination.

119. No, Anyone in their right mind knows Sanders is 1 billion times better than Trump...the issue is

 

while Sanders can possibly win a primary( I still have my doubts) many including me, think he loses a general, endangers the house and can't help with the Senate. If I thought Sanders would beat Trump, I would vote for him in the primary and the general...but I don't. So Sanders gets my vote only in the General...and I will do what I can to see that we have a different nominee.

131. They have no chance of beating Trump...

 

wishful thinking. I doubt Warren will make it much past New Hampshire...as for Sanders...I will vote for Bloomberg If I have to and so will others who want trump gone. If Sanders made it to the general, he has my vote but never in a primary. I would add one thing Warren with a good VP who can get AA voters and the blue wall states...could win. Sanders...no.

a billionaire, but a billionaire who was once a Republican and spoke at the 2004 Republican convention supporting Bush and Cheney? That is wishful thinking.

I remember reading Camus' "The Plague" in high school, and the thing that stuck with me was everybody ignoring the deadly emergency at the beginning. "it's not really happening" is pretty close to "That's a bit overwrought..."
