Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Mon Feb 10, 2020, 11:56 AM

 

I was curious so I looked up the 2016 Iowa and New Hampshire primary results


Iowa: Clinton 49.9%. Sanders 49.6%. O’Malley .6%

New Hampshire: Sanders 60.4%. Clinton 38%. O’Malley .3%

Only 2 viable Democratic Party candidates in 2016.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

1. I predict that Clinton will lose 100% of her support versus 2016

 

And Bernie will lose 55-60% of his support versus 2016.

3. I also looked up the results before you posted this

 

it seems like the more people know Bernie, the less they want Bernie.
So he needs to bring in new people because the voted for him last time people, learned their lesson

4. It's not lesson learning. Last time, people who didn't want presumed frontrunner Hillary...

 

...really had no other viable place to go. This time, people who don't want presumed frontrunner Biden have lots of other people to consider. Combine that with the fact that Biden is not as polarizing as Hillary was, and Bernie's doing well within any reasonable range of expectations. BTA, Joe is not doing as well as Hillary did in 2016, either... and he's more well-liked (higher favorables).
