How do people think a Bernie/Biden ticket would do?

Last edited Fri Feb 14, 2020, 04:43 PM - Edit history (1)

Would Biden take VP for a second time? Would they compliment each other?

Edit:

I’m not sure why so many people think this is a joke. Bernie would anchor the left and Biden would anchor the center.

Neither is my first choice but my first choice dropped out and my second choice needs a miracle.

3. It would be ridiculous.

 

1. An old man with a heart condition should not choose an old running mate.
2. Biden would not take second fiddle again, and certainly not for Bernie.
3. Bernie would not take a running-dog revanchist bourgeois tool of the capitalist oligarchy as a running mate. Biden isn't pure enough.

9. I change my

 

mind every day. Today---Bloomberg/Kobuchar

But in the long run I would really want Adam Schiff/Elizabeth Warren.

Feinstein is my Senator and I know it is time for her to retire and be replaced by Schiff- put him on the next step to the White House!

Edible, maybe even nutritious but not tasty while likely to cause some indigestion (or worse) later on.

22. A compromise ticket

 

with both a progressive and a moderate is the way we need to go to get out the vote, but two 80-year-old men is a doomed prospect.

Better tickets (depending on who the nominee is):

Bernie/Harris
Bernie/Klobuchar
Bernie/Booker

Biden/Warren
Biden/Harris
Biden/Castro

Kiss goodbye the votes of women and POC. Oh, if they're solidly Democratic, yes, they may vote for it, but they won't get out their friends/family.

The moderate Democrats nor inedependents will vote for Sanders.

34. It just flabbergasts me

 

how folks put together two people running for the nomination as a "dream ticket". Picking an also-ran as a running mate is a rare event, and it only worked half the time within my lifetime (Reagan-Bush), it did not work for Kerry-Edwards.

My Dem leaning independent spouse won't vote for Bernie-she's a Trump hater so that's not a concern. I'm not sure what she would do. There's a lot of folks like that. I'll vote whoever is nominated. I'm not feeling good about the situation we Democrats are in
