rather than run as a Dem? It's not like he's not been thru the process before. He went back to an Independent after the loss the last time rather then stick as a Dem.

And apparently that's OK with a plurality of Democrats who are telling pollsters that Bernie is their first choice.

I can't imagine that a majority of the Democratic convention delegates will vote for someone who has tried to paint the Democratic party as just another "establishment" that stands in the way of his vision of America. I am certain that if they do, Trump will be re-elected, and maybe with "establishment" Democrats no longer in office to oppose him.

71. Averaging 28.7% of the Democratic vote is hardly a mandate to lead pur party.

 

RCP averages have Bernie higher than others. Most have him up by single digits. Bloomberg's recent entry was a gift to Bernie, further diluting the massive "not Bernie" vote and mostly taking votes away from Biden.

We'll see how this week's news shakes things out.

I think we're screwed anyway... the divisions he created are too deep. The distrust and resentment he's promoted are too strong. Not enough Democrats will ever rally around him (from what I've observed) and none of his supporters will rally around a Democrat. And, if my observations are accurate, there can be only one outcome.

Say hello to Trump's 2nd term. Say hello to a 8-1 conservative majority in the USSC. Say goodbye to Roe. Watch marriage equality being nibbled away at the edges to the point that it begins to become meaningless.

38. Yes, absolutely ...

 

also no more caucuses and open primaries. Let's eliminate the way to cheat in primaries.

43. It should be who the voters in the Democratic Primary process want as their candidate.

 

Quaint notion, I know.

44. As long as they're not a Republican, don't care.

 

Bernie is a better ally of the Democrats than Joe Manchin is.

George Washington warned us about allegiance to political parties.

50. Yes.

 

Maybe with something like a minimum requirement of at least two consecutive years registered as a Democrat.

63. Yes. It is a requirement to run in our primary.

 

Bernie promised his loyalty to the Democratic Party, and that he would be a member of the party, in order to run in our primary.

So much for keeping his word...

65. Timely

 

Fight that battle. All the way until a Republican is elected.

I get it, the “Bernie’s not a registered Democrat” is a card some feel they need to play to get their personal favorite to win the nomination.

Be smart. Don’t play that card. It’s a Trump card.

73. He is a member of the Democratic Party.

 

He officially changed to D in 2019. Before that, he voted with the Democrats about 98% of the time.

Meanwhile,the DNC had no problem having former Republican and Kissenger bestie Hillary Clinton run on the D ticket. So I don't see how a senator's former political affiliation is a problem here.

74. No he didn't..."He officially changed to D in 2019".....and you can't source it.

 

He's filed in Vermont for his '24 Senate run as an Independent....
From his website....."Bernie Sanders is serving his third term in the U.S. Senate after winning re-election in 2018. His previous 16 years in the House of Representatives make him the longest serving independent member of Congress in American history. "

76. Ideally

 

Why a Democrat isn't trouncing Sanders is a more interesting question.
