1. Misleading headline. Only 26% thought Bernie "made the best case."

 

74% thought he did not.

3. That's not how this works.

 

If 26% thought he made the best case, that means every other candidate made an even worse case.

By your own argument, 79% of people thought Biden made a worse case.

4. That's not how statistics work.

 

You cannot generalize like that based on pointed questions.

5. That's still better than any other candidate.

 

When there are that many candidates still in the running 26% isn't bad.

6. No they don't.

 

He's +7 in Michigan. He's +2 in Wisconsin (the same as every Democrat). He's +5 in North Carolina, which is better than Biden. He's +4 in PA.

Bernie is also beating Trump by +18 with independents. Far better than any other candidate.

I wish you all would stop making these false claims about polls.

10. Very telling poll

 

After Sanders got slammed from every angle including the crowd. Looks unstoppable.

11. That crowd was bought.

 

They had to pay almost $2000 a ticket and they were only cheering the Billionaire.

13. Interesting - you say they were "bought" and then say they PAID almost $2000? That's contradictory.

14. Well, the tickets cost that much.

 

There is strong speculation that Bloomberg bought those tickets for his cheering crowd.

15. "Strong speculation" - in other words nothing real. Why would the other candidates and other....

 

....organizations sell their tickets to Bloomberg instead of their own people or do what normally happens, give them to their supporters or members?

So Sanders supporters claim that Bloomberg stacked the audience, Krystal Ball says the DNC rigged the audience. Fact is, no one riged or stacked anything.
