Biden vs Bernie

It doesn't matter who I support--I will vote Democrat. However, choice may come to be this simple, ( I hope not) 1. Nominate Bernie--get his supporters, along with most if not all other Democrats,(albeit some reluctantly), and few (more liberal) independents, and then pray that moderate and/or conservative independents stay home. As well as Republican "Never Trumpers" 2. Nominate Biden--get some Bernie supporters, along with all other Democrats, (again, some reluctantly,) a good many liberal and/or moderate independents, as well as some moderate Republicans and most Republican "Never Trumpers" Pray that conservative independents stay home and that pissed off Bernie supporters DO NOT VOTE FOR TRUMP but rather stay home.------------please discuss, this is only an idea, and I need to learn as well as adjust my medications, (which I will do now)

1. I don't see anything that makes either candidate better than the other

 

I am polling young people I know because voters my age and older have been failing marginalized people for my entire life.

2. most people don't react well to blackmail

 

and most knowledgeable people don't look only at the presidential election but at the entire election including impacts to senate and house races.

3. so everyone has taken the pledge

 

vote blue no matter who.

I see a lot of posts here from Biden people who end or begin their posts with this.

I know I have.

Why don't I see posts from Bernie supporters saying the same thing?

And why is it, although sometimes unspoken, that Joe's people are calculated is these sorts of speculations as voting for Bernie whereas if Biden is the nominee, is is EXPECTED that Bernie people will either stay home OR vote for Trump?

This is often used as an argument why Bernie should win the nomination and not Joe.

4. This is the calculation millions have already made (in their own minds) to determine "electibility"

 

Polling trends have been consistent. Just saying...

5. I am rather surprised........

 

....given Joe and Bernie's starkly different platforms, that there are any undecideds anywhere.
