Kamala at 10%.

4. and the latest South Carolina poll a couple of days ago seem to confirm that

 

the latest 2020 poll in South Carolina, at least at this point in time, that Sanders, who is a known, still does not appear to have much traction there.

"Fifty-five percent of the likely S.C. Democratic primary voters surveyed were African-Americans, who account for more than 60 percent of the state’s Democratic voters.
“When we only asked about already declared candidates (not including Sanders who hadn’t yet declared), black voters overwhelmingly supported Booker (38 percent) and Harris (37 percent),” said polling firm chief executive Mike Greenfield. “But with Biden, Sanders (and) Beto in the race, Biden has a clear lead among black voters, with 43 percent,” and Booker, Harris and Sanders all at 13 percent.

9. Biden, Kamala and Booker splitting the vote

 

Is one way Sanders could win some southern states or at least keep his delegate deficit low.

5. Somehow I don't see Biden running.

 

And I think him running might be a good thing. I can definitely see him winning should he run.

7. The day that an unannounced politician who is the front-runner in the polls decides NOT to run...

 

...I will check out the ski slopes in hell.

6. Name recognition polls have little use...

 

Outside of understanding name recognition and propoganda. I would think people here know this.
