Bernie snuck up on them. How many times were we told people liked Bernie but he didn't stand a chance?

So now, the polls are screaming that Bernie will win NH and may just take Iowa.

Bernie's opposition was counting their chickens before they hatched and just let H commit political suicide before they realized we were sneaking up on them.

Except we weren't sneaking... we've been out loud for 9 months, they just refused to hear us.

Here's a thread of mine from 9 months ago
