    Rally around dementia ridden candidate who is firmly in 5th place right before Super Tuesday and blame those who they should be making allies of when plan fails.

    Nobody is fired up to vote for Biden. The younger and more progressive demographic couldn't even show up to vote for their preferred candidate.

    You guys should just stay home in November.

    there's not a lot of evidence for this, it's just that everyone turned out it insane numbers. You're completely forgetting Bernie won the first three states in terms of popular vote which had never happened before, it's not like he was dead before it even started.

    bernie narrowly won a crowded field when he was only competing against one other person for the progressive vote. When the deck was cleared and it was 2 progressives and 2 moderates he got crushed.

    I do find the largely white progressives in their 20’s and 30’s trying to convince the larger and more decisive black portion of the democratic coalition that Biden is racist and failing for the last 18 months rather interesting.

    Progressives need to have better messaging to black people next time around.

    Exactly. Bernie wasn’t able to after 3 years. It’s a problem for progressives, and needs to be figured out if the left is going to make meaningful shifts in the dem caucus.

    Honestly there’s like five states that matter electorally. For most people the presidential vote is a pointless exercise.

    Progressives need older voters, young black people voted for Bernie generally.

    it really doesn't matter with all your gloating it's not like he's going to run again, it's going to be more challenging to figure out another person who can unify the left movement. I'd love Tlaib or Omar but I don't think either could run for president.

    Helps that Trump and Republicans are saying out loud that they are willing to sacrifice the old and unhealthy to get the economy going.

    Also, maybe, everyone here including me was wrong about which dem candidate was mostly likely to beat Trump? Biden is old and clearly past it. But maybe the yokels who respond to polling like down the middle Dems who have been on tv since the 1980's.

    Leftist twitter jumping on every Biden gaff which is repeated by far right twitter which is amplified by millions of zombie Twitter accounts and becomes a story covered by mainstream media. Leftist twitter says they aren’t responsible for anything. Rinse, repeat

    Biden gaffes like today don't matter electorally. The election will be all about Trump and the economy.

    Focus on the senate and house races. And locally, try like hell to defeat whatever whacko is on the city council or state senate.

    What % of tax revenue is he missing by not raising taxes on people who make 400k? That's an odd sticking point when the people who need to be taxed make a few fuck loads more than that

    i guess it’s probably minimal but i imagine those in the 250-400K could spare some extra change for some cool shit

    i say that as someone who will never be in that bracket tho
