    My confidence that Bernie won’t be the nom includes the structural processes within the Democratic Party to determine the eventual nominee.

    Shook? The hand wringing and growing list of excuses Bros are creating for why Bernie could fail isn’t signaling confidence. I believe down deep most bros understand Bernie’s limited appeal and the factional nature of his candidacy.

    It is early and Texas would probably do literally everything they cold to make sure brown people can't vote, but it is game over if Smooth Bernie wins Texas in November. That poll is still very old, wouldn't be surprised to see Bloomberg way up due to Biden being down.

    For the nomination, California trends are really interesting. Sanders is clearly surging and the last few polls have Biden at or below 15% for no delegates. Coupled with the NC polling I mentioned earlier this week and Texas trends, Sanders has an opportunity to land a knock out on 3/3.

    Nothing indicates Bloomberg or Peté/Klob have broad enough strength across the country, but that can change in three weeks because the left/center voters seems to be polling with whomever they think will stick.

    To your point about the general election, Clinton needed 38 more electoral votes to win 2016. Texas is worth 38.

    Trump raised over $60 million in January and is on track for a $1 billion war chest for the general.

    Yes, Bernie’s dominant low to mid 20’s share of the Texas Dem primary will lead to general Electoral glory in November.

    This is a great example of not understanding the American electorate.

    All the more reason Bloomberg will hopefully be true to his word and bankroll pro-nominee and anti-Trump attack ads through the general.

    Rocha may single-handedly get Bernie the nomination by galvanizing the latinx communities. If you watch videos of him he's got the greatest southern Texas accent.

    Texas has not elected a Democrat to a statewide office since 1994. Beto made a very good run at Cruz, but it’s really trouble if Trump is forced to campaign there in 2020.

    I mean he was the head of a gigantic fuck up that ruined a couple candidates big day, made Iowa politics a laughingstock, and poorly set an app that wasn't adequately tested and prepared for.

    Of course he resigned. Occam's Razor people.

    Over 1 million new voters have been registered in Texas since 2016.

    Texas gop has a big gotv effort to find new voters and it’s estimate they found about 12,000. The Republican Party has completely hit their ceiling here which is why their only option is suppression.
