    its really moronic that arbitrary state sequencing has such a big impact

    like despite Biden having a huge SC lead he'll never win if he loses everything prior

    you have to prioritize democratic feelings or party power, balancing both gets clunky

    Shit is obviously still fluid, but with the strength of Bernie’s numbers...

    Warren will be on life support if she finishes 3rd in Iowa. Why? Because Bernie is all but certain to carry the mo of his IA win/2nd into NH for another W. At that point, he is not just the front runner but the “anti-Biden” choice as well. Wind will be out of the sails for Warren bc it’ll be Bernie carrying the progressive mantle.

    A lot hinges on NV/SC since Biden lucks out w/ half of ST states being favorable.

    If Warren supporters unite behind Bernie and he wins NV, I’ll actually start to believe he’ll be the nominee. If Warren refuses to step aside and Biden squeaks by for his 1st/2nd win, he probably gets a much needed W in SC and then goes into ST at worst 2-2 or 3-1...

    This where the establishment comes in hard for Biden since they hate Sanders and blame his supporters for HRC’s loss (I don’t hold that view btw). Starting to feel like ‘16 all over again...

    Weren't you the one lamenting the “ingrained misogyny” that apparently still exists inside the dem electorate not so long ago? When did it become an impossibility for her to finish 3rd?

    huh?

    Vegas has her as the current favorite to win Iowa fwiw, building a hypothetical off her finishing third among another half dozen things potentially happening is dumb and inventing something to get mad about

    but have it chief

    I thought the misogyny argument was about Dem voters who liked her but doubted her electability, and were thus likely to support Bernie/Biden instead. But enough arguing over this, I used a poll that shows Warren in 3rd to describe the ripple effects should those numbers match the caucus results. None of us knows for sure what’ll happen. Gonna be a lot of attack ads, verbal spars, etc. You’ll notice I also prefaced the post by conceding things are fluid.

    You can find a poll to show you pretty much anything, like Trump having a net positive approval rating every once in awhile (Rasmussen). That’s why you should look at things in the aggregate.

    Electability is a house of cards. No one thought Obama was electable in 2007. No one thought Trump was electable on Nov. 1, 2016.
