    She has more momentum than any candidate right now, and it has been a double digit gain since June in many states.

    She may see another bump if she consolidates that anti-Biden vote, for example if Sanders fades due to health issues. Sanders is fading in some states, he has dropped below 15% threshold to receive delegates in some September polling before the health issue.

    Warren’s biggest problem is the proportional award of delegates. It’s not winner take all, it’s proportional in each state as long as you win at least 15%.

    Her and Biden are above 15% everywhere, but he is killing her in the South on proportionate delegates.

    you have Iowa/NH/Nevada spread out over a month with SC 4 weeks after Iowa ending the month.

    Warren is a sizable betting favorite in all 3 pre-SC. If she wins those 3(in reality Iowa/NH alone would meet this bar) I'd bet basically any amount of money she wins the primary.

    Biden would spend a month getting annihilated for losing those 3, under cutting his entire current campaign narrative. Might then win SC, but then CA/super tuesday is less than a week later where Warren is again a huge favorite.

    (this all assumes things hold which they won't, lots will change before then)

    Maybe, but maybe not, history has a lot of early winners in those state who didn’t have the staying power in March. I think Warren is different than Sanders in 2016, but there are still a lot of voters not picking her or Biden.

    Collectively, there are many states where those two together don’t top 50%. We have to see if this field consolidates and then how.

    There is no doubt the field consolidates by then, not sure why you are questioning it.

    There are plenty of indicators as to how those votes will be dispersed as well.

    I haven't watched all of this video and I'm not trying to start another argument about which particular leftist candidate is the best, but everyone in this video is making great points. Sam Seder really doesn't get enough representation in the podcast/YouTube politics scene and it's a shame.
