Trump wants Bernie to get the nomination. That should tell you something.

Sanders will be better for America and he has more fire in his belly than Biden.

I get the feeling, though, that the Democrats are more conservative than we/I want them to be.

You think Trump feels more threatened by Biden? I think neither candidate worries Trump. It was, however, Bernie's pushing of socialistic issues in the last race which encouraged Trump to make the (now empty) promises like making heath care even better. If Bernie gets the nod and campaigns on single payer, etc., maybe Trump will again make similar promises and then when Trump wins (which he probably will) maybe even following through (which I doubt). Biden, however, is an empty suit and an even easier target for Trump's roasting. In other words I think Bernie's substance laden platform will hold back Trump more than Biden's insubstantial blah blah blah.

Don't kid yourself about Bernie. Trump knows he can beat Bernie, and even though he can probably defeat Biden as well, it would be more difficult.

I fear Trump will win these elections again. But, if not, I am really looking forward to the outrageous tweets he will be sending to the world.

Trump should be beaten to death!!! I don't care who does it.

I just pray that someone does beat him.

Biden has the better chance but I think either will have a hard time. However, it will depend on how the economy is doing and with the world tumbling it will be interesting to see what happens. If it comes out the Trump screwed up the Corona Virus it could be an easy win for the democrats.

The more interesting race is will the Dems take back the senate?

Bernie concedes Florida from the get go. That right there gives Biden the edge.

The question at hand is who would best beat Trump not who will win the primary. Yes, things are looking up for Biden - way up - but if Bernie somehow wins - cuz who knows? - and Biden really is losing his mind ... So, if it's cogent Sanders vs senile Biden, who'd best beat Trump?

Sanders.

I WAS talking about the general election. Sanders has no shot in Florida after praising Castro (and his criticism of Israel won’t help either).

Spotting the highest delegate swing state to Trump from the outset is a bad way to go.

I don't understand this sentence. I think because I'm not familiar with this use of 'spotting'. Would you mind explaining?

It is slang. It essentially means lending an advantage.

Basically, Sanders' young base talks a good game, but what the primary has proved is that they're better at screaming about revolution than they are at actually doing the work. You know who's really great at getting actual boots on the ground? Republicans.

I don't love Biden as a candidate, and Bernie's ideals are probably closer to my own than his, but I don't find it wise to pit two extremes against each other when one side has shown repeated ability at not only getting their hands dirty, but actually fighting dirty.

The lack of people actually voting for the revolution that is allegedly essential and needs to be immediate does not bode well for its success.

It's kind of bizarre to me that these people are not getting out to vote. It's easy to be judgemental but i'm not sure that provides any answers. Mind you America doesn't make it easy for anyone to vote. Just another example of weird America.

I just don’t think there’s as many as we want there to be. The people who care vote.
