Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can claim to have won the popular vote in each of the first three early states in the Democratic Party presidential primary with his victory in Nevada on Saturday night.
It is the first time a candidate for any major party’s nomination has won the popular vote in all three of the first states.
Opposition to Sanders within the Democratic Party remains strong. There are serious doubts about whether he would be able to defeat President Donald Trump in a general election. His “democratic socialism” is a fringe left-wing philosophy.
Yeah, just keep telling yourself that. I’m afraid observable reality, grim though it be, suggests otherwise. Left-wing philosophy is one hell of a lot less “fringe” than it should be, that’s for sure.
I’m voting for Krayzee Bernie in the WA primary. If he wins the nomination Prez. Trump will kick his ass right up to his shoulder blades. If the Dems cheat him out of it the Bernie Bros. are pissed and withhold their support to some degree.
What’s not to like?
So far, just pluralities, not majorities. That means he can be beaten, but most anti-Bernie candidates need to step down, so a single challenger can emerge. Not looking good for that, actually.
I remember when the Smart People of the GOP were in a bowel-evacuating hissyfit over a possible nominee named Trump. Schadenfreude ist wunderbar!
