    She's manipulative and cunning. Glad you see it too.

    That said, I'm not a Democrat so I won't be voting in your polls. As it stands, there is no Democrat I'd be voting for this November. There's always a chance I can be persuaded, but it won't be until after the convention at best.
    I don't agree.

    The one thing that Democrats are 100% united on is that Trump has to go. They cannot stop the nomination process and therefore if Sanders wins the 1991 votes needed to automatically be the nominee, then nothing can be done. Nonetheless, I am pretty sure that no one will get the 1991 votes needed and when the delegates get together to decide who has the best chance to beat Trump, Bloomberg will stand out miles above the rest.

    At that time, popularity of Bloomberg will not be the decider. The delegates will intelligently decide on Bloomberg as he is the best chance of getting rid of Trump. After they beat Trump, they can decide on the next election in 2024 whether to back Bloomberg or not, depending on his track record with Democratic values and goals and if he met them or didn't.

    This election is about survival of the party and when that is what is important, people will put their "desires" in storage and vote for the medicine that is needed and that is Bloomberg. He is bitter medicine but it will prevent death and give real hope for health in the future. Any intelligent person can see that.

    Anyhow, that is how I would do it.

    Neither of then fled racially and ethically diverse communities to flee to an all-white town to put his kid into a whites-only school.

    Neither of them joined the Socialist Worker's Party.

    Neither of them said "liberalism is futile" as to why he became a socialist, not a Democrat.

    Neither of them is a racial segregationist who said if white and black children are together it will cause racial disharmony - as all racial segregationists all say.

    Neither of them praised and made excuses for Fidel Castro like Bernie Sanders now has been doing for over half a century.

    Neither of them voted against gun control legislation.

    Neither of them are married to a wife who stole EVERYTHING of a college - putting it into bankruptcy - on loans on false loan application - to give the money to Bernie's kid.
    So what? He is still better than the other option, which is Trump for another 4 years!

    When the choice is between eating garbage or eating sh**, garbage will be chosen by most. Then of course, Trump supporters like the taste of sh**, but they don't count in this case.

    Giving over $10 billion dollars in your life when you make $10 billion a year is like bragging that I've donated $100 over my life working for $30,000 a year. Bloomberg is an abhorrant monster that should not be given any sense of respect. Especially so from people who hate Donald Trump.
    Democrats need to realize that "Bernie or Bust" is already a compromise position.

They don't consider what the cost will be and how it would be paid for, nor do they see a divided congress that's going to say 'no way' to Bernie's plan. People in the older age ranges, 40 - 60 are more forward thinking, less impulsive and more pragmatic. This is why I can't see Bernie being elected and double the odds of him losing once Russia begins the disinformation campaign against him.
    Bernie has the largest support among POC than any other candidate in the race. Your racist attempt at whitewashing Bernie's voting base is disgusting.

    Warren and Sanders are LIGHT YEARS ahead of the republikkklansmen currently in the white nationalist house, led by traitor trump and SStephen Miller. It took trump’s presser to ‘light my fire’. I pray he continues with his outrageous lies, insane blame, whatabout my election, dirty politics, and complete incompetence, incoherence.

    Know this. My Illinois is safe. I live close enough to Wisconsin and Iowa to make a difference in the general election there in those TOUGH states. I will work my ass off for whoever the Democratic nominee is. I MUCH prefer Sanders over Putin, bin Salman, Kim jung un, Xi, erDOGan, Bolsonaro, Modi, Bibi, Assad, ETC, traitor trump’s klan.
