    Could be ... :auiqs.jpg:

    “When I look at some of these other candidates out there, I can see them just sucking any enthusiasm from any undecided voters. So anyone who might have been for Bernie won’t vote for Biden, or any of the others out there,” Jackelen the Washington Examiner after a Sanders town hall in Newton.


    “I think that people will sit at home because they see establishment Democrats that don’t really care. The only thing that they bring to the table is that they’re not Trump. That is not going to drive enough people out that will get a win over Trump,” he said.

    The D party has picked centrists before. They always lose when they do.

    O campaigned as a progressive and won. Of course, he was a terrible fraud. He clearly was a corporatist warmongering centrist.

    Tough choice, sit at home and guarantee a Trump win or put up Sanders and guarantee a Trump win.

    I see this happening. I also see an impeachment of Trump as a certainty that Bernie will win in 2020. He is the only candidate Trump supporters would vote for, if at all (most won't vote at all) just to spite the Establishment.

    Hell, 45% of the electorate boycotted the 2016 election and that was a normal thing.

    If we weren't saddled with the inane suppository of the WTA/EC, this might actually have some power to it. For the vast majority of the 55% who do show up, "voting" is an illusion anyway. They're getting tossed directly into the crapper.

    No Trump supporter will vote for Sanders, and the Romper Room impeachment will change no one's mind.

    I think that person is underestimating the left's hatred for Trump and their desire to not see a repeat of 2016

    Thank you. It sounds like stating the obvious but we had plentiful wags on these pages leading up to 2016 trying to equate the two as if they were appealing to the same elements.
