  1. How is Bernie surging without that NYT endorsement?? /s

  2. What is Biden running on – other than being “friends” with Barrack Obama?

    • @Vacuum guys Return to decency? Really? Is that the bar now? Want decency? Go to church on sunday. Want policies that will benefit the country? Vote for real, consistent leadership.

      Return to decency … WTF?

    • @Vacuum guys Every democratic candidate offers that. Heck, saying “I am a Democrat!” is more unique than that. At least it would be debatable for some of the others.
      THAT is how devoid of substance Biden is.
      Trump would swallow him whole.

    • Biden is running on the “my best friend is Black” excuse!

    • On “sniff your hair but won’t give you health care”?

      Biden is running on the promise of no change in the incomes of billionaires.

      Seriously–that’s his most concrete pledge. He’s not pledging to never cut social security and food stamps. Biden is only pledging to protects the incomes and asset streams of the donors who own the Democratic party.

    He is correct. Don’t you see that? Bernie 2020

  4. let’s go Bernie!!!

  5. It’s good to see the confirmation in the polls that Warren’s scheme to try to smear Sanders has backfired and bit her in the a$$. 😀

    • @Ice 247 it’s called political strategy

    • Yang is the true canidate. He will shock everyone soon. Get behind him

      Warren’s drop in the polls started long before the confrontation with Sanders, hence the necessity for the confrontation. Sen. Warren picked a stupid fight instead of a smart one. Sen. Warren’s problems started when she finally answered the questions about how much her health care plan would cost, and when she admitted that number, voters began to wonder whether “I have a plan for that” is enough and always means that the plan is the most cost effective one. Does anyone doubt that if Bernie wins the nomination, he will spend a lot of time between the convention and Election Day trying to explain why middle class people (not just the super rich) should be willing to pay higher taxes to receive the services he wants the government to offer, when very few people probably want _all_ of those services, and would prefer to pay only for the ones that benefit them? For example, if you have a 14-year old and a 12-year old, free college tuition sounds good. “Yay, Bernie! I love the idea of all earners in America helping to pay for my kids’ tuitions.” However, if you’re 40 with a good health plan, MfA sounds risky. “Nice idea, but not worth it to me, Bernie.” So, you support Bernie on point A, but not point B. Suppose you decide point B is more important. You would be willing to give up A, not to have to participate in B. We make decisions like this all the time in our everyday lives. You might vote for Trump to prevent being forced into MfA or not vote at all for prez. Unfortunately, Bernie is trying to appeal to his 46% (or the 47% that Romney said would never consider voting for him) like Trump is trying to appeal to his 46%. Has Bernie figured out how to appeal to the workers, who believe they will never be rich and don’t necessarily want to be — being secure would be enough — _and_ the middle class and professional class, who would like to be rich and are actively pursuing higher incomes in the hopes of moving up the financial ladder, but like everyone but the super-rich, are being screwed by Trump? If he doesn’t do that, he can’t ask those families making, say, $75,000 to $150,000 a year to sacrifice more for the poor, just because it’s a nice thing to do, can he? We are left with a rerun of 2016, but for different reasons. The problem is that Trump can win with 46% and a Democrat can’t eke out a victory even with 48%, as Hillary proved. How many Americans support the whole panoply of Bernie proposals and are willing to pay for the ones from which they get no benefit or none in the foreseeable future because it would be good for the country somewhere down the road? Unless the answer is 70 million or more sufficiently motivated to vote, he fails, and progressive ideas probably disappear for decades. Bernie goes on and on about the workers and opposing the establishment, to which the middle and professional classes belong and from which they have benefited. Is that the way to keep Hillary voters in the fold? Hillary probably thought in 2016 that Sanders voters would come around because, after all, what other choice was there? Well, if she had looked at a sample ballot, she would have seen that there were Donald Trump, Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, and the ever-popular “vote for the Congress (where Dems picked up seats in both Houses in 2016 while Trump was winning the presidency) but not president.” Does Sen. Sanders believe that Hillary voters have nowhere else to go and that he can automatically count on them, as well as adding in four or five million more progressive voters, which is what is needed to defeat Trump? Is he even going to bother to try to win NC, GA, AZ, IA in November and blast Trump into political oblivion, branded a big loser, like Carter in 1980, like GHW Bush in 1992? Those are the questions Sen. Sanders needs to answer, not whether he said a woman can or cannot be elected president in a private conversation.

    • Yang is the only canidate Trump fears for a reason

      @Ice 247 It wasn’t him. It was a surrogate. And if you don’t feel any candidate who has ever fought back (smear), you’ve probably never voted.

    Everyone the media says “heart attack” we donate more

  7. Bernie all the way

  8. Keep up the fire. Bernie 2020🔥

  9. Vote in your primary, we have to swarm to win against the establishment

    • @Canadian Progressive Hillary’s big mistake was not to have Bernie be her running mate.

    • @Ian685 Trump fears everybody! He was willing to sell out the Ukraine because he feared Joe Biden so much!

    • @Ian685 Nope. I’ve listened to him. He’s just another business guy who thinks he can run the country like a business. He’s ok, but just ok. Bernie knows what this country needs and how the political system works.

    • @Dorothy Mack you really think he is scared of of repeat Pete. lol

    • @Ian685 He’s scared of being out of the White House and facing the SDNY and the IRS and the oligarchs he owes so much money to.

  10. Don’t even try it. We’ve been to this rodeo. Bernie Sanders is going to be our next president.

    You can tell it’s hard for them to even cover that Bernie is up on top.

      Yes they threw in the heart attack too. Pathetic

      ivorbukovac I feel sorry for you Ivan. Your country is so depressing

    • Really? As a former Berner he has no chance. we are tired of low wages. We are also tired of middle America being ignored. Yang is the answer.. UbI over frederal job garentee

      *Funny how they despise a traditional Democrat like Bernie Sanders.*
      Sanders is just a mild New Dealer, in an era following 40 years of the country moving far to the right. The entire panel is well to the right of center on everything except abortion and LGBTQ rights. They’re Republicans with a “D” after their names.

    2016 Warren Backs Hillary Over Bernie 2019 Warren Splits The Progressive Base 2020 Warren Smears Bernie As A Sexist

    • @Ice 247 go youtube dozens of videos of joe Biden advocating for cuts to social security and cspan editing those videos too?

    • Bernie told the truth about biden, that is not a smear.

    • Hard Boiled Mahoney | January 27, 2020 at 4:41 PM | Reply

      I liked Warren, I really did. But when she started to divide men and women I had second thoughts, when she went after Bernie, I had one thought, I won’t vote for her.

    • @Ice 247 do you know what a smear is? Bernie told the truth and it’s policy based. Not a smear

  16. Honestly, Our only choice, BERNIE, gets my vote and IM 74

  17. Two things to eliminate in the coming years 1. The Coal Industry 2. The Medical Insurance Industry.
    Both are killing People.

    If we arnt moving forward then we are moving backwards.

    Bernie Sanders 2020

  19. Legend!, it’s Bernie’s moment, everything he’s ever stood for has brought him to this moment.

  20. Outside of the elite bubble, the common people who actually follow politics have no other rational choice other than Bernie Sanders.
