Well he could just cuz Drumpf is so unpopular now (outside his hardcore base)

 

But if they get a new runner I don't know. I feel like most moderates would prefer another republican than go as far left as Bernie

 

Bernie seems to left for America. Even here in Canada he'd be too far left. He's like the NDP party here and out of the 3 major parties that's the one that struggles to win the most. They haven't won nationally in ages and only like 2 or 3 Provinces have them currently

 

If a more left Country like Canada is reluctant to go that far left I don't see America doing it

 

But then again u never know. I didn't expect Drumpf to win in the first place

 

But I feel like swing states in particular Bernie would be a hard sell

I think it would be interesting to watch Bernie as president vs Bernie the campaigner. I don't like saying he's all talk, but he functions a lot better outside the "system" than he does within the confines of one. I think he's a better campaigner than legislator. To that end, I wonder if as president he would be tempered down at all and to what degree because that would be the determinant of his being elected to a second term rather than what he says now. Obama also promised a lot of fairly "radical" things at the time, but got trampled by Republican obstinance, the financial crash, etc. which ended up making him *much* more moderate than many believed he would be which is where some are disappointed by his term. Bernie is further left, sure, but even still I think he would be tempered.

Hope he is ok and will be. In the other hand he is number 2 in this race for me.

 

Biden is not even close to being ideal btw

Sanders is the most popular active politician in America. He outpolls all of the 2020 candidates but Biden in every swing state by double digits and Biden’s residual popularity is literally just name recognition and nostalgia for the Obama years that will dissipate the second his campaign gets started. He outpolled Trump in every swing state by a much wider margin than Clinton did in 2016.

 I’m begging you guys to read literally any poll.

Guys he's not "too left",:fail: Corbyn in the UK (a socialist just like Bernie) when he ran in the 2017 election won the largest increase in the share of the vote by a Labour leader since 1945.

Being left wing/socialist is the only way to win votes against the right, centrism doesn't work anymore.
