Biden is going to roll Bernie in the SC Primary - How does the Democrat race play out after that?

    Well SC US Representative Clyburn who influences how a lot of the black people vote in SC or has a huge bearing on it at least has basically let the cat out of the bag the last few days he is endorsing Biden. That means it would be a mini-miracle for Bernie Sanders to even stay within 9% of Biden even with Operation Chaos giving him some votes. This is going to give the media their talking points hoping to slow Bernie big time on Super Tuesday. If Bernie is smart he will just talk up wanting to get a good 2nd place finish in SC.

    Well thinking this is almost a 100% lock for what is going to happen I now see this being a Bernie - Biden race mostly after ST with Bloomberg falling out after ST sometime not to hurt Biden after then. I see Bernie still going into the convention with the most delegates from the voters but not enough to lock things up. We might see some really crazy stuff with that scenario.

    Latest RCP average has Biden +3 points over Sanders in SC. And that's not factoring in the momentum factor heading into Tuesday. I think Biden will eek out a win, but he's never won a primary or caucus in three different runs.

    Don't believe that nonsense in the polls. The word was just put out to the black leaders there to have people vote Biden. I think its more likely to be over 10% than under 10% for the Biden win.

    Actually its 5.4% and the one poll that includes the day of the Clyburn endorsement has Bid by 15%.

    Yep, it just updated because of that PPP poll showing Biden up 15 points. PPP is a Democratic polling company. Shocked they would have Biden up double digits when he's in virtual free fall everywhere else you look. :rolleyes:

    So many Pubs and Trumpsters invested in the Dem caucuses and primaries. If Trump is a lock, why do any of you care?

    Does anybody else find it vaguely racist that the black voters in South Carolina are supposed to vote how one man tells them too?

    I know the preachers etc. need to stand up to Clyburn and tell him they will just say to vote how you want to with no input from them.

    It's going to play out like the Civil War: North vs. South. Bernie takes the northern states, and Biden takes the southern states. Warren takes the native American states. Buttigieg burns down Atlanta. Klobuchar charges up Cemetery Ridge in Gettysburg, and is driven back by Hillary's artillery. Bloomberg surrenders at Appomattox Court House.

    I just don't want the crooked establishment ripping Bernie off. They tried to do it to Trump but the Reps have more winner take all states which prevented them from pulling it off. I don't agree with all of Bernie's views but he seems to be authentic.

    The Republican primary was a shit show and eventually elected an actual TV clown. A legit TV clown. Now suddenly the process looks chaotic to you guys?

    I suspect the more moderate liberals start supporting remaining candidates and as others drop out. Bernie gets the most votes but loses since he represents a minority of views. Republicans cry a river of “Bernie gets screwed”. You’re as transparent as you are simple guys.

    I find it hard to believe that you or any pubs care about bernie getting jobbed by the so called establishment. Just more Fox talking points.

    The best thing that can happen for Democrats right now is for Biden to drop out... So all of the moderate votes after SC go to Bloomberg...

    If Biden wins South Carolina, he believes he has a shot... he splits the moderate votes with Bloomberg, and Bernie Sanders likely wins the nomination...

    Democrats lose because it likely grants Trump a second term

    Republicans lose, at least in the short-run, because you're risking handing the presidency to the most radical possibility... I don't like these kinds of risks...
