Was extremely annoyed by folks including celebrities who blindly supported Clinton back in ‘15~’16 over Sanders, especially those who campaigned for her just because it was “time for a female president” for this country.

.

Favorite candidate so far. His policies and philosophy have always remained consistent.

Can’t say I’m personally very ecstatic about his ‘let us redistribute wealth’ motto, but can’t deny he is the voice of reason this country needs right now.

Also consistently a good man. A leader figure I could get on board with. I missed the days when a friend from another country said something about “…your President” and I wasn’t immediately embarrassed by it.

Hope he could generate as much excitement...Hope people could see the long-term benefit of his 'medicare for all' push. If he doesn't win the party primaries I'm DONE.

Hillary lost against Obama and then she wanted to try again. Bernie lost against Hillary and now he wants to try again. Isn't it time for somebody new?

Cool! But, I doubt he'll make it past the primaries. I don't see the Dems nominating a white man in 2020.

If Bernie or Tulsi make it past the primaries, I'll be happy. Even if Bernie doesn't make it, so many of the ideas he started pushing have made it into the discussion now, it seems like a matter of time before they get adopted.

Maybe, but equally maybe he doesn't want to be caught up in procedure debate nerd club and wants to concentrate on his more important message instead.

Love the Bern, but wish he’d team with Tulsi, they’d be killer, and complimentary, she’s strong on foreign policy, he’s strong on domestic policy.

Yeah, but no. I like some of what Bernie wants to accomplish, but he's still a career politician. And I don't like some of his votes.

In July 2017, he voted against sanctions on Iran, North Korea, and Russia.

Also, that same month, he did not vote the Medicare for All act.

In fact, he votes "Nay" more than he votes for something (which under Trump I can understand):

Bernie's been very tough on trade as well. He doesn't need Tulsi. In fact pairing up with Tulsi is a terrible idea considering Sanders' age. It will have the similar effect Palin/McCain had. We need someone solid enough that could be considered by the nation as a temp. President IF anything happens to Bernie. Tulsi is far from a seasoned candidate for VP.

If you want to have single-payer then he's the one you want to vote for, you're missing a lot of context if you think he's against it because he didn't vote on that July 2017 amendment.

I accept that possibly i'm misreading what you're saying and you don't want his health plan.

You know sanctions don't work? Iran deal was the only good thing Obama did.

No, he is a rock star. He will win big and with Tulsi.

That was only two examples that I pulled from the list of his votes. I didn't like that he didn't vote at all, but understand that there may have been extenuating circumstances when that came up for a vote. As I said, there are some things that he wants to accomplish, that I do like. But there are other things I don't. He's an 80 year old man, and in my mind, that already takes him out of the running for me, simply because I think we need someone younger, newer, and not such a career politician to take Trump down. He couldn't win against Hillary (which, I admit, they didn't give him a fair shake), but he won't win against Trump.

The other thing that I don't like Bernie, is that he has stated he is not a Democrat, and yet he insists on running for the presidency as a Democrat. To me, that is dishonest.

He caucuses with the Dems, even though is much more progressive. On another thread it says 42% of the people identify as Independents... if campaigned as an independent and all Indies supported him he could beat Trump who is sure to have a mostly Republican constituency indentifying @ 24% and while Dems are @ 32%. shrug

In his second run for the Democratic nod, he still hasn't addressed a real problem - he's not a Democrat.

In 2016, he ran for the Democratic nomination without changing his political affiliation. So, he wanted the Democraric mantle but he didn't want to become a Democrat.

The rank-and-file primary voters generally want someone who's actually affiliated with the party. His complaints about the nominaiton being rigged against him are not persuasive because it was perfectly reasonable for voters to be skeptical of a guy that didn't actually want to be one of them but wanted all the benefits associated with it.

He's trying to do the same thing in 2020, and now he is facing a host of *actual* Democrats with policies that are almost as progressive as his. He's got name recognition and a fundraising jump, but why would Democrats hand their nomination to an independent when they could give the nomination to one of their own with a similar platform?

Maybe he's able to leverage his base of independent voters but unless he convinces them to register as Democrats it won't resonate with Democratic primary voters.

Maybe he gets the nod, but he's gonna get hammered for not actually being a Democrat.

Yes, trump the conman, criminal, racist, and sexist. Amazing the privileges and passes he gets. I can’t wait until he is voted out of office. I wasn’t a Bernie supporter when he first ran, but yeah, he can definitely beat trump.
