If a state has 20 electoral votes, and candidate 1 gets 75% and candidate 2 gets 25%, then candidate 1 gets 15 electoral votes and candidate 2 gets 5 electoral votes.

 

Basically, getting rid of the winner-takes-all-system

If you're going to allocate EC votes proportionally you might as well just get rid of the electoral college then. Seems cumbersome to do it this way because you would still end up with weird mathematical situations like we currently do.

Unionizing campaigns, discussions of eliminating the Electoral College and expanding the Supreme Court.

Not one Bernie interview or rally has anything negative about the candidates so I guess Sirota is doing his job just well.

 

And of course the media is running with this. Because when Bernie and progressives attack the centrists/establishment/neoliberal voting record, we'll get labelled as "divisive".

Missing the point or deflecting on purpose?

Based on which particular policy of his, are you so confident about that?

Everyone experiences an announcement bump. Biden is the biggest name of anyone and once he's running more people will decide he's their candidate. He isn't my #1 choice, but he will lead pretty much all polls pretty comfortably going into June

I hope Bernie has not entered this race thinking he can get away with not releasing his tax returns... That's a no no.

What point am I missing?

 

The media trying to paint Bernie at "negative" as if he was in 2016 and will be this time. Calling out the tragic voting records of the establishments is not divisive. THEY ARE.

 

Bernie is not going to run a negative ad campaign. But if you don't think he's going to call out Beto for taking fossil fuel contributions then you're foolishly mistaken. That's a winning strategy not a losing one. :skull:

Biden will get a 2%-5% boost, and that's it. He's gonna be attacked and make dumb comments about Democrats every other week. And then he'll completely butcher the debates and rallies. He has his base, but he's a terrible campaigner.

I'm still waiting to see Kamala, Beto and the others!

Lol at CNN trying to spin Kamala's gain. Last poll was in December (when the race hadn't started yet). Her being at 10%-11% since her launch means she hasn't truly gained at all since she announced 2 months ago in January. :)

That 5% boost is a lot when you're already up in almost every poll :lmao: 

 

When are we going to see Bernie's tax returns? He said "soon" over a month ago.
