Bernie will be fine in Texas. I now think he'll win.

I am very curious how the black vote goes (both turnout and %) in South Carolina. Thats the turning point if there is one. :noclue:

If he actually does acheive 1,991 delegates before convention, the DNC is finished, or will have to burn the place down..... :flip:

I do admit I am all over the place. But I do feel pretty strongly there is a consistent/workable theme.

Yeah, nothings changed.
1991 "pledged" prior to convention doesnt mean automatic nomination..... :noclue:
Half of 3,979 is 1,989.5. Democratic National Committee officials say that on the first ballot, a candidate must win one delegate more than that, or 1,990.5, which is rounded up to reach the magic number: 1,991. (If a candidate won 1,990 pledged delegates on the first ballot, D.N.C. officials say, that would not be sufficient.)

So, in summary, the quickest and least complicated way to win the nomination is for a candidate to secure 1,991 pledged delegates on the first ballot at the Democratic National Convention in July.
Just best practices...
Wait for Milwaukee, then tell me I'm wrong.:wink:

Maybe I need to be more blunt.... :lolol:

This is Biden's third time running for President, and he has never won ONE primary/caucus.

A lot can happen between now and the convention. I really don't think Bernie will get the needed delegates or get the nomination at the convention.

Do you say that because you think his policies/campaigning is bad, or a critical mass of Democrats in the big states just aren't there to support him?

Just curious. :wave:

Add up the number of people who support Biden, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, and Bloomberg. When some of these people start dropping out, I don't think their supporters are going to go over to Bernie's camp.

Yeah, I dont know the math on 1991. Like Bernie could get CA TX FL and various other "progressive" states and still not get there? :noclue:

Well, I never said he WILL get 1991. Just he will be really close with Warren delegates AND delegates who just want to join a formidable candidate.

I think Bernie has significant momentum in the race towards the nod right now. Bloomy and Biden in SC could chill the momentum, but even there I think Bernie will show well. He will absorb all of Warren's people once she's gone, and the never trumpers from the other camps. Many of the moderates are looking at '16 and saying....'look where moderation has gotten us'.
