The Republicans are going to paint every Democrat candidate as a wild out of control socialist. Pete, Amy, Warren, doesn't matter.  They ran with that against Obama for 8 years and he started every ne

Nate Silver just tweeted that this is shaping up to be an awfully nice night for Bernie. He didn't say why, but I'm guessing it's because the two moderates gaining momentum here are the two with zero support from minority voters. 

Yep - there's still some big question marks about Pete and Amy with minorities.  I'm happy though because my top 3 candidates are Bernie, Pete and Amy.  Time for Steyer, Bennett and Gabbard to follow Yang out the door.

Yep, and Warren appears to be toast.  She's under 10% and her home state borders NH.

Moderates like Amy, Mayor Pete, Biden and Bloomberg will continue to split that vote. Bernie's more progressive opponent Warren is having a very bad night.

Nobody is going to be pulling away with 5 major candidates still.

Yeah but if things continue in this route, none of the Steyer, Biden, Yang, etc... people are going to Bernie.  I’m not totally sure he’d sweep the Warren people considering their exchange after the debate a few weeks back.

According to today's Morning Consult national poll, a plurality of Biden supporters list Bernie as their second choice.

I'm not sure what Steyer fans are looking for but I could see Yang supporters going to Bernie, especially if it's younger people.  I get the impression that Biden supporters will vote for whoever the DNC pushes.

Totally agree. I said last week I felt that whole private convo thing was a final straw and a permanent schism between those two bases. Some will go back, but it will be significantly fewer than if it hadn't happened.

This kind of thing is why you really can't just add up the "progressive" numbers and the "moderate" voters and compare them when there are so many people. Too hard to predict how things change as the choices disappear.

Maybe so.  DNC will push a moderate. They want to win and they’re not going to hitch their wagon to a guy who’s nearly 80 and just had a heart attack.

The thing Bernie should be concerned about is that Warren’s bad night isn’t resulting in a bigger lead for him. Them only combining for 40% in a neighboring state isn’t great.

There goes Yang and my grand a month. 

I do hope the guy sticks in the game and advocates for something. He’ll more likely go make a boatload of money somewhere doing smart stuff. 

I'd absolutely find him a role in my admin.

This was the error establishment Republicans made about the "anti-Trump" vote in the 2016 primaries.

I think that's why there were folks who wanted to vote for Bernie but then voted for Trump.  They just showed the non-college degree white voting and it went heavily for Bernie - I think Bernie and Trump appeal to similar people - ones who hate politicians and see them all as weasels.  They just want something different.

Kornacki just showed exit poll data stating 51% of those who said they were undecided last week went Pete or Amy. Bernie only got 16. The undecided pool reportedly represented half of the vote.

Makes sense. Sanders is a pretty known quantity at this point, the other two have been relatively obscure. Someone undecided at this point had already figured out Bernie wasn't their first choice, but not necessarily who their first choice was.

And that's also why I think it may be a mistake for the GOP to push Bernie - I could see folks being just as surprised about President Sanders as folks were about waking up to a President Trump.

One of the CNN folks pointed out that if you just listed the things Bernie has going for him that if it were any other candidate the DNC would declare the race over.  Does incredible with young people, popular with minorities and has an unbelievable ground game and small donors.

Going WAY out on a limb here and predicting the other candidates will be singing Yangs praises tonight.

From Mayor Pete:

.

@AndrewYang  started out unknown, but went on to make a big impact with his campaign built on preparing for America’s future. Andrew, we’ll miss you and the #YangGang on the trail, but I can’t wait to work together to help prepare America for the challenges ahead.

I can sort of understand dropping out at this point if you were low single digits, but otherwise I'd be trying to hang on through super Tuesday at least. I don't think any of these early primaries build a solid narrative (unless someone somehow sweeps).

Begging for an endorsement.

Warren almost sounds like she's dropping out.  She's giving the unity speech.

From Warren's speech...may be a potential harbinger of a future endorsement.

“Amy and I are the only candidates in this race who are not either billionaires or supported by Super PACs,” Warren said of she and Klobuchar.

I said before but if Warren drops out and Bloomberg swoops in then that's a scenario that is really good for Bernie.  If it gets to the convention and Bernie has like 35% of the delegates and Pete, Amy and Bloomberg are at like 20% each it may be party suicide for Bernie to not get the nomination.  Hopefully more nominees follow Warren's lead and push for unity.
