6 months? I don’t think Ted stopped bringing up Hillary until the primaries started in 2019 and he had new Democrats to bash. Certain of his most frequent commenters will still drop long anti-Hillary rants at every possible opportunity, as you may have noticed.
There were a bunch of primary elections. Maybe you heard about them. The purpose of the primaries is to select the candidate who’s most popular with Democratic voters, who then becomes the candidate in the general election.
Biden won the primaries by a significant margin. He has the delegates. He’s going to be the candidate, unless he dies or drops out in the next couple of months. (In which case there would be chaos.)
If the DNC selected a new candidate who had never even run in the primary, they’d immediately lose all credibility, and the new candidate would lose the election by a tremendous margin. People need to stop having this fantasy of a perfect new candidate appearing from nowhere and winning the election. It’s not going to happen.
When did the Biden campaign say they didn’t want to debate Trump? All I can find is news stories from last week with headlines like “Biden ready to debate Trump — on Zoom if necessary”
I guess there’s no reason your attacks have to be based in reality. As long as you can make up some way to smear Biden and help Trump get re-elected, you’re doing your job.
The other candidates have a few percent of delegates between them. The rest of the primaries will give nearly 100% of their delegates to Biden, unless the primaries are canceled, in which case he gets 100%. And if for some reason all the delegates get to choose on their own, they’ll choose Biden, who’s overwhelmingly popular among the kind of people who become Democratic delegates.
If you think Biden won’t get the Democratic nomination, you’re delusional.
“At the convention, it is highly unlikely that either Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders will have more than 50% of the delegates needed to win on the first ballot.”
Huh? Bernie dropped out. Biden is the only candidate left. He’s going to get 100% of the delegates for states that haven’t yet. And Bernie will probably release his delegates to vote for Biden as well.
I think you mean the “Unicornshoe Effect”.
“Rall too must join in the effort to defeat Trump.”
Bernie won New Hampshire, despite those evil corporations and their rigged voting machines.
Win or lose, it’s always a conspiracy.
Bernie led in most (but not all) polls of Iowa. Polls measure first-round votes, which aren’t the same as delegates, and even the best poll is inherently imperfect. Bernie ended up with a very slight lead in first-round votes, as predicted by the polls. Delegates have a more complex calculation, and Bernie came in second in the delegate count.
Do you really think there’s no possible explanation, besides a conspiracy?
This happened with Romney, and to a lesser extent McCain. Hardcore conservatives thought they were too moderate and complained about them constantly, but couldn’t prevent them from winning the primaries.
Anti-Trump Republicans also made some effort to change the delegate rules in 2016, though they didn’t get very far.
