His Presidential campaign never stopped. His multiple year campaigning advantage will be difficult to overcome.

Eight person field and Sanders walks away with it. Three person field and he is out early. The field will be eight or more people, in my opinion.

22. Yes, but those laws are unconstitutional.

In U.S. Term Limits v. Thornton (1995) the Supreme Court said the states could not add requirements for ballot access. The income tax laws will be tosses as soon as a qualified candidate challenges them.

...by the parties and/or legislatures in each state.

That's why we have different types of primaries (open, closed, semi-closed) and caucuses.

85. You may be right.

Constitutional experts are divided. But even Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed the bill in CA. The state's lawyers said it was unconstitutional. Brown said it would lead to no end of requirements for health records and everything else to get on the ballot.

86. That was a state law, and probably violated the state constitution (not familiar with that)...

...on the other hand, I'm sure the state party committees or even the national committees can impose restrictions on who can be their nominee in primaries or ultimately the general election. They're not prohibiting any candidates from running, just not running under their name.

88. I don't think Thornton applies to this

States are permitted to set rules for ballot access, such as requiring a candidate be a resident/eligible to vote in the state, etc. I believe that requiring a candidate to release tax returns falls into those categories and is not a "qualification" as addressed in Thornton.

99. "Finding" them consisted of searching on YouTube for "TYT Hillary emails"

Hell. it took longer to copy&paste them to DU than to find them.

I mean, jeez, it's one thing to disagree. But to deny? When it's so frikkin easy to find?

I supported TYT for a while because we really do need a real liberal media, one that engages people and provides a day-to-day inoculation against RW propaganda that warp perspectives like so much background radiation.

And there are real reasons to have beefs with the Clintons.

But there are big differences between that and having your head up your ass, and Cenk was on the wrong side of that equation. Did he fall for anti-Hillary Horseshit? "Of Coooooooouuuuuuurrrrrrse"

Too many betrayed Her & this country, by believing in the compromised propaganda of our Media, before believing in the knowledge of a global Leader, who stood before Her country with warnings of what was to come with a man like Donald Trump & Vladimer Putin.

Millions chose Her for this very reason.
They knew Her & believed in Her abilities to govern and turned their backs to the propaganda of the compromised Media.

Millions put their complete faith in Her hands because they knew Her worth to the world.

Cenk and all the low-post-count bots and so-called democratic socialists can crow all they want about Sanders being bound to win but he has no chance as a third party candidate.

All he would accomplish is as a spoiler aiding trump's re-election.

And the DNC would face wholesale revolt if they allow him in to divide the party again, so welcome to Jill Stein, third party territory, Bernie.

73. Let me point out that by the numbers HILLARY WON. It took TREASON and...

...and new Jim Crow laws, Cambridge Analytica and all manner of voter suppression tactics, and she still got 3 million more votes than Trump.

The Democratic message resonated with more people than Trump. Hillary's message resonated with more people than Trump's.

And just one question for you and Cenk, Raysawesome34: if Bernie decides to run for potus again, which party is he going to run in? He's not a Democrat, and after his behavior last time, he surely is never going to get the backing of the Democratic Party apparatus again.

Last time around he lost in the primaries -- Hillary got the nom fair and square. He lost, she won. And if it had not been for now-verified treason, she'd be in the White House now.

43. Most so-called "independents" are highly partisan.

See here: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100210843333

Sanders doesn't have the support of the Democratic Party base. That's why the 2016 race was essentially over by the 2nd week of March (Cenk continued to insist long after that that Sanders would win the primary, which goes to show he's pretty clueless). If it weren't for caucuses, the final delegate count would have been even more lopsided.

Caucuses are disenfranchising (many aren't able to or inclined to take part in a long and public caucus process), which is why many states are finally doing away with caucuses in favor of primaries. Look at the states that held both a caucus and a primary, such as Washington. The level of turnout *and* the result was much different between the two, even though the primary results - in each instance - were essentially meaningless (in that no delegates were awarded). Higher turnout and greater diversity is bad news for Sanders.

To say Sanders has a chance at winning the 2020 nomination is questionable. To say he's certain to win the 2020 nomination is pure lunacy.

Tad's trail goes through Paul Manafort & straight to Putin.

Glad Mueller is handing us a reason to be running in the oppisite direction of Bernie Sanders.

Wtf more does one need to see.

TAD DEViNE STILL works for Sanders, even with all that's been given us by Mueller.

I cannot wait for the day Mueller indicts the complicit.
Let the chips fall....then it will all be known and over & the Democratic Party, the Party of human rights for all citizens, will once again be standing ready to put the fractured Nation back together & make it whole & functioning.

The true Democrats will always remain while the usurpers will be made known.

116. I agree. He has a tough climb.

He may win the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire, but unless he eliminates Harris during that time, his chances deminishes. Once the race goes to Nevada and the South, Harris gains an enormous advantage. And with California moving up it's primary, she could virtually close the door on him with a big win there.

55. Sanders will only win some white states

that resemble the VT demographic, like he did last time. (And there will be less or perhaps no caucuses.. even many of the states he won he actuallly would've lost if faced a primary instead, which has far greater turnout.)

He was destroyed with PoC and metro areas, which are much more the base of the modern Dem party that heartland populists. Hillary won almost every metro area and almost every diverse state across the country.

He also isn't winning any of the southern states that Hillary utterly destroyed him in it, where the Dem constituency is heavily black. Recall Bernie dissed those voters, calling them conservative, also.

Also, this time Sanders isn't coming out nowhere... he's a known quantity and many rank-and-file Democratic voters.. ie Clinton/Obama Dems.. can't stand Sanders and blame him for damaging Hillary etc, view him as a Nader.

And the young'uns usually want something new.. Sanders is old news by now. He won't get the kidz like last time and millennials are moving into middle aged.. will want more establishment/centrist Dems.

Then you're going to have new faces like Booker, Harris and perhaps Castro running... centrist types who can reboot the Obama coalition.

Stir it all together and Sanders will get far less votes than he did last time, when it was a one on one with Hillary, who played 'prevent defense' and didn't really fight him - knowing she would later have to unite the party.

The media also wanted a "horserace, not a coronation" and built Bernie up into something much bigger than he was... race was mathematicallly over by early March. Sanders hung around ironically to try to flip superdelegates and there were some Berners who were hoping Hillary would be indicted and were waiting for Comey to release his findings (Comey came out with his grandstanding speech in June, iirc), had visions of H in an orange jumpsuit with Bernie rising victoriously to assume the nomination lol.

I think if Booker stays out of the race and Harris gets in, if Bernie does not finish off Harris in Iowa and New Hampshire, he can't win the nomination because the rest of the way heavily favors Harris. If Harris stays close to him in Iowa and New Hampshire or defeat him in one or both of them. he is done period.

87. Bernie had his shot in 2016

He'll get a lot of support from TYT and others in 2020 but I don't think it will be on the same level as 2016. Voters will be looking a new fresh face to represent the party. That's just the way it usually goes. All it takes is for someone like Elizabeth Warren or Sherrod Brown to throw their hats in the ring.

What TYT conveniently ignores about Biden is that he's someone who still carries an enormous of clout in the party. Yes, he's had 2 failed Presidential runs though I doubt Bernie would've fared much better if he ran in 1988 and 2008. But he was Vice-President to a popular President for 8 years and unlike Bernie he has a great personal story to tell. He's persevered through deep family tragedies in his life and that resonates with a lot of people. Having said that, I will be surprised if he runs but TYT in my opinion are being incredibly naive by dismissing his chances if he became a 2020 candidate.
