14. He's been very vocal about getting his supporters on board

People always focus on what Nina Turner or Briahn Joy Gray get up to, but never acknowledge that Bernie has been working hard all summer to exhort his former supporters to get on the Biden train. He endorsed Biden immediately upon leaving the race.

Sanders loathes Trump and will do everything possible to see him defeated. I wish people would stop using the likes of Turner to take shots at him. (not saying you're doing that here, but I see it constantly on this board).

Sanders ended his 2020 presidential campaign and cleared the field for Biden in April rather than fight to the bitter end as many supporters wanted. The Vermont senator is ordering his delegates to the Democratic convention to avoid criticizing Biden. Top lieutenants have set up a super PAC to back the former vice president. And Sanders allies have teamed up with Bidenís on task forces to develop the party platform.


https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-05-25/bernie-sanders-new-role-team-player-helping-biden

And that's from late May. He's been doing a lot since.

The assholes on Twitter are loud and obnoxious. You know, like everyone else . . . on Twitter. But they're a minority.

I lot of my social circle are die hard Sanders supporters (tch, Bay Area, eh?). They're not thrilled with Biden, don't seem energized by Harris so far. But they're all voting for Biden. It isn't even a question with them.

56. Yes, Give it a Rest Please!

Yes, give it a rest please! Kicking Sanders supporters around is just not productive for Democrats. I am offended that I am still bashed on this site for supporting Sanders. I wanted Health Care for All like they have in Europe. I grew up with a diabetic mother way before we had employer health care. We worried all the time about paying for her health care. I lived in Europe and did not pay a penny for some serious surgeries and health care over a tough year. We gave the legal limit to Sanders. Now we are Biden supporters. So just stop the bashing please. It is not helping Biden and divides the party. Let the die hard talk, they are just wrong headed. Donít give them any more oxygen by keeping this going.

From your keyboard to god's fax machine!! rescind the tax cut for the rich and there will be PLENTY of money to help people thru this virus stuff.. then Then THEN increase the taxes on the highest 1 % to help pay for the rest of the things we need to help this country. YMMV

as soon as you get your ballot, fill it out and drop off at a county elections office or drop box.

if your state has early voting but not vote by mail, get out there early to vote and then help others vote all the way til polls close on election day

45. that's a really dodgy take, designed to shit-stir, m8

he is not trying to have the UAW en toto nominate him

Bob King retired as UAW president in 2014

and all the nominees with delegates will be nominated

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-sanders-uaw/uaw-president-sanders-divided-over-convention-event-idUSKCN25700H

Although Bidenís delegate numbers mean his nomination is a formality, other primary candidates are still expected to be introduced to the audience as nominees as part of the pageantry of the week-long event.

57. Yes, but thank goodness he's joined our side to stop the Republicans.

And, boy, do I really mean that.

I've never known what goes on in his mind, unlikely to be remorse guessing from others, but the slaughter of the Democratic Party in 2016 may have caused him to realize that the RW revolution was far, far, FAR advanced beyond LW magical thinking. And that the only place for his kind of leader in their kind of brave new world would be prison.
