I only see pro Biden threads in the general political page.

Pretty impressive :

Here's their Bernie Sanders page:

It's all about voting trump out. I do think it's different this time.

and they'll get more progressive work done from inside the castle than out.

Getting Repubs and/or Trump elected won't further their agenda at all. At least Dems will talk to them about what they want done, and in many cases will work with them in compormise fashion. Trump and the Repubs will just shut them down.

34. I am going to try to early vote. I already asked for a ballot in Ohio but they won't be send until

third...same day early voting starts...so with the mailing situation I am a bit worried. I think I have to bring it to the early voting place if that doesn't work, I will drop it off in the main drop box. I think most Sanders supporters are voting Biden and were all along..but some were not on board so AOC is doing a great job according to my daughter. It isn't only Sanders...some were progressives supporting other candidates...don't know which ones...If I had to guess maybe Warren.

and I could see that the Green Party and Nader and those propping it up were frauds then. And those who supported it didn't change.

33. AOC is Smart and Knows Biden Will No Doubt Win With or Without Any Sanders Hold-Outs

It doesn't help their cause for Biden to win big and they not be a part of the coalition supporting him. I'm glad Biden has such broad support among demographics Dems usually struggle with like post 65 Seniors. It saves him from being held hostage to any wing of the party still wanting him to "earn their vote". Sorry to sound dismissive of these folks who think not voting or voting for the Green party is anything but ridiculous given what we are facing with Trump and the GOP but I do.

Bernie supporter anti-Biden stuff. Biden was not my first choice, but he is clearly absolutely definitely the only choice at this point. If anyone tells me that they can't see supporting Biden because they preferred Bernie, I would first wonder if they are really US citizens. We know that we have no choice. Biden must be elected. He is a truly decent man and if he isn't as progressive as we would like, he may be persuaded. I'll take that. For now.
