Bernie had 25 undivided minutes at DNC. When does his surge begin?

I mean Bernie supporters keep insisting that all it takes is for him to get out his views at the debates and by popular acclamation he will be the nominee.

Well he got an undivided 25 minutes, far more than he will get at any one debate. So when does his surge begin?

17. NO not true! go to RCP, print out the graph of 2 years polling hold it to a mirror

at an angle being sure it is held with the top edge directly to the mirror with the bottom edge sticking out

Look at the reflection. This is the SECRET message of the democratic primary, and it clearly shows the surge.

Remember what is down is -really- up.

39. Hillary has no surge. She's more like The Titanic.

 

The unsinkable, the inevitable.

After scraping by the iceberg, the extent of the damage was not immediately evident, and all seemed well enough.

Getting scared, are we?

I don't get the willful ignoring of the fact that the Bern is a grassroots force that is against the same old same old.

Guess is that people who are for more of the same are afraid of what the Bern brings: Hope for real Change!

4. A candidate has to sell their policies and convince voters to vote for them, in the case of

primaries it is the votes for the delegates to go to the convention to vote for the candidate. Without those delegates a person will not become the nominee. It is not a coronation for anyone.

Some hardcore Clinton supporters have been dismissing every other candidate since before the race even began. Now that one is posing a serious threat for the nomination they've resorted to pompous sarcasm or refusing to see the whole picture.

Like citing polls that show Clinton with a 20 point lead without considering the trend which shows that lead shrinking rapidly. It's bordering on denial.

19. Down from a 50 point lead. It used to 'she's 40 points ahead' then 'she's 30 points ahead' and now

it's 'she's leading by 20 points'.

I don't know why people think that other people are not paying attention to all this and they know that going from 40 to 20 points ahead in such a short time is a very bad sign for a candidate, especially when the other candidate continues to trend up wards with still half the country not knowing who he is.

He won't surge with them. He is running against their establishment candidate.

The debates will be seen by people not paying attention to the campaigns yet. A very different audience.


But we all know when the surge began. You may remember it because it was when "Hillary's numbers are not falling!!" threads were all the rage. Or you can see it here.

18. Surge on Bernie.

I think that many or most attendees at the DNC mtg are pretty much hard-wired party loyalists with fairly durable status quo attitudes and expectations. But I suspect a fair percentage who actually heard Senator Sanders' message and recognize his surging acceptance amongst the progressive base will agree with him on some level also. The surge within the party machine may be much more protracted and subtle at first than the obvious surge happening in the electorate at large or the massive crowds attending Bernie's rallys. But I believe there are internal changes taking place inside the Democratic Party due to his candidacy which will become more evident in time.

Surely few can argue the need for breaking the corporate and oligarchic influence over our politicians in both parties. And both parties are clearly seeing the surging rejection of status quo candidates by voters all over this country. This becomes clearer to all concerned with each new poll, even if the party machinists are the last to realize it.

Surge on Bernie.

How did that one go again?

He's still surging, and Clinton's still dropping. Her support was always very soft. Bernie's support is solid - 98% are because they like him and support his ideas and policies. 2% is because of the ABC (Anyone but Clinton) status.

It ain't over - not by a long shot, and Bernie's far better than Obama - because he is the REAL deal, not some third way bootlicker.

30. LOL!

I think a debate where millions will watch is a bit more important than a party meeting which maybe had thousands of viewers on C-SPAN.

I think we've seen the surge in states where he's become known. He's leading New Hampshire, and closing the gap fast in Iowa. Obviously it will be harder when the states are larger and Hillary Clinton can saturate the airwaves with ads, but the trend is definitely going towards Sanders. And for people who say, "oh, Sanders voters would go to Biden", only 96% of Sanders voters in Iowa are with him because of policy, and only 3 % say it's a vote against Clinton.

But I suspect serious responses wasn't your motivation behind this hit and run turd.

Pretty good chance that Hillary is going to lose Iowa and NH, unless she can reverse the current trend.

Losing the first two contests will hurt. That never looks good for a coronation.

She's always the undisputed front runner. Then and now. How did that work out for her in 2008? Cause I think it's going to be the same now. Even if she wins the democratic nomination she won't win the GE.

34. Here's your surge --> he's closing the gap in Iowa, now 7 pts down.

 



New polling from Iowa out today:

Liberal revolutionary Bernie Sanders, riding an updraft of insurgent passion in Iowa, has closed to within 7 points of Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential race.

She's the first choice of 37 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers; he's the pick for 30 percent, according to a new Des Moines Register/Bloomberg Politics Iowa Poll.

But Clinton has lost a third of her supporters since May, a trajectory that if sustained puts her at risk of losing again in Iowa, the initial crucible in the presidential nominating contest.

This is the first time Clinton, the former secretary of state and longtime presumptive front-runner, has dropped below the 50 percent mark in four polls conducted by the Register and Bloomberg Politics this year.

Poll results include Vice President Joe Biden as a choice, although he has not yet decided whether to join the race. Biden captures 14 percent, five months from the first-in-the-nation vote Feb. 1. Even without Biden in the mix, Clinton falls below a majority, at 43 percent.
