Fave candidates of MSNBC hosts

Not all MSNBC hosts have shown a bias toward a particular candidate, but these, I believe, have dropped clues:

Tweety - For Biden. He doesn't come out and say it, but often insists the Dem nominee must do well in PA to win. Plus, Chris vigorously defends Joe against every slam.

Chris Hayes - For Bernie. Over recent years, Hayes has earned the nickname "Bernie's Hannity," having the VT senator on so often for softball interviews that Sanders nearly earned co-star billing.

Rachel Maddow - For a woman candidate, in general. Maybe I'm wrong, but whether it's Amy, Kamala, or Elizabeth, Rachel just seems more supportive and animated when interviewing female candidates.

Donnie Deutch - For Biden. On his own show and others, he's repeatedly stated that Dems must nominate a candidate Trump can't paint as Socialist and who can win back Obama-turned-Trump voters and who can offer a return to normalcy.

Lawrence O'Donnell - For Warren. I say this mainly because of his reaction when Deutch claimed if Warren gets the nomination, Trump will win 48 states. Lawrence nearly bit Donnie's head off, saying it was a dumb claim based on no facts.

Joe & Mika - Months ago, both seemed smitten with Mayor Pete, but now only Mika while Joe seems to be window-shopping.

11. Rachel gave Amy a lot of airtime when she first got elected way back.

 

It's really the first place I saw her and thought she had potential to be President.

4. Rachel has been distinctly non-committal, but...

 

while those three women have been among her favorites as the OP said, I believe she has also shown great respect to Cory Booker, and, secondarily, Mayor Pete with whom she has shared on-air her similar life experiences - namely being out and having been a Rhodes scholar.

5. You left out Joy Reid

 

She has been the most obvious in showing her preference for Harris. As for O'Donnell I think he reacted that way to Deutch because it is such a ridiculous claim.

7. Eeks! How could I forget Joy?!?!

 

Yes, she's been a pretty strident Harris backer on the air.

Thanks for the catch.
