Caucus debacle aside, the change in discourse on who can win should be why we change the order.

The Candidate w/ 48~50% AA support nationwide finished fourth in a predominately white caucus and everyone is talking about how his campaign is on life support. Make it make sense.

People will fight tooth and nail to defend this because it may boost their candidate, but how can we as a party expect the vote of a crucial voting block if we winnow their choices before they even have input?

A state like Illinois should be the first primary.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Over estimated several times!

Looking strictly at the numbers and leaving the hype out if anyone’s campaign is life support it’s Sanders.

1.Out of 57 states and territories sanders is predicted to win 15, Biden predicted to win 42.
2.as you mentioned his polling among AA is dismal. No dem nominee or candidate for the GE has ever won without this most important voting block
3. Sanders has yet to lead in any ntl poll,since Biden entered the race

He isn’t going to be the nominee
