How does Sanders win Florida?

He's sympathetic to the Palestinians. Rep. Ilhan Omar is one of his campaign co-chairs. And, he's on record being favorable to Castro.

So, how does he win Florida?

6. Er, what?

 

“and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world and all of the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro. They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids healthcare, totally transformed the society.”

Good luck convincing people that that isn't praise.

4. Ditch the Socialist label

 

A lot of Floridians have bad memories of socialism in their countries of origin.

5. Trump would destroy Burnie in Florida.

 

He would also lose PA, Ohio, Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, North Carolina, Michigan, and possibly Minnesota.


Sanders would probably also save Susan Collins in Maine, and McSally in Arizona. Doug Jones would be toast. Same for both Georgia races.

8. Simple...he won't. Biden is the only one who can really be competitive in Florida and if folks

 

don't gravitate towards him then we'll see about Bloomberg.

9. I was favorable to Castro, I view this as a good quality in Bernie

 

The Cuban exile community is fucking insane and largely conservative anyways, so courting their vote has always been futile. Thankfully the older ones are dying off, the later generations are much more practical and progressive.
