2. I guess we will see

 

Everyone in the media was claiming Biden was running away with the primaries.... reality would prove otherwise

3. I kept hearing he would do well in diverse states and that's why Iowa and NH didn't mean much.

4. If anyone else wants to win this,

 

then several of the candidates need to drop out and throw their support behind a unity candidate. My choice would be Warren or Biden. If not, Sanders is going to win this thing.

6. It's not a foot race. It's a tug-of-war.

 

In the end, the majority of voters will have elected a majority of center/left pledged delegates. The center/left candidates will then pool their delegates to give the majority to one of their group. The majority of pledged delegates will vote for that candidate in the first ballot.

7. He's running against five more moderate candidates.

 

When people start dropping his poll numbers may change as the 'middle' will likely support an alternative candidate. I hope we are all prepared for that possibility.

8. That would be true if

 

You assume everyone would support any of the moderates. Bottom line, sanders has the highest percentage of support and that cannot be ignored. 10% for Amy and 10% for Pete doesnt equal 20% for one of them

9. I don't assume that.

 

But it's possible.

You left out Biden and Warren.
