Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Although I've openly supported Biden, I could happily vote for Bernie.

And thatís not just in the general election.

In fact, I may change to undecided. I genuinely like both of those 2 candidates. Iím torn.

What I dislike is reading such ugly posts between Biden and Bernie supporters. I actually feel drawn to support Biden when Bernie supporters attack Biden supporters. However, I feel the same as it relates to Biden supporters attacking Bernie voters.

I will be watching carefully the next month until the FL primaries. I have no problem with a democratic socialist winning. And I have no problem with Biden since he brings nostalgia of the Obama administration.

Peace yíall.

1. DUers can't wrap their heads around the fact that people like you are numerous outside of DU.

 

They have this naive belief that all non-Sanders supporters are anti-Sanders.

9. Yup. I want Warren, but I could still feel good voting for Sanders or Biden.

 

They all have their flaws. They all have their strengths. Buttigieg too. They are all WAY better than Trump. (Heck, they're all better than Bloomberg!)

For whatever reasons, a lot of people here hate Sanders (probably the most hated after Gabbard). While Sanders is not my favorite, I have to admit, it would be kinda fun to see all the heads explode around here if he won the nomination and the presidency.

4. My concern ... is not for myself, nor do I think it is for at least 75% of us here ...

 

There's a definite contingent that dislikes Bernie and outright doesn't want to vote for him, but the large majority of us are at least 'fine with it'.

It's the expected knock-on effects that have a good number of us DREADING his being our nominee.

I know, big insight here lol

5. I feel ya

 

I'm also considering voting for Bernie in FL depending how things are going in the primary at that point. If Biden is out or unviable I will vote for Bernie against Bloomberg. I don't want to see chaos at the convention.

6. I like Biden and Sanders and also would vote for either one . I am undecided between Warren

 

Biden and Sanders . I know others who are considering the same 3
I donít get why more donít post positive about one candidate if they are behind them instead of trash others or talk about hopelessness
I would like to see more posts of Biden on the road etc The ones posted have been good
I know warren has a lot on social media and a lot has been posted here .
Warren voters seem the least antagonistic here but maybe I am prejudiced
The sanders group here has been the best at posting rallies and positive info about him though imo
I am open to all
we have great candidates .
All are better than trump

8. If it comes down to Bloomberg vs Sanders.

 

Iíll vote Sanders. Bloomberg would suppress turnout more, IMO. But Iím still hoping Biden can pull this off.
