Sanders has a history of disparaging Dems

If a Democratic Socialist, with a history of Marxist and socialist fawning, gets our nomination he will be defeated decisively in the GE. He's almost 80, he will be gone but leave a party, he was never loyal to, in shambles going forward. We will be Democratic socialists for numerous election cycles. We will be a coastal party. We can blame ourselves for being pushed around by Bernie Sanders- a career politician.

Gallop and Socialists

The survey, conducted from Jan. 16-29 among 1,033 adults, found 53 percent said that they would not vote for their party nominee if they were a, "generally well-qualified person for president who happened to be socialist."

Folks, the Sanders GE ad write themselves

Bernie Sanders campaigned for the Socialist Workers Party in the 1980 and 1984 presidential campaigns and was investigated by the FBI for his ties to the Marxist group. While Democrats campaigned for President Jimmy Carter in 1980 and Walter Mondale in 1984, Sanders spent the Reagan era supporting fringe Marxists with no chance of reaching the White House. In 1980, Sanders "proudly endorsed and supported" Andrew Pulley, the SWP party's presidential candidate. Sanders was one of three electors for Pulley on the Vermont ballot, stating in a press release: "I fully support the SWP's continued defense of the Cuban revolution." A flier in Sanders' archives shows that he was a featured speaker at the 1982 SWP "Campaign Kick-Off Rally" in Boston for the party's candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and Congress. Then there us the famous bread line quote,----- "It’s funny; sometimes American journalists talk about how bad a country is, that people are lining up for food. That is a good thing. In other countries, people don’t line up for food: the rich get the food and the poor starve to death.”

Sanders proposals wouldn't pass a Democrat led Congress

Even if Sanders became President, and he won't, the overwhelming majority of his plans couldn't even pass through a Democrat led Congress. He, and he wouldn't, would have to make serious compromise.

My conversation with my DNC operative in Florida

this morning was somber. but if you want to nominate a Democratic socialist as the head of the Democratic party you will lose the WH and lose House seats. Middle America and the Southeast will not elect a Democratic Socialist. Period. End of conversation. It's why moderates won here in 18 and 19 and Sanders backed candidates didn't. You think America is represebtive of the coasts. I'll bet my 25 years working local and state campaigns from FL to GA to TN that Trump will beat Sanders in historic fashion.

Party meeting rural town #2

Rural county 30 min outside of Nashville. We elected some young 20 something officers tonight. 85 people showed up. Had a speaker from Atlanta, GA. Biden is popular here. Consensus is Sanders can't win. Mayor Pete had good amount of support. The gentleman from Atlanta thinks GA might be in play. It will be hard. He said Sanders absolutely would not win GA, Biden was best shot. Bloomberg wasn't brought up. Not much enthusiasm for any candidate but a lot of enthusiasm to beat Trump. Pete has an unusual amount of support given Demographics here.... until next time

A valid Bill Kristol tweet

Dear Democrats🙋‍♂️,
Just spitballing here. Maybe take a pass on the 78-year olds—a billionaire with NDAs, a socialist, and an ex-VP who’s lost a step? And maybe not the 38-year old small-city mayor or the liberal Harvard prof? Maybe the Midwesterner who resembles Dem 2018 winners?

Bernie endorsed and campaigned for an AZ

governor that lost by 20pts. A moderate AZ candidate won her Senate race by 2points. Just an idea of the non coat tails a Democratic Socialist will have in states we need in 2020.

New Quinnipiac state poll released minutes ago

Trump up by 7-11 points agianst all D's in Wisconsin. All D's up in PA by a few but Biden does best. All D's up 3-5 in Michigan. Nate Cohn thinks WI may not be competitive anymore

"The best known socialist in America"

Is a millionaire with 3 houses" . My favorite quote of The night. Add the fact that our presumptive nominee hasn't ever had a career outside of government- moderates should hammer this home. We need a Democrat representing our party. Not a man that has disparaged us for years. Pete. Biden. Amy. Mike. Someone carry they touch please before Trump gets another 4 years.
