Tulsi is gonna hurt Bernie

In a tight primary, if it ends up being tight, leading candidates can use all the support they can get.

Tulsi Gabbard will not get many votes, but she could get enough votes to cost Bernie a win in New Hampshire, where she pulled at 6% in a Quinnipiac poll released yesterday.

Her base is a mixture of Trump lovers and Independents who think the Democratic party is just as evil as the Republican party.
Many of these voters would vote for Bernie Sanders in the absence of Tulsi. The last candidate they would vote for is Joe Biden.

I think it's safe to say that the Biden team wants Nina Turner and Bernie Sanders to continue to praise Ms. Gabbard on Twitter.

Thanks, Tulsi (Warren and Gabbard tied among "independent" voters in New Hampshire at 10%)

Republicans and Independents can vote in the New Hampshire Democratic primary as "undeclared", which is what "independent" means in this Quinnipiac poll.

Among Democrats, Warren leads Gabbard 24-1%.

Ironically, Gabbard is helping Joe.Biden by taking these voters away from Sanders and Warren.

Will Biden go after Sanders for his support for the Bolivian President who just resigned?

The president of Bolivia just stepped down after widespread allegations of electoral fraud. Do you guys think Bernie Sanders' support for this politician be used against him?

Finally, Tulsi leads all other Democratic candidates in a poll question

YouGov asked if there are any candidates that you would be disappointed if he or she won the nomination.

Gabbard leads with 33% disappointed if she won.

This is remarkable because Tulsi still lags major candidates in name recognition, yet Democrats were still able to recognize the danger of picking her.
