15. TBH, I have zero clue how far Sanders will push things, and his 2020 voters are vastly more

 

radical, non Democrat Party-friendly (millions have never even been members), and far more burn it all down-types than his 2016 voters were.

They are far more likely to do crazy shit now than before. I can easily see them passing up the defection rate of Clinton's primary voters in 2008 (around 24 to 25% voted McCain, 5% did not vote.) I think if Bernie does things badly, and then Obama were to get prematurely involved, you could see a 35% or even 40% defection rate (although not so many straight to Trump, that will stay around the 10 to 12% range like in 2016, I think.) I think a shedload will either not vote or will go 3rd party if Bernie does really make a huge effort to prevent that.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
