Questions about the number of candidates

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

With more candidates entering the field every day, I'm concerned the number of candidates in the race is actually an establishment tactic to push Bernie to the fringe. For example, are they looking to nibble away so Bernie can't get a 50%+ majority? Does that matter? Does a more diluted delegate count impact how superdelegates can vote? Are there rules about the debates? What other impacts am I missing?

Guess what: This is incomplete and has inaccuracies.

I need your help to fix it to get the most accurate view of all the candidates (and make it clear who the best progressive choice is). The google doc is open for commenting. If something needs to be corrected, updated, or sourced (you can see how few items have linked sources), please leave a comment. This is a community effort.

Disclaimer: This is a recreation of a spreadsheet I saw floating around because I could not find the creator of the original. There have already been around 20 corrections made to the original and several new categories added, but there are definitely more that need to be corrected/added.

Which progressive organizations and candidates are the best bet for ensuring a progressive takeover of the Democratic Party?

Obviously this is a general question but I am curious which progressive organizations and candidates (other than Sanders) people in this movement have donated money/time to help.

I am considering donating to Our Revolution and Justice Democrats. I think Brand New Congress is misled to fund progressive GOP candidates, as it's a waste of time/resources and the GOP is beyond redemption. I can see the argument that just running progressive GOP candidates might move voters in deep red areas, but it still seems like too much effort for little result. Justice Democrats already has a track record and a better national profile so they seem more effective.

I also give monthly to my local Black Lives Matter organization and I would be curious to hear what other not-strictly-electoral organizations people donate/volunteer with.

With regard to candidates, I am considering donating to:

• Rep. Ilhan Omar

• Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

• Sen. Bernie Sanders (obviously)

• Former Sen. Mike Gravel (to get him to the debates)

• Rep. Ayanna Pressley

• Rep. Pramila Jayapal

• Rep. Rashida Tlaib

• Rep. Raul Grijalva

• Rep. Ro Khanna

Are there any other representatives or candidates who I should be paying attention and/or $ $ $ to?

Thanks for any information or advice you can give.

PS. None of the above is intended as a solicitation for anyone else to donate to the organizations or candidates I have listed. I am seeking information about what to do with my own resources.

The best way to turn the polling around is to volunteer! If you wait for other candidates to sink themselves, you might be waiting for too long.

As Bernie has said, we need the largest grassroots operation in the history of America. A million might not be enough.

Fact is, we tried Al Gore, we tried Kerry, we tried Hillary Clinton. Running as a centrist only worked for Bill, and nobody since. But most Americans will never think of it this way if no-one is there to tell them.

Be there.

We Asked All Of The 2020 Presidential Candidates Their Thoughts On Vaccines. Here’s What They Said.

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Bernie Sanders:

"Bernie believes that vaccinations work and are crucial to overall public health. Instances of serious but preventable diseases have been significantly reduced and many have been eliminated altogether as a result of vaccines," a Sanders spokesperson told BuzzFeed News.

Vaccines go through rigorous clinical trials as well as oversight by the Food and Drug Administration, and there isn't evidence they cause autism, the campaign added. Exemptions should be rare.

"Bernie believes opting out can create deadly risks for children suffering from illnesses who may not be able to receive a vaccination and are then exposed to children who are not vaccinated. Any exemptions should be rare and consistent with public health needs," the spokesperson said.
