Imagine if Bernie Sanders said or did this. Elizabeth Warren will do this in General Election. This is Joe Biden, straight from the horses mouth! “If you go out and bundle $250K for me and then you call me after I’m elected … I’m gonna say come on in.” https://t.co/1k6DdJXdmX

The difference between polling the general public and those who will actually participate in the primary

We shouldn't allow ourselves to get discouraged by polling one bit. Polling already has some issues, but what's more is that they poll the general public, usually people that identify as democrats. These people have average interest in politics. But, the people that actually turn out to vote in the primaries are those people that are very interested in politics.

In 2016, there were an estimated 61 million registered democrats in the USA. Only 30 million turned out to participate in the primaries, whereas almost 66 million people voted for Clinton. My point is that there is a difference in voting groups, and I think that it is a fair assumption that Biden has a larger following among voters with a passing interest in politics, and will have the largest loss in voting strength come primary time.

Bernie was consistently 10 to 30 points behind Clinton in the polls in 2016, and yet Bernie got 43% of votes. Hell at this time in the campaign cycle in 2016, Bernie was trailing Clinton by 40 to 60 points. 12 points back is a lot better than that.

We have 1,000,000 volunteers and more donors than any candidate in history. We need to remember that it's the active few that are going to determine this race, not the docile many.

Bernie speaks this morning to a general session at the California Democratic Party convention

The General Session begins at 10 am PT. Warren and several of the other presidential candidates spoke on Saturday; Bernie and a couple others speak today. Bernie has been very busy speaking at meetings of various caucuses at the convention–Arab-American, Chicano/Latino, Environmental, Labor, Veterans, and Women's at least, from what I've read.

This will be an important speech. Bernie had a great moment at the MoveOn conference. Let's keep it going today at the Democratic Party conference.

Expect Bernie’s support among African-Americans (and workers in general) to improve sharply in 2020

The survey of African-Americans that was alluded to in a NY Times op-ed on Wednesday highlighted the top 4 concerns of African-Americans as low wages, college tuition, health care and housing. These are the issues Bernie has zeroed in on in his campaign, more than any other candidate.

His main competition, right now, seems to be Harris and Biden. Harris cannot match Bernie programmatically, and her record in California as a prosecutor is far from progressive.

Biden's nominal support from African-Americans is based entirely on the fact that he was Obama's VP and has name recognition. When voters learn more about his actual record, expect African-American support to decline. See this excellent piece for reference: https://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/277-75/56859-focus-the-joe-biden-that-msnbc-wont-show-you

Ironically, Biden made his name as a national player by being the guy who opposed busing and affirmative action and favored draconian crime laws and the drug war. His status as the friend of the (white) worker seems to be based as much on his racial posturing than it is on any known commitment to working class politics. Hard to reconcile being pro-labor when you support deregulation of Wall Street, bankruptcy laws written by the credit card industry, and corporate trade deals that ship jobs overseas.
