I just received a call from someone supposedly working at the 2020 campaign call center and he was rude, pushy and impatient with my questions. If others are getting these types a of calls, this is not a good look for the campaign.

He was pushy about me donating to the campaign. Every time I told him that I would just donate online, he did not seem to like that answer. He offered a mail-in donation envelope and wanted some kind of guarantee that I'd donate $ 35 with 2 weeks. He then was belittling and was getting verbally annoyed with my questions. I just hung up after.

Are there scams out there impersonating the campaign? Or are these actually legit calls? If these are legit, then the campaign needs to rethink who they hire. This was the first human interaction I had with the campaign, and if I wasn't an informed voter, I wouldn't be holding the Bernie campaign in high regards after this call.

Curious what everyone else's experience has been.

Pretty sure I just got a call from someone pretending to be a part of the Bernie campaign.

I figured it would be a congratulatory call or something, like I’ve read has happened before, she was going into the whole thing about a grassroots movement, 1000000 volunteers, etc, I was super stoked to be getting the call. She than asked if I could commit to a monthly donation to the Bernie camp, I declined as I already donate regularly and it’s easier to keep track of anyway. It’s at this point that she asks if she can send me a form so that I can mail back a donation, and apparently I’ll have to give my card number to do this(for some reason). I again decline because I prefer to go online(and was getting suspicious at this point anyway) and the money is going to Bernie either way. She than assured me that I wouldn’t need to give her my 3 digit code on the card, and after repeated denials, I just entirely don’t trust her at this point.

PSA folks, only ever donate through the official campaign website, it’s just safer.

It may have been a real campaign worker, but with all the phone scams in the world today, you can’t just call people from a list and ask for their credit card number.

Why is Biden getting positive press and are some or most polled Dems so simple minded to just auto vote Biden?

I don't understand the appeal of Biden. When it comes to healthcare he wants more of the same broken system….it has failed. Why are people going for Biden. Is it really as simple as well he's been there in the white house so he knows how to run it mentality?

Are we Americans really that simple minded? I'm just stumped at the stupidity and simplicity of that mentality.

Bernie did so well with Fox News town hall, he was performing so well with farmers too based on his message for non compete with outsourcing.

I have very low hopes for the Dems if Joe wins the primary and may consider dropping the party altogether because I'm so disconnected.

Anyone else understand where I am?

Just Noticing a Trend We Need to Address If We Will Win

Bernie Sanders is my preferred choice for president in 2020. Thus, when political discussions come up with my friends who are left wing, I give my take. They respect my opinion and Bernie Sanders. However, they tend to say they support folks like Biden or Kamala. They will vote for whichever democrat wins the primary though. As we hold that Bernie is the best option we need to win these voters over. From conversations, they say their issues with Bernie include his image (which I know is not a valid point and I say we must judge a candidate by his ideas and voting record) and they say he can't win (he can, and I explain about the interview he had with Fox). As Bernie supporters and Americans, we need to work on convincing these people that Bernie is the best option. I feel like I have done a decent job swaying these people slightly closer to Bernie, yet a few days later when the conversation begins again they seem to still support their candidate albeit a little less. They understand the issues I bring up (the problem of money in politics and how the DNC is not a good faith organization) but they do not reach the conclusion that Sanders is the solution. (This gets infuriating sometimes).

Ultimately, the trend I am noticing is that people will vote for whomever becomes the nominee but they seem to prefer Kamala and Biden. Have others witnesses this?
