I need someone to ELI5 bundling vs PAC money

I'd like to be able to speak more knowledgeably on campaign funding, especially to my friends who are still on the fence about Bernie.

I know that every candidate has sworn off of corporate PAC money, but almost all of them except Bernie are really just sidestepping corporate PACS and using bundlers instead, thereby allowing big money to maintain its influence on the political process. Just wanted a clearer explanation of what the process of bundling actually is.

Kamala is the biggest threat to Bernie now. Not Biden. That’s why we need to volunteer more. And Teach people about Kamala.

RCP has them tied: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html And RCP was right on the money about the 2016 general. They said Hillary was up 2%. And she won by 2%. However they aren't good state by state. They're only good on a national level. Most of these polls ask a very reasonable number of young voters (who are unlikely voters BTW). If you make the claim that the polls are phone based cite your sources. Remember smart phones are phones too. Sure all of the polls are a little wonky. But they aren't lies. That's why RCP is so the most reliable. It's an average. People always trust all the polls when they have good news for the candidate they like. Either way If Bernie isn't doing a lot better than Kamala according to RCP. Even with the skewed polls. Then we aren't helping out enough. We need to do more for Bernie. Donate more. Campaign harder. We need to fight fight fight harder. For Bernie. Bernie should be doing a lot better in the polls. Despite the skewing. This why we need to do a lot more for him. He has a really great shot at the nomination. But we aren't campaigning enough. We should should act like RCP is right. And have that encourage us to do more for him.

Again be reasonable about your skepticism. Don't be a parrot. Backup your skepticism. Also don't over estimate people's knowledge about Kamala's record. Most don't yet know what's wrong with her. Don't over estimate the political knowledge of the average voter. So all most people know about her is her brilliant performance during the debate. And Most left voters are very concerned about beating Trump. And they don't know that's the same thing as having good policies. And being honest.

That'ts why we need to volunteer more. And teach them about Kamala's record. That's why I made a list of videos about her record:










Lastly I will add that there's good news for Bernie. Here's got earned media in spades. Probably a lot less than what Trump got on TV in 2016. But He certainly has way more than anyone else. This explains earned media:

On the other hand remember Hillary's and Bernie's advantages/disadvantages in 2016. Who knows exactly how similar 2020 will be. The Democratic party probably has a (at least somewhat) different plan for managing 2020. And Kamala Got a lot of earned media from the debate. Most TV based. Like Trump. And TV is what likely voters mostly get their info from. Dem voters are younger than rep voters. But still there are a lot of old dem voters.

I need some advice (help)

Both of my parents are liberal, so am I. The problem persists when my parents try to pick a candidate to elect in the primaries. My father is still deciding, my mother is leaning towards Beto O'Rourke (we live in Texas) but I want to tell her that he is not the same man, nor is he supporting the same policies back in 2018 midterms. I believe her main attraction to him is his "charisma" (which leans on a bigger problem, Identity Politics, but I digress).

Can anybody send me some information or any advice that might help my parents to at least consider Bernie as a potential candidate? Thank you.
