Hi everyone. Need some advice. I’ve had several conversations lately with Bernie supporters expressing defeat already now that Biden is in the game and “showing great lead” in the polls.

I am nervous about this because these are all potential Bernie voters who really believe in his policies and yet are already assuming Biden will be the nominee and they will have to vote for him to defeat Trump. The biggest reason they give for this supposed eventuality is that Biden has a “very strong base” in Trump states. We need people to stay motivated and excited and jazzed up about Bernie and bring all of their energies and their friends energies to the polls in the primaries and beyond. How do I motivate them so they don’t lose faith? I also find it fucking annoying that defeating trump has become priority. Trump is a symptom of a very deep rooted problem of economic stagnation, social injustice and insecurity and inequity and making his removal a priority is overlooking the fundamental structures that brought him to the presidency in the first place. Thanks for all your thoughts!

We need to create a regularly updated storage area on this sub for quotes and figures that support our argument

Frequently, when I form arguments for Bernie during conversations, I mention statistics and info that my unwittingly msm watching friends have never heard of. They ask for proof which puts the onus on me to deliver. Why don’t we create a section on this sub that houses the latest and greatest data that supports Bernie. We could include info like a link to that cnn Monmouth bogus poll that didn’t sample anyone under 60 or something. We could have graphics showing the voting record of Bernie compared to biden. And we could include biden gaffes like him saying that pence is a decent man and that Cheney is a good guy. Or his best one: I have no empathy for millennials.

TLDR: we need a depository on the sub with easily accessible material to back up the arguments that bolster Bernard including Biden’s “I have no empathy for a whole voting demographic” and the cnn poll that literally didn’t sample ANYONE younger than a boomer!

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?

It’s always so insane to hear American medical stories from this side of the Atlantic. Patients not being able to get the care they want or need because an insurance company refuses. Absolutely insane to me, boggles the mind
