Winning over Warren Voters: Honey, not Vinegar… or “hook em with kindness”.

It's no secret that Bernie and Warren do have at least some overlap, and with the recent "Bernie Surge", it seems inevitable that Bernie will pass Warren again in the national polls at some point in the not to distant future.

I know that feels good, and I know people have told us "Bernie should drop out" a lot since Warren has passed Bernie in the polls.. but think about how that felt.. did that make you want to change over to Warren? I know it didn't for me.

I just ask that we keep that in mind, we can win this thing… but we need to be the campaign that everybody feels moved to get on board with.

I personally will share the polls, but I won't rub them in peoples faces… for example.

I pretty much put the main point of my post in the title (catch flies with honey, not vinegar), but I just wanted to share this.

Together forward! Not me, US!

Hey, Could You All Do Me a YUUUGE Solid? I sent over 5,000 texts for Bernie today, and hundreds of additional replies, BUT…

I really wanted to do more. A lot more. I wish I could spend all day textbanking (because there are SO many that need to be sent to remind people of the FEC fundraising deadline!) But I have to work. As a full-time Uber/Lyft driver, I cannot afford to take off Saturdays. If you've never textbanked before (or haven't done it recently), could you please (pretty please) consider doing at least a few hundred (ideally a few thousand) in my honor? It's really not bad (and in fact, it's pretty fun and engaging once you get the hang of it). Thank you! Love this community!

Biden is leading amongst older African-Americans, particularly in the south. They have nothing to lose and everything to gain from a Sanders administration. We can win them over, and we do that by really committing ourselves to breaking down the race and age barriers.

Outside of the internet, real world action- talking to folks face to face, regularly, passionately, is the big deal, and that doesnt necessarily mean talking politics. These kinds of conversations, tied to committed and genuine action, stick with people in way internet exchanges dont.

I recommend that each of us on here go out into the real world and start some conversations. Truth is, older black voters, particularly in the south, have a YUGE amount to gain from a Bernie administration, and are currently tagging along with biden because hes a name they recognise and associate with the first black president. These are the voters we need. These are the voters who propelled hillary to the nomination, and are keeping sleepy joe afloat.

Bernie is from their generation, fought side by side with them in the struggle for equal rights, and continues to fight to make their lives better. Black Berners, talk to your folks! Talk to their friends! Talk as much as you can! I know that sometimes older folks arent fond of getting lectured by young'uns, but this is a great chance to really connect with them, and older folk love and need that human contact in their lives as the list of old friends runs thinner. Talk to them, listen to them, ask their advice, and reinforce the idea that our revolution is the civil rights fight of our age, and that what they learned in the fight can be invaluable knowledge it the battle we face today.

White Berners, get out of your comfort zones and start taking the time to frequent black business, build friendships, take on some volunteering work with older citizens and in worthy causes in poorer neighbourhoods. If youre in the north or on the coast, take some time out to visit the south and spread some love. You dont need to go lecture people, god knows the last thing older black citizens want is a bunch of white folks telling them whats good for them, but commit your time and effort to actually getting to know people in the black community and to help those communities to tackle the challenges facing them. Show them that we are one people, fighting for a better life together. When they ask you why you do it, tell em Bernie sent you! Tell them in Bernies America, no one gets left behind.
