For reference, I'm talking about Gabbard, Sanders, and Warren. I know this is a Sanders sub, but what are his chances realistically? I'm noticing Biden is slowing down while Bernie and Warren seem to be picking up. I know it's months prior to Iowa, but how are their chances as of now?

Sunday morning political shows barely discussed climate change in April

Sunday morning political shows’ coverage of climate change dropped markedly in April, hitting a three-month low. The five major Sunday shows aired a combined total of just two segments in April that included any substantive discussion of climate change, down from seven in February and six in March.

Both of the April segments that discussed climate change came during interviews with Democratic presidential candidates, following a trend first in evidence in March. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who announced his presidential candidacy on April 4, talked about climate action during his appearance on the April 14 episode of ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, whose campaign is centered on fighting climate change, brought up the topic numerous times during his interview on the April 14 episode of NBC’s Meet the Press with host Chuck Todd.

Bernie Sanders’ Campaign Is the Political Opportunity of a Lifetime

Article here.

The Sanders campaign is a political opportunity unlike any we’ve seen in our lifetimes. With profound purpose, it raises the stakes to fit the magnitude of what is at stake; it challenges in national electoral terms the kind of destructive domination that has ruled with dispiriting and deadly results. “We’re going to have to fight Wall Street, neoliberals, those who don’t want the change to come,” [Nina] Turner said.

A current media meme — ignoring the importance of Bernie’s longstanding record — assumes that he is likely to lose many votes to other candidates who’ve recently endorsed his 2016 campaign proposals. But it matters greatly that Bernie has unique credibility as someone who has been part of progressive social movements during the last several decades — and who hasn’t waited for opinions to become fashionable before expressing them. “It’s hard not to be a bit wary of people who know how the wind is blowing and now are blowing with it,” I told a San Francisco Chronicle reporter who quoted me in an article that appeared hours before the rally. “Bernie is part of movements that create the wind. Bernie is not a wind sock.”

I just got this email from Team Bernie. He needs our help. Can I count on you to donate to the Political Revolution? FEC Fundraising Deadline is Tomorrow!

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

Chris, a short note before the day gets away from us:

Tomorrow at midnight we close the books on our first official FEC fundraising deadline. When that happens, we’ll publicly disclose not just how much money we’ve raised but how many donations make up that number.

We set a goal of 1 million individual donations before it ends. We chose to focus on the people not the money, because that is the strength of our campaign.

But right now we’re behind on the pace we need to get there. So we’re hoping a big day today can help us close the gap. That’s why we have to ask:

Can you make a donation – of any amount – before our first, official FEC fundraising deadline comes to a close tomorrow? We would not be pushing for this goal if this report were not so important.

Every single donation we report sends a message that our campaign is building the kind of movement capable of not just beating Trump, but transforming our country. Thank you for powering this effort.

Team Bernie
