Is anyone else getting nervous about the large amount of progressives running?

Right now we already have Warren, Ojeda, Gabbard, Yang, and hopefully, Bernie Sanders. Then on top of that, we have establishment Democrat politicians like Harris, Booker, and Gillibrand, who are likely going to be trying to frame themselves as progressives.

I'm definitely not condemning progressives for throwing their hat in the race. I'm actually happy to see it. My only concern is that unless we end up with a similar number of centrist establishment candidates, that we might split the progressive vote and ending up with another establishment nominee.

Maybe it's too early to be thinking about this, but does this concern anyone else?

If Bernie is running, when should he declare?

With Warren declaring I’d assume he’d want to do it a bit earlier to prevent her from getting momentum and taking away from his base. On the other hand he has the benefit of being one of the most popular politicians in the country, so he doesn’t have to risk a long campaign tarnishing his approval ratings and election chances. What do you think?

Why Warren running wont matter with Bernie in the race.

so clearly with the news this morning of Elizabeth Warren saying she is basically gonna run for president is both surprising but not surprising at the same time. What do i mean by this? We wouldnt of been surprised if Warren was gonna run for president since basically everyone in the democratic party is basically running. Not to say she isnt more high profile then most of the people we heard say they are running for president back in early fall. What is surprising however is the fact she is the first one to do it. Tho i think this is basically the start and more and more people like Harris and Biden will start saying they are running to.

Now, to the point of this point. Im sure alot of thinking " So if Warren is planning to run, would Bernie run still?" I feel like the answer is yes for 2 reasons

  1. Bernie has been planning this for two years with his former staff and him campaigning very hard with the midterms.
  2. His name power is far higher than Warren's.

To example the first point, since the midterms started a year ago bernie has been building and building a solid base of support and going to starts like Iowa and places in the midwest for campaigning; as well as going to the southern states to help people down there.

The second point is that Bernie's name power compared to Warren's. There is a common Anecdote out there that Warren and Bernie being in the same race will split the progressive vote which i highly disagree with. I think if you were to have a election in the rust belt states like WI, MI and others you will find more people would remember bernie and vote for him over Warren. Plus i have a feeling that Warren will be alot more welcome by Corporate media like MSNBC so theres that.

I wouldnt despair over bernie not running, i think he has done so much over the last year to not be planning something.
