Sanders is the center of gravity currently defining the conversation in the primaries. Now, he should convince voters that he’s also the most electable. It takes a different kind of Democrat, a populist, to beat a fake “populist” like Trump.

Sanders has won the ideological hearts and minds of the party base. If you look at the internals of many polls, including the one analyzed in the link below, the only reason Biden still leads is voters believe he is electable.

If Sanders wants to win, he should show voters he is the only person who can beat Trump. Talking about polls is part of it. However, there is a more visceral conversation he should have voters

He should convey that his style of leadership and engagement is something Trump can’t fight. If you watch the clip from Rational National, those who thought he won the last debate, were not describing policy, they were describing something more.

He cuts the bullshit. He’s in many ways the antidote to Trumpism. He should say it.

It is not just the rhetorical “beat down” that Sanders would brings.

He campaigneds in a way that the GOP clearly doesn’t know how to fight. The following is of a Trump campaign person claiming their strategy is the same for Biden as it is for Sanders.

Sanders should make the point that we can’t go into the general playing defense. He can lead a campaign that’s the populist offense.

The final point that Sanders should make is that, if he wins primaries, he brings out young voters that we will need to win the general. Bringing out more voters than normally show up is a powerful weapon in conveying electability. He should talk more about the types of voters he attracts and how they are the voters we will need up win the general

Sanders should be making the point that to he can beat a fake populist politician like Trump because he is an authentic Democratic populist.

What videos should I show my parents to get them to support Bernie?

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

I've talked to them about Bernie quite a bit, and they agree on virtually everything, with the one exception being abortion. We live in a southern, rural, republican state (Arkansas) which would benefit quite greatly from Bernie's policies (yet ironically opposes him). We have one of the worse healthcare systems in the country, pay is terrible, and conditions are horrible.

My mother works three jobs (two of which are on commission) and has an insane amount of student loan and medical debt, and my stepdad works a lot of overtime (maybe 70 hours a week?!). My bio dad is also disabled and barely gets by. Should note my mother voted for Trump but now dislikes him, and my bio dad refuses to even be open to the idea of voting.

Taking all of this into consideration, what do you guys think would be the best videos to show my parents, specifically of Bernie speaking?

I (Bernie supporter) am visiting my (Trump supporters) family for the holidays. Should I keep it to myself?

I value table-side politics. It's humanizing and it removes taboo. But I also try and have tact. There's a time and place for everything, and this might not be either. Thoughts?

I only ask, because usually I'm brought into it. As an EMT/pre-med student, they know I'm in favor of universal health care, harm-reduction facilities, etc. We might be watching FOX (because everything else is fake), and they'll ask "is x what you want?", "how could you support x?", "don't you know x?".

I'm good at not succumbing to visceral reactions/emotional quips, but the responses I usually receive after sharing my thoughts are:

– I use to be a democrat when I was your age

– you'll understand once you pay taxes

– let's talk about something else

Discussion: should phone bankers include their favorite or a recent short Sanders YouTube video in their SMS text messages?

I've noticed a decline in Sanders video promotions by YouTube's algorithm, and a corresponding decline in first-day views and "likes" — so if they should, should they also ask recipients to consider subscribing and liking the video(s)?

As more candidates drop out, we should embrace them, explain why Bernie is a good home for them, and encourage them to vote

We shouldn’t be trashing candidates that drop out, I am sure many people have Bernie as a second choice, let’s not dissuade them from joining the movement. Even if that is difficult for some.

Should Bernie join in on the anti-MSM push happening right now?

I am a Bernie/Yang guy. With the recent push against msnbc , I feel like it would be good for Bernies candidacy as well to get in on this action.

I feel like #ourdemocracyfirst is a great neutral hashtag to push the anti msm message. It is a play on the Ourrevolution of Bernie, and humanityfirst of Yang. Lord knows Bernie has been its victim for far longer than Andrew.

I feel like it’s an important moment to try and take back some power from corrupt scum institutions

Why should I vote for Bernie

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

I’m a 26(m) middle class, tax paying, hardworking citizen. I have seen some of Bernies platform. Conceptually I like it. However, I still cannot seem to get the answers I need to actually understand the full platform.

This is not a sarcastic or down putting post, just an interested American trying to get some facts.

If you respond, I may debate a bit and ask for clarification and validation of stated points. Not for argument sakes, but simply for clarity.

I canvassed today. So should you.

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

It was my first time canvassing. Like every other experience, I was nervous at first. But I got used to knocking on doors and talking to people quickly. There were 11 of us volunteers who showed up in Queens NY, and we got into groups of two or three. My group knocked on several dozen doors today, so all the volunteers in total reached several hundred doors. There were a lot of unanswered doors, so I'd say around a third of the people on the list responded. Fortunately, most of the people who responded were warm and friendly. There were a few individuals who absolutely ecstatic about Bernie and held a conversation several minutes long.

The typical conversation played out as introducing ourselves from the Bernie campaign, handing out pamphlets about Bernie's platform, asking the respondent who he/she's leaning towards, asking the respondent his/her top issue, and giving a small persuading statement for Bernie relative to the respondent's top issue. It was a great experience, and I will definitely canvass more. I really hope all of you follow my lead and canvass as well. Get out of your comfort zone because the only way we get this man to the White House is if we all do our part in volunteering and spreading his message.
