    I'm 99% sure that Texas will now go to Biden.
    Looks even more likely that Bernie wins Minnesota and he has a pretty safe margin in Texas polls.

    These comments are exactly why I have a hard time trying to like Bernie. I mean, I canít blame Bernie... but I donít like this side of politics.
    [THE COMMENT HE QUOTED: And hey @PeteButtigieg, try to not be so smug when you just got your ass kicked. You know how we form a winning coalition to beat Trump? With a true multi-racial coalition of working Americans: something @BernieSanders has proven he can do + you havenít. Dude, show some humility]

    Even if they are going to Bernie's side, one wonders how loyal they'll be (and if their tweets will actually manifest in bothering to go out on the day), considering both had such disdain for Bernie Bros
    (SIDE NOTE: I swear I've seen people share the image/text from the tweet directly, how did they do that???)
    They complained about Bernie supporters but now they are supporting Bernie in the primary.

    That's some people are doing when there are other Democrats for them to support. More proof that most of the supporters of other candidates will support Bernie in the general if he's the nominee.

    Yup there’s a lot of early voting done. My father is furious because he voted for Amy in Massachusetts already

    Minnesota is Bernie's to lose now but I'm not going to get my hopes up about Texas.

    What does everyone think should happen at a brokered convention?

    Should the person with the most delegates get the nomination?

    The person leading should win the nom and if they don’t Trump won

    Edit: and I say that assuming Biden has a strong shot at being that person.

    Ah, we're making progress. You admit to being intentionally disrespectful. You admit to not respecting labels. You admit to not caring about labels in the community. I may not support your views (I don't think many liberal minded people would), but I do at-least toff my hat that you're finally being honest about it. If you're going to be intentionally disrespectful, it's good to not lie about it.

    Which then brings us too...

    Admittedly, it was bitchy and I’m sorry but you can drop the narrative that I’m some monster who uses the wrong gender pronouns for shits and giggles.
    Thank-you for justifying my earlier gif, and now...



    WOAH! Another before Super Tuesday??? Now this... I was not expecting. (then again I wasn't expecting Buttigieg to drop out either ). But to also endorse Biden (am I right in saying Mayor Pete has yet to do that?); interesssssting.

    I suppose I was highlighting that the two best examples you had were from flipfloppers. Not die hard Buttigieg supporters. I do think if Bernie is the nominee a lot of those unhappy with his supporters will still go and hold their nose at the polls to stop Trump. My issue has always been WILL IT BE ENOUGH of them? Will these antics keep enough away, OR will these antics on the day be the "meh" feeling that makes people not bother going to vote at all.

    But I'm feeling nice today, so I'll throw you a bone... I have no problem with Sanders AS A PERSON. I don't agree with most of his views, but I like a leader with conviction (even if I disagree) over someone who seems to have no real view (what's his name, the husband of the ketchup queen who ran against Bush the second time... my god, he didn't have a single conviction in his body). My issue has always been "what about Sanders attracts such hateful loyalists, in a number greater than is usual in political online debate?"

    I agree with Knight, the person leading should get the nom. The margin would have to become ridiculously narrow for any other tactic.

    Bernie is the front-runner and I believe he will stay that way at least after tomorrow. Then we see what the coalescing of the other candidates means. I know a lot of polls say Bernie is a second choice, but we'll see if that plays out on ballots.

    Warren may stay in for the odds of a contested convention and being seen as the compromise candidate. (Also not good for Bernie)

    Stop misrepresenting people claiming they are "choosing" Flav over Chuck -- the point is that Public Enemy shouldn't be divided over Sanders.

    This kind of lying nonsense is exactly why it's a waste of time to discuss things with Sanders' supporters.

    Pete and Amy both endorsing Biden.

    Even Bill Murray Tweeted that he is switching his vote from Warren to Biden because he thinks Biden stands the best chance to win.

    The day before Super Tuesday, Mike Bloomberg is taking his foot off the gas on Facebook ad spending. Yesterday, Bloomberg launched hundreds of new Facebook ads. Today, he’s only launched a handful, totaling only a few hundred dollars.
