Prediction for November

I said this awhile ago in a conversation among friends...

No matter how much momentum Sanders has, The Democratic Party will not back him up enough for him to pull out a victory (like in 2016).

The moderate candidate (Biden) will get the nomination, and will narrowly lose to Trump in November (like in 2016).

Note that this post does not necessarily reflect my personal political views, rather my prediction. That said, in order to keep this thread from getting deleted due to violating the code of conduct, I like to suggest that responses be limited to unbiased predictions, and that arguing about politics should be avoided.(edited)

I thought this originally, then it seemed Biden was done and Bloomberg was on the rise. But now Im back to agreeing with you. Biden is receiving support from all the moderate dems, but in all reality is not that popular. The moderates want anyone to vote for other than Trump, but is also not Bernie.

My big questions are...

1) How will the Bernie supporters react when Biden gets the nomination.

2) Will Bloomberg drop out and support Biden or could he possibly run Independent? He has so much money sunk into this race already and with his age I wonder if he will just say screw it and keep running.

3) Who will be the VP picks?

Yep. It’s over. Biden will just be a sacrificial lamb.(edited)

Re: Prediction for November

I still think Bloomburg will stick around and put money into Biden with the hope of Biden picking hm.for VP run..

Re: Prediction for November

gimme stacy abrams and you can get me to swallow biden

i think biden would do fine in an election anyway, a buncha people hated hillary because they'd created these wild backstory and legends about how she was somehow deeply evil, maybe just to bury their own internalized reasons to not want to be voting for a woman? I can't say what happened but there was a huge pile of wild make-believe about how hillary and the clintons were somehow global supervillains who murder their foes, crazy shit. I'm sure biden will have some but there's sadly some preconditioning against clinton and against believing women or believing in women.

So you get all the people who've realized what a disaster trump is, but were too weirdly proud and/or fooled into believing somehow hillary wou'dve been worse. how?

And really I hope that IF the DNC does steal the nomination again that we can manage 1) to get whomever is the nominee to adopt more or bernie's policies, maybe even pull in a respectable progressive VP, and 2) that people can swallow their pride and realize that the powerful always win, and sometimes you gotta take some lumps to prevent worse catastrophe. I understand how tempting it'd be to say, fine if you gonna screw bernie with wild media bias, fearmongering over loose claims of "socialism" etc, then you deserve 4 more years of trump. But the truth is, the consequences are too grave, we can't let spite cause us to abandon wisdom compassion and hope.

I was predicting the same. Deep down people want a moderate but at the same time they thrive on the polarization between the extremes. Biden seems pretty tough and may win the popular vote but Trump will win the electoral by a small margin. If the virus issue gets bigger, the tilt may go against Trump as it could tank the economy and that is what people look at in an emcumbent.

None of it will matter cause there is a large, yet to be detected astroid that will slam into the earth on election day.

Thank God! It’s been a good run. Peace out...

Re: Prediction for November

Don't rule out `Michelle, my Belle', Obomber. Last ditch effort? LOL! Again, Bernie's toast!

Re: Prediction for November

Joe Biden is losing his mental faculties. He’s always been a bit of a dummy, but now he doesn’t even know where he is most of the time. This is the man we want in charge of our country? I guess a dementia dem is better than a bully of a neo con, but I’d rather be able to get affordable health care and imagine a future that is better for everyone and not just the rich and super rich. Did you notice that today private healthcare stocks jumped over 100 points after Biden was considered the winner? Hmmm what could that possibly mean?

Re: Prediction for November

Make `Michelle, my Belle', VICE prez and then she can take over when Biden loses it totally.

Desperation time, Kool Aid drinkers! You need to keep that Roe V. Wade supreme court!

Yeah, he just seems really confused most of the time, was watching him last night a bit....completely lost, that just sealed our fate to 4 more yrs of Trump. I can't figure out why any politician would not want to implement universal health care, it is prob in the top 5 worries of anyone who is not a millionaire, getting sick can bankrupt a person today, would vote for any party that could get this done, we certainly have the money, but clearly not the compassion. Maybe in another 4 yrs more of the fossil's in charge will die off. :) I would just think whatever party gets this done would be the hero of the nation, not just those that affiliate either Dem or Republican. Good political capital.

This is the biggest reason not to nominate Biden. The occasional slip-up in speaking is one thing, but it's constant with him. It seems clear that his mental state is deteriorating, and against Trump I don't think Biden can pull it off. If more young people would vote we could have Sanders, who has a good shot at beating Trump, but so far it's not looking good for him.

Re: Prediction for November

Young people will not vote in large #'s until they can do it from their phone...lol, only sort of kidding. if all the young DID vote, I think Trump could be ousted. I sadly, just don't see it happening.

^ There are only so many young people. It’s the old fucks that need to get their head out of their ass and vote for bernie.

Re: Prediction for November

Bernie may have had more of a chance had he kept his "giveaway" list to Universal health care, could have rolled out whatever once elected? May have attracted the moderates, as healthcare is something that affects everyone.

Re: Prediction for November

The democratic establishment is in bed with Wall Street. Wall Street is run by technology, energy, pharmaceutical and medical providers and chemical/industrial suppliers. If we do not get a candidate who won’t let them stuff money into their pockets we will never have public services that benefit the whole of society, we will continue to have excess and greed among the ruling class and we will be forced to take action against the government. I would gladly exercise my 2nd amendment right and garner a militia to fight the oligarchs that control this country. Maybe it’s time to hop on this ar15 band wagon and start a revolution for the many and not the privileged few.

Re: Prediction for November

Seriously get off this crap... her lose had nothing to do with being a woman... For an out of the box thinker your really chucking anyone with opposing beliefs into the "racist, sexist, bigot" group. I think socialism is straight up evil and i still recognize that you think your trying to help people.

Trump lacks the demeanor of what a president should be, but the democrats keep throwing crap candidates and crap ideas to oppose him. Sanders cant even unify his own party so he will lose. Biden is old & forgetful and is only now getting support because the moderate democrats fear a Sanders nomination.

The last democrat hope really lies in the Coronavirus tanking the stock market... because regardless of why people will blame Trump for a crap economy.

So you want to both ban assault rifles & form a militia. Are you saying Don has been right this whole time, you really are planning to throw rocks at the "establishment?"

Seriously tho, a ban on any type of weapon means the corrupt groups you oppose will be the only ones with the weapons you plan to regulate.

Re: Prediction for November

In the 1970s they banned assault rifles and changed a lot of open carry laws as the black panthers were exercising their rights to the second amendment. The government passed laws to restrict them and killed a few key organizers. This ended their movement. But no one ever references that when they have their pro gun talking points. Right now yes, you can have guns, but go ahead and try to organize a well regulated militia, armed with sling shots, against corruption in our political system. Put that second amendment to the test and see how protected your rights are. The government doesn’t care about a bunch of racist hillbillies whining about Mexicans speaking Spanish or bringing in drugs. They constantly stand up for these Narcos states and just want to protect the status quo to keep generating profits.

So you kinda understand our point of view, but I think many who read this don't understand yours. Socialism at it's core is advocating for the rights of those who work to have control over their work environment and for social programs to improve the health and well-being of the people in a society. That is how I (and I think the vast majority of supporters of socialist ideals) see it, and from my side of the river I don't see what's straight up evil about that. No system is perfect, but un-checked capitalism actively rewards evil acts (see insider trading, snake oil, etc.)

> Sanders cant even unify his own party so he will lose.

The Democrats aren't Sanders' party, and that's the reason he's being opposed by the establishment.

Ronald Reagan did a damn good job of stripping the Black Panthers of power by making California's gun laws into what they are today. Conservatives know this line is bullshit cause they have used gun control to oppress people when it benefits them despite what they preach.

Mike Bloomberg for president commercials are still running on local television channels LOL!

He really wanted to be a good guy he could’ve picked 585 poor families and gave them $1 million each

Re: Prediction for November

No, Bloomberg's hatred and jealousy of Trump drove him to try and weaken Trump.

He spent less than 1/60th of his wealth. He'll write it off if he's allowed. LOL!

Is that why all socialist countries are among the happiest in the world? Also please understand totalitarian dictatorships hiding under the guise of socialism have absolutely nothing to do with socialism.

Most Americans still believe our old regimes ideology that socialism is evil because it was beat into their brains like religion. Communism is strongly tied to Russia and it's politics. Most Americans grew up fearing communism, Russia and a nuclear holocaust. It's hard to undo centuries of mind conditioning Bas.(edited)
