Biden's lead potentially shrinking in SC.
This matches the poll we had the first week of February, which also indicated Biden leading Sanders 28 to 20. If nothing else, it illustrates that the gap between Sanders and Biden down there isn't as huge as it once was.

The left are always the sole moral agents. The left must compromise and bend to the will of the rest of the political spectrum who are immovable and couldn't possibly be expected to compromise.
We must realize that corporate media will fight any real change in the status quo. They are run by billion dollar corporations managed by billionaire boards and couldn’t give any less of a fuck about us.

Imagine if a politician critiqued AIPAC for this type of horseshit and dozens of posters on here decided to shield them and attack the one critiquing them instead?

I can’t fathom it. Good thing it would never happen.

Would be really nice if the US took Latin America at all seriously. I don't even want to imagine what your politicians think of Central/South America if they can't even name the president of a neighbouring Latin American country. This really illustrates why the relationship between your country and the region is so terrible, complete ignorance and lack of interest beyond how to best exploit resources.

Edit: listening again it appears Buttigieg did say the full name

To be fair they were right lol. Granted, Sotomayo in the SC and legalizing gay marriage were great, but Obama did not turn out to be the progressive he campaigned as.
That's what I was implying, I guess better things really aren't possible, at least not down to a single president. I don't have fantasies of Bernie ushering in a new era of democratic socialism singlehandedly, I just want him in there to push the party forwards to more progressive ideals and catch us up to the rest of the world.

Lol, why is Bloomberg even an option in the new SC poll if hes not even on the ballot there? 6% is pretty high for someone not even there.

Among likely voters who are African American, Joe Biden leads Bernie Sanders 36% to 20%. Tom Steyer is third (17%), followed by Elizabeth Warren (7%), Michael Bloomberg (5%), Pete Buttigieg (4%), Tulsi Gabbard (1%), and Amy Klobuchar (1%).
This seems pretty big to me. With Bloomberg being a non factor, any black voters who see Biden as a sinking ship have nowhere else to go besides Bernie and fucking Steyer. If Bernie wins again in NV, it could cause him to somehow sneak behind Biden and either win or get far closer than anyone thinks.

That dumb double endorsement article about Klob being able to work with republicans is so farcical that I wish I could laugh. The turtle is sitting on close to 400 bills that won't go anywhere and they control the fucking presidency. So explain to me how Klob could get anything, anything, that isn't a far right, senate provided bill through congress?

Will THIS stop the endless Bloomsday prophecies in this thread? Bernie thrashes him one on one...
Bloomsday (excellent name) isn't about polling though. Its strictly about delegates in a brokered convention siding with a moderate over a progressive. If the delegates were obliged to vote for who the country wants then we wouldn't be having this conversation in the first place.

How is this legal? Sounds super shady

. As is typical with most big-money giving programs, the more a donor gives to AIPAC, the higher tier they can claim — $100,000 level, $1 million level, and so on — and the more benefits accrue to them. A $100,000 donor gets more access to members of Congress at private functions, for instance, than someone who merely pays AIPAC’s conference fee. A $1 million donor gets still more, which means that it is important to donors to have their contributions tallied. There is also status within social networks attached to one’s tier of giving. The arrangement allows donors to give directly to DMFI, which is required to file disclosures naming its donors, without AIPAC’s fingerprints

It sounded more like people were worried that if the centrist blob monster finally congealed into a singular form (Bloomberg) that he'd beat Bernie in the actual voting

Personally I believe as people drop and Bernie keeps winning he's going to peel off the Warren and Biden voters who have him as their second choice, and as I mentioned before, people want to back the winner.

Bloomberg's strategy is legitimately about subverting the will of the people. He doesn't want votes, he wants delegates.
