The following headline is ridiculous.
The moderate vote of Biden/Klobuchar/Buttigieg is not only greater than Sanders, but greater than 50%. These voters will easily coalesce around one of these candidates – even if it takes as long as the convention.
I mean, Jesus, Buttigieg is leading in delegates.
Yes, it’s early – for everyone.
Not-Sanders has won 3/4 of the popular vote in both IA and NH.
Certainly the field will winnow, but, Sanders’ support has been halved from 2016 and turnout is flat.
At this point, Sanders is likely to win enough delegates to force a contested convention…which will not choose him.
