  5. So many people are like "making Biden the nomination is suicide" but Bernie couldn't even win the primary, why would they think he would stand a better change in the general?


  6. It was always going to be nothing but bad options.
    I hope you're all ready for 4 more seasons of president fuckface.

    It's because of who is going to turn out in November. Biden voters will vote for whoever the Dems put up. Bernie voters will be disenfranchised and stay home. Trump memers are more likely to swing for Bernie than Biden. Nobody is rallying behind Joe because he's leading, they're falling in line because their first choices already bowed out.

    Because a lot of people like him and no one likes Biden, even the people that voted for him.

    Most people that voted for Biden did so out of the belief that he was somehow more electable for being moderate, but polls show he has a fraction of the enthusiasm/favorability as even Clinton, who was a historically poor candidate. The moderate swing vote is a myth. It doesn't exist, but people's belief that it does led them to vote wrong.

    If what NPR has been reporting this last month is accurate, more voters have come out to vote in this primary than in 2016 but the youth vote and Bernie votes have dropped. So there's more momentum overall behind a democratic nominee than in 2016 and Bernie is less popular than he was even then.

    I'm not saying that Biden is some awesome dude everyone chose first, but he's the most popular candidate the party has in terms of actually receiving votes so far.

    He isn't remotely popular. Even among people who VOTED FOR HIM in the primary, only 24% consider themselves "very enthusiastic." That's a fraction of what Hillary had, and she was a horrendous candidate with a huge enthusiasm gap.

    No one likes Biden. Everyone just believed that OTHER PEOPLE liked him and that he was best positioned to beat Trump and voted for him because defeating Trump was their top priority. But that isn't actually true, and he will probably lose.
