Bernie Stands Alone – All Other Candidates Agree to Let The Club Pick The Democrat Nominee…

It was the final question in a wild and furious Democrat debate last night: “If no candidate earns the majority of delegates how should a nominee be chosen?”  Should the candidate with the most delegates be selected as the nominee?

Every candidate on stage -except Bernie Sanders- stated the private Club rules should determine the nominee at the DNC convention in Wisconsin; regardless of who comes to the convention with the highest number of delegates.   Bernie Sanders position is that whoever has the highest number of votes and earned delegates should be the nominee.

.

With proportional distribution this difference of opinion could be problematic if most of the candidates stay in the race (quite probable now, except Biden) and split the non-Bernie vote. Yet, Bernie Sanders beats them all in the popular vote and earned delegate count.

After the first round delegate count at the convention the 700 ‘Super Delegates’ could select a ‘non-Bernie’ nominee in round two. This has always looked like the Club plan; however, Team Bernie will likely go bananas.

    As I’ve said, Bloomberg sees Sanders as the threat, not President Trump.
    I think there is something to it that Bloomberg is running to deny Sanders, not defeat Trump.

    Here’s Bloomberg talking about how he is a big fan of his good friend Donald Trump.

      All Democrat Candidates should get an equal share of Delegates… that would prove the Democrats are serious about ‘equality’ –

      IF they don’t do that – there will be a ‘Delegate Gap’ – and that is totally unfair and unequal!

    My theory now is that the nominee is either Sanders or Biden.
    If the Club thinks they can get away with giving it to Biden on the 2nd or 3rd ballot and still get out of Milwaukee alive, they will. If the radical Left makes a strong showing on the streets of Milwaukee and start burning the mf’er down, then, and only then, Bernie will come out of the convention as the nominee.

    If Bernie is the nominee, then Bloomberg runs as an independent.
    There’s a good chance he runs as an independent even if someone else (likely Biden) is the Club choice. His excuse will be that the nominee is too weak to win and isn’t the People’s Choice.

    If the Club picks the nominee in a brokered convention, then it will almost certainly be Biden, because why change the original plan if you don’t have to? Biden is their choice and they’re sticking with him if it’s up to them.

        So, that’d not how it works.
        There are people who are going to vote for Trump.
        And there are people who are going to vote for Sanders.

        And finally, there are people who are going to vote for neither.

        Bloomberg would get some, but not all, of that 3rd group.

        Without a 3rd option, those voters will stay home.

        So what do those voters look like?
        They fit into 1 of 2 categories:

        Suburban Democrats
        National Review subscribers

        The effect Bloomberg would have on the race is he may save some Democrat freshmen in the House.

        Bloomers will take 5 independents and 4 never Trumpers away from PDJT in the general. The rest of the independents and Republicans are voting for PDJT enthusiastically.
        The President’s rally numbers show that independents are firmly lined up for him.

        The 4 never Trumps will spend the time between now and the general looking for a 5th so they can form one hockey line for their pathetic little team of ankle skaters.

        But you have to understand that Bernie is still going to get at least 50-something-million votes on election day..

        Regular rank and file democrats (whether they voted for Amy, Bootyjudge, or Biden) are going to trudge to the polls and pull the lever for the Democrats because that’s what they always do. They’ll vote down ticket and as long as they’re there they’ll pull the lever for Bernie because “orange man bad”

        Bloomberg would peel away the National Review readers and some angry housewives….but he’s also gonna take away millions upon millions of those regular rank and file democrats who would have otherwise voted for Bernie on election day because now they have a choice.

        Having a billioanaire running 3rd party will also take the wind out of their sails. It’s deflating. It stinks of chaos. It’s a turnoff. Depressing the vote because they know a slaughter is coming.

    It’s likely Bernie has already agreed to have a medical emergency and back out of the race several days before the convention so he can sell his endorsement to the highest bidder. He knows he can’t win the general election so It’s the only way he gets what he really wants (more riches and to be a hero). The dem establishment nominee gets to keep his mixed up socialist youths and the Bernie Bros since nobody feels robbed this way.
    It’s the only path to potential victory. If the dems cheat by stuffing the ballot box in November, their victory must at least appear possible to avoid civil war.

      To phrase the question that way would be to leave open that some may object or argue to NOT use the proposed method. Since the fix is in, and to maintain the pretense of unity, the question (rigged) had to be stated in the format used. What you suggest would be Kryptonite to the DNC as dissension cannot be permitted, so tenuous is their grip on the reality of truth.

      The DNC has been caught in their own web.
      Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

    This is very similar to what the NeverTrumpers had in mind in 2016. However, Trump surpassed the 1,237 delegates he needed to win a simple majority. There was a silly effort to try and get delegates to un-pledge their votes and vote for somebody else, but it never went anywhere. We’ll know more after Super Tuesday.

    (The same was true with Trump…when he emerged the clear winner on Super Tuesday, it was all over but the shouting. Cruz held out a little longer, but really it was over after Super Tuesday and other candidates dropped like flies in March.)

    Odds are pretty good right now that Bernie wins a simple majority so there is no second ballot. DNC I suppose could just rewrite the rules to let the Super Delegates vote in the first round, but that’s really no different than them saying they don’t give a rat about what the voters think, and have decided to pick somebody else. That will meet with some…resistance…and I would not rule out riots and violence by Bernie supporters.

    Sanders got a taste of what is coming for him from Trump in the fall when Bloomberg made fun of Sanders being the best known Socialist in America who owns 3 homes and is a millionaire. Sanders’ reply? “Of course I do. I work in D.C.” which is just about as tone deaf as a Marxist can get.

      The Bern becoming Pres and head of the Dim Party is a reality they cannot and, I bet, won’t live with under any circumstances.

The more you see Pete, the more fake he seems, Bernie has limited appeal.

None of the current candidates have a chance at producing turn out like Hillary would be able to do.
