Skip to comments.‘Operation Chaos’ GOP group makes its choice for SC Democratic primary
Posted on 02/26/2020 6:49:17 PM PST by springwater13
More Republican groups hoping to meddle in the states Democratic presidential primary on Saturday have decided who will get their vote.
The Greenville Tea Party has chosen to support for Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, as he has risen in the polls and has won the popular vote in the Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada contests.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has consistently led in the South Carolina polls, but the lead over Sanders has shrunk in recent weeks.
Stephen Brown, the former chairman of the Greenville Tea Party, said a few thousand votes may tip the scales of Saturdays primary in Sanders direction.
Hes doing well in the polls, Brown said.
A Sanders nomination would provide a clear contrast with President Donald Trump in November, supporters of the so-called Operation Chaos movement say.

We need to push him over the top and down their throats.
Make them openly wear the socialism they have been cloaking all these years.
I respectfully disagree. In the MA primary next Tuesday, I’m pulling a Dem ballot and voting for Biden. Maximum chaos will occur with a brokered convention, regardless of whether Bernie is the eventual candidate or not. But, I’d rather not see him as a first ballot winner going into the convention.
Sad when conservatives become better at being tricky than communicating with voters.
Recent polls in MA show Sanders and Warren in a virtual tie.
Wouldn’t it be great for the Squaw to get scalped in her home state?
Be very careful playing with that old black magic.
The Dems will already be adding their own special brands of Chaos, as is always the case.
I think the Democrats are doing well enough without mischief from Republicans. Just get out the popcorn and watch them have their fun.
I respectfully disagree. Biden is the establishment candidate Democrats want. He needs to be put out to pasture and sent to an assisted living facility. The man has dementia. It is elder abuse.
Also, while I think he is a joke candidate, he is perceived as moderate and would do well in the suburbs and with the black vote. Biden makes it tougher for Republicans to take back the house.
Sanders gives Republicans the potential for a landslide, taking back the suburbs and having Pelosi resign from Congress in shame.
Sanders all the way for Operation Chaos.
OPERATION CHAOS: Go with the worst-polling Jackass in the field, then next state flip to some other loser....except Gloomberg. Keep their delegates evenly split and their egos will not allow them any other path than fighting with each other over gaining power.
Yeah, because “Operation Chaos” worked so well last time around. It gave us Obama, who we were assured “could NOT” win.
Yeah, it sure would be. And Howie Carr would do a war/victory dance.
Y'know, I could vote for Sanders to go directly against her, but a vote that isn't for Warren still helps diminish her percentage.
Also, I've been thinking about that 15% floor for delegate assignment. I thought that with a well split field it wouldn't make any difference. But, its turning out to be a real threshold. Candidates that score below 15% in any primary get zip. They really get cut out. That makes it a lot easy for a plurality front runner like Bernie to pile up the delegates.
Crazy Bernie came out of both debates unscathed. Even the all out attack by the Deep State Media in the last few weeks doesn’t seem to have had any effect.
What a delightful mess!
Cast your vote based on the 15% rule. The democrats changed their primary systems to proportional voting after the last election. So every candidate gets delegates based on their percentage. They put in a floor of 15%. To get delegates they must have at least 15% of the vote. My theory is that we want a contested convention with as many candidates as possible with delegates. If we vote for the candidate polling nearest to 15% in our state before the primary we can keep as many of them alive as long as possible. I say nearest to 15% because all polls have a margin of error. So a candidate polling 16.5% might only get 14.9% of the vote and fail to get delegates. By keeping as many of these losers alive as possible, hopefully all the way to the convention, we create disunity and distrust. Imagine if we could keep six candidates viable, Crazy Bernie, Mayor Pete, Liawatha, Bite Me, Klobuchar and mini-mike. The convention goes to a second or third vote. Deals get made, hopefully, several of them get screwed over. Disunity and an even bigger victory in November.
My district in Texas has no primary races of interest to me therefore I can indulge in this. By all means though if you have a chance to vote against the GOPe in the primary that is where you need to cast your ballot
I quickly looked at the results on 538 and the following would be closest to 15% in each state:
MA - Mayor Pete
SC - Steyer
TX - Warren
You have said that Biden is the establishment candidate, that he has dementia, that he’s a joke, and that he belongs in an assisted living facility. All true!
As the year wears on, he falls apart, looking worse and worse every month. Despite his prior popularity as a moderate and a black favorite, I think his accelerating dementia will make him a laughing stock by Election Day. Also, the purpose of voting for him is simply to push for a brokered convention. I doubt that either Bernie or Biden would come out as the candidate from that. Would it be a Hillary/Bloomberg ticket? Good chance. And no, I’m not frightened by that prospect. Maybe it would drive Bernie to a 3rd party effort.
They should actually vote for one of the zombie candidates like Tom Styer.
Ensure a brokered convention.
I was going to vote for Bernie in the Texas primary. However, a combination of down-ballot races (voting against John “Obama’s best buddy” Cornyn), and wanting to live with my conscience, made me mark the ballot for Trump.
No, because a net neutral of multiple candidates means the Super Delegates pick their top choice from them.
It clearly has to be Bernie and needs to be a blowout.
Isn’t Tulsi still on the Ballot even though her campaign is suspended? If we could push some of the ones staying in to build name recognition up to three or six percent each that would be great.
