Posted on 02/24/2020 9:30:54 PM PST by Helicondelta
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won Saturday's Nevada caucuses decisively, after winning the New Hampshire primary and essentially tying former Mayor Pete Buttigieg for first in Iowa. So Sanders is the Democratic frontrunner, and he also leads nationally in a new CBS News/YouGov poll released Sunday, drawing the support of 28 percent of Democratic primary voters.
But Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) jumped to second place in the poll, at 19 percent followed by former Vice President Joe Biden (17 percent), former Mayor Mike Bloomberg (13 percent), and Buttigieg (10 percent).
Warren came in fourth place in the Nevada caucuses, but a large majority of Nevada Democrats cast their early ballots before Wednesday night's Democratic presidential debate, and half the respondents in the CBS poll taken Feb. 20-22, between the debate and the caucuses were most impressed with Warren's performance.

Yougov has always pumped up Warren, and suppressed Sanders.
Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Bloomberg can stay in all the way to the convention to keep Sanders below 50% of the delegates.
Destroyed Democratic party.
2020—the year the mask comes off...
Elizabeth Warren Rises To 2nd Place In National Poll After Debate
YouGov ranks first in polling accuracy. I trust them over all the other polls on your link.
There is some use for fat broads and horse faced lesbians after all.
Remember the 1912 Republican convention?
I am old—but not _that_ old. ;-)

Gonna need more popcorn.
Interesting smoke signals...
Biden is toast. A Sanders-Warren looney-left “unity ticket” (loonity ticket?) definitely looks like a possibility.
Why would we want that and how is it party time?
Anyone who’s sane just wants bernie to win it outright.
If Bernie gets less than 50% of the delegates and can’t win on the first ballot, then it will be possible for the DNC to steal the nomination from him.
That would cause an earthquake in the Democratic Party—Category 9—generational destruction—third party breakaway.
Result: Trump/Republican down-ticket landslide.
“but in this case the nomination will be so contested”
We’ll see. The money markets predict Bernie will win every primary except Alabama. I want to see the democrats try to take the nomination from him.
Two small states via caucus and Cow Hampshire, a small state with an actual vote. Roughly 100 delegates committed out of 4000 total.
Get back to me with a lineup of potential 2nd and 3rd place finishers after March 4, when the number of committed Democrats gets to about 2000. It’s pretty obvious that the Commie from Vermont will have the lead, but by how much, and who will be chasing him.
Who will be the Bull Moose candidate?
You have to look at the rules of the primaries.
The Democrats eliminated all winner take all primaries.
So even if Bernie were to win all of them, he still would not have 50% of the delegates unless he won all of them by large margins (like he had in Nevada).
In many southern states Bernie will do well to barely win and get a third of the delegates. My guess is that he will only get a quarter of the delegates in the south.
He should exceed the 50% margin in states like CA, TX, WA, OR.
My prediction is he will have somewhere between 40 and 45% of the delegates by convention time, with no-one else above 20%.
