BAD, Bad move.
I think we are all underestimating the hate and ignorance that the establishment have generated.
Bernie is a REAL threat, to the President and to America.
Voting for Mini Mike and forcing a brokered convention is the best result. Bernie is almost assured the plurality of the delegates and then his thugs will burn the Democrat party down when he is denied the nomination.
Make them expose themselves on both fronts.
Bloomberg is not on the ballot in SC.
But your point is taken, Republicans in open primary states which Bernie is going to easily win anyway should probably vote for Bloomberg.
I voted for Bernie this morning knowing that Biden will win SC easily. I want Bernie to finish a respectable second. He will not have the 1991 delegates necessary to win the nomination. The Dems thru their 500 superdelegates that come in play during the second round of the nomination process will be faced with some hard choices. Thwart Bernie and risk alienating the most rabid and energetic wing of the party or select a "moderate" who will be less extreme outwardly and preserve some sort of cover for the at risk Dem House and Senate candidates.
The Dems made a fatal error of front-loading their primaries with 40% of the delegates being selected by Super Tuesday, March 3. Bernie's opponents don't have to time to mobilize an effective opposition, including winnowing down the field. Couple this with the fact that proportional allocation of delegates in all states will stop anyone from amassing more delegates than Bernie who will finish first or second in the overwhelming majority of states.
I don't regret my vote for Bernie in SC. It sows the increasing chaos in the Dem party.
