    Tulsi and Yang are moderates? what?

  3. CNN just refuses to understand logic or democracy.

  4. The idea that u would include Gabbard and yang with the moderates is laughable

    The seething animosity for sanders here is laughable

    • GP Trump team said ‘No contacts with Russia’
      FACT , 149 seperate contacts with Russia and or proxy Wikileaks. Collusion is NOT a crime , obstructing justice ‘10 counts’ is.

    • @David Sargent *Russia an USA relationship in a nutshell*
      Russia finally makes a good coffee machine, and they have good coffee beans to go with it.
      America plans to steal said coffee machine.

    • Concordski.

      We know about the Russian collusion with killery and her buddies in the CIA ,FBI .
      And hundreds like Seth rich and Anthony Bourdain murdered to be kept quiet . So thanks we don’t need to hear about fake crap from the crooks . Projecting is the CIA’s favorite tactic
      And you libtards are and are going to be continued to be crushed .

  6. *You really think that’s how election works? Adding losers numbers together to see if that beats progressive?*

      DNC Blog he doesn’t know that Warren’s support is mostly from white professional neolibs, and Biden’s is from older working class multi-race voters, Sanders is the second choice for almost all working class voters, who far outnumber white professionals

    • ‘Progressives’ are in fact regressive in nature, as they embrace the tired and old failure that is socialism.

      Jacob Klein yep, FDR was a total failure! 😂😂😂

    • @Unmasking Fools OOHHHH SHHUUTTT UPPPP

    • @Unmasking Fools Bernie’s policies aren’t even socialist unless everyone considered FDR a socialist in 1944. That man won 4 straight times before he died in office, and he helped the nation get through the great depression and WW2, making America the richest nation on earth and the world’s de facto superpower ever since.

      Here’s what he proposed in 1944, shortly before he passed away:

      Via wikipedia:

      “The Second Bill of Rights was proposed by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt during his State of the Union Address on Tuesday, January 11, 1944. In his address, Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognise and should now implement, a second “bill of rights”. Roosevelt argued that the “political rights” guaranteed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights had “proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness”. His remedy was to declare an “economic bill of rights” to guarantee these specific rights:

      Employment, food, clothing, and leisure with enough income to support them

      Farmers’ rights to a fair income

      Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies

      Housing

      Medical care

      Social security

      Education”

      Sounds a hell of a lot like what Sanders proposes, doesn’t it? Sanders is maybe not as progressive as FDR was 76 years ago. I guess only Bernie voters like making America great again. Ironic

  7. Just When You Think Finally A Good Story Acknowledging Bernie … 10 Seconds After Saying He’s Winning Here’s How He’s Also Losing … The Bias Is Really Mind Boggling

    • @DyesubDave who do you think owns the major networks? The people Bernie is exposing! Elections in this country have been bought and paid for since the newspaper was invented, and now someone they didnt buy actually has a chance and they are shitting their pants.

    • ​@J Groovy News analysis does not include making the utterly baseless claim that Gabbard and Yang votes would go to moderate candidates. Gabbard quit a leadership post in the DNC to support Bernie in 2016. Smerconish knows that but doesn’t let it influence his analysis. Calling Bernie the front runner is just acknowledging an undeniable fact. Occasionally MSM pundits have to acknowledge facts to maintain any semblance of credibility. Btw both Gabbard and Yang will probably endorse Bernie long before the convention.

    • Frank Elizalde You sounds like an idiot, just like everyone else that compares the US and Venezuela. Actually take some time, read, and get educated on why Venezuela is having their problems. Two vastly different economies. The US doesn’t have all their eggs in one basket.

  8. Pretty thin stuff CNN. You had me at Bernie deserves to be winning btw.

    High budgets for this completely biased trash reporting.

  12. Wow, since when was Yang a moderate`You need a math lesson! Anything to put down the will of the people.. We need politicals that are not paid off by corporations!

  13. Bernie Sanders 2020! You’ll back him when your ratings plummet!

  14. Every 8(ish)min vid about the primaries:
    0:00 – 0:03 bernie
    0:04 – 3:56 klomentum
    3:57 – 5:45 bootyjudge
    5:46 – 1:45:23 why hillary was the right choice in 2016 and the dnc didn’t cheat! (Spoiler alert she wasn’t and they did and they’re doing it again to push out bernie… again!)

      They’re going to screw Bernie again and when they do it’s going to affect turnout and Trump will win again. They’re sabotaging themselves.

    • @Timothy Crosby they would rather trump be president than Bernie. If you think the people who foot the bill for the dnc care about you and me, you are delusional, you see.

    • @Duane johnson Preach brother!! It’s the Investor Class against the rest of us D and R are just letters.

  15. They’re actually trying to paint Sanders as if he’s against unions. 🙄 He is endorsed by more unions than any of them.

  16. YOU CANT JUST ADD UP VOTE TOTALS THIS ISNT HOW ELECTIONS WORK

    • It’s how Mike Moore does it.
      He adds all woman , youngsters etc then claims victory for Bernie

    • David Sargent Bernie won the popular vote in both states. After Hillary lost democrats whined about the electoral college and how she won the popular vote. Saying she should be president. They have done it in past losses as well to republicans. You can’t have it both ways. Bernie won both states using the same metric they have been arguing for.

    • Other Democrats are already printing “I’m not a Socialist” T-shirts just in case Bernie wins so they can keep their jobs. Thanks.

  17. “he is the frontrunner BBUUTTT let me curb your enthusiasm”

  18. I thought finally CNN is going to acknowledge that Bernie is the legitimate frontrunner instead they gave us a disgraceful false math how Bernie is not wow the establishment is really out to get Bernie.

  19. Another day, another puppet saying “Bernie is winning, here’s how we hope he will lose”

    • Bernie won’t fight for you… He keeps proving that.

    • Deborah Freedman | February 15, 2020 at 4:44 PM | Reply

      Pete’s winning.

    • Karen Fitzpatrick | February 15, 2020 at 5:03 PM | Reply

      Yet, THE PEOPLE speak and Sanders keeps on gathering momentum and earns another win. These reporters can’t ignore the facts much longer without looking like complete fools. #Bernie2020 Straight line, clear wins, without all the political BS manipulations and projections the DNC is throwing in. One person-one vote and Sanders wins the Presidency! The moderate Democrats have less faith in Sanders beating Trump than the Trump campaign itself, because they realize Sanders will demolish Trump in the Presidential election. Trump himself has stated the Social Democratic platform will be hard for him to beat, because it supports the people and not only the rich, as his Autocratic Republican government does. The DNC NEEDS to hear what the other side is most worried about and less about working to maintain their “Moderate” stance that lost the last election.
