  1. Bernie is leading the Midwest states vs trump… Noboddry else is..

    • @Rudy Penza . What makes you believe a high turnout is bad downballot? Here’s my argument.
      More hillary supporters crossed over on Obama than Bernie supporters crossed over. Obama swept. Hillary lost everything. What makes you believe that Bernie is not the better candidate down ballot?

    • @Rudy Penza Biden can’t protect the down ballot Dems because he can’t get elected…. Who cares about what he would able to do, you need to worry about IF he can even win first.

    • Trump supporter.

    • @y r : Contrary to the lies you’re apparently being told, Biden is far more electable to middle America than Sanders. And that’s were you have to win. Trump will pound Sanders socialist rhetoric and really drive up the anti Dem fervor, driving up his turnout so that, at the least, it matches any turnout Sanders middle create. I say might because to date there is no indication that Sanders brings out new voters. His numbers have remained the same or dipped slightly compared to 2016. Even in New Hampshire, his neighboring state, which showed an increase in voter turnout, Sanders got fewer votes than 2016. Most of the voter increase came in districts win by Buttegeig and Klobuchar, not Sanders.

  2. BERNIE all the way to november 2020

  3. Look how hard these guys are trying to put support behind Biden. It’s hilarious at this point.

    Ari, you know better. Maybe if Bernie wasn’t constantly smeared on network TV these numbers wouldn’t be as skewed as you present. Considering the constant negative press Bernie gets it is amazing he has the traction he has not goes to show he has a message the people want to hear. People are fed up with money influencing their politicians. Bernie is the one candidate who is clean in that area. And if you say Bloomberg is also clean in that area you are mistaken. Sure, Bloomberg hasn’t been bought, but he is the one who is doing the buying, he is the corrupting influence.

      You cant win an argument with conspiracy theories. He does know better – better than you. Because numbers dont lie and thats all he reports.

    • Trump got nothing but negative press during his run for president and he’s president. There went your theory.

  5. Do this again after tomorrow

    The good and the will of the people VS billionaire oligarchy. #StillSanders

    This isn’t even journalism. Bernie raised $47 million in February.

    • Cable “news” stations has a lot of talking heads with very, very few journalists who reports actual news.

      A newscaster is lawfully bound by ethics, morals and laws. Talking heads, like op heads, are not. So they can spin the truth, twist it, lie and lean it.

      Cable news networks are more political now. So, we really have to research. However, a couple of talking heads seems to have integrity and honesty, but I still check their sources. ✌️

    • Trump troll.

    • @Peter Nolan
      Seriously?

  8. And they said you can’t fund a grass roots movement without billionaires.

    Another way of saying Biden has the best ROI is that he is significantly underperforming in fundraising, and he’s riding on name recognition and Obama’s coattails.

    • Money doesn’t make everyone happy and money isn’t everything, or you could buy anything… Martin Luther King ,”Do not judge a person by the color of his skin judge a person by his character”.

    • Politics is a business sadly. There is separation of Church and State. There should be separation of Business and State. In reality they both are not separated as stated in the Constitution. Backsliding like an alcoholic Baptist.

  10. uhh is it because biden spent a lot of his money on fancy ritz carlton hotels and private jets??

  12. this is pretty unfair -_-

  13. All I know is when you ask a President where his father was born and can’t trust he will tell you the truth… HE’S GOTTA GO!!!

    Question is who’s money is it?
    Wall street or small donation from suppoters.

  15. Can you imagine all the good all that wasted money could have bought.

    Caucus states are bad samples for ROI. Shoulda used vote % if they cared.

  17. “We’re Journalists”. Ha, ha, ha……..Coorperate shills you mean?

  18. 2028: Jeff Bezos becomes president by purchasing the 26 most populous states and claiming their electoral votes for himself.

    Yeah, sure .. your Establishment is sure trying hard to get rid of Senator Sanders. Ain’t gonna work, Chum.

  20. Bloomberg’s votes are getting more expensive by the minute.
