Sanders, Trump and the Color Barrier

: February 23, 2020

After Nevada, Sanders has broke the color barrier. In 2016 Sanders was like Trump or Buttigieg or Warren in that he could only get white votes.

The way Bernie did it was that in areas that are majority black or brown, bernie essentially lets them run their own affairs. He doesn’t have white staff in those areas. Success proves him right here.

I’m not sure why Trump is complimenting Bernie. I’m not sure if it’s because he’s dumb enough to believe that he’ll have the advantage over Bernie, because he can call Bernie socialist (Trump will have long odds against Bernie) or if it’s because Putin favors Bernie (which doesn’t bother me).

I agreed with various people that Bernie might not win the primary, but I didn’t agree that if he does win, then Trump will win in a landslide. I think if he really wins this thing Trump is in danger of receiving a landslide.

He needed non-white support to lock the nomination but now he’s getting it.
Now, if bernie won the nomination but biden got all the black votes, then i’d say maybe the general would be close. but with bernie getting non-white votes, i don’t think it’s going to be close.
