While Joe Biden will win South Carolina’s First-in-the-South Primary, things look bleak for him after that. Things look worse for Mini-Mike and Elizabeth Warren. That’s because Berniementum is gaining strength. Bernie leads by a wide margin in California, leads comfortably in Texas and leads narrowly in Elizabeth Warren’s home state of Massachusetts.

The key word in that paragraph is leads. If Bernie gets three-fourths of California’s 415 delegates, he’ll become the odds-on-favorite to win the nomination. If he wins with a solid margin in Texas, that strengthens his position. Defeating Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar in their home states, which seems likely at this point, would virtually eliminate their path to the nomination. Think of it like Hillary after the networks called Wisconsin for President Trump. At that point, pundits started talking about Hillary’s path to victory after spending most of the night wondering what Trump’s path to victory would look like. Check out this polling from RCP’s page:

After Bernie wraps up the nomination, expect President Trump to hit him with a barrage of ads from which Bernie will never recover from. Make no mistake about this. Bernie is a dead man walking. Check this out:

The Nevada Caucus has come and gone, but the debate leading to it had some rather worrisome tidbits if you’re a worker in the Rust Belt. The Democrats just hate you. That’s all we can gather from their agenda, especially Sen. Bernie Sanders.

If he isn’t bellowing about health care, it’s climate change. We’re less than a decade away from all of us dying from global warming, according to the Vermont senator. So, that means we have to act now. Not tomorrow, not after breakfast—now! We’re all going to die…unless we do exactly what the Democrats want on this issue, which is typical. And in doing so, Sanders, like his former rival Hillary Clinton, may have had his own coal miner moment. You might remember from 2016 that the former first lady and two-time presidential loser promised to put a lot of coal miners out of business if elected president.

Bernie must win back Hillary’s ‘blue firewall’ states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan while holding onto the states that Hillary won. Winning back Pennsylvania and Michigan while losing Wisconsin puts Trump right at 270 electoral votes. Killing fracking and mining kills those states’ economies, which means Bernie loses those states and his shot at the White House.

There’s no question whether President Trump will hit Bernie on this issue. In 2016, he told those voters that he considered them the forgotten men but that he’d promise to never forget them while he was president. President Trump has kept that promise.

People wonder what happens if the Coronavirus will hurt President Trump. It might if they don’t handle things properly. If the NIH and CDC respond quickly and the various agencies handle things properly, then people will realize that this was just something that was beyond President Trump’s ability to control. If President Trump and VP Pence make the right decisions administratively, they’ll benefit from those right decisions.

It isn’t like people will suddenly say ‘I’m abandoning President Trump’s policies. He’s just too prosperous.’

  • Chad Q says:

    Bernie will be a disaster for the democrats and they will broker Biden or Bloomberg at the convention. If Trump wanted to be even proactive than he has already been, he’d give people the stats on flu deaths worldwide and say that while we want to take corona seriously, the flu kills 300,000 – 600,000 people worldwide each year and no one bats and eye at those numbers so let’s all calm down. Wash your hands, don’t fly to Asia, Italy, or Iran and stop eating bats.
