I mean this is incredible.

He was gaining tremendous traction.

Even beating Hillary in some polls.

What happened, he blew something??

He is nowhere to be seen.

I never considered him as a serious candidate but that was way worse

Why Bernie lost his steam??

  • Handed Election to King Hillary at the DNC "Debate"
  • Joe Biden Chickened Out
  • Everyone Knows He Won't Be Nominated because of DNC Super Delegates (500+) automatically pledged to King Hillary. Bernie has none.

He's been picking up steam by pushing through two bills:

1. Marijuana decriminalization
2. Preventing Land Grabs on Reservation Land

The issue is that bills are boring unless they're Marijuana. Plus Hillary blew away that Benghazi hearing that was good for Bernie until many undecided Dems realized that the Benghazi debacle has been a partisan scheme that ended gloriously for Hillary and to the detriment of Bernie.

Sanders has always been behind Hillary in national polls. Hillary's strong showing at the Benghazi hearings erased many people's doubts about her and she benefited more than Sanders from Biden dropping out.

This question assumes he HAD steam. Have you looked at him lately? He is even too old for AARP commercials.

Bernie's supporters don't have landline phones.
They are underpolled.

They never did have landline phones - so how do we explain the loss of momentum in the last two months?

Incidentally, only about 40% of Americans live in a household without a landline - a lower than I expected.

We have to be suspicious of the polls at this point.
Bernie's strategy is a groundswell of people who don't often vote
showing up. Another possible affect is people showing up in
the open primary states just to vote against Hillary who aren't
even Democrat voters.
I wonder who the GOP would really rather face.
That can be debated.
The anti-Hillary majority of this country is being underestimated.

He is polling at the highest numbers ever, so I dont agree with that. Biden dropping out would always benefit Hillary the most, as polls without Biden showed.

The thing is, Hillary still has overwhelming support among African Americans and women. In South Carolina for example, Bernie is leading among white Democrats, but most African Americans say they support Hillary and few know much about Bernie.

If Bernie can get some black or hispanic celebrities to endorse him
it would make a big difference.
