2016 primaries and General Election (Bernie Sanders Edition)

Recommended Posts

Does Sanders - a socialist, Independent Senator from Vermont - have the grass-roots support to propel a bid and take the Democratic nomination - and then the Presidency?

Hopefully, if I play the cards correctly. Wish me luck everyone and I shall keep you informed along the way. 

Note: I changed Sanders Platform with the campaign editor to my political views, :) I also will be playing on Hard, I'll post the platform soon. 

Should I update you on a day to day basis or a weekly basis? Please feel free to comment and tell who you are rooting for, even if it is for my opponent, also feel free to just have a discussion on this scenario as it plays out.

So instead of saying each thing that happened in single day, I should just summarize the week instead?

It's just easier to do it on a weekly basis since a lot of the daily events are very minor, and it's less work for you as well. That way, the reader gets the important bits but not everything :) 

Anyway, I look forward to seeing how this plays out! Good luck!

If Clinton ends up handily defeating you, you can always try and bribe her into giving you the VP slot, given there is no contested convention. Then, you could continue in the general even if you win the nomination in itself.

Johnson's support seems to be growing, His message must really be motivating the voters. But we have a long way until the first caucus/primary, will things change then?
