What does this even mean? She said anyone who didn’t vote in the poll in time could comment their vote. 

It was @Rodja I believe, just voicing support for Massachusetts after having already voting for it in the poll itself.

 

At least that's what I believe you mean, and whom you meant?

Didn't see that comment (I have a bad habit of skimming posts). In that case I vote for Texas which still leads to a tie-break.

Also it's a reference to Bernie's supporters not actually showing up to vote for him. Trump and Bernie both drove larger and more passionate crowds than their colleagues but when it came down to voting day only Trump's supporters showed up.

Also I just remembered that Bernie is running again. Weird. Curious how he's not getting the John McCain treatment considering he's going to be 79 years old on election day (10 more than Trump on election day, and 8 more than John McCain in 2008.

I actually do think there are people within the Democratic party who are voicing concerns about Sanders' age. I do also think that those some people mention it about Biden as well. Perhaps not as extreme as McCain in 08, but McCain was also the nominee, neither of those men are the nominee yet to be fair.

Sanders won't beat Trump but that prediction is def a pipe dream.

A self admitted democratic socialist that is fed up with the lefts losing strategies examines this stuff here. 

 

He has several other videos where he explains that dems took back the house with moderates. 

 

And Socialism would backfire in a lot of blue states, sure Bernie with VT, DC, MN, CA, and NY, but thats about it. Even Massachusetts rejected a Dem Socialist for Charlie Baker, hence why Warren has been distancing herself fron that wing of the party. The more AOC and Bernie talk the more people leave the Dem Party and the higher Trumps odds of getting reelected become.

I just believe in honesty. Tell people that your economic policies are going to create massive debt and propel us farther into the shitter. But thats ok with you because as long as people are taken care of then its morally justified for the economy to be bad. 

 

I would at least have some respect for AOC and Bernie if they took this approach. But I have 0 respect for them for lying about it.

Probably. I was/am on mobile so it was/is difficult to go back and check.

Boy are you wrong a lot for a “political consultant”. No democratic socialist even ran for governor of Massachusetts.

When do Bernie supporters not show up to vote for him? He did much better than expected in the 2016 primary and won his last senate election easily.

I for one, love that in the end it had to go to a number generator. 

Thanks for doing these, they're fun.

Thanks next one will be hopefully started monday. I'm glad it turned out the way it did I'm trying to find ones that aren't so partisan as it leads to less participation!

I'm as confused as you are - unemployed people should have the time to do just about anything.

He can't prove it, or most of his bold, vitriolic, incendiary claims. He's talking out his ass - like most other people who use the cartoon frogs - the stupidest, most ridiculous, most shameful, and least respectable and with the least credential political symbol ever devised, for an equally stupidest, ridiculous, shameful, and lacking respectable credential "political movement" (and I use the term "political movement" VERY lightly).

Keep in mind I didnt say Bernie supporters were unemployed. In fact many I know are hard workers who simply cant grasp economics.

Ishan, whom I was answering, was quoting an uninformed, slanderous stereotype by @ThePotatoWalrus. Also, please desist with your absolutist, objectivist, and "single-truth" view of economics. Just because people have economic priorities different than yours and believe government money would be better spent in ways you don't agree with, or don't adhere to the ruinous, self-destructive, short-sighted, self-cannibalizing, sociopathic, and plutocratically-controlled corporatist system doesn't mean they "simply can't grasp economics."

Many people dont understand economics. If that is the reason yoi support AOC and Bernie then I am sorry but you dont understand economics, however a discussion of the other issues can be warranted. I am a firm beleiver that peoples political ideologies stem from personal events. And you may be pro abortion for example because your daughter was raped. In that case, lets discuss that issue because maybe we can teach each other something. On economics there is no gray area. Now both parties and both ideologies have it wrong, though the GOP is closer to correct.

Wait, wait, wait. First, when did I say I supported AOC? Or, am I just assumed to based on economic ideological "lumping" and it's assumed nothing else matters to me? Also, economics, like all social sciences, is NOT binary and cut and dry, and cannot EVER be as such in any constructive discussion. And, no, the GOP is NOT closer to "correct," - not that there is even a "correct." As a social worker, I work every day with very obvious, glaring flaws, faults, and weaknesses of the economic system promoted by the GOP - and it gets ugly. And, no, it's not the fault of "liberals" and "socialists," - it is because of the rampant greed, sloppiness, inefficiency, inequity, and callaceness of the captains of industry and the members of government they literally BRIBE to kowtow to their rapacious agendas, even utterly ignoring their own constituents.
