Joe Bidens fall from grace has allowed the likes of Buttigieg and Bloomberg to rise, the latter looking the most likely to make a serious challenge for the top Dem to take on Trump. I don’t expect Bernie Sanders to keep up his recent good results, and Buttigieg, Warren and the others will disappear from the race very soon. Bloomfield and Trump have similarities in that they are often crude, arrogant, and upset many, however, Trump has made a huge difference to salaries, employment in general and he would see off Bloomberg, whose detractors would probably outnumber the anti Trump camp.

A completely divided party with much in-fighting. The Sanders crowd would never vote for him as he represents all that they detest.

So you suggest that Sanders voters would rather vote for Trump, or that they will abstain from voting?
Also, I think that you are exaggerating. Every party has at least a degree of party discipline. Remember Bernie and Hillary in 2016. Cohesion will kick in when it is needed, believe me.

I’m not suggesting that at all. Sanders voters will never vote for Trump. They have an enthusiasm for a movement to radically change this country. If Sanders is not the nominee, I’m suggesting they will be disenfranchised and stay away from voting. I doubt many will vote for the billionaire. He is a huge part of what they hate and they will be angry he bought his way to nomination over their candidate. Remember, this all comes down to math. If you lose a few million Bernie voters under the age of 45 (his biggest fan base) then it’s over.

But the powers to be will do anything to stop Sanders?
