    Don't get me wrong. I wouldn't bet $1 on him getting the nomination. But, he can't be counted out yet.

    I don't think Bernie will throw his supporters behind another candidate. He and his flock will just be bitter again.

    Frankly that’s how I feel about all these candidates at this point.

    I don't agree, but that's still way more than enough for me.

    Yeah, I had to sit down and go through the top four to reach my decision of who to support in the primaries. I’m not sitting on the sidelines this year.

    I also swore that even if my candidate wasn’t nominated, I would support whomever ran against Trump.

    Yeah but if Bernie or Liz just has one other thing going for them, that tops Biden. IMO

    I’ll vote for whoever it is if course, but dismissing Bernie was what led to 2016.

    If Bernie wins he will get my vote period. Bernie will be their fighting until the end. Don't count him out. This field sucks for Democrats and my confidence in taking out the dumbcumbant isn't very high right now. There is just no superstar type person which means his is going to be a very tough uphill battle.

    Just get on with the primary already.

    I would vote for my next door neighbor over Trump. I am not a fan of Bernie but will vote for him if he wins.

    Technical Bernie is not "D" and that would be a vote for "I" but I get your drift and agree. F....Trump.

    For me:

    Warren
    Sanders
    Klobuchar
    Bloomberg
    Buttigieg
    Biden

    This is my order of preference, not a ranking of perceived electability. I also think the electability argument has a Hillary-sized blind spot: Biden polls best against Trump at the moment, but cynically I can see him losing to Trump in a similar fashion, with all the same scapegoating after the fact.

    The bottom three are relatively interchangeable for me. Mayor Pete has the chance to be the most inspiring, but there something Bill Clinton-esque about him, in that I can picture him deciding to run for president at 9 years old and everything since then has been part of his long game.
