CNN: Bernie Sanders is the new #1 in our 2020 Democrat rankings

That national organization built over the last four years and maintained by Sanders and his allies is more robust than anything any other candidates in the race, including Joe Biden, who's set to announce Thursday.

Sanders is likely to raise the most money of anyone in the field. He raised $18+ million in the first three months of 2019, with 84% of those contributions coming in at under $200. That was the biggest total of any 2020 Democrat. There's every reason to think he can keep it up; he raised $237 million for his 2016 race against Clinton.

His path to the nomination is the easiest to see, with Iowa's caucuses dominated by liberals and his geographic proximity to New Hampshire.

Sanders' liberalism -- once considered radical -- is now very much en vogue within the party. He's been in that space for a very long time.

I'm afraid the moment Sanders unequivocally came out for the Boston Bomber being able to vote he sank his own candidacy.

I can see the endless ad possibilities now. Stories about the most vile murderers and rapists detailing their heinous acts, followed by a line like: "Bernie Sanders thinks this person, who did such and such to this or these person(s), should be able to vote."

You may be right. Perhaps you should write him a letter. We saw this happen with Dukakis in the tank, and that advertisement from Maryland that gave it to Bush I. It would be quite powerful for Bernie to publicly change his position.

I'm not sure if he can change his position on this. I don't think it'd be perceived as "powerful"; he'd rightly be seen as a flip-flopper not grounded in principle.

I think he screwed himself, although I guess politicians have recovered from worse.

An amazingly stupid and unnecessary position for a presidential candidate to take.

I am going to write him to suggest that he do so loudly and publicly, and hope that you will do so also. I do largely agree with you.
