🗳🇺🇸1. ¡Feliz día de #DemDebate! Hoy, Joe BIDEN vs. Bernie SANDERS en el primer (¿y último?) 1 vs. 1 de estas primarias demócratas que ya parecen ganadas por el exvicepresidente.

En este hilo seguiré el desarrollo del debate con vídeos y pequeñas valoraciones. Let's go! 👇🏼
🗳🇺🇸2. Empezamos con #coronavirus. ¿Qué le pueden decir los candidatos a los ciudadanos en una crisis así? Biden empieza hablando de lo que hay que hacer: arreglar los problemas de test, apoyar a los hospitales y ayudar a los ciudadanos a nivel económico.
🗳🇺🇸3. Sanders dice que hay que parar ya a Trump por la desinformación que "está confundiendo" a la población. Sanders dice que intentará sacar la sanidad universal adelante como presidente, pero que lo importante AHORA es que los ciudadanos no tengan miedo a ir a los hospitales.

#CAPrimary: There were massive lines, almost all #Bernie voters. How did they pull that off? Registered Dems got the ballot with the presidential candidate and didn’t have to wait in line. So who’s waiting in line? People who got those crazy NPP ballots!…
Here's the trick. NPP voters had to wait in line to exchange their ballots for a Crossover one. And if you don't have your ballot with you, they give you a provisional ballot.… #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #SuperTuesday
In 2016, #California gave out 1.3 million provisional ballots — that’s half of the provisional ballots in the entire U.S. Then they disqualified 407,000 of those ballots.… #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary #BernieSanders

#Biden supporter California Secretary of State, #AlexPadilla, wins “Vote Suppressor of The Year.” By sheer numbers of ballots disqualified—with young and LatinX voters suppressed—Padilla makes Katherine Harris and Brian Kemp look like Thomas Jefferson.…

#SuperTuesday states won by Sanders in 2016: CO, MN, OK, VT. Same states won in 2020: CO, VT.

Sanders vote share in 2016-->2020:
IA: 50%-->27%
NH: 60%-->26%(!!)
NV: 47%-->41%
CA: 46%-->34%
UT: 79%-->35%
VT: 86%-->51%
I forgot CO: 59%-->36%. If this person were named anything other than Sanders, the calls to drop out would be deafening. MAYBE WE CAN LEARN FROM 2016?? #DropOutBernie
So I've got this template ready to go for tomorrow night:
Sanders vote share in 2016-->2020:
MI: 50%-->??
WA: 73%-->??
MO: 49%-->??
MS: 17%-->??
ID: 78%-->??
ND: 64%-->??
Abroad: 69%-->??

Anyone wanna venture any guesses?

THREAD: Too few voting machines. Technical failures of aging equipment. Insufficient training of election workers. Long lines that only grew.

Here’s how Harris County's election day fumbles disproportionately affected communities of color. #tx2020
2/ Excessive wait times for voting in Texas on #SuperTuesday were not limited to one area.

But Texas Southern University, a historically black university in Houston, easily saw the worst of it.
3/ Wait times for voters in the queue at @texassouthern extended past the four-hour, then five-hour, then six-hour marks.

Some spent nearly an entire workday waiting in line, almost seven hours after polls closed.

¿Quién es esa mujer de traje blanco que está la última en la carrera por las primarias demócratas muy muy muy muy por detrás del Joe Biden y Bernie Sanders?

Se trata de la congresista por Hawái de 38 años Tulsi Gabbard. ➕👇
Esta es la pregunta que tal vez muchos espectadores se hagan en el próximo debate, pues si se mantienen las reglas, la candidata podría ocupar el tercer podio en un espectáculo que se espera que sea un cara a cara entre @JoeBiden y @BernieSanders. ➕…
Si no te suena el nombre, quizás la recuerdes en los primeros debates (entre los otros 20 candidatos) luciendo su uniforme, un traje de chaqueta blanquísimo que algunos periodistas han llegado a describir como un atuendo de líder de una secta.…

BREAKING: #ElizabethWarren is leaving the race. I am in mourning for our nation. Her exit is clear evidence of the level of trauma we have suffered over the last 3yrs; causing us to cling to the familiar, stunting our capacity to dream, limiting faith.…
We MUST remove Trump. Our democracy will not hold another 4 yrs of the Trump admin, GOP Senate and white nationalist judges. The lesson of #SuperTuesday is this: To win, we MUST heed the pain of those who’ve borne the brunt of and are VOTING in the context of Trump’s terror!
REMEMBER: In the middle of terror, dreaming becomes nearly impossible.When terrorized, you literally have ONE GOAL: Make it stop.

🗳🇺🇸1. Elizabeth Warren va a anunciar que suspende su campaña a la presidencia después de poco más de un mes de resultados decepcionantes en las primarias demócratas. #presi2020…
🗳🇺🇸2. Progresista, pero creyente en el capitalismo (a diferencia de Sanders), Warren fue considerada como futura nominada demócrata al menos desde 2016, cuando descartó presentarse a la presidencia y acabó apoyando a Clinton en las primarias de aquel año.
🗳🇺🇸3. En su campaña de 2020, Warren partió con problemas entre el electorado porque eran pocos los que creían que fuera a ganarle a Trump.

Trump la llama Pocahontas desde hace años porque Warren dijo tener ascendencia nativa americana... cuando no.…

After hanging out in #Detroit's predominantly Latino neighborhood the last two days, I was struck by how so many people kept telling me that they're all supporting @BernieSanders and that people should step back for a minute and wait until #MichiganPrimary is over next Tuesday.
These voters, all these Latinos (even older ones), about 10-15 of them, shared a general view that #SuperTuesday had them thinking of what their vote will be, but that they will at least vote on Tuesday but they are not sure if they will vote in November.
They all said that @JoeBiden has a lot of work to do to repair his relationship with Latinos, yes, even in Southwest Detroit. They were adamant about Obama/Biden admin deportation legacy. Remember, Detroit is a border city.

Is Bernie Sanders revolution real? Is voter turnout up? Is he driving it? Or, is it general Dem enthusiasm?

I compiled the numbers from the 2016 & 2020 primaries. I'll add to thread for each state as they hit 98% reporting, so we can figure it out together.

Wall Street was feeling both attacked and paralyzed by the leading Democrat, and some were leery of supporting Trump. Then #SuperTuesday happened.
.@JoeBiden is regarded by finance executives as a moderate thinker and known quantity people can get behind. His supporters this cycle have included @blackstone's Jon Gray and @GoldmanSachs's Steve Scherr.
Even the billionaire Leon Cooperman, who had been supporting @MikeBloomberg, had kind words. “I’m happy to see the country is not inclined towards electing a communist or a socialist," he told me.

Super Tuesday, o fio. Vamos lá: só conseguir parar agora, e muita coisa já foi dita, então farei alguns breves comentários nesse fio sobre #SuperTuesday ontem🧶
1) Dinheiro é importante mas ñ é tudo (viu Bloomberg?). Biden gastou meros $89 mil no Texas, q é a mesma coisa q nada. Mal tinha uma campanha no Estado. A campanha mais rica, depois de Bloomberg, era a de Sanders, q gastou $3,7 milhões lá. Bloomberg gastou 52 MILHÕES. Biden levou
2) Mais do q nunca, ficou clara a dinâmica das primárias, onde os Estados votam em momentos diferentes e não todos ao mesmo tempo. O resultado em um Estado afeta o próximo. Mta gente q começou a acompanhar política 🇺🇸 recentemente, parece q agora começa a entender isso

Systems of power have self-reinforcing mechanisms to maintain their power.

Corporate Dems, the entire political apparatus & the MSM will do anything to stop any movement that poses a real threat.

There are 3 components to winning real change. #SuperTuesday vs. May Day 1/14
First, we have to really believe systemic change is possible. Like *really* believe. If we don’t, we’ve already lost.

They want us to feel hopeless. Hopelessness leads to apathy, complacency & inaction. That’s exactly what they want. 2/14

If you’re feeling hopeless or despair, that’s okay. Take time for self-care. Find what inspires you about humanity.

I like to read about the history of social change. Abolition movements, civil rights, women’s rights. Labor movements. LGBTQ movements.

What inspires you? 3/14

Some of you will hate to hear this: This man did better than Elizabeth Warren in 9 of the 14 states of #SuperTuesday h/t @rerutled

You saw and heard the two of them on the debate stage. You know who is a better candidate.

The reason begins with MISOGYNY…
There is misogyny among socialists, progressives, and centrists.

There is misogyny among Republicans and conservatives and their internal sub-groups.

The United States is a misogynist country.

The way Warren has been treated is a reminder

One thing that stuck out to me in Texas: Many of the older black voters I spoke with said they “know” Biden. One woman said “I just know what to expect from him, not so much the others.” It’s a level of pragmatism that went into their voting decisions on #SuperTuesday.
It’s also worth noting that older generations of African American voters can be much more socially conservative than people would think— which is why you’re seeing them back a moderate candidate. That’s why the generational gap, experts told me, is key to watch.
What’ll be interesting is what happens next week in a midwestern state like Michigan, that also has a large black population — namely in Detroit. Support for candidates has been across the board here but the real test will be at the polls.

So, what happened last night?
“Joseph R. Biden Jr. won in states where he didn’t campaign. He won in states where he didn’t have offices. He won in states where he was overwhelmingly outspent... He won in states where rivals had a better organization.” 1/…
My first thought was: How can America choose a man who didn’t really even campaign and arguably lost every debate—even graded on a curve?
My first response was: This shows how profoundly patriarchal we are as a nation. And I still believe this. 2/

But, I don’t think Biden’s wave was fundamentally abt patriarchy. Leading Black womxn across the US threw their weight behind #ElizabethWarrenforPresident. I was one of them. Yet, Biden won overwhelming support frm Southern Black women—who tend to be matriarchal. 3/ #imlistening

Bernie Sanders comme Joe Biden, les 2 principaux candidats démocrates à l’investiture pour affronter Donald Trump en novembre, soutiennent le #GreenNewDeal. Décryptage d’un plan qui pourrait changer en profondeur les #EtatsUnis. #SuperTuesday…
Qu’est-ce que le #GreenNewDeal?

C'est un plan d'action pour que les #EtatsUnis atteignent l’objectif mondial «zéro émission nette» de gaz à effet de serre avant 2050 par la mise en place d’un réseau électrique national fonctionnant avec 100% d’énergies renouvelables d’ici 2030. Image
Qui a élaboré le #GreenNewDeal?

C'est le fruit d’un travail collectif: #AOC a joué un rôle dans l’élaboration de la proposition de loi propulsée par une asso de jeunes militants écolo, Sunrise Movement, qui souhaite mettre le #climat au cœur du débat politique aux #EtatsUnis Image

Friends, #Biden had a strong #SuperTuesday. Voters spoke, and he has support across the country. No reason to deny it.

But if we set aside the horse race and the pundits' expectations game, there is good reason to be hopeful for #NotMeUs...

By definition, being anti-establishment means confronting a dominant, self-perpetuating system that control the levers of power.

I.e., as a #Bernie voter, you're automatically the underdog. Your power is through solidarity with the people.

Amazingly, a new day dawns with #Bernie one of only two viable Dem candidates out of a massive field.

#Biden is once again the frontrunner, and the entire establishment rapidly coalesced around him to stop a progressive revolution.

Bright and early, #SuperTuesday results breakdown!

Lets start with the obvious:

1. #BidenBounceback

And how it happened:

1. The party rallied
2. Demographics
3. Turnout(!)
4. the 'Losers'


16 "states" voted 1/20
14 states, 1 overseas territory and Democrats Abroad. At stake were a third of the delegates needed to win the nomination and its has been a dramatic race.

1. #BidenBounceback

Holy crap Biden had a fantastic night, only a couple of days ago his campaign looked like it was 2/20
dying. Yesterday he pulled off the most remarkable comeback in primary history.

He won in the south, he did well in the east, and he took the most interesting state: Texas. Ill break down the voters later on, but Biden absolutely surged over the past three days. I cannot

Joe #Biden ha vinto il #SuperTuesday, l'appuntamento più importante delle primarie Dem #USA. L'ex vicepresidente di Barack Obama ha vinto in almeno 9 dei 14 stati in cui si andava al voto (potrebbero diventare 10 con il Maine, dove al momento è in lieve vantaggio).
🇺🇸 Anche se lo scrutinio non è ancora concluso al 100%, possiamo infatti dare per certa la vittoria di #Biden in Alabama, Arkansas, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas e Virginia.
🇺🇸 Bernie #Sanders ha invece vinto in California, Colorado, Utah e Vermont. Infine, il miliardario Michael #Bloomberg - entrato in gioco solo nel #SuperTuesday - ha trionfato solo nei caucus che si sono tenuti nelle Samoa Americane.

Sometimes it’s hard to remember the process. So let’s ground ourselves.

We are STILL in the primary.
There are STILL delegates to be had.
There are STILL debates to be won.

The field is less noisy and there is a lot my time to dig into the issues. #SuperTuesdayResults
Here is the truth. @JoeBiden can not stand up on a stage for 60 minutes against @BernieSanders. Period.

He doesn’t have the benefit of laying back and gathering himself while 5 other people attack Bernie for him.

The real race is starting. So let’s go #NotMeUs #SuperTuesday
If you think I’m ONE policy you know that is from @JoeBiden

...I’ll wait.

Just tell me what he’s about in general...

...I’ll wait some more.

Being palatable doesn’t make you presidential...not the type of president we need now

I just hope the people see.
