In EVERY state, #Sanders has done less well in 2020 than he did in 2016, underperforming by an average 17.6%.

In Vermont, for example, he won only 50.7% of the vote in '20, a drop of 35.4% from his '16 win. / thread
#Sanders' underperformance is partly explained by his failure to get new & young voters to the polls. In nearly every primary thru early March, fewer of those voters turned out than they did in '16.

.@CNN exit polls show nearly 3% fewer voters under 30 voted in '20 than they did in '16. #Bernie Sanders needed to overperform with this demographic.

Email to #Bernie shows campaign's pollster predicted he was within 4 points of #Biden in South Carolina. 2 days later, Biden blew out SC by nearly 30 points, turning the race around.

How Sanders' run came undone: thread int.nyt.com/data/documenth…
In Jan, @ZephyrTeachout, a law prof allied w/ #Sanders, wrote an op-ed alleging #Biden had “a big corruption problem," & the campaign sent it to everyone on its large email list.

✔️ #Sanders "put a stop to it. 'It is absolutely not my view that Joe is corrupt in any way.'"
In Feb, VT Rep @PeterWelch implored #Sanders to "ease up" on his attacks of #democrats. Welch believed it "sounded exclusionary to ordinary people backing other candidates, ... a lot of voters who are just everyday voters, who decided to vote for other #Dems" (NYT 3/21).

Considering whether #Warren should endorse, I go to my favorite question for students: what would we need to know?

What would we need to know to understand whether Warren's endorsing someone would advance the goal of securing universal health care and paid leave?
2/
We would need to know if it would move any voters. Her supporters were evenly split, but we need to know if some were never Bernie/ never Biden. We could find that out; it would be harder to find out whether her supporters are likely to be moved by endorsements (I'm not).
3/
Next we need to know if Warren has a better shot at advancing her agenda w/o endorsing now. There are 3 ways this could happen.
-Biden wins plurality. Endorsement= platform bargaining chip;
-Biden better against Trump; or
-Warren endorsement hurts Bernie, somehow.

1. Long thread. Content warning: rape, suicide, torture.

YOU BETRAYED #WARREN, YOU BETRAYED ME, YOU BETRAYED ALL OF US

Highly educated colleagues who supported Sanders instead of Warren: you betrayed me.

@ewarren
2. The evidence that Sanders attracted and energized fake-left and pseudo-left segments, such as Trotskysts, marginal opportunists who blabber old Trostkyst mottos like "social democrats (or liberals, in the US) are the same as fascists" should be enough.
3. You have obtained the same Ph.D. as me. You should have known.

However, you have not been a clandestine militant on the hard left since 15 yrs old like me (1977-78). You have not been pinned down as you yelled "NO" while a "comrade" fucked you over and over again.

What is disinformation and why does it matter?

The #CoronavirusOutbreak (aka #COVID19) certainly has everyone’s attention at this moment!

Sadly it is the perfect to slip some disinfo onto the narrative and manipulate public opinion one way or another..
Let’s look at this meme: It links the COVID-19 to an immigration issue!

But they are NOT related.

This virus came into the US via travelers (mostly caucasians) who had been exposed.

🌈Viruses are blind to a persons skin color.

🌈Viruses are not stopped by a border wall.
Disinformation can also come from a fellow resister who failed to verify the source!

The tweet below echoes headlines from an Australian article. But if you read that article you realize it is reporting on info that showed up in a communist source...

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.

If #Warren gets essentially shut out today, we need some serious talks and action to combat our country's internalized misogyny. (Even if she doesn't get shut out, we need to have that conversation and action.)
Has her campaign been flawless? No. Are there very good reasons for voters to prefer other candidates? Of course. Would a male candidate with the same profile have fared better in this race? Absolutely.
This is a good place to start: nybooks.com/articles/2020/…

And this: fivethirtyeight.com/audio-features…

I was fascinated by the observation that even when Warren talks about her parents, she's much tougher on her mom than her dad. So many of us hold women in our lives to higher standards!

Can a woman win? How will #Warren beat Trump?

These are two questions I hear while canvassing, sincerely from undecided voters.

Also from sexist pundits <cough, @Morning_Joe>.

Here’s what I know:
2/ #WomenWin
The 2018 blue wave elected a record number of women to Congress.

HRC won the popular vote by millions.

HRC lost the electoral college by only 70,000 votes across 3 states.

That’s not bc she’s a woman.

...
3/ #WomenWin

Not all women will vote bc it’s time for a female president—although it is.

However, women are more reliable voters than men.

Women are also 60%-80% of campaign volunteers.

Need a ground game? (Answer: Yes.) You need women.

Let that sink in.

Q: “What is your advice to girls facing sexism in high school and college?”

A: “Persist... no matter how many times you’re told to sit down and be quiet... stand up and no matter what comes your way, promise me you will persist.”

#Warren in Seattle
Q: About hate against immigrants

A: “Immigrants don’t make this country weaker, it makes us stronger.”

Points out how Trump stokes hate and pits people against each other as a distraction against his own corruption.
“I will lead by example... I will have an administration that looks like the rest of America.”

She mentions those left behind, whose voices she will listen to.

“I WILL BE A PRESIDENT WHO WILL BE A PART OF THE HEART OF EVERY HUMAN BEING.”

@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 1/ #Warren is the smartest, the toughest, and the most likely to beat Trump. She is the world’s leading expert on medical bankruptcy so she understands both the economy and the health care system. Watch her in hearings; she can eviscerate Trump.
@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 2/ She understands people. She knows what its like to almost lose a parent and to almost lose a house. She understands what it’s like for a woman to hear a man say “she just misunderstood my joke.” She’s been a single mom and a champion debater.
@darylsturgis @therealzanetta 3/ She dropped out of school to get married, as so many women did, and she came back to become a great professor and Senator. Her life is her resume—and while there are a few books about her life, she has also written a dozen that weren’t about her at all.

1er bilan de cette primaire du #NewHampshire?
3 faits majeurs:
1. #BernieSanders vainqueur mais avec 1 marge plus faible que prévu sur #Buttigieg. Ils sortent en tête de la séquence #Iowa/#NH
2. Désastre total pour #Warren ET #Biden sous les 10%
3. #Klobuchar surgit vraiment.
RT
2) Le #NewHampshire, juge de paix de la 1ère "étape" des primaires démocrates, a rendu 1 verdict en 3 étages:
. les 3ers candidats ont chacun de quoi se réjouir.
. Il y a 2 vaincus écrasés.
. Le grupetto (désolé mais j'aime ma métaphore TDF😉) des petits candidats est écrémé.
3) Pour #BernieSanders, si la victoire est bien moins éclatante qu'en 2016 dans 1 #NewHampshire frontalier de son #Vermont d'élection, à cause d' 1 contexte différent, "a win is a win" et le contrat est rempli. Il apparaît, avec l'effondrement de #Biden, en "frontrunner" national

🇺🇸🗳️ Demain c'est le début des primaires démocrates pour désigner le candidat qui affrontera #Trump en novembre. Mais au fait, lequel de ces candidats est le plus à même de battre le Président sortant ? #thread
🇺🇸🗳️ Un premier point dans une vaste étude du #VoterStudyGroup de @democracyfund : 2016 était la première élection qui mettait aux prises deux candidats rejetés par les Américains. Ce sera la même chose en 2020, ni #Trump ni les prétendants démocrates ne passant la barre des 50%.
@DemocracyFund 🇺🇸🗳️ Dans les sondages nationaux, #Biden est régulièrement le candidat démocrate qui obtient les meilleurs résultats face à #Trump. Idem dans les principaux #swingstates, et pas seulement dans ceux de la #rustbelt où l'aspect "local" de #Biden l'aide.

ON #WARREN'S LOW BLOW

Since this will come up at the #DemDebate, I want to explain her attack on #Bernie.

When CNN leaked the story, Warren could have said: "We're friends and he was referring to the challenges women candidates face. I won't grace these leaks."

Instead...
...Warren's campaign put out a statement that effectively calls #Bernie sexist and then claims to want to move on.

The net effect is to try to damage the leading progressive in the race, which gives a big boost to the establishment wing.

Now why on earth would she do that?
People who follow me know how dedicated I am to fighting sexism. It was everything I did in 2016 and I was mocked and smeared for it when I defended Hillary.

But this isn't about sexism. It's about the incredibly questionable timing of lobbing this out there as #Bernie surges.
Read 5 tweets
Wow.

I'm deeply disappointed in #ElizabethWarren, someone I've praised repeatedly during this election.

Doing this as #Bernie surges weeks before Iowa doesn't feel right.
Let me expand:

I respect and like #Warren and have said nothing but positive things about her campaign.

Whatever conversation she and #Bernie had, my issue is with the timing. I've done politics for 20 years, including two presidentials, and I recognize a low blow.
And one last point: Anyone who knows my career and my work with Hillary knows how hard I've fought sexism in politics.

This isn't about the conversation they had, it's about the timing of releasing it, which is clearly designed to damage #Bernie.

Who does that help??

Elizabeth #Warren has just proven she cannot unify the Democratic party.

For those not aware, she attacked Senator #Sanders directly today by reviving smears from the 2016 primary and recast herself in the performative victim role of Hillary Clinton that we all found so

(1/16)
very endearing. This is the first time either Warren or Sanders attacked each other directly and given the desperation one might expect with her declining numbers, it was Warren who launched the grenade. She used an unverified and heavily disputed report of a lower level
(2/16)
volunteer canvassing script that distinguished her GE electoral coalition as "affluent and highly educated" to claim that Bernie was sending volunteers to "trash" her. Quite a stretch. She then launched into a nervously delivered pathetic 2-minute long monologue

🇺🇸🗳️ Dans pile un mois, c’est le début d'une longue et palpitante saison électorale aux #EtatsUnis avec le caucus de l’#Iowa lors duquel 14 candidats vont concourir à l'investiture du parti démocrate. #primaires
🇺🇸🗳️ Au niveau national, peu d'évolutions en un an de campagne :

➡️#Biden reste en tête

➡️Les candidats de l’aile gauche #Sanders et #Warren le suivent à distance

➡️#Buttigieg est le seul autre candidat à se démarquer, les autres faisant (pour l’instant ?) de la figuration
🇺🇸🗳️ Mais les sondages nationaux ont peu d’importance à ce stade : si un candidat crée la surprise lors d’une des premières primaires, il peut impulser une dynamique à sa campagne (le « momentum ») qui l’avantagera lors des scrutins suivants.

FOR THOSE WHO ASK:

I'm a Lebanese-American boy,
Turned war refugee,
Turned child conscript,
Turned NYU philosophy student,
Turned 90s remixer/keyboardist,
Turned anti-Bush protestor
Turned progressive blogger,
Turned Dem strategist,
Turned increasingly left & anti-establishment.
I feel warmly welcomed by the left, specifically #Bernie supporters. Which is so gratifying considering how intensely we battled in 2016.

But for those who don't know my netroots activism during the Bush-Cheney era, moving left is coming home for me. It's where I started.
And for those who ask: No, I'm not saying positive things about #Bernie to later try to convince people to back #Warren.

Yes, I like Warren, but I am increasingly drawn to the power and solidarity of the #NotMeUs movement. We will NEVER defeat the far right without mass action.

And this is why I can't with #Warren. If she wants to be a storyteller, then she can do readings at her local bookstore. Repeated holes in the story tho... 1/

I don't fault anyone who as parents try to give their child the best shot. When my dad's company moved us to the PNW, they chose the suburb with the best school district and I raised my son in the same one. You give your kid the best shot you can. But the telling of her tale 2/
makes it sound like they were the Joads, not trying to keep up with the Joneses. Own it. The tale about her mom having to take a job. How many black and other women of color didn't get to make a choice about "having to take a job"? 3/
