1. Bernie is raising way more money than anyone else.
2. Bernie has a humongous number of small donors, who can be counted on to keep making small donations over and over again.
3. Berne is likely once again to do well in Iowa and New Hampshire.
4. California, the great whale, has moved its primary to March 3, Super Tuesday. Bernie will have the money to compete big time in California [which begins early voting on the day of the Iowa caucuses!] and in Texas, which also has moved its primary to Super Tuesday.
My own view is that Bernie desperately needs to dramatically increase his support in minority communities, and not just among the young. If he can do that, I think he could slaughter Trump in the general. A Sanders Harris ticket might be ideal.
