Projected wins are not a victory. Less than 1% of actual votes are reported, and exit poll articles contain some special gems like, “Biden captures 79% of ‘very liberal voters’ in Missouri.”

So you’re grasping at straws too?

Ya’ll got to pull on your adulting pants and get behind Biden, looks like Biden is our only hope at getting Cheetolini out. Vote Blue Vote Blue VOTE BLUE! [even if it hurts to]

Yeah, Biden has it pretty much in the bag. For some reason the voters decided the best candidate is the one that reminded them the most of John Kerry. Democratic voters just can’t stop making the same mistake over and over again.

I’m hunkering down for a repeat of 2004 where low voter enthusiasm allows the incumbent to capture and even larger margin of victory.

Voice of wisdom. As mediocre and possibly dangerous as Biden is, he’s probably going to win the primary and probably going to be the US’s only shot. Hate him as much as you want, he’s still leagues ahead of the other guy.

Or maybe we could drum up some enthusiasm for Joe online and try to get him elected, eh? I love the BB community, but I’m really disappointed in the hate I’ve read in the past few days. People voted and the majority want Biden… do you guys want to ignore the majority?

Yes, he is no tRump, but the potential is there, unfortunately.

Disappointed? Really! Well how do think the rest of us feel with the entire situation? High-Horsing right now isn’t what the USA needs. Help get the vote out.

Darn straight. When my stubborn optimism has no legs left to stand on, then it’s time to bow to our media titan overlords. Not a second before.

Things were very different in 2004 than they are in 2020. As horrible as W was, the nation wasn’t bursting headlong into an existential crisis.

I’m hoping even if Biden is the nominee that the stakes of 4 more years of Trump weigh heavily on the minds of the disappointed Bernie Bros and others who didn’t get their preferred candidate (and I say this as someone that voted for Bernie in my state’s primary today).

This. Here’s where the cold hard fact sets in. The fact that the Democratic voter population is 60% (shudder!!) - “centrist”.

Some primaries allow everyone to vote regardless of political party. Republicans who voted in these states largely prefer Biden.

It helps with Trump’s narrative that the Dem establishment has it out for Crazy Bernie.

I don’t dislike the guy, really.
It’s that I think he is an opportunist and may well be fading.
And Sanders and Warren are much closer to me in policy.

I was really hoping that 45 left a hole just the size and shape of either
Warren or Sanders.

He threatened to assault and batter a voter.

I’m done with rich, white, tough guy bullshit.
