33. Bernie Sanders filed to be a candidate for the Senate in 2024 -- as an independent.

I do not see him dropping out at all unless he has another myocardial infarction or worse. Our Party is just a tool to be used for him, he has almost zero loyalty.

Many of his non-DU supporters will absolutely snipe at Biden AND/OR Warren (the true Bernie Or Busters hate them both, hell they hate ALL the other Democratic candidates, even Gabbard now that she backed off full MFA and adopted a semi Pete/Biden style Medicare Choice plan.)

I expect at least a third to possibly even a half of his present, 2020 supporters (they are far less Democratic-voting, far more radical than in 2016, when he had a haemorrhage rate of around 23% or so amongst his primary voters) to either not vote for POTUS, vote Green/some ultra-minor party, write Bernie in, or go full spite-bonkers and vote Rump. I wish I were joking, but alas, I am not. The only good thing is we are talking millions less BoBers this time around.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
