The Democrats did not learn from their 2016 mistake.
They screwed over Bernie and his supporters and caused a massive backlash that helped them lose the election, and here they are nearly 4 years later doing the exact same thing.
Sanders supporters, who are seeing the writing on the wall – the game is rigged for Biden – are now saying they’ll do what they did in 2016.
They’ll stay home if a “centrist” like Biden is the nominee.
The Dem establishment absolutely hates Bernie Sanders and will do anything under the sun to make sure that he does not get the nomination. They don’t care that they’re pissing off a huge chunk of their base yet again.
Bernie Sanders supporters in Iowa are warning that a lack of enthusiasm for Joe Biden could bring the same result the nomination of another milquetoast Democrat did four years ago: electing Donald Trump.
Sanders backers fret the socialist Vermont senator, 78, is being consistently ignored and underestimated by Beltway insiders and a Washington-based press corps — the same bunch, in their view, who failed to predict Trump’s 2016 White House win and were sure Hillary Clinton, who beat Sanders for the Democratic nomination, would easily prevail.
They’re particularly steamed Sanders, a socialist who has been in Congress since 1991, isn’t getting his due though he’s proven to have staying power in public opinion and fundraising, even after suffering a heart attack last October. As of last week, he leads a tight four-horse race in Iowa ahead of the first-in-the-nation caucuses on Feb. 3, raising a record figure of $34.5 million in the final financial quarter of 2019 for a total of $96 million.

Sanders supporters are willing to “burn it all down” for Bernie and help Trump secure the win.
“I think that people will sit at home because they see establishment Democrats that don’t really care. The only thing that they bring to the table is that they’re not Trump. That is not going to drive enough people out that will get a win over Trump,” one Bernie supporter said.
President Trump chimed in on the DNC’s all-out attack on Bernie today on Twitter.
“They are rigging the election again against Bernie Sanders, just like last time, only even more obviously. They are bringing him out of so important Iowa in order that, as a Senator, he sit through the Impeachment Hoax Trial. Crazy Nancy thereby gives the strong edge to Sleepy…”
“….Joe Biden, and Bernie is shut out again. Very unfair, but that’s the way the Democrats play the game. Anyway, it’s a lot of fun to watch!”

Who will Dems blame Trump’s 2020 win on? Cambodia? Russia again? Certainly not themselves, right?
If Biden wins, Bernie supporters will blow up the 2020 election, same way they did in 2016.
But Democrats don’t care who they hurt…and they’ll spend another 4 years putting the country through torture and hell because they lost again.
