  1. I hope that the Democrats aren't looking only at defeating "Trump"! Ask Evangelicals as to their fake scriptures, "let the dead bury the dead, or the defeated worry over the defeated. Democrats need to win the Senate and then get rid of the old smelly senators (Democrats & Republicans) who have made a career of doing nothing. Overhaul the whole government system.

  2. Absolutely terrible commentary from a bunch of ignorant establishment losers.

    MSNBC is WORSE than CNN!

  3. Marguay (the only woman on the panel) is the only here who seems to get it. This is a base election and turnout is key. We cant have a nominee who thinks its his 'time' or hes the best choice because the establishment (Media and DNC) says so and ignore his policies. To win in 2020 we cant repeat 2016 and need a candidate who inspires high turnout.

  4. Biden wins primaries,
    elects Hillary as running mate,
    gets presidency,
    passes away in his sleep with no suspicious circumstances.
    American realities.

  5. WISHFUL THINKING. NOT IN YOUR LIFETIME ! SO GET ACCUSTOMED TO HIS RE-ELECTION WITH A RESOUNDING MAJORITY IN 2020.

  6. Instead of being about "defeating Trump", how about they be about doing something for the average American citizen…..

    You lost 2016 because you forced a classic oldschool corporate moderate Democrat in a year it was clear the majority of American citizens said they didn't want establishment candidates and are very tired of it. That is why Trump won, because he was an outsider….. Not another same old washed up Washington insider.

    Joe Biden is more of the same. Nothing will be done if he is elected. Nothing for us that is…..

  7. While this is true we should remember this is what happen the last time. Here we go again the people must choose 2 bad candidates.

  8. NOTICE: They Are Purposely Leaving Andrew Yang Off The List I Thing They Are Afraid Of Him Becoming President Because there Goes Their Millions Of Advertising Dollars From Oil, Gasoline Automobile Manufactures, Etc They Stand To Lose Millions In Ad Dollars If A Real Progressive Gets Elected.

  9. Oh my god stop this nonsense that joe Biden is the most electable candidate, he is like Hillary Clinton corporate democrat and believe me if get nominated he will loose badly, senator Bernie Sanders for nomination, period.

  10. Biden…what she the female commentator said. Dems DONT make the same mistake again!! The majority of folks are sick and tired of the status quo. NO REPEATS!!

  11. Let's say Biden stays aound 30 and Sanders and Warren hover around 15 each. The minute either of the progressives drop ot of the race, their supportes will switch to the one that remains and so will draw equal with Biden, possibly even surpassing him by this point. How is it that people, especially those who are suppposed to be analysts and experts on these issues, don't acknowledge this? It changes the story enormously. And such talk would affect the feeling among the electorate I would imagine.
    P.S. Sanders is pretty popular among non-white and/or non-christian US citizens. And young people too. Biden's got nothing to offer them. Despite their left lean, these commentators are as capable of spinning and lying, especially by ommision, as the rght. They don't need to do it when talking about Trump or social issues, but they do it a lot when talking about the Democratic race. They're propping Biden up like nobody's business, and go all glowy when they talk about Harris.They're ok-ish with Warren but that's partly because they're so uncomfortable with Sanders (they're rich so he's not really their cup of tea – shh). Shame.

  12. Let's point something out to those "older core democratic voters." ANY candidate is electable if WE decide to elect them. Not every candidate is worthy of election. If you vote for Biden just because you are afraid of your own shadow and are scared there really aren't more Democrats than Republicans, then shame on you. You will LOSE, again, because of your cowardice. Pick a GOOD PRESIDENT, not the candidate you presume will win in some ridiculous attempt to predict who will be the winner against Trump. Whomever we pick, will win. But the young folks are telling you, THEY WILL NOT VOTE FOR BIDEN. You want to lose? Insist on trying to read tea leaves, instead of listenting to policies and examining voting history.

  13. READ..ALL PEOPLE WANT , IS A MIDDLE GROUND OF both PARTIES!?? This is a REALITY, that needs to START Happening .

  14. I've been paying attention
    Joe is worst than Hillary: a damaged candidate.
    Go home Joe, you just can't win you are a damaged old white boy.

  15. Very few people will vote for Joe/Hilary 2.0. MSNBC stop pushing the worse candidate possible on Dems or we will end have another 4 years of Orange Turd Trump.

  16. MSNBC is totally ignoring the grassroot donations. Mr Sanders are way ahead. I think MSNBC is peddling Mr Biden.

  17. it is a sad day in america when we are not talking about what is right vs what is wrong and leaning toward politics. anyone with a brain can LOOK at agent 45 and see that he is WRONG! If you don't you are lying to yourself and your creator

  18. Sure, I'd rather have Warren or Sanders, but you can bet your butt that if Biden ends up being the candidate, I will vote for him. We can not have another situation like 2016 with the Sanders supporters voting for Jill Stein…wasting their vote and giving us the devil in the Whitehouse.

  19. I believe joe can work with republicans but I don’t believe in working with them. How can you? They don’t believe in equality, liberty 🗽 and justice ⚖️ for all and they tear down any legislation progressives pass. For gods sake their idea of a “culture” war is to just be flat out hateful and racist. That’s not culture.

  20. There is zero bipartisanship .gop only has two goals: 1) to enrich themselves and their peers 2) to stay in power. They will do ANYTHING to accomplish this. Politics is one way in our nation.

  21. Joe Biden will screw it up. Democrats need a candidate who can walk and talk at the same time….Sanders and Warren are at 15% and 14 % and they appeal to the same voters, meaning they are splitting that vote now, but either one's supporters will go to the one nominated and that is the same as Biden's 29%.

  22. Biden is absolutely right about working with Republicans. It's the only way things get done in Washington. He is spot on. We need a president who can bring us together and get things done.

  23. We will make whomever survives the primary electable. We can win with a moderate if we have to, but the energy and momentum is with the progressives. Many moderates and those on the right actually support many progressive issues when asked issue by issue. Sanders or Warren can win this.

  24. Why is you tube pushing MSNBC over almost all channels and in the same way msnbx is pushing BIDEN over BERNIE AGAIN I will state WE NEED BIRNEY SANDERS and Google and mainstream media are not giving fair air time to anyone they don't support

  25. the funny or unbelievable thing is corporate hacks REALLY prefer drumpft over bernie. they are more "ok" with 4 more years of this charade, than bernie. enjoy…

  26. Bernie Sanders is the best candidate who have consistent records on policies . #Sanders2020
    Joe Biden is a flip flopper likeTrump.

  27. Biden, Warren, Harris & Klobuchar are all "establishment" candidates who are simply a little "left" of the republican candidates. Mostly "republican lite".

    If you really want change it will take a candidate like Sanders, Gabbard, or even Yang to get something done beyond more capitulation to "get along" with republican roadblocks to effective change in the legislature.

  28. Bidden cannot win. He won't carry the swing votes. His pitch is a return to the same old same old. We have better choices!!! #Sanders

  29. How about getting rid of Donald Trump FIRST by an obviously needed legal maneuver and then deciding which candidate will do best for the American people?
    And you left Andrew Yang off your chart of candidates. Again. Why? Is Chuck still mad at him for some reason?

  30. History proved nine out of 10 Republican Administrations drove the country into recessions. GW Bush's was the most recent one and it was big. Trump's recession could be a whopper. History also proved the economy thrives under Democratic Administrations. Fact check it on Googe.

  31. Oh, I really don't want to have to vote for Biden. It is awful that he is running at all. Beto, please stay in Texas… Well, the most should simply bow out by now. Please, not Biden.

  32. We have thought about it and Joe Biden ain't the best choice, even if he win he'll most likely lose his first mid terms and never get much of anything done as Americas problems continue to pile up, as we continue the slow march to the collapse of our civilization due to global warming, as America continues it march into full naked Plutocracy/Oligarchy and the GOP becomes a full on 110% fascist party.

  33. Sorry, Uncle Joe sucks on so many issues. If he gets the nomination, progressives have to shame him into #M4A, other crucial policies.

  34. MSNBC and NBC need to STOP rebuilding Biden. Why are you doing it? How can you be so out of touch? I don't see you rebuilding any of the other candidates. The truth will out and you will be on the wrong side of history.

  35. Don’t you people realize the horror of big government? Look at the Third Reich. Big government. Look at Soviet Russia. Big government. Believe it or not, as bad as the Nazi party was, one could argue that the Soviet Union was even worse. Stalin killed over 3 times as many people as Hitler. You call POTUS Hitler, he is not. We call the far left Stalin, and they are.

  36. I’m starting to see 2016 all over again , pushing joe Biden is just what trump needs to get another term … joe Biden is the status quo and is the big corporate choice

  37. wow… so much turd polish on msnbc. no wonder the left hates you as much as the right does, but for entirely different reasons.

  38. Yeah look obviously the support of Bernie and Warren equals Biden. Add the others and it is larger than Biden. In a few months the whole picture will change

  39. As far as Biden being one of a bazillion folks to vote for the Iraq War, let's not forget that Saddam Hussein himself said he had WMDs in the days leading up to the
    War.

  40. Joe is an terrible nominee. His messeage is vote for me because I will compromise with republicans. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what happens when you compromise before you even get to the negotiating table.

  41. A dog would be a better choice for president than Don the Con Trump. But Hillary's ego allowed her to think she was a good candidate, and Biden's ego is repeating that exact same mistake. Move over, Rover, and let Bernie (or some other PROGRESSIVE) take over!

  42. I don’t think these people can do basic arithmetic. Biden has 22% support of progressives/ liberals. That’s not a big number. 75% of liberals don’t support Biden. When the progressives coalition unifies their candidate will be the front runner

  43. i am a bit shocked that the negative comments about joe are not being hidden. or being flooded by comments from correct the record trolls

  44. REPORT ON AMAZON RAINFOREST FIRES PLEASE!!! YOU MAINSTREAM MEDIA MAY HAVE BEEN SILENT FOR WEEKS ABOUT IT BUT WORD GOT OUT ON TWITTER! IT IS HAPPENING AND IT IS BAD!

  45. Biden will take us to how things use to be. Not what this country needs. We need to driven into the future by an activist missile like Warren or Bernie

  46. We all know Moscow Mitch is the "face" of "everything" wrong with this country!

    He is an obstructionist to our republic!

    He hopes he can get the Russian flag flying over our WH!

  47. The Biden campaign is trying to cut back on his appearances because he can’t stop putting his foot in his mouth.
    Jill admitting her husband sucks on policy is really thinking people will just vote for Joe because she thinks he’s electable?
    The only people excited about Biden are old people that don’t know much about politics and the 1%.

  48. The repubs have been playing completely dirty since 2010. They have broken the spirit and sometimes the letter of the law every chance they have gotten. All they care about is controlling everything with money, not a majority. They can not be worked with. Focus on getting strong enough majorities that little cooperation is needed, then get to work.

  49. Aside from being eminently qualified to be POTUS, perhaps the most qualified candidate in US History, Biden has much higher favorability ratings than Hillary and King Con. That, plus Biden's support from the African American Community make him a far better candidate than HRC. Also, after four years of King Con, voters will be less likely to see him as an agent of change and more likely to see him for what he really is: a complete fraud in every sense of the word.
