I generally read CNN to keep a pulse on what the general media is saying. Every once in a while the come out with an article that I find insightful: ... index.html

While getting caught up in the whirlwind of the election, I didn't realize it, but this analysis is right. Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren probably would have lost.

Biden won where other Democrats lost (like the Nebraska 2nd district), and ran ahead of most house and senate democrats. Turnout was massive for both sides so you can't say Biden didn't turn out the base.

Cautionary tale to my progressive friends out there. If your candidate of choice was nominated, Trump very well could've been reelected.
