I’m sure a lot probably do but I think the dropouts and endorsements will really change the game. As does the African American vote.

Biden’s biggest problem will be the was they do proportionate distribution of delegates.  If Bernie has a big day on Super Tuesday which I think is likely even a 200-300 delegate lead good be enough for Sanders to hold on.

But superdelegates can cancel all that out. It will be messy but it isn’t like it hasn’t happened before.

Lots of folks dropping out and backing Biden. Must be all hands on deck to stop Sanders at DNC. One thing I’ve realized is Obama hasn’t endorsed Biden. Maybe he’s holding it back for the stretch run.

Trump had a thing in Charlotte Monday. He’s going to states and having rallies the day before the primary. Smart. NC will be a big get this time.

My guess is Bloomberg and Biden are going to split the moderate vote.  I think Biden would get a much bigger boost if Bloomberg wasn’t involved.  I watched Bloomberg’s Town Hall on Fox and he all but admitted he’s working the angle of a contested convention.  That’s why he’s pumping a lot of money into local campaigns to get the delegates on his side.
