It’s honestly time for him to suspend the campaign. I appreciate that Bernie has moved the center further left and brought issues like aggressive climate action, removing big money from politics, and income inequality to the forefront of our discourse. But the primaries have shown that he’s just not the candidate to beat Trump and prolonging it at this point will just sow division. I get it: Biden has some shortcomings. But he’s still miles better than Trump. We can’t afford 4 more years of him.
I don’t think he can. Hope he does, want him to, but this sub has been memeing about “vote blue no matter who” when sanders were seemingly ahead, so we kinda have to stick to that now. Biden is still far and away better than Trump, and progressive candidates won’t vanish. There will be another Bernie, but letting the Supreme Court go straight red will just make it harder for the next person that does show up and try to fill bernies shoes.
