On MSNBC last night, Chris Hayes had some strong words for people in the Democratic coalition:
“It seems like there are many people inside and outside the Democratic Party who are shocked Bernie Sanders is doing so well.”
“His success, though, should not be that surprising. If you want to win the Democratic primary in 2020, there are three fundamental things you need to do to get on top.
“[One] Win more states and get more votes than any other competitors because you have to get more delegates than the people running against you.”
“Two, you have to have an organization and crucially money that can allow you to play in a dozen different states at the same time. Because Super Tuesday is so massive this year and comes so early.”
“Three, this is crucial, you need to have a multi-racial coalition in the diverse, heterogeneous Democratic Party of the 21 century. Bernie Sanders is the only candidate who is checking all those boxes.”
