    He will blame it on the Chinese and use it to start another trade war

    Maybe but that won't help the economy too much, which is the only thing he is really worried about. Once the economy goes south he'll have no fallback message for the election (no true one anyway).

    The Democratic party establishment pulling out all the stops to prevent Sanders from winning. Several candidates dropping out and endorsing Biden just in time for super Tuesday. Four more years of Trump and a split of the Democratic party looking likely. The Republicans are gonna fudge that country over so bad. Abortion laws will be back on the agenda once they've gotten another right wing judge on the supreme court.

    I dont understand how, as such a powerful group of politicians, the Democrats haven't been able to tell Sanders to 'bugger off' by now. After tinkling them off last time they have had years to find a way of stopping him running again no!?

    I'm not saying I am anti-Sanders (I dont know anything about any of the candidates, other than Biden is a c**t) but how have they not managed to get their brick together after all this time and get behind a decent alternative to Trump!?

    The DNC is not really what we think of as a political party. It's mostly a campaign organization and anyone who wants can run for them. In quite a few states you don't even have to be a member to vote in the primaries.

    Obviously those already on the gravy train don't want to see change. The Republicans are the dark masters at rigging the system to keep the elite in power, but the democrats are just as bad when it comes to being slaves to corporate funding.

    Warren is still in with a slim chance. Polls show that she was 2nd choice for a lot of voters, including those voters for Buttigieg and Klobuchar. She won't get a plurality of delegates but it looks unlikely that any candidate will. And I doubt if she's be in the top two either today but will do pretty well in some of the big states, and might have enough delegates to position herself as Sanders running mate down the road. Whether that will be enough to counterbalance the moderates pilling in behind Biden, who knows. Sanders, and for that matter Biden, might not even make it through one term so the VP candidate this time is quite likely to be a future president.I think that's why the other other mod candidates are giving Biden so much love. Pick me pick me!!

    I think a lot depends on how many votes Bloomberg is able to buy.

    If there is one thing this thread has taught me, it's how little the majority of British people know about America. Truly clueless.

    The majority of the world, Americans included, share the views in this thread.

    But you're right, i for one does not know much about the USA. You do manage to appear like a bunch of clowns, so maybe you need to project yourselves differently.

    I've experienced healthcare in the US and it puts what we have in the UK to shame.

    No waiting, everything's clean and efficient, more equipment than anyone could possibly need, etc.

    Which goes to illustrate my point perfectly.

    Maybe if you can afford it, it is better, but therein lies the problem. Most American's can't.

    British people haven't a clue, I'll give you that. They voted for brexit ffs. The rest of the world has America pegged exactly right. ;)
