With Bernie on top of the ticket. Bernie can win W. Virginia in 2020. Dems have a plurality of voters. Bernie won far more voters than Clinton in 2016 primaries. If one lookat how bad Manchin ran in 2018, it because he a corporate Democrat.

Democrats will win W. Virginia by probably 20-30 in 2020 with Bernie on the thicket. He's pro single payer which is what people there like and want.

I'm not entirely sure about this prospect. Most registered Democrats in WV are socially conservative, and it may take them some time to shake the narrative of "Democrats want to take away coal jobs with no replacement" which has been fed to them by Republicans.

BERNIE was only polling well in 2016, in WVA, due to fact Justice was a Democrat and leading the field.  Bernie isn't gonna win the nomination.

« Edited: May 13, 2019, 03:14:57 pm by IA less likely to flip than OH/TX/FL/GA/NC/AZ »

Itís definitely more likely to flip than GA-PRES, a pro-corporate Democrat would struggle here though.

EDIT: Oh, and WV is one of the most E-L-A-S-T-I-C states in the country, so of course itís possible.

If Bernie wins the nomination, WV moves to Toss-Up/Tilt D, though AZ/FL/GA/NC would immediately become Titanium R, since all minorities hate Bernie (Twitter told me so!) so they would flock to Trump, obviously.

OMG.

First of all, Sanders will NEVER be the Dem nominee for POTUS because it would result in Trump sweeping all 50 states, reducing the Dems to minor political party status.

On WV Governor's Mansion: forget about it! Let the GOP have at it.

Bernie has a lot of appeal here, his friendship with Joe Manchin helps out a lot too (their political views are surprisingly similar). Anyway, white working class populists are dying to get back to the Democratic party, look at 2018! Perhaps a Sanders/Ojeda ticket anyone?? Overall, WV is tilt R; in a close race it could very well flip. Keep your eyes on those Mingo/McDowell county populists on election night. Mark my words.

Not sarcasm, if you look at the 2014 Senate - 2016 Gov - 2018 Senate trends, they are quite favorable to the Dems. I would expect them to pick up both houses of state legislature in 2020.

In an addendum to my previous post, I think the Democrat narrowly dodged a bullet in 2018 with Joe Manchin. Had they nominated Paula Jean-Sweargin, I think she would has at least got Jay Rockefeller numbers, possibly Robert Byrd numbers.

You got my, in reality the whole WV = secret socialist thing is so easy to mock is because it is one of the most ridiculous things floated on the forum. However, I still think Bernie would do better here than a Kamala Harris or Joe Biden.

The only reason Bernie did so well in the 2016 WV Dem primary was because he wasn't Clinton.

Not sure if this is parody, but while Bernie will certainly do better than Clinton did in 2016, he'll still lose, get sub-40%, and not win any counties.
