Interesting hypothetical that my wife and I were just talking about:

If Dewine were somehow to run for President in the 2020 Election, would he win?

Obviously not happening now, but he could end up w/ a run for POTUS with his handling of this issue in 4 years.
I don't know, but I wouldn't vote for him. I wouldn't vote for anyone issuing these massive lockdowns.

Anyone think the Dems end up nominating Cuomo at the convention? I've seen some theories online recently.

The governor of Wisconsin waited (not well versed on the issue if someone has a more accurate account) til the day before the elections to postpone them, like DeWine. He received a court order stating he can't do that, like DeWine. Except this is coming from the Supreme Court and seems to be more binding than whatever happened in Ohio. So now we may very well have a compromised election in Wisconsin and a surefire shitshow regardless.

I feel like the parties should be more vocally trying to protect voters here. Postponing in person voting is important, as is expanding mail-in voting. The Democrats should be vocal and consistent on this issue. I'm very afraid that this pandemic will open up new and exciting forms of voter suppression that could decide the presidential election.

I also think it will open high levels of fraud.

Interesting... my guess is that he’s face a lot of name recognition problems. People don’t vote for people they don’t know. I think it’d hamper him significantly in the primary.

I feel like Bernie is actually a self centered asshole for not dropping out as the 2nd place guy for the sake of safety. There really is allot of reasons to not like Bernie, he really has a huge ego

Honestly I think this is a shitty take, as it blames Bernie for not dropping out of a race that isn't over instead of the party apparatus for doing nothing to protect voters.

Biden's campaign LIED in order to encourage people to go out and vote. Sanders' camp showed concern after the CDC banned groups of 50+ and told their supporters it was their choice whether to make the trip to the polls.

I mean it's far from the only election that is taking place the primary might be the biggest election news wise but statewide they have a supreme court judge to vote on as well as special election for a House Rep. to Congress and then I know cause he was interviewed earlier the Milwaukee mayoral race is happening so I'm sure local level race depending on terms are happening too.

So basically in no way is this Bernie's fault for not having dropped out already, it 100% on the Republican controlled legislative branch as well as their Republican majority Supreme Court for putting people in harms way. I'm pretty sure it was posted that Milwaukee went from 130 or so polling locations to 5, because nobody rightfully wants to work as a poll worker so tomorrow is going to be a giant clusterfuck that could get people killed.

Is this in reference to Bernie's "narrow path"?

So, could you elaborate on this, I'm not understanding how it's their fault. For having positions up on the ballot or something else?

They(Republicans) hold majorities in the legislative branch and the on state supreme court, Evers(Wisc. Gov.) rightfully tried to move the election to a later date and the Republican appealed the decision to the Republican majority supreme court and they reversed Evers executive order to move the election. I mean its not even unprecedented in the past couple weeks basically every other state that has been holding primaries has pushed them back as well. It also been insanely hard to get a absentee ballot for those voters because the demand is unsurprisingly very high and a earlier court decision to extend the deadline for absentee ballots was struck down by the supreme court so they have to be in tomorrow or people get to put themselves in harms way if they want to exercise their right to vote.
