Except IMO, the big problem with Bernie’s “overestimated” appeal, is that said overestimation is mainly exhibited online: where, as we saw in 2016, efforts by a relatively small group of *activists* (OK, also “malevolent hackers”, but the difference can be slight sometimes) can have an extremely multiplied effect. Enough to skew intraparty opinion in ways which might not reflect actual political reality. Especially as the hardcore Berners seem to be as much of an obsessive personality-cult as the Trumprrhoids.

Right. Online can really make a big difference but I think he’s at a disadvantage this time since he has to run against other people. Other people who will call things out about him that the Clinton campaign may not have. Julian Castro already got him on his double standards on reparations.
