While pundits focus on Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Joe Biden, and Michael Bloomberg, the real question looming over the Party is the fate of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.
Will her brand of Bernie-socialism plus her feminism be enough to bridge the gap between what Sanders can win on his own, and a majority?
In other words, could a Sanders-Warren ticket be nominated?
Although she will probably lose her home state of Massachusetts to Sanders, she will get a bunch of delegates there. She’ll also finish a strong third — or even second — in left-wing California.
And Warren may be able to pierce the 15% threshold regularly in the Super Tuesday states.
On the strength of a good national organization, Sanders is likely to score a huge win on Super Tuesday, securing 500-600 delegates, about 40% of those selected.
Biden should finish second with about 300-400 delegates, about 25% and approximately 200-300 behind Bernie.
Warren should run a very strong third, winning 200-300 delegates, about 20%.
Bloomberg’s return on his investment will probably run between 100 and 200 delegates, roughly 10%. Good for fourth place.
Money isn't what it used to be.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar will win her home state of Minnesota and not much else.
And so, a pattern may well be set. Bernie alone will fall short of a majority.
But combined with Warren, he will; be safely over 50%.
So, keep your eye on Warren, she may be the key to a Sanders victory as opposed to a brokered convention.
