Senate Democrats are feeling queasy about their party’s presidential primary after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) seized frontrunner status by winning the New Hampshire primary, while former Vice President Joe Biden stumbled to a fifth-place finish.

Democratic senators have been careful not to criticize Sanders publicly, fearing that it could undermine party unity heading into the November general election, which they view as a must-win contest.

But they have serious questions about the electability of their self-described Democratic Socialist colleague, and the problems he may create down ballot for vulnerable Senate candidates.

Several of Sanders’s signature proposals, such as “Medicare for All,” free college, cancelling student debt and the sweeping Green New Deal, don’t even have support from a majority of Democratic senators.

“I think there’s a substantial element of people worried about where we’re going,” said a Democratic senator, who requested anonymity to comment on discussions with colleagues.

Asked about Sanders’s reputation as a lawmaker on the far-left of the nation’s ideological spectrum, the lawmaker said, “senators worry about that.”

“Politicians worry all the time,” the source added.

Democrats don’t want to speak out because there’s a growing chance that Sanders will be the nominee.

“There is a real sense that whoever gets it, we’ve got to be behind him. This election is too important,” the senator said.

Other Democrats are downplaying Sanders’s recent victories but fretting about whether he will embrace one of his rivals as the party’s eventual nominee if Sanders loses the contest.

“We all hope to God he will follow what he said last night in New Hampshire that we’re all on the same team and it’s all of our responsibility to bring whatever we can to help the nominee,” said another Democratic senator.

Some Democrats still think that Sanders failed to fully embrace Hillary Clinton in 2016, and blame him for lingering resentment among some of his supporters. They believe this hurt voter turnout and helped Trump win the presidency.

The Democratic Socialist label attached to Sanders comes up with Democrats from more conservative states.

Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.), who is up for re-election this year in a state that Trump carried by 28 points, said, “I don’t agree with the socialism label.”

He also said it’s too soon to assume Sanders is going to wind up as the nominee, telling reporters: “I still believe there is a long way to go here.”

While Jones said Sanders’s backers are “important voices,” he added “I don’t think they’re going to carry the day.”

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told Politico Wednesday: “If Bernie ends up being one of these frontrunners, he’ll have to moderate. I’m not going socialist. Never been a socialist.”

Biden, who for months was regarded as the Democratic frontrunner and the candidate with the best chance of beating Trump in the general election, suffered back-to-back crippling losses in Iowa and New Hampshire.

His losses were especially dispiriting to Democratic lawmakers because he ran lackluster campaigns in both states and fell well short of expectations.

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (Ill.), who is neutral, said Biden “needs a comeback.”

Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and other Democratic senators said Biden’s underwhelming performance in Iowa and New Hampshire was a surprise.

“I think everybody thought he would be stronger in Iowa and New Hampshire,” he said. “There’s no question that’s noticeable.”

Durbin acknowledged that “of course” he’s concerned about Republicans’ desire to make the 2020 election a “referendum on socialism,” something Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) pledged to do last year.

“When you get down to the reality of socialism, I’d like to hear Sen. McConnell explain Social Security and Medicare in terms of socialism. The word socialism is an attack on Bernie Sanders, as I see it,” he said.

Poster Comment:

Now why would the socialist democraps be queasy over a Sanders candidacy ? They are so full of evil they should be puking their rancid guts out! They would strangle the goose that laid a golden egg. This nation would be far better off if the democrat-socialist party would be listed as subversive as they are all anti-Constitution zombies who do nothing but daily take wrecking balls to this republic.

On the other hand, perhaps socialism (one step away from communism) could be a great adventure for America. The nation would be finished as a Republic and society would drift into a spy-ridden tattletale society leading to Washington looking a lot like Madrid in 1936.

The Conservative ( R Wing) elements of the military would revolt and the aging senile Sanders would end up hanging from a lamppost placed there by the youthful gaggle that caused his election. In other words, they would be shocked at how socialism quickly morphed into communism and they are looked upon as enemies by the central communist government. (1 image)

Little Dick Durbin is an intensely disliked little shitheel. He has always been typical of the kind of worthless human beings Illinoisans send to dig them, and us, a deeper hole.

Cry me a river! How many Republicans supported candidate Trump's call for a border wall, income tax cut, scrapping the Paris accord/NAFTA/the Iran deal, reducing regulations, etc.?

"Democrats don’t want to speak out because there’s a growing chance that Sanders will be the nominee.

Didn't stop the Republicans from speaking out against candidate Trump.

Last time I looked (which was 5 seconds ago) Buttigieg has one more delegate than Sanders, making him, not Sanders, the front-runner (primaries and caucuses are proportional, not "first past the post", so the WINNER is the one who has the most delegates).

The Democrats have a mess on their hands, because Bernie isn't doing well enough to really control the party, but his followers are so out of step with the rest of Democrats that if Sanders is the leader in terms of delegates, without a majority that automatically makes him the nominee, they will claim he was "robbed" when they give the nomination to Bloomberg. And they'll stay home in a rage, which will tank Democrat chances across the board.

It will be a beautiful day in November when that happens.

Can the RATminions really feel comfortable with an ex-Republican mayor Bloomberg at the head of the ticket? Not just the Sanders and Warren supporters, but all lifelong Dems. Yeah, he can buy the RAT nomination and self-finance his own campaign, but I don't see how MiniMike can electrify the RAT base...MUD

The massive dog turd that is today's Democrat-Communist Party hasn't ONE normal, thoughtful human being. It's as though aliens or Satan has taken over their bodies. They are the biggest danger Americans have to face.

Collins and Romney show the cancer is clearly in the Republican Party as well. Neither one can be counted on for anything. Romney is apparently itching to be the vice-president on the Democrat Ticket. A Buttiplug and Romney could be a perfect fit (pun there). Perhaps Buttiplug will get a divorce from his 'husband' and become Romney's wife. Then he could get rid of his ridiculous last name and America would have it's first female and the fist time the president and vice-president would have the same last name.

But enough of this fantasy! Our president will win in 2020, the house will become Republican as will the senate with large majorities. A bill will be passed that allows presidents two six year terms and will be retroactive as to include Trump. States will buck the central socialist government and change the election of senators to appointments. These appointments will be made by states' legislatures and will be for only two four year terms. Representatives will be permitted four two year terms and any remuneration and expenses will be borne by the respective state. The central government will pay nothing towards the upkeep or needs of these politicians.

Here's one no vote on the 12-year POTUS term, Trump's going to be about spent come January 2025. 8 years is plenty and it is up to WeThePeople to determine his successor. Spineless, feckless RINO squishes like McStain and Romney need not apply...MUD

I don't know. If McCain shows up to put his name into the ring, I expect we'll all be sitting up and taking notice.

And in truth, Romney is spineless. McCain was a cantankerous stubborn vindictive son-of-a-bitch, but spineless? Rather the opposite of that I'd say. He was explosively aggressive about any contradiction. Romney's a squishy jellyfish. McCain was a spiny crab.

And yes, SPINELESS when it came to his courting of the RAT media by torpedoing good conservative GOP legislation. Then again, you are probably correct that spineless isn't the best word to describe a man this obstinate.

Whoa just a second Vic.

You predicted Bloomburg would be the nominee and that you would vote for him and fuck the Republicans.

I gave you a hard time about it and said you didn't know what you were talking about. I said you had no political instincts and you were dumb and I was smart. You seem to have been at least somewhat right because Bloomburg seems like he is on the rise. At least the media wants us to think that.

Bloomberg looked strong. But tonight at the debate Bloomberg flopped. I expect that Bernie will get the most delegates. Who will be the nominee? Buttigieg? Won’t matter: Trump will whomp them in November. Their only real hope was Bloomberg, but he was nasty to some girls, so that’s it for him. Trump won the debate.

"Trump won the debate."

Yep...I never watch these RAT debates, but based on the highlights and punditry, candidates scored primarily by kneecapping their opponents in a circular firing squad.

Advantage: Trump and those GOPers who are smart enough to hop on his coattails in November...MUD
