"but there are a healthy number who just find Bernie annoying, discount his seriousness, and wish his supporters and movement would just go away."

Death by a thousand cuts. Right now the media is pretending to cover Warren and Kamala. Then, they'll destroy them and give us Biden.

"Bernie is annoying" sounds eerily similar to "Bernie is a Jew".
Antisemitism at its finest!

Looks like they forgot to bring Chairbonre's side of au jus with his French dip again.

Bernie is a genuine threat to the status quo, though he can't do it alone. The mass media is an important part of the status quo are is paid ridiculous amounts of money during the campaign season for ads which should be run for free on the public airways.They prefer to ignore Bernie than to tackle the issues he brings up.

He is kind of annoying. I'll still vote for him if he becomes the Democratic nominee though.

I think this is a sign his campaign will be declining even faster soon. His popularity peaked during the 2016. Now he's just weird sugar daddy hanging around offering to pay for kids' college fees.

Bernie is toast. Just like Biden, he's too old and too white.

The recent interview with Rosie O'Donnell mentions everyone but Bernie. How weird, right? I mean, he's the best candidate, ahead of Warren and Harris, but doesn't get any mention. This is a repeat of 2016 MSM tactics.

I will always be grateful to bernie for leading the charge for progressivism and moving the party to the left, but I think maybe his time has passed. He could still have a vital role in the party. He should be like a consumer reports for political candidates, where voters can turn to see how likely that candidate is to support real progress and fight plutocracy. "Bernie Approved" could win a lot of votes for small ballot candidates.

At this point i think warren is a stronger candidate, but neither she or bernie will win if the other is in the race. They're fighting for the same share of the voters. The sooner one of them drops out the better. But I suspect they'll draw it out.

How many times do we have to hear the same campaign we heard in 2016. Bernie is trying to sell a radical experiment at a time when the only thing American want is normalcy.

"This is a repeat of 2016 MSM tactics."

I don't think it's a purposful tactic. The truth is that Bernie is just dull and angry all the time. He's like the grumpy old man sitting in the balcony shaking his fist at the play on the stage.

I don't think anybody dislikes Bernie. They just want him to shut up and stop trying to be a spoiler.

Bingo.

Especially now that some iteration of his ideas are the norm for Dem candidates.

In any case, I wish I could NW this for each section.

Sanders and berniebros are annoying.

a bunch of self involved arrogant children is what they are.

1/10 of them actually voted for Trump to punish America for not nominating their apparent God!

I agree that the deadenders don't know when to stop litigating the 2016 election. They still think Bernie got gipped. Bernie was trying to sell an idea that had the word "socialist" in it. He never adequately explained the concept.

Bernie got what he deserved in 2016. He didn't put in the work with the team he wanted to lead. That's not even the first time that happened to him.

Bernie was also slow on the uptake. Hillary had already rounded up all the best super-delegate endorsements.
