Chris Matthews Likens Sanders Victory in Nev. to Germans Overrunning France in 1940

‘It’s too late to stop him’


MATTHEWS: "I don’t think so. But this is the way we’re picking this one. I’m with Carville of the dangers of what lies ahead in November, they’re sitting on so much research on Bernie, what he said in the past about world affairs. How far left he is. They’re going to make the most of it, I think it’s too late to stop him. If you look at the pattern, it’s dynamic. He won the popular vote in Iowa, New Hampshire, looks like he’s going to win it here. Bernie’s been winning consistently, and I think it’s understandable, every time we poll, Steve and everybody polls, two thirds of the democratic vote, two thirds of the people who call themselves Democrats are liberal or very liberal. All Bernie ever had to do is get a majority of that, and he’s up to the mid-30s, if you get half of 67 you’re into the mid-30s. Biden’s only prayer was to consolidate a third of the vote, and he got nowhere near clearing that field. That’s split up four ways now. As new people come in, Bloomberg is in, he’s going to survive a bit longer because of his money, that field wasn’t clear. The only way Biden could wing was to sweep it, he got nowhere near. Bernie got more than a majority of the 67%. That is the name of the game. I was reading last night about the fall of France in the summer of 1940. And the general calls up Churchill and says, it’s over. And Churchill says how can it be, you got the great offest army in Europe. How could it be over? It’s over. I had that suppressed feeling. I can’t be as wild as cashville, but he’s smart, and I think he’s right on this one. Joy?"
