Bernie Sanders rivals staying in the race prop him up and fall victim to game theory problem

A USC Price-Schwarzenegger California Issues Poll conducted in the first half of February found that Sanders was the top choice among likely Democratic primary voters at 29.2%, with Biden in second at 21.4%, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 20.2%, Bloomberg at 7.7%, Buttigieg at 5.8%, and Klobuchar at 2.7%. Based on that poll, it is plausible that “Sanders could beat the 15% delegate threshold while all these other candidates get just under 15% of the delegate total. If one’s goal is to stop Bernie Sanders, it makes sense for one candidate to emerge as the focal point of the stop Bernie group,” Grose said. Washington Examiner

New Vote Centers Open This Weekend, But Most Angelenos Have No Idea

New research is painting a troubling picture about whether Angelenos know about the new vote centers, spelled out in a 2016 law called the Voter’s Choice Act. On Thursday, the USC Price-Schwarzenegger Institute published results from its California Issues Poll showing just over 37% of likely voters in the 15 counties implementing Voter’s Choice Act changes in 2020 were aware that where and how to cast ballots was changing. In Los Angeles, 62.2% either didn’t know about the changes or couldn’t answer the question. In contrast, over half of respondents (51%) in Orange County knew about the changes. The Latest
