Bernie doesn't control the actions of his supporters.    This was the case in 2016 and it will be even more so in 2020.

The Economist article and polling data made this clear;   Younger Bernie supporters are NOT "lesser evil" type voters.    They need to LOVE who they plan to vote for.   They need to believe the candidate is genuine (this really hurt Hillary).    Hating the other-guy or supporting-your-party-period isn't enough to motive them to vote on election day (and since Bernie isn't a Dem,, the latter has little juice).   

Warren might be able to get them to love her,,,, Biden,,,,  no way.

They both support (well supported in the case of Fidel), the same health-care system?

The CIA/Mafia (sorry for the redundancy) is not trying to assassinate Bernie.

Two interesting columns re: Warren and Sanders and Medicare For All.  First is by Catherine Rampell and basically states that Warren tried to use Sanders plan as a basis for hers - and failed.  Her plan requires very generous assumptions, which are faulty.  Rampell does believe that Warren's plan could arrive at universal coverage, BUT without a single payer (government) system.  But it would also have income based requirements, cost sharing and minimum benefits.

Michael Gerson believes that Warren's MFA plan would help reelect Trump.  Warren is six points behind Trump in Michigan, even with him in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and four points behind in Florida.  Trump and the GOPers will exploit the weak points in her MFA plan and in these swing states will most likely tilt the election to Trump.

She proposes a massive increase in government involvement in people's lives at a time when people trust government less.  She will replace ACA (Obamacare) just as it is beginning to show signs that it could work with improvents.  Her estimates on both costs and revenues for MFA and potential budget cuts are overly optimistic.

The 2018 (and now 2019) elections have shown that Trump and the GOPers are losing some voters, but these same voters will not be attracted to the Dem party in 2020 if Warren (or whoever) proposes socialism, disruption and radicalism to American health care system.
