I’m under 50. I prefer Biden to Bernie. In all seriousness, are you looking at the vote counts between this and last primaries? Biden got nearly twice as many votes as Bernie in states that Bernie beat Hillary in handily. That happened again in Wisconsin last week, and they voted in a liberal state supreme court judge. Look at swing states like MN and MI 2016 vs 2020.

Why am I to believe that Bernie could win the general election when he isn’t competitive against Biden in the Dem primary?

Saying this is a repeat doesn’t make it so. The numbers do not support that theory.

Bernie got young support, but not young votes.
