Bernie lost because young people didn't come out and vote for him this time around. Nor did as many other people. I think his mandatory public healthcare scared the shit out of a lot of people. At least that's the consensus among Dems I know that voted for Biden.

Bernie lost because he's a grumpy do-nothing who is hated by his own colleagues and who says nice things about Castro. This isn't a mystery about voter turnout, just like it wasn't last time.

Even if that’s all true everyone else was worse. They accomplished even less and were even more out of touch.
