A week ago, the candidacy of Joe Biden was at death’s door.

On a taping of “The McLaughlin Group,” this writer suggested it might be time to “call the rectory” and have the monsignor come render last rites.

Today, Biden’s candidacy is not only alive. He is first in votes, victories and delegates, and is favored to win the nomination and, by most polls, to defeat Donald Trump in November.

The World Turned Upside Down” was a song the British army band is said to have played at the surrender of Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown. That title applies to what happened in the U.S. political world in the five days from Feb. 29 to March 4.

    It is clear that Bernie Sanders is the only one who will beat trump and by a landslide. The Democratic Party uses Superdelegates exactly the same way that the GOP uses gerrymandering to suppress voters that they deem undesirable.

    Bernie has hit his ceiling. Everyone who is going to support his candidacy is already on board, and his strongest constituencies–young people and far-left ideologues–don’t turn out to vote with nearly the consistency as Biden’s strongest constituencies–African Americans and seniors. Basically all of Bloomberg’s supporters will turn to Biden, and I suspect most of Warren’s will too, albeit begrudgingly. Most independents are not of the democratic socialist variety. They are (or like to think of themselves as) centrists and pragmatists. They want civility and stability, not revolution. So no, there is no way Bernie would beat Trump in a landslide.

    And don’t kid yourself. Both Republicans and Democrats engage in partisan gerrymandering whenever and wherever they can get away with it.
