Back when Bernie Sanders was the front runner, many feared that if he did win the nomination that several Democrats wouldn't mind a second Trump term and would only half ass support Sanders. Maybe a quite endorsment and just let the election play out.

It was obvious the full weight of the party was trying to elect Biden. From Sanders to Obama to Hillary to AOC all worked really hard to elect Biden. Would the same be said for Bernie Sanders?

He overall does about the same as Biden imo doing a little weaker in the EV but doing a little better in the popular vote
Bernie would do better in Iowa*, Michigan, Ohio*, Texas* and Wisconsin while underperforming Biden in Florida*, Georgia* and Pennsylvania (Sanders would still hold PA).
*indicates states that Trump won would win against Sanders.
Sanders probably wins with the 290 map.

The party would get behind him, but as soon as he lost, he would be more hated than Hillary was after 2016, and so would his base. It's actually a good thing for the progressives going forward that he didn't end up getting the nomination.

The party was planning to sabotage him if he was the nominee. They would rather have lost to Trump than won with Bernie.

There is absolutely no evidence to support this.

Not at all, and those that are are replaced by a more excited base and all those Hispanic voters that fled to Trump.

I agree that the party would've quickly rallied behind Bernie in a world where there's still COVID. In a COVID less 2020, I don't think many would've been so quick to rally,  and the Media in a COVID less world almost certainly would've preferred Trump to Bernie, as I remember the media coverage Bernie was getting prior to South Carolina, when he was the front runner. I remember CNN and even some on MSNBC were starting to give Trump positive media coverage (I believe Trump was in India at the time) and that changed once Biden won SC and sailed on Super Tuesday.
