The one who was on track to winning the nomination before the Democratic establishment millions of voters rushed to stack the deck against him go to to polls and vote for someone else that they liked better.
FTFY
This only happened because Obama told Buttigieg & Klobuchar to drop out in the days between SC and ST. Without that, Sanders would have won MA/ME/MN/TX and still be in the driver's seat.

My point still stands - Biden only won because the Democratic establishment stacked the deck in his favor.

Bernie is... NOT A DEMOCRAT. Why should Bernie have even been allowed to compete in the Democratic Primary at all? Period. And Bernie was a horrendous candidate, he is way too far to the left of the country, Trump would have beaten him.

Bernie/Lizzie would've been the dream for full SocDem policies but as the year unfolded it's clear only Biden could've won. Biden's political positions are "Generic Democrat", and that's what they needed to unify the base and consolidate support w/independents vs an incumbent. Thing is an incumbent usually only loses when their base is fractured, it was clear as the early numbers came in that Trump had only expanded his base. A more leftist Dem would've been susceptible to the rally-around-the-flag effect.

Yep.
