“Tonight for me was dispiriting. Democrats are going to have to do better than what we saw tonight.”
“There was nobody I saw tonight that would be able to take Donald Trump out.”

Social media was on fire because of the battle between two of the frontrunners over whether Bernie said a woman couldn’t win the election.
This took the focus off of some of the key points made about policy by the candidates.
For example, Bernie Sanders confirmed he’d raise taxes on Americans who make 29,000 to pay for his Medicare for all plan. He also indicated he won’t vote for the pro-farmer USMA bill because it doesn’t include Green New Deal policies.
