  • Biden may be less popular in Democratic population but more popular in total population. [2]
  • If they don’t put Biden in, and Sanders edges out Hillary, DNC risks losing the general election.
  • Despite the press saying “Hillary Won!”, Google Analytics and Godaddy online polls show much stronger response for Bernie.
