Yea.....it may seem that way but that gives them the advantage of more easily rallying behind ONE candidate than the democrats.
Especially with Bernie Sanders. I'm just afraid that he splits the vote sideways giving Trump an easy victory.
The Dem party having dozens of candidates isn't something that just happened by itself, the establishment is working specifically against Bernie (and Tulsi Gabbard). The DNC, DCCC, Third Way, etc are working hard to suppress Bernie and other candidates like him. Tom Perez since early 2017 has done a ton against Bernie, purged Bernie supporters from the DNC, setting rules in place that will make it harder for Bernie to get the nom. Even just a couple months ago it was discovered that there are 'Stop Bernie' meetings going on w/ Pelosi, Perez, lobbyists, etc including people who are now prez candidates like Pete Buttigieg.
**There are dozens of candidates from states all across the country because the DNC is making sure there are enough candidates to syphon delegates away from Bernie keeping him from getting over 50% in the first round which will push it to a second vote where the DNC say they will then implement the superdelegates, and we saw in 2016 what happens when corporate superdelegates get to decide.
Not only all that but the MSM is back at it again with their Bernie Blackout, also polls are being skewed in favor of Biden and against Bernie (polling very few 18-40 and a lot
of 50+ also only surveying ppl w/ landlines, etc)
Bernie has millions of official volunteers, he's breaking small dollar donation records, top candidates are shamelessly adopting his policy platform and
strategies, he has a massive infrastructure made up of millions of supporters who organize at the drop of a hat for whatever is needed, etc etc etc etc.
Bernie could end up splitting the vote, that's what happens in democracy, the question is will the Democratic establishment again
suppress Bernie and boost a sh**ty corporate candidate like Biden/Harris/Buttigieg/Booker who all definitely will
lose to Trump, or will they actually back the natural frontrunner and have a good chance at winning.
(spoiler: They won't back Bernie/Tulsi and absolutely will force some centrist into the nomination and Trump will win)
