Sanders may be in a downhill situation, especially with older Democrats due to his terribly made comments as to Castro and 'Communism' as well that to pay for his grand plans would mean massive tax increases on the middle class discourage many from wanting him as the candidate
Biden may become the default moderate candidate, despite his terrible personal flaws, a long political record, his age, the scandals surrounding his son Hunter (drug addictions, the Ukrainian no-show job).
One thing I fear is a Progressive 3rd Party candidate that will take votes from the Democratic party candidate and effectively let in Trump again, especially in a close election.
Bernie will be just fine and is leading in the big states on Super Tuesday. Also he is leading in Michigan and Pennsylvania at the moment, states the democrats need in November. The States that Biden is leading in are not going for the democrats in November regardless of who the nominee is. I noticed this in 2016 also and felt the DNC should have paid attention that the fact the Bernie won Michigan and Wisconsin and made a huge mistake not putting him on the ticket with Hillary in 2016.
Also I do not get what is (rationally) so controversial about the Castro comments. He said essentially the same thing that Bloomberg said about China when he said Xi Jinping was not a dictator when being interviewed by Margaret Hoover. Also Obama said the same thing that Bernie did and I have news for all American being someone who has been to Cuba. The US government has relations with dictators far worse than in Cuba and that also want to screw US interests a lot more than Cuba does.
Agreed. Bernie has good support in the states that matter.
