Nate Silver on Sanders
Nate Silver of fivethirtyeight has some astute analysis here. If Sanders can generate recognition in other States beside Iowa and NH he might have a chance. Silver though is assuming Sanders will only carry the white liberal Dems, as in IA and NH. I'm guessing that Sanders will start to carry minorities and even some Republicans as his message gets out, since his positions are favored by the majority of people regardless of Party. Plus if he does carry IA and NH that will generate a lot of press and more people will become aware of him and his populist positions.
