There are more than 20 Democrats running for their party’s nomination. And only a couple of candidates have an actual legitmitate shot of being the Democratic nominee for president.
We all know who those candidates are, right? Say them with: Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. The rest of the people running are simply wasting their time and other people’s money.
Regardless, MSNBC, an overwhelmingly left-leaning channel, thought it was appropriate to ask Bernie Sanders are leaving the race – even before the first Democratic debate.
MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt asked the Vermont Independent senator if he would leave the race if it was apparent Bernie was not going to be the nominee.
MSNBC's Kasie Hunt asks Bernie Sanders: “If it’s clear that you are not going to be the Democratic nominee, will you leave the race before the convention?”

The media seems determined to clear the field early and often for Biden. Perhaps MSNBC should ask the other 10 candidates who are polling in the low, low single digits.
I’m not Bernie Sanders fan, I’m not into providing for people who refuses to help themselves but this question seems really out of line.
