'The Wall St. Journal editors are worried. Following the Nevada caucus vote
they wrote.... Republicans shouldn’t be too sanguine… A majority of
Americans aren’t socialist, at least not yet... That’s an election Bernie
Sanders could win…"

'Here is Terry Sullivan, former campaign manager for Marco Rubio: "If I had
a dollar for every voter I’ve heard say, ‘I don’t agree with everything
Donald Trump says, but I like that he has the guts to say it,’ I could buy
Trump Tower. Mr. Sanders is benefiting from that same sentiment.”'

Serious questions remain, including regarding Sanders' claims and the
counterclaims. Here are some of the considerations.

A Sanders victory, both at the Democratic convention and in November, is
very far from guaranteed, but no longer can either be all but ruled out.
What can be even further ruled out is a "return to normalcy".
