Five Thirty Eight: “[political scientist Seth Masket] turned to the 60 Activists twice recently… Every time [he] heard again of about 35 activists. For those, only nine said they had a candidate…, The level of indecision seems to be not all that unusual, given the size of the field. Most of the contemporary presidential nomination contests have an obvious front-runner, but if you don’t (as was the case with the Democratic field in 1988), the activists can time the election of a candidate. Several … suggested that you wait until the summer or fall 2019 [or wait for them to] meet with the candidates before their heads. … Overall, in February there were five candidates — [Kamala Harris], and [Cory Booker], Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar — who considered or has been committed by more than 35 percent of these activists.

Sanders said he thinks he can defeat Trump in Florida, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan-four swing states were key to the president’s victory in 2016.”
