But can he win?
Case for Sanders to win nom: He'll be furthest left in party/electorate moving left. Came in 2nd in 2016/will enter race 1st among those in (if he gets in before Biden). Large field could aid by allowing him to win w/ pluralities/makin it tough for establishment to get rid of him

The “frontrunner” is already cancelling interviews, though:
Two sources familiar with Sanders media plan told me his first TV interview of the campaign was going to air on @UnivisionNews. But when I checked with two Univision sources they told me that while an interview had been scheduled, it had been canceled. https://t.co/DU1KeVIDV2
