Bernie won popular vote in Iowa and New Hampshire. No candidate, Republican or Democrat, has ever had a victory in the first two states and not gone on to win the nomination.

The Guardian publishes piece containing the outlandish claim that Warren has defined the terms of the ideological debate & shifted the party left. Bernie is the one who moved the party with his 2016 run and the entire field has had to move left to meet his platform. The article was an opinion piece, by Moira Donegan, but that does not mean complete falsehoods should be allowed unchecked. This is an explicit example reflective of a theme across the media, where much of Bernie's success is slowly being shifted and credited to Warren.

Sanders low ceiling mythThis article is just an example of the "Sanders is stalled, has no room to grow" trope, based on no evidence. The article itself is all over the place--claiming Sander's steadiness in polls is bad, Biden's steadiness good; Warren's gain, though still significantly behind Sanders, is good for her. It gives Biden credit for increasing 3 points in early primary states then adds a paranthetical that Sanders also increased by the same amount in those states. Since this reporting, Sanders has demonstrated an equal rise to the one Warren is credited with here, but received no credit nor reportage of that. Also, worth noting that Sanders went on Joe Rogan's podcast in August & within one week received hundreds of thousands of comments saying when hearing Sanders speak for himself, rather than the media's negative reporting of him, people all across the spectrum find themselves surprised in really liking him. This suggests it's not about a ceiling, but rather about breaking out from the media spin.6/25/19WaPoPolls, Minimize, Framing
The media has mostly ignored Sanders front runner status in New Hampshire. They finally acknowledge it here, but call him a "very weak frontrunner." In the same week, pundits called Buttigieg's fourth place in this poll a "strong fourth." They go on to compare Bernie's current % in polls to previous Dem races with far fewer candidates, as well as Rep races in past primaries. Note they even use Sander's OWN win in New Hampshire in 2016 as a demonstration of how weak he is in the state now. They base that on 2016 polling projections when there was a field of 3 Democrats, compared to the 20 candidates running in the Democratic primary today.
