As the New Hampshire primary results were coming in Tuesday night, showing three candidates with double-digit support and two in the “top tier” barely holding on, CNN’s exclusively liberal panel had fears that the nomination processes would take too long and the candidates would damage each other too extensively.
Former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) broached the subject by pointing out how “five people are coming out still in this race after New Hampshire” and “Michael Bloomberg sitting there with a billion-plus dollars.” “This thing can go any way,” he said.
CNN’s chief political analyst, Gloria Borger and former Obama advisor David Axelrod agreed that the race could drag until the convention:
GLORIA BORGER: To the convention.
DAVID AXELROD: It could go to Milwaukee.
MCAULIFFE: You bet could go to Milwaukee. Nobody knows how this could go.
When host Anderson Cooper wondered “Is that a good thing?” He was met with a resounding “no” from seemingly the entire panel of liberals. “No, the longer we go everybody's fighting and then you got to wait until the end of July to get organized,” McAuliffe added as CNN host and liberal activist, Van Jones explained how Trump would be “building, building, building, building,” during that time.
