    Mayor Pete comes out throwing haymakers and connecting!

    Complete shitshow.    Now they are blubbering about climate.  Just funny shit.

    Pete is getting more impressive with every debate.  The rest are clowns.  Bloomberg is clearly rusty, but not doing terrible given the attacks he's getting hit with.

    But I'm afraid they've already sunk Bloomberg as a Presidential candidate.  Sometimes it helps to get the dirt out of the way in primaries, but in the #MeToo era the many non-disclosure agreements might be insurmountable.

    Except the only thing that might be more entertaining than watching Trump win re-election, is watching all the TDS people try to justify voting for Bloomberg instead.

    Also, I love watching Bloomberg school these commie bastards on business and economics.

    His commie comment and knock on Bernie for his 3 houses were good.

    Otherwise, Bloomberg took so many bombs from the other Ds and looked bad in spots. 

    I'll give the Ds this...it was entertaining....

    Warren throwing darts left and right and the Pete and Klobachar back and forth was fun to watch. 

    Bottom line though....it did little to stop the Bernie train. Bernie is likely going to have the most delegates.

    I do find the cognitive dissonance astounding that all the people on that stage last night who want to do away with the electoral college were completely fine with super delegates deciding the nomination.

    What is crazy is you look at that stage and wonder who is the first one bowing out.

     

    I see Biden coming up with a "reason" to drop out.

    Pete has big money behind him.

    Amy might take a deal to be VP...if not she stays.

    Warren?

    Bernie?

    None will drop out till the money dries up.
    Bernie definitely isn't dropping out. Hes the only one who stands a chance to win enough delegates.
    The rest are hoping they can keep the money coming in long enough to steal enough delegates and let the super delegates give them the nomination.

    If Biden can win South Carolina...he isn't dropping out before Super Tuesday. 

    After March 3rd is when I think you will see a number of folks drop out depending on how they do that night.

    If I had to guess, I say Amy and either Pete/ Warren drop out after Super Tuesday. 

    Although, with the screwed up way the Ds award delegates through proportion instead of winner take all like the Rs, a lot of them could stay in the race for a while if they continue to accumulate delegates.

    And I disagree on Bloomberg. He got bodied last night.

    Thu, Feb 20, 2020 12:11 PM

    Bloomberg got slammed last night, but his dig on Comrade Bernie was pretty epic.

    Maybe for conservatives. It didn't do anything to Bernie and only hurt himself with the Dems. Dude should drop out. I thought he was gonna cry last night.

    I saw a clip of Warren giving Bloomberg the business. I enjoyed it, because f*** that guy.

    New polls out for three swing states: PA/ MI/ WI

    The Ds lead in two of the three, with Trump killing it in WI.

    I think if that happens, it would pretty much be a tie. 

    https://poll.qu.edu/2020-presidential-swing-state-polls/release-detail?ReleaseID=3656

    I believe I saw that if Trump loses PA and MI, but holds Wisc and the rest of 2016, he would win by 2.  But if he loses the 1 vote in Nebraska I think, it could be a tie.

    My biggest question, and it will be bigger question in the swing states, is how many "left leaning" voters "stayed home" in 2016 because EVERYONE was so SURE that Hillary was going to win in a landslide?

     

    If there is even an appreciable amount of those voters that come out in 2020 it could swing it to the D candidate.

    If any of these fools win.....there goes 20% gains on my property value and retirement accounts.

    Tell us more. Where do you own property that will drop 20% due to who becomes president?

    Turnout will be the election. That is why I think Ds are freaking out because if they get the pick wrong and they can get get turnout high, boom, Trump wins easily. 

    If the Ds can continue the turnout they got in 2018-2019, I think they feel like they have a chance.

    Bro....as long as the Senate is still controlled by the Rs nothing Bernie, Warren, or even Pete throw out there will ever see the light of day. The market will probably be more like Obama's last years, which was fine low growth, but no big shocks.
