    Okay...

    Warren owned the night. Totally took Bloomberg out. That was such an embarrassing night for him mostly because of her outstanding performance. Bernie did second best. Pete looked weak and petty. Biden looked nonexistent. Klob made no ground but at least did better than Bloomer, Biden, and Pete.

    I've been fair to Bloomberg - he's remarkable at what he's done with his company. Very impressive.

    Between him and Thomson-Reuters, they invented high speed computerized trading.
    What a horrible thing that is, begging for government regulation. It's harmful. Bernie's plan isn't just good for getting money from it, it's good for reducing the activity. Most stock trades now are very short term 'high speed trading' that does nothing to create wealth, only to extract it.

    Except Bernie beat Hillary in 71 of 72 counties in Wisconsin. Bernie is the one who will do better - Biden is Hillary 2.0.

    Don't even try to worm your way out of your puerile comments with unprovable assumptions, CMP. Your own words prove that you couldn't care less if Trump gets reelected, and it's very likely that that's what you may want if your Personal Lord and Savior doesn't get nominated. Your attempts to stiff-arm me into voting for a socialist in the primary who has a pile of hidden baggage are so pathetically dumb that I'm surprised they didn't come from a Trump supporter.

    See? I can copy-paste my posts as well.

    Indeed it will.

    When we finally have a national election (partly), there will only be two or three people that win on Super Tuesday. Those will be the ones that get to stay on the island, while the others still in the race will be getting some phone calls that it's time to step down and endorse X candidate.

    Klobuchar, Warren, and Steyer are likely to get those phone calls as things stand.

    As stated earlier, Sanders is more likely to win in my estimation than any other candidate in the field:

    Bloomberg is unelectable for reasons that should have just been made abundantly clear.

    Buttigieg is a small time mayor who is utterly unqualified and is despised by both the progressive wing and minorities.

    Warren has the intellect and largely has the policy but sorely lacks charisma, and is essentially bereft of good political instincts; she would make a killer cabinet member though, like Yang.

    Biden... has dementia, and a notably more exploitable past.

    Klobuchar has the least charisma of any of the serious Democratic candidates by far, and also struggles with the progressive and minority vote.

    Meanwhile, besides consistently winning head to heads by substantial margins against Trump, including in pivotal states and the Rust Belt, Sanders is most trusted nationwide on the question of healthcare which is _the_ #1 issue according to Americans, surpassing the economy, and this to a backdrop of Trump cutting Medicare, Medicaid and the CDC to give himself and his rich friends permanent tax breaks, even as we look upon one of the worst outbreaks in modern history.

    Doh! Clearly you don't let historical data get in the way of your dreams bruh'! In the 2016 Primary, Bernie did not do well against Hillary in southern states.

    In your hypothetical, Bernie would need a VEEP that could help the ticket compete in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina.

    It’s amazing to me to see bernie’s people think he’s won and should be GIVEN the nomination with 3.9% of the delegates out.

    I’ll be voting for the candidate I believe can win a delegate in my CD out of the 4 available that isn’t named sanders, as well as get 15% statewide.
