    The big debate in Texas politics now is whether Beto is a net positive or negative for a campaign because he rules up the other side so much. It’s ridiculous but that’s actually happening.

    it’s all happening because he spend three weeks canvassing in a trump +12 Houston suburb for a Texas house special election in January and his candidate lost bad and the chuds rejoiced in him being toxic due to his take muh gunz comments.

    I’m sure he’ll be back out there soon. Flipping the Texas house is his stated goal though. It’s Gop +9 and the dems are forecasted to gain 7 seats right now.

    she has no path to the nomination unless everyone else besides bernie drops out. so thus zero path

    if she fights for the same things bernie does as has been claimed by many, she will drop out and endorse bernie after nevada.

    I'm sure this has occurred to all of you already, but this is exactly how things went for Trump in 2016. People kept downplaying his victories right up until the moment he seized control over the entire party.

    i have been told the key is to stop trump so i would argue the best way to do so is to consolidate around the front runner to ensure unity. especially if that front runner shares your values and progressivism

    the fractured and crowded primary and the media’s incapability to cover them are actually very similar

    that nuance will be lost on idiots like the cuckster tho

    I am on record in this thread saying Bernie has the best chance to beat trump and that seems more and more true now than ever.

    that being said, I am getting more and more pessimistic about the D chances of victory in November.

    Also I’m a dummy who thought Kamala had a real chance after her evisceration of Biden in the first debate so take all this dumb nonsense as some guys gut feeling (obv).

    She hasn't endorsed him yet but man is she getting close. I didn't like her taking the donation earlier and got shit on for it, maybe rightfully, but that fucking sucks because it will 100% still influence the vote for our primary in Georgia.

    ummm, some of these Democrats are essentially Republicans, particularly in cities that don't have contested general elections. DC for instance -- Muriel Bowser and her political allies (Brandon fucking Todd - my councilmember - comes to mind) are basically Republican-lite. Take huge money from developers, anti-living wage, love them some gentrification, big supporters of charter schools, etc.

    Speaking of which:

    1988 was never really close. Dukakis won the first 7 primaries/caucuses.

    On Super Tuesday, Jackson won Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Virginia.

    Dukakis won 9 states that day, including Texas and Florida.

    The overall popular vote was 42/29 in favor of Dukakis.

    The current race has much more potential to split if Biden can regain his footing, which isn’t looking likely right now.

    apropos of nothing, Jackson's '84 convention speech was one of the great speeches in American political history. It makes me an old man now, but I remember where I was when I watched it, and who was in the room with me.

    It's really creepy to watch all these politicians take Bloomberg's money for endorsements.

    I mean, I'm sure it happens all the time with candidates making promises for cabinet positions or other wink-wink agreements for policies or programs that will benefit the endorser, but to see it done so blatantly and brazenly is just leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

    We're watching a man with 60 Billion dollars buy his way to a presidential nomination and he's not even trying to hide it because he knows he can get away with it.

    I suppose, doesn't make it okay.

    I don't recall Trump buying endorsements. If memory serves very few endorsements ever came to him in the primaries.
