Climb that mountain Bae
Shiiiiit she might have a shot
There is no might, she does have a shot. The earlier she can peel off Bernie supporters, or if by some miracle of god Bernie were to drop out, the better.
for any Final Fantasy VI lovers out there... I decided to tweet thread about the Dem candidates as FFVI characters:
won't really move the needle if you trust the polling on second choice candidates
what will is continuing to campaign well and explain why she should be president, which is a more compelling case than many of the other candidates
If this comes to Bae and Pete I will not know what to do with my hands.
Warren/Pete or Pete/Warren ticket idgaf either way but to me that sounds great to me.
warren wouldn't take a vp gig imo
BRB donating errrthing to Warren.
I don't understand Biden's appeal beyond lovable uncle Joe + Obama's VP. Like, at all.
He authored the 94 crime bill ffs
People have internalized him as being the most electable because he's old white and boring.
It's the perceived safe play by people who just want Trump to lose.
The thing about perceived electability is it's a self fulfilling prophecy. And stupid.
Agreed completely, the perception also isn't based on anything empirically to begin with.
I largely do because most people don't vote ideologically so assuming the majority of bernie fans would go to Warren is slippery.
It is closely aligned with can have a beerability and is the country ready for a _______ presidentability. Old white guyability basically
Given how early in the process it is, how determinative name ID is at this juncture (see: poll adjusted #s Anison posted on this page), I would not trust second choice #s. Or at least I am not.
My point is historically voters aren't good at determining ideology of candidates let alone grouping them by it. When candidates drop out the distillation of their supporters tends to be roughly equivalent to the overall polling of who is left. We're enormous outliers paying this close attention.
Exactly. Voting by "electability" gives your vote over to other people. Hopefully, people realize the masses are flocking to Bae, Biden's support will collapse. Hopefully.
She needs a good showing in Iowa, then hopefully Biden gets run over
Baes following is extremely online.
Hahaha, Hickenlooper is trying to reply guy Sander's on the DSA speech he's giving. Not working out well
I am not getting off the Yang Gang Train until that mutherfucker derails
what derail mean to you?
he drops out?
or polling below 1 percent?
Drops out. I just hope someone like Warren can put him in charge of initiating the UBI so it is done correctly if he does not have a magic surge in electability.
People who dont understand why Trump won think Biden can magically make those people vote for a Democrat again
Also I was listening to the Deconstructed episode about Biden earlier and apparently he got 0.7% of the vote in Iowa in 2008 lol
Bill Richardson got more support
He withdrew before even making it to Iowa in 1988.
Apparently Biden's 1988 campaign tanked thanks in part to his propensity to plagiarize coming to light. The summary of his 1988 campaign on wiki is brutal.
If you guys like reading about elections you guys should check out What It Takes by Richard Ben Cramer about the 88 election
Biden had a bad stutter as a kid and apparently one of his teachers nicknamed him "B-B-Biden"
Warren has been running by far the strongest campaign of anyone thus far. Idk what other candidates are doing with their time and money, but they need to start spending it.
Also if Beto, kopmala, hickenlooper, Castro, gilibrand, booker and klobuchar could get lost that would also be swell .
I agree completely, I can't figure out why she does not get the media buzz. I guess her message is to "heady"? I love Pete but for a hard follower of this stuff she is killing it.
And in true sociopath fashion he’s trying to dictate Biden winning the Dem ticket by stating he may reenter the race if Biden doesn’t win. Which tells you all you need to know about Biden.
Not from the campaign but. Yeah
If Pete isn't president at some point in my life, I'm going to die very sad.
I think she has a unique ability with policy. I think if other candidates could do the same, they would.
It's more than that. She's also been first to respond to changing news. She lead the charge on impeachment. She's basically doing a rally /campaign event every day.
She's not really dominating any one aspect but she has been putting in the work and spending the money and it shows in the polls.
It's even more impressive that she's surged this much with Biden, buttegig and Sanders dominating cable news airtime.
I think you are going to be ok. If not for BAE he'd crush this. 8 years from now I think it is a landslide.
