    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
