Good God. Pete is looking at over 15m in Q2... Not sure how that matches up but that seems like a lot
Pete’s smart to put up his number early like he did last quarter. He came in fourth but it got him a few days of publicity alone before the others’ numbers came out. For what it’s worth, $15M would have put him second behind only Bernie in the first quarter.
He’s been a reliable Democrat for a very long time. A sizable chunk of the Dem base has been aware of him since the 70s or 80s. That familiarity breeds acceptance and affiliation. Being a Democrat was different 30 or 40 years ago than it is now. A lot of Dems don’t have the same revulsion newer voters have to older policies and beliefs. But his support will fade just like in 88 and 08, he won’t win.
The DNC raising the debate donor threshold to 130,000 donors is going to really scale down the field.
That's for the second round though right? Basically giving time to make up ground after the first.
Is it? I saw it on Booker's TF.
I know like 7 have gotten there, but i thought the 65k stood for the first round. The percent in polling is going to kill a bunch though.
Watching Colbert. Beto is good but I see why Pete has run over him, it's almost the same message just delivered in a different way. He got passed in his lane, I'd still vote for him without question.
Yeah, the 2nd debate requirements are much more stringent. It'll drop from 19-22 participants to 8-9 real fast.
Seems like if Kamala can't win California, she should start thinking about how to become the next AG.
It is very surprising she'd be polling that low in her home state.
Whichever progressive can convince people they're the most electable wins the primary.
Not to be too Captain obvious.
Completely agree Warren has ran the best campaign.
My dream scenario is Warren and someone like Admiral Bill McRaven as VP. I would believe in this country a little bit again
McRaven is a freaking sick name. Comic book-esque.
yang gang lol the sick memes tho
Yeah dude sucks
Post some about his circumcision policy
I'm unfamiliar with it but I also tend to completely avoid that topic on the internet because it's awful.
Yang weirds me out, he is basically a less strange Zuckerburg imo.
Down to 20
Bullock, Moulton, and Messam are out of the debates.
ah damn really thought what’s his name moulton or who’s it messam had a chance to win in 2020
They really need to do a varsity and JV system. Like 6 people would be left.
Warren just got fuccccccked lmao
I feel like it gives her a good shot to outshine everyone if she doesn’t act like a crotchety school librarian the whole time
Why the fuck did they put Warren with the non-contenders?
Excited all the same.
It gives her a good shot for nobody to see her debate, because who the fuck cares about any of those other candidates
Warren got screwed ratings wise, but she is going to mop the floor with that group.
Wow Warren got completely fucked over with that bullshit
Ratings will be lower, but Warren will do very well in that debate and it will be covered a lot in the 24 hours between the first and second debate.
The whole random draw thing was dumb as hell to start. you were asking to have a Bama v. Alcorn State situation in the "playoffs".
first debate doesn't mean that much anyway. won't really matter until there are about 6-8 people left imhv
It's a shame we didn't get a Biden vs. Warren matchup
Beto and Booker will bring views. I’m not sure this matters much.
Joe. Time to go.
Lol. Diamond joe should go down in flames but who the fuck knows anymore.
the bottom part was cut off so at first i assumed this was going to be talking shit about the other female candidates and expected to see "@kamalaharris tells girls she will throw their parents in jail if they skip 3rd period"
I thought it was going to be a “girls” vs. “women” distinction.
It’s Harris who is going to excel in the debates, not necessarily Warren.
But the clown car format doesn’t allow much time for anybody. Long way to go before there is substance and depth.
You spelled “any” wrong
Kopmala is done. She's trash and the debates will expose her further.
Your thoughtful and eloquently articulated opinion is interesting, but likely wrong.
Harris will do well in the debates, and perhaps will emerge from the pack a bit.
