When did mayors start carrying political clout on endorsements
I think it’s just because it’s the Austin mayor.
Well then he’s lost my vote
It would've still been during the final round
figured by this thread that he actually controls the weather.
PA system interrupts the pastor's prayer. He made a joke and went on, but it was a foreshadowing of the poor production values of the event. I thought the West Sac mayor did a decent job, but bringing out the staff who obviously had no experience in speaking to or working a crowd stunk. The high school teacher made a forgettable little speech about how they knew he was destined for Big Things way back when, and then just walked off the stage. Then nothing happened for 15 minutes. Way to kill the momentum. Then bring out the placard cheer squad that hadn't practiced the one simple job that they had, raising their respective placards to the beat of the boot edge edge cheer. They finally get in sync, then the cheer dies and they walk off stage. Just awful. Austin mayor did a decent job, but after waiting for that amount of time in lousy weather, he could have sped up his cadence to get through his speech a little quicker, since nobody was there to hear him anyway. Finally Pete does his thing, and all is right with the world again.
Live broadcasts are tough. Even the Academy Awards messes up from time to time. But for all Pete's recent "you only declare once, we want to get it right" talk, this wasn't great.
Early in the final round is not the same as down the stretch. And if Tiger wasn’t in contention the interest in it wouldn’t be nearly as great. Plus, it’s a golf tournament, not a Super Bowl.
The masters is the only golf tournament I can name. If there’s one, it is The One.
Yes, it’s the Super Bowl of golf, but it’s not something a political candidate should schedule around. It’s ratings are in the ballpark of a Sunday Night Football game on NBC.
You know, the NFL called Donald Trump and asked him to reschedule the 2016 debates because they didn't want to go up against Trump in the ratings.
Production value for his announcement was below par.
Time to find someone else to support.
Live as the millennial candidate, die as the millennial candidate.
His merch rollout thing was pretty cool. You can pick from multiple colors, fonts, designs in an a la carte fashion and then order a shirt or whatever. You can also take that design and send it out to have a banner, yard sign, or whatever else, made on your own.
I didn't say that. You did.
I still want to work for the guy.
Home from the Pete rally, it certainly had bumps but overall was really good. South Bend police are saying 3k inside and 7k outside which in this weather is insane. I actually at one point said to myself that he "Obama'd" Good fun on a Sunday. Hearing that Tiger won was the cherry on top.
Yang is solid. Not sure he can beat the moron but I like him.
Yang is polling at one percent. I don't think we will have to worry about the prospect of him winning or not
Dead man walkin. We got a dead man walkin here.
This ain't it, Eric
Vote for a Democrat so a team of Republicans can influence policy.
What a loser
Just got this in an official Gravel 2020 campaign email.
wait, so giving every person 1K makes Yang fans sick?
grateful for the second tweet.
Give me these four on a debate stage:
—Pete Buttigieg: 9%
—Beto O’Rourke: 8%
—Kamala Harris: 8%
—Elizabeth Warren: 7%
Four or five debates and let the best man/woman win. Winner pick one of the other four as a running mate and let’s lock up the next 16 years.
The Biden/Sanders overlap is weird.
but not the ones polling 3-4x higher?
Old people like old people in charge
Many voters are largely non ideological
Lot of people still go by who they actually6know
One of whom isn’t even in the race yet. Do you typically put people in debates that aren’t in the race?
the first debate is 2 and a half months away
Has there been any polling on how Pete is doing with the religious demographic yet?
Curious if he makes his faith a part of his platform if that could swing some of the white religious Trump supporters or if all they care about is abortion.
You didn’t answer my question.
How many Southern Baptists (or their pastors) are going to get on board with a gay Harvard liberal from the north? I would say not many
His messaging on this is pretty good, but you are right, that could be an issue. SC might tell the story.
Very. Guessing it's name recognition
I mean it's not a unique weakness for him. Pretty much any Democrat is going to do poorly with those people.
16 years is mighty ambitious. Maybe 4.
