    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.

    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.

    Whichever progressive can convince people they're the most electable wins the primary.

    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

    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.

    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.
