    Cory Fucking Booker leading Trump by 5% in a nationwide poll, however early, certainly doesn't help Biden.

    Biden's whole appeal this early is to wishy-washy democrats is that think at least he'll win.

    Motivate people to vote for you and knock doors. I even can't imagine what a person motivated by Joe Biden to knock doors two states over would be like.

    I'm cautiously optimistic that Biden will be nowhere near the nomination when the dust settles

    Think that is between Buttigieg, Biden, and Bernie.

    I'd vote for Warren, but she is a woman and think her lane is convincing Bernie supporters that she is Bernie with a plan.

    It's fine to talk about obviously but X vs Trump polls seem pretty meaningless to me when the race has barely started

    Look at someone like Buttigieg. If you dont follow politics closely your main exposure to him is probably a town hall on CNN whatever, if that

    Bernie and his ego are too big for Warren to surmount and have a chance unfortunately.

    what exactly has bernie done with his sizable head start? he hasn't stepped on his foot like biden but it seems like if he was running a competent campaign (or was a competent candidate...), he'd have taken advantage of his significant donor base and notoriety.

    But if all signs point to a Trump loss and, even better, D pickups in the Senate, it’s pretty easy to see some sort of “National Emergency” being declared to postpone the election. He’s not going to accept a loss as legit, and there will not be a normal transfer of power.

    I keep seeing things like this and I'm wondering where it's coming from? Bernie really wanted Warren to run in 2016 but she didn't and ultimately, at least the story goes, that is why he decided to enter the race. He's by all accounts good friends with her because she's the only other senator that is as close to him on issues of attacking wealth inequality.

    If this is the case, it only solidifies my post. If he’s such great friends with her and they’re essentially in the same lane (they are), why is he not getting out of the way? E-G-O.

    I mean, if you were him and saw the huge numbers of younger people that responded to your platform, why wouldn't you run again? Maybe if he's gets fewer delegates than Warren and refuses to team with her at the DNC then this criticism would be more justifiable imo.

    Edit: And they aren't in the same lane, they're just closer together than either of them are to someone like Biden. He is absolutely hammering his message about M4A and eliminating private health insurers, Warren is not. This isn't a small point of disagreement.

    Sure, that’s fair. I’m just frustrated that there’s two strong candidates running in essentially the same lane that runs the risk of Grandpa Joe capturing the plurality.

    Warren is the better candidate, imo. That’s why I want Bernie to get behind her, not impede her/the progressive movement he worked so hard to build.

    The court would still need someone to round him up and who is that going to be? What officer is going to actually arrest the attorney general for contempt?

    If trump and his cronies were mothers of school kids or POC’s I’d agree with you.

    She ain’t going after powerful people. She’s still a cop and she’ll protect them because that’s what she does.

    The attorney general has a 24 hour armed security detail. Also, while the house sergeant at arms would be empowered to arrest someone for a contempt of congress, that post seems to be talking about contempt of court. I don't know if that falls under the sergeant at arms area of authority.
