Why are these candidates dropping out before the primaries though?



How do you pay a campaign staff, travel, lodging, food, signs, mailers, heaven forbid tv ads with no money?




Some candidates are doing it. I guess the ones who dropped out aren't fit to oversee a federal budget anyway, they must've misspent their donations.


Dozens of failed businesses and bankrupting a casino five times didnt seem to matter to...aw, forget it. I gotta stop expecting conservatives to actually own their st.

Anyway, the money...

TV ad spend so far...

Tom Steyer (Who?) $47 million
Michael Bloomberg (In two weeks) $35 million
All other Dem candidates combined... $15 million

Im just as partisan as the next guy, but if anyone wants to discuss the swing to oligarchy we are looking at here on both sides of the ball, Im game...

Giving this a bump up....

I dont see much activity from the base that regularly checks in here to feast on the impeachment tidbits. There is an election coming and the impeachment gamble is all thats getting the base jazzed-up it seems.

I kinda liked Mayor Pete in the wine bunker with the billionaires. He has an Obama-like appeal, but not to the point of charming people into awarding Nobel Prizes based on appeal alone and not results based. The country wont survive another all-talk no- action style of governing (Obamas last term).

Yes it will too survive just fine. We are surviving the Trump fiasco, and will survive another four years, and will survive whatever after that.

Trump is killing it in Milwaukee, Wisconsin tonite, the state Hillary never visited in 2016. The crowd even brought back the "Lock Her Up" chant. Nancy is supposed to be serving up the Articles of Impeachment as well. Number one economy, Number one oil & gas producer, Stock Market close to 30,000, record low unemployment. In contrast on this historic night to all this is the democratic debate with Sanders and Warren squaring off to see who can go further left.

Based on what Ive heard, no Democrat is even close to winning. Ive been watching each of them fall into the mud-slinging and verbal jabs and name-calling back and forth with Trump, which is exactly what he wants. He smiles and laughs every time he drags one of them down to his level, because then the right can say, See? They are just as bad as Trump.

The biggest mistake Democrats are making is ignoring what made Obama so dominant - his cool composure and refusal to go low. That type of personality is kryptonite for Trump. But unfortunately for the left, I dont see any of them portraying the level of skill and composure that Obama displayed. Obama still has never even mentioned that clown by his name. Obama makes Trump look so pathetic in comparison. If a Democrat would simply follow that lead, theyd win. Every time I hear Biden, Warren, or Sanders jabbing with Trump, I see Trump and his supporters smiling with glee. Trump is winning big time, sadly.

We have passed the dumbdown failsafe. Unfortunately democracy requires a certain basic level of enlightenment of the citizenry to function. This is why it never could have existed before the Renaissance. And so we descend back into the status quo of elite tyranny. It was fun while it lasted, naught but an ephemeral pipe dream conjured up by a comfortable educated merchant class well versed in the Enlightenment thinkers. America was the crowning glory of the Age of Reason. The curtain of ignorance and superstition falls, close of play, The Age of Reason is over.

2020 will be the last election.

Disagree. president Obama was that one in a thousand type of diplomat, the right man at the right time. The lack of a Candidate of any caliber capable of attracting the type of popularity or media attention needed.....is on the Democratic leadership. What in the Hell was Tom Steyer doing out there? Where is Andrew Yang?....Elizabeth Warren?...Really?...Bernie Saunders?...These are the best this party has to offer?

As much as I dislike the current administration, it looks like the Democrats are beginning to disintegrate.

The infighting seems to be turning off a lot of potential voters. Elizabeth Warren's new claim that Bernie told her that a woman couldn't become President reminds me of the Modern Family episode where the female real estate agent (played by Ellen Barkin) throws herself into the bushes (while the clients aren't looking) and then accuses Phil of pushing her in. Bernie denies making the comment ... leaving voters with a "he said - she said" dilemma.

With the exception of Bernie, the Dem's are really starting to unfold as gentler Republicans in Democrat clothing ... or what I'd call, "centrists".

Buckle up for four more years of the orange one.

Two ex-Massachusetts governors, Deval Patrick & Bill Weld, are in the race - like predecessor Michael Dukakis, they might move up the ranks toward nomination -
w/Trump being so unpopular, apparently, its surprising to see so many of his enemies conceding how imminent his his re-election is

Was there a debate last night? thought there was one scheduled

For the past 5 years, Trump has tried to turn Americans against one another and its own government, in support of foreign adversaries, and even asked for violence towards American protestors in exchange for paying their legal bills, and you are still afraid to take him on. There's a mentally deranged fame whore working with foreign governments to attack the United States, and you somehow find a way to place the blame "squarely on the shoulders of Democrats". It ain't right to turn a blind eye to what's happening in the White House.

"Democratic leaders are terrible", "the economy is great"......Trump supporters will go down in history as the only group of voters in U.S. history to ignore dangerous tangible evidence in front of their eyes, because of their belief in things they cannot measure.

Maybe that was just something said when Biden happened to be on screen. Are you sure she was talking about Biden and not your . . .

Reminds me of a 1970s movie where a wedding night segment had the wife disrobing and telling her husband that nobody except her doctor had seen this. She didn't know that earlier in the day he was getting out of the backseat of a two door car when the best man slammed the door on his 'gentleman's' tackle".
He said got ya beat and threw open his robe revealing splints and surgical tape claiming, "Mines' still in the original packing crate."

Looking back on the recent CNN debate, I didnt see a single candidate who could give President Trump a run for his money in a one on one debate AND be electable. I mean Bernie is seasoned enough to do well in a debate but he is a completely un-electable socialist with empty promises of a commune lifestyle. Warren, Snyder, Yang, Klobushar, Buttigieg I could not see them in the role of a commander in chief standing up to Iran or North Korea.

Just because they don't fit into your "Big Daddy" kinky roleplay doesn't mean any one of them would bend over for hostile nations.

So any time anyone disagrees it means intolerance of "narrative"? How about we just plain old disagree? And what's with your constant repetition of the "narrative" buzzword? It is already a clich.

It doesn't matter who the Dem. nominee is, it's all about turn out and if the Dems. turn out like they did in the 2018 mid-terms Trump will be in trouble. I'm not saying he'll necessarily lose, but the Dems. will get behind the eventual nominee and make it a tight race. All this talk about the Dems. imploding is wishful thinking on the part of the Trump supporters.

One other interesting caveat is the money Bloomberg and Steyer have pledged to bring to the cause even if they not the nominee. And while Trump has a large and growing money count. The combined Democrat haul thus far has outpaced his fundraising and I suspect will continue to do so but soon all for the nominee.

I don't see any of them saluting a North Korean general like Trump did.

People need to keep in mind, the winner is really dependent on the winner in about 5 states. The rest of the country doesn't matter. If the Democratic candidate can beat Trump in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Florida...that's all that matters. If the Democratic candidate doesn't appeal to voters in those states, Trump wins. Trump's favorability never changes. The cult loves their leader no matter what he does. All that matters is voter turnout in a few states.
