BTW SR, I wholeheartedly agree with everything you say here, outside being in Sanders camp and especially your last paragraph.SR wrote: ↑Sat Sep 14, 2019 7:01 amWell, these summaries completely ignore the General Election polling. I'll save you the effort....I am aware of the polling issues in 16.
Booker has no chance. Biden will be an issue if he gets the nomination. I viewed the debate a bit differently than what I have heard described. I saw a couple of functional nominations; I saw a couple of excellent tickets, and I saw a snapshot of a few very capable and serviceable cabinets.
With the exception of Jay Inslee, who I think would be an excellent Energy or EPA chief, there were qualified people for Chief of Steff, State, Education, HUD, and Defense.
I am most impressed with Buttigieg. By far, the best thinker on the stage with neither too much nor too little idealism. I remain in the Sanders camp.
I think a real issue for trump is his declining popularity with his more silent base. Farmers and steel states are bewildered with what has transpired in the last few years. I still don't understand the postion that trump is not vulnerable in 20
I was impressed with the candidates in the debate as well. I am just comung in hard on the electability front from the workung class perspective.
