Amy Klobuchar Drops Out of Presidential Race and Plans to Endorse Biden
Ms. Klobuchar made her decision hours before Super Tuesday. She shocked the primary field with a third-place finish in New Hampshire, but ultimately could not compete with better-funded rivals.

I liked Amy, too bad she had to drop out. I don't like that she immediately backed Biden.

Strap in. Should be quite a ride tomorrow. Kinda cool to actually have my vote count this go around. Sucks for the people (1 million here in Cali) who've already voted possibly for the drop outs.

I predict Biden will win the popular vote by, I don't know... a million votes? But all of those votes will be in California. Trump reelected. But not a landslide.

I assume you are hoping Bernie doesn't do too well......

If Bernie wins out (gets half/+ states incl. TX/CA)....you are in big trouble, and Hype will lose his bet...... :flip:

Biden will (seems obvious to me already :eyes: :lol: )wither and die vs Trump.......

Just trying to be as clear and blunt as possible here, wouldn't want any confusion........:lolol:

So, Bernie is the only candidate who has stated unequivocally, and maintained over time, that he will do everything in his power to support the dem nomination. If he is to be believed and I know of no reason why he shouldn't be, I think it could be a real factor in a trump defeat. Obviously, I don't like that scenario. Really the only thing I am enjoying is how Bernie is making the centrist to right democrats squirm.

I follow the polls. The small windows of time are better prognosticators than the larger ones, but as the latter goes Bernie shows better than Biden in the General. Again, what Bernie says is fairly true; it would require a massive voter turnout, which as has been addressed here many times, is an American anomaly...but not impossible. Eventually, Warren supporters might be a reliable boost, but I don't trust Warren to an advocate for her platform unless she is the one fronting it. Gallantry isn't her strong suit.

Today will be a really good test of Bernie's prowess

I like Bernie. I agree with so much of his platform. But the establishment democrats appear to be dead set on preventing him from the nomination.

Yep, the fix is in, that's just politics. IMO after the early leads Sanders posted the first few weeks, the Dem party woke up and realized that if they wanted a real chance to beat Trump in Nov, they'd better start coalescing around Biden. Bloomberg just dropped out (that was a half billion well spent, ha ha) also immediately throwing his support to Biden leaving Warren the only one left sucking the few votes away from the other two.

Final numbers in.....

$452 Million/1,667,602 votes = $271.05 a vote.

Well, I will say I thought it would be much worse.....I still wouldn't vote for him for $270....would have to be at least $500.... :hehe: :lolol:

Bloomberg has dropped out and endorsed Biden.

The Democrats are starting to herd their cats. :lol:

Biden would be /fine/... not great. Not as inspiring as Obama, but probably a pretty similar administration. A lot of longstanding shitty issues the US has won't be addressed (let along solved) even if he is elected. It's not looking good, though.

I still don't think Trump has anything like Reagan-level support though, so I'm sticking to what I said.

Mockbee may be right since Mayor Pete dropped out before Super Tuesday. :hide:
Just to clarify, I think Mockbee may be right that Biden gets the nomination. I don't think Trump will win if he does the nomination, although it will be a nail biter.

Care to make a wager.... :hehe:

$60.
You: Biden wins electoral.
Me: Trump wins >45 states and >55% popular

Anything else a draw.

:noclue:


I need $60 more, after I collect from Hype, to get the book I want...... :lol:

Wow.

Sanders gets slaughtered..........

Can't even win King County possibly. Its neck and neck, he should have been absolutely killing it there. Same with Henneppin Co from last week. Those were his bellwethers....

California was a complete anomaly. Then he just won NH.....caucuses are stupid.

I always thought Biden would win the nomination, but didn't think it would be THIS easy. :noclue:
