And I think that he was right to do it. I wish that Booker and Harris would have done more of it, so we would have had a more diverse field these last couple months.

But you're right. It puts him in a pickle with Bloomberg. Because he has to take the big money to stay in, which looks bad in relation to Sanders and Warren, but Bloomberg has all the money in the world to spend and he doesn't need to take money from anyone, including moneyed interests.

So in the end, Bloomberg really is as pure as Sanders and Warren. He can't be bought. But Pete, just to stay in the race will have that blemish on his fundraising .

There was really no good answer that didn't either give Sanders and Warren a win ,or Bloomberg a win.
I love how now a billionaire is pure! He’s a capitalist, earned his own money, pulled himself up by his bootstraps, we like that now!

Some of you guys are truly classics!

You have difficulty figuring out that not all Democrats are socialists. Time to turn off the Fox news.

edit: i went to search because i knew i never said something that fucking stupid, and yea you made up some fake news horse shit. i've said bloomberg's name twice in the past year here and one of them was yesterday's post about paying instagram influencers. the other one was saying that trump will call him a socialist no matter what. fucking weak, dude.

I've never said otherwise. But those sort of details don't seem to matter if you means you can hop in with a stupid comment that you think is a real zinger. Sad!

And I love how you seem to think that people here think that people that work hard and become successful is a bad thing.
Yeah, i got two degrees and worked my ass off to make decent living, but I make sure to tell my daughter to be as lazy as possible and she shouldn't have any goals, and capitalism is EVIL!!!

It seems that you like rich guys that have their money handed to them, only fail over and over and be bailed out by daddy, making sure to lie, cheat steal, and screw over as many people as possible along the way.

You are truly classic.

Do you think that this is an appropriate way to walk around in public where you will be seen by young children or people who have had gun deaths in their families and terrify the living daylights out of them?

YouGov Poll - Question asked of African American voters.
Who would you vote for as your first choice in the Democratic primary?

Biden - 43%
Warren - 14%
Bloomberg - 12%
Sanders 8%
Yang 5%
Pete - 4%
Amy K - 1%

This suggests that (at least as of now), Biden's South Carolina firewall will hold.

Which will then throw the centrist Biden/Buttigieg vote in disarray. (Amy K will be gone)

Allowing Bloomberg to step in and say "neither of these guys can unite the vote, but I can, also here is a billion or two of ads trolling Trump."

If the SC firewall fails, then it's a totally different ballgame.

He brings great humor in the form of a living meme, the notion that he’s just craaaazy about Jesus Christ. He’s soooo Christian. He’s so religious, he loves Jesus. He practices all of Jesus’s lessons. He is... Jesus freak!

I’m happy to listen and debate and argue opposing views. I’m happy to be friends with people who have other views. But an aggressive pseudo-Christian, no thank you.

Yeah, it does look like SC is holding for Biden so far. But SC is three weeks away. We'll have to see if it can hold as it looks like everything else is starting to crumble for him.

Two other takeaways.
One, Bloomberg at 12% at this point already, without him having been on stage as a candidate, or in the primaries, which means most people haven't even put him in the mix very much when thinking of who to vote for, is quite impressive.
It backs up my post from a couple days ago regarding Jason Johnson and Reverend Al saying that they were hearing Bloombergs name come up a lot with black voters. If Biden crashes, he is going to pick up a lot of support.

Two, I didn't know anyone could do worse than Pete with black voters. But Amy managed to, quite handily.

I’m still surprised that no one mentioned Elizabeth Warren finally being honest during the debate that the black community only matters to Democrats during election time.

I mean, it’s the truth, but no one here has thoughts on that ??

I’m still wondering why Republicans have done everything they can to appeal to whites only and be as repellant as they can to non-white voters when they know it’s demographic suicide. I mean, I’m sure the simple minded among us are convinced by a few SOTU plants who get scholarships like Oprah passing out Lincolns, but most people see through that.

Is it because racism inspires conservatives to get out there and vote as if the white race depends on it?

Thoughts?
