Sanders is only up 2 points on Buttigieg right now as more vote comes in. This may get interesting

Yes, but it's not really as simple as that. It sort of means that Sanders kept his hardcore base, which is solid. But it means that a large portion of his support switched pretty easily to other people. Most of which are moderates.

NH for example. He got 60% last year, and looks like about 27% this year. Sure there are more candidates. But it also is why i can't call what Sanders has "momentum" He's winning because he's in favorable states for him, and he is the only one that ran last time, so he has existing support and infrastructure from 2016. So i would say he's performing sort of as expected. Where Pete defied expectations by winning Iowa. Amy defied expectations by coming in a close third above Biden and Warren in NH. Biden and Warren have both failed expectations, Biden more so.

States like Iowa and New Hampshire can be successfully campaigned by a field of candidates. Bernie isn’t necessarily losing voters to other campaigns so much as he is sharing the pie.

To get a fuller picture of how Sanders performs versus 2016, I would want to see the Super Tuesday and beyond states. At the end of the day we are just summing up (Sanders + Warren) + (Yang + Gabbard + other) vs. (Biden + Klobuchar) + (Pete + Steyer + other). New Hampshire likes their variety this year, clearly. Let’s see how the progressive + outsider sects perform versus the status quo in states like California etc., that should be a strong indicator of whether or not Sanders is actually losing votes.

Looks like Bernie and Pete are within 2 points now. Pete's creating a little separation between himself and Klobuchar

Deval Patrick will drop out of the race tomorrow.

In other news... Deval Patrick was running for president, apparently.

I’m so looking forward to the thinly veiled homophobia that’s going to come out of his mouth as Pete remains in the race.

Also, I don’t think Pete is the gay Obama.

But he’s more than the gay Rubio.

Pete Buttigieg is the most cynical, empty candidate I've seen in some time. He has a remarkable ability to say absolutely nothing, and stands for absolutely nothing. Truly baffled by his appeal, though I don't think it will last once we get out of the two whitest states of this whole election season.

And yet the saviour only managed a 2 point victory in his neighboring state: one he won in a landslide last time.

A wins a win, but can't help but think that the Sanders campaign isn't a little rattled by him not coming close to 30%. Especially after the second place (tie) In Iowa

It’s funny how ridiculous these posts look right next to each other.

I thought I had a decent grasp on what those two states would bring a few days ago. Now I don't really have a clue.
