Looks like NH turnout is way up

Turns out Iowa just sucks.

It’s going to involve a salad and a hairbrush.

I think this is the key takeaway.

So far, this isn’t a movement. The argument for his candidacy — that he’s a left wing Trump who inspires nonvoters to vote — hasn’t yet materialized.

Considering that Sanders did better in 2016 in the whiter states with caucuses and worse in diverse states, this can’t be all that encouraging.

But Iowa and NH are bullshit. We’ll see.

That’s pretty much what I was saying earlier. Let’s get to some real states that aren’t so susceptible to someone knocking on their doors with free pizza.

Despite the narrative around the campaign (that was fair to an extent in 2016 but not applicable in 2020), I'm quite confident that Iowa and New Hampshire being so white hurt Sanders. Especially if his "competition" is Buttigieg. Which is what has me confident heading into the next two. That said, Nevada is hard to predict with it being another insane caucus. Let's not forget when they held a vote in 2016 to just throw a bunch of delegates out, and then ignored the results of the vote to keep those delegates and threw them out anyway. Nevada is a total toss-up.

To be fair, I'd Stan for Bernie if he offered me free pizza.

If I'm paying the money I spend on pizza to the government instead, in exchange for free pizza, well, then I save money in the long term. I think.

The government just won’t charge you for the napkins.

To Jerry. I agree that NV is now really strange to predict. Biden was the leader over 3 weeks ago. Now does he finish top 3? Steyer has spent a ton of money, so polling in the top 3, but will those really turn into votes? Bernie has made inroads with Latino voters, especially the Vegas Unions. Will Pete and Amy's momentum do anything for them here or will they land like a thud there. NV is a world away from IA and NH. Oh shit, and I forgot Warren!
If momentum does do something, you could have a very tightly packed top 4 or even 5. But again, with the split vote this would again put Sanders at the top.

Now for tonight. The takeaways.
Bernie did ok. And that's an honest take. If Amy hadn't had a surprise surge after the debate, Pete most likely would have won tonight.
Bernie didn't do well in the suburbs. I guess that isn't a surprise, but it is the key to beating Trump.

The youth vote was down 7% this time (most updated exit polling) It's hard to hop onto Bernie's message that it's going to be a monumental movement of young people turning out to vote to bring a victory against Trump, and also to pass his policies, when he gets 12% turnout of the young vote in very favorable state for him.

Sanders support plummeted with Independents from 2016. He got 72% in 2016, and 29% this time. Pete got 24% and Amy 18%. This means that independents broke to the moderate candidates.

Now the Delegate count:

Pete 23
Bernie 21
Warren 8
Amy 7
Biden 6

This is why NV and SC actually matter more than ever this time.

Oh, And Bill Weld got 9% in NH. That is remarkable. 12,000 people went out to just put a vote in against Trump.

DC has good fancy pizza. You can't just get a good slice for shit.

DC's bacon egg and cheese game is akin to the 62 Mets.
