Ok. so NV. Looks like I was almost spot on with my guess on the first choice ballot.

But off on the realignment.

At this point, it looks like almost all of Steyers realignment went to Sanders. Right?

I've never heard of Chris Matthews prior to the other day but the guy's absolutely losing it. Bloody hell.

It would appear that the answer to the "did the debate move the needle at all" question is a resounding "not at all"

It really is amazing that an actual white nationalist is a top aide to the President and it’s gotten almost no coverage in the major press. Absolutely wild.

Klobuchar needs to go. Warren kinda needs to as well if the best that debate performance can do is 4th.

He actually found a woman willing to marry him (she is the spokeswoman for Mike Pence so I guess garbage attracts garbage).

A totally worthless and irredeemable person.

i encourage anyone who thinks that sanders is divisive and just constantly criticizes everyone and everything that isn't already on his side to watch tonight's victory speech.

My concern was never really with Bernie himself - I think that he can run a capable campaign, he obviously is very charismatic (as opposed to let's say the wet paper bag that is Bloomberg) and his supporters will at least go to direct war to the death with the MAGA crowd which has been allowed to loudly bray over the rest of humanity for the last 3+ years.

My concern is with the Senate and Congressional races. Bernie doesn't do anything outside of his own campaign IMO. And to be fair, this was one of the biggest criticisms I had of Obama and his people - they had built an incredible electoral machine but really had no interest in down ticket races and so his prize was dealing with McConnell. Just stupid and shortsighted. IF Bloomberg is willing to spend a billion on downticket races in the event that Bernie is the nominee then I think they may be in the bag. But that's a big, big, big if.

I would rather the party start to cultivate great candidates in those red areas that aren't as conservative. Look at McGrath and McConnell. She's no progressive, but she has an impressive background that could actually make that race winnable.

Some people clearly have a lot more confidence in the intelligence of the general electorate than I do.

Absolutely. The fact that Warren seems to have stayed static, and Bloomberg only lost about 2 points in a poll following the debate. Shows you that this race has solidified much more than people have been saying.

Amy definitely needs to go. Warren will have to after SC. Where she will probably finish 4th or 5th. She is picking up zero delegates in either of these two races.

Remember, a woman came out with detailed account of Trump raping her in a dressing room, and is actively using legal measures to get Trump's DNA to test against a dress.

This was a one day story, and the DNA story didn't even make the news.

Nothing matters anymore.

The president is not a billionaire, is not a real estate developer, has real legitimate lifelong mob connections that are well documented, has committed numerous crimes in plain sight, has dozens of legitimate sexual assault accusations, including his own ex-wife.

Nobody should be shocked by anything.
