    I can tell you that he's a day too late. I've run out of options in the poll LOL

    Primary is stacked!

    It'll be interesting to see what happens due to such a crowded field. I feel like this would encourage more extreme (for lack of a better term) positions as you need a mobilized primary electorate to move up in the pack.

    If this were only three or four people I would give Bernie a low chance.

    However, in the same way that Trump had huge negative, but a contingent of people that would not leave him, Bernie's following will never go anywhere.

    That might be the exact secret to punching through the noise.

    @Zeph@Zeph
    I still think Biden wipes the floor with everybody if he wants to. But every new candidate that divides the vote increase Bernie's chances I think

    Sure.
    He's literally retarded, so he'll be in the top tier someday.
    He was handily defeated by any meaningful measure in any debate his handlers agreed to this last decade, yet still won the governorship.
    He's like the anal conception of Forrest Gump and Joe Namath.

    I'll admit I don't know Biden's history very well, other than his plagiary issues, but everyone I've listened to on the left think he'll be found out when he has to actually talk on issues rather than just wave and smile. Some seem to think he has a high chance of being #metoo'd as well, and from some of the videos he does seem a little creepy around young girls. I can't see him winning the Dem primary with something like that lurking.

    I'd say this guy is now the rookie of the year. I'm still voting Bernie but Buttigieg is looking like maybe the strongest candidate in the field even forgiving his impossible to pronounce name.

    Look into his bulldozing homeless camps when he was Mayor. Fake progressive is what I'm hearing.

    His dad translated Gramsci. Fake is probably a big stretch. Imperfect more likely.

    So far it looks like it will be Trump vs Biden. The insults and barbs back and forth will be epic.

    Beto O'Rourke apologizes for jokes about wife, says he has benefited from 'white privilege' - CNNPolitics

    Can punk rockstar Beto get through this primary without offending everyone...

    Hasn't won shit yet and he's already apologizing like a pussy. He doesn't have the experience to handle the storm that's coming.

    @Kneeblock@Kneeblock what % of the Democrat House or Democrat Senate would you estimate is more aligned to the left and what % is more centrist?

    If you will send Biden as Prez and Julian or Tulsi as VP, I'll burn by MAGA hat and send you the ashes.

    If you send Bernie, I'm going to sell my yacht and donate the proceeds to Breitbart.

    My wife is rolling her eyes. She was a little interested in Beto as he's from Texas and then heard the comment followed by the firestorm. She thought it was a cheeky way for him to acknowledge his wife's input into their family and that she was carrying that load. Perhaps because I've made similar comments about her holding our house together while I was deployed, she liked his comment. Saw it as a nod her direction. She then said she "hates fucking everybody" and didn't understand the controversy and thought he was a puss for apologizing followed by tossing in some white privilege comment as a catchall for his totality of controversies...all of which should have been nothings in her eyes.

    This is what the left has become. I enjoy watching the side show except when these people are in power than it’s no so funny. I don’t believe deep down anyone of them actually believe this kaka. It’s all just virtue signaling.

    I know people who think like this IRL. Always listening for an offensive remark and quick to correct other people. It’s a learned reaction and twitter is full of these assholes.

    He should've just said it was locker room talk and refused to apologize for it
