Now Klobuchar Ends Race; Are Alleged Moderates Dropping Out to Boost Biden?

If the idea is to free up their supporters so they will migrate to Biden, I'm not sure that works:

Given that Buttigieg's supporters favor Klobuchar, but Klobuchar's favor Buttigieg, maybe they will go to one of the alleged "moderate" candidates now that both are out.

But this doesn't look like it will shift the vote all that much.

But maybe enough to make a close Bernie win a close Biden win.

Bernie is going to win the radical track - Warren is going to get ground into dog meat under him.

===========

Yes, and early voting has been going on for WEEKS.

This happened in 2016, too. Rubio got like 10% in a state weeks after he had dropped out. He didn't get delegates because it was first past the post, but that was 10% that could have gone to undermining Trump for another candidate.

The Establishment pushed all this early voting nonsense, and I hope they're enjoying it.

61 All fifteen of Klochubar's supporters migrated to Sanders, probably. Look I get she won a state the size of my back yard but she's a non-entity.

Here's my napkin sketch of things as they stand now;

Biden: probably won't last much longer health and mind-wise
Sanders: might die before the convention from another heart attack
Warren: will drop out soon from lack of money
Tulsi: will drop out soon from lack of money and momentum
Gloomberg: nobody likes him but tons of people owe him favors, so he has lots of political clout but no voters

Who the hell wins in this scenario? Even if Sanders and Biden somehow survive, they're so damaged at this point they're going to be severely crippled in the general.

And those who figure Hillary will step in; her health is at least as bad if not worse than Sanders. And she hates campaigning and even her own party despises her.

Michelle Obama is not going to do for anything that involves actual work or trouble on Michelle's part.

Where's their white knight? I think as the weeks pass, Democrats are going to get more panicky and freaked out because they can see no matter how this turns out its a freaking disaster.

More than 2.7 million voters in CA returned ballots in early voting. Buttigieg was at 10% in recent polls in CA. Steyer was at 2.7%. If the early vote mirrors the polling average, about 324,000 Californians already cast ballots for someone out of the race.

It's not really to boost Biden, ace. Otherwise, Bloomberg would be forced/asked out. Biden will not be the DNC nominee, either, because he would lose even more spectacularly than Sanders (who possibly could win).

It's a strategy to help boost Biden over 15 percent in enough places so Sanders doesn't become inevitable and Bloomberg, or someone else (just as likely), gets the nod on the second ballot. But the Left might want to be like me and others who opted not to crossover in open primaries to vote for Sanders to sow chaos: be careful what you wish for. Sanders might benefit if Bloomberg and Biden divide the Kloubuchar and Buttigieg votes pretty equally and neither gets about 15 percent, or at least in not enough places.

Maybe it was both. They were led into a room at the DNC inner sanctum, and show a table. On the left side is a chrome briefcase open to reveal $5 million in cash. Next to it on the right is a Luger outfitted with a silencer.

298 "If the idea is to free up their supporters so they will migrate to Biden, I'm not sure that works"

I don't think the DNC wants all the moderates to drop out...a one on one race between Bernie and Biden gives Bernie too great a chance to get a majority of the delegates. Instead, I think the DNC wants Bernie and 2-3 other candidates splitting the delegates in each state to ensure no one has a majority going into the convention. The more it's split, the lower Bernie's vote share, and the easier it is to steal.

Klobuchar and Buttigieg were sacrificed before super Tuesday for this. Warren would be, but they're hoping she can at least split the delegates for MA. The establishment likes her, too as she has shown herself very willing to sellout to them, so maybe she'll gain some support enough to help split delegates down the road.

I don't believe for a second he is in this to stop Bernie and save Wall Street. He is in it because he wrongly believes he is the indispensable man.

332 Can someone please give me a Readers Digest Condensed version of ballot harvesting? I'm not entirely sure I know the process.

As I understand it, volunteers go to homes and visit to "pick up" ballots that the people there have "filled out" but not mailed in.

What I take this to mean is that they go into some homes, help them fill out the ballot, then take it in, or just get ballots and fill them in as they wish after getting the signature.

333 "293
Wait, what does Biden have to offer anyone?
He gains very little clout from a stupid SC primary."

Biden isn't the intended nominee. Two thing support this:

1. There is no move to push out Bloomberg; and
2. Obama won't endorse ol' Joe, even now.

The idea is to keep the delegate count carved up just enough to keep Sanders below the magic number. It might work IF Biden and/or Bloomberg hit 15 percent in enough places. They also could cancel out each other just enough not to meet the threshold in enough places.

Regardless, the DNC will flat out take away the nomination from Sanders.

Immense. I'm sure the media would like to announce a 30% fatality rate. Undoubtedly people lied about their travel contacts, and a few subclinical cases worked at the nursing home.

how it's done in Philadelphia (West, North, parts of South and Southwest Philly) is that ward leaders have the list of all the possible names from the census, they put together absentee ballots for everyone in their wards, and just go ahead and deliver them boxed up already to the polling place.

some of those people will also vote in person, I'm not sure what is done with those votes, maybe they are also counted, maybe not. this is how you end up with more votes COUNTED in each ward/district in the ghetto than there are warm bodies. oh and all Dem, absolutely ZERO for the republican candidate, not even by mistake.

370 The Dem horse-race is even more boring than usual. And probably inconsequential. Trump's fate is in his own hands, and he's in good shape. The down-ballot results will be a result of how lackluster the GOP is, and how lazy or dumb the electorate is (both factors are gravely negative).

Trust that the House GOP will avoid anything remotely approaching any hint of a specific promise or goal or agenda this cycle, per usual.

The Tea Party anomaly has faded and been swallowed/smothered. And the descent of the Dems into madness makes "hey, what, are you going to vote for THEM?", the key crutch of the seat-warming useless GOP, even more effective with the incompetent electorate.

And thus, CA has no national political relevance. They simply don't matter. Their electoral votes go to the Dem. It isn't a question and there is basically no chance of an upset. The House is fairly stable and we can assume 1-2 reps decay away from the GOP every two years until they are all Dems.

California has a lot of landmass, industry, agriculture, population and money - but it is completely irrelevant nationally. Their lock-step and nearly perfect political monoculture has ensured their irrelevance.

I agree, Hillary is poison to US, but we're not everybody. Recall that Trump didn't win by all that much last time, and Hillary's claim that she beat Trump last time has legs with some people. The DNC will probably want a more traditional nominee than Sanders, which narrows the field to Biden and Hillarhoid.

And the Bernie Bros and other hard-left are going to go all-in on violence and vandalism pretty much regardless of how things play out. I fully expect a replay of Chicago in '68. So the DNC has nothing to lose there; they're hosed either way.

486 And thus, CA has no national political relevance. They simply don't matter. Their electoral votes go to the Dem. It isn't a question and there is basically no chance of an upset. The House is fairly stable and we can assume 1-2 reps decay away from the GOP every two years until they are all Dems.

California has a lot of landmass, industry, agriculture, population and money - but it is completely irrelevant nationally. Their lock-step and nearly perfect political monoculture has ensured their irrelevance.

Absolutely correct. The only relevance of California: by moving its primary up to March, it yanked the entire Democrat field hard to the left. Which (God willing) will make the eventual nominee tough to elect.

Biden has pretty strong support from black voters, which is why he did so well in South Carolina. Where he's weak is in the wine mom demo, so Klobuchar is a pretty good pick. Either Klobuchar or Buttigieg, actually.

I suspect the fixers and consultants really see no way out except Biden. Democrats need black people to show up to vote; otherwise they have no chance. Trump ties "stop and frisk" around Bloomie's neck and hangs him with it, so that pretty much leaves Grandpa What Is My Name.

Some of the state shitheads (yeah, Scott Wiener, I'm looking at you) are pushing legislation to ban restrictions on housing density, in a bill called the "Cornhole the Suburbs Act."

Who's exempt? Why, Marin County, by happy chance.

558 What a Clusterf*ck. Think about this. Biden trounced in South Carolina (according to what was provided to the public). BUT...look at the polls of North Carolina (which isn't a whole lot different for it's neighbor to the south).

Sanders 31%
Bloomberg 18%
Biden 14%.

Yeah, I believe Biden topped 50% in South Carolina legitimately. They can't even cheat with subtlety.

561 >>That's a pretty easy thing to believe. If she'd actually showed up in the battleground states instead of taking victory laps in California a week before the election, she likely would have beaten Trump.

I really wonder if that's true. How many people in Michigan said to themselves "If Hillary had done a rally here I was going to vote for her but she didn't so I got high instead!".

Trump didn't do a rally in RI. I still voted for him. I think the truth is that the Democrat party is starting to lose support in the Rust Belt and they are looking for excuses.

And Hillary beating Trump LOL, seriously???

She couldn't beat him last time when he was considered a joke candidate, with the Obama machine behind her. An established popular president with a roaring economy and her even older and less liked? Even her own party is joking about her murdering Gloomberg if he chose her for VP.

566 I have some of my mom's stuff. She's still alive and SHE has no trouble off-loading stuff on me. In fact, recently she said that I should take stuff and get rid of it if I didn't want it but she was having trouble getting rid of it. It dawned on me that I'm being used as a go-between for her own sentimentality. Even weirder, she's not sentimental about stuff she should be sentimental about, but rather expensive high heeled shoes, etc.

My dad is a hoarder and I've had to sneak things out and throw them away. It doesn't go down well when I get caught.

It is a mental health problem, but I don't know you treat it. He's not one of those people on TV that live in a garbage pit, but it's just every stupid thing is hard for him to toss and it just starts piling up. He has a storage unit that I also think is full of just crap.

It's made me better about throwing things away seeing it.

SCE wants a 15% increase in electricity rates. High than the highest rates makes business move. Which means losing population but working population, ag, money, but it can be made up with welfare illegals and the homeless.

579 Eric Trump this morning on Fox pointed out how odd it is that Buttegeig has been running for the Dem nomination for over a year and then 36 hours before Super Tuesday, he drops out. Why would anyone do that to either themselves or to their campaign staff that has been working hard to get them votes. Eric said he wants to know what Buttegig was promised or offered to drop out Saturday instead of waiting like a normal campaign would do and see what is up after Tuesday.

Rush said he believes Buttegieg got a call from Obama. And then Amy got one this afternoon.

I don't believe it's the VP slot. It's money, or threats. This "good for the party" crap on the eve of a big primary is BS.

580 5 dead in King County, Washington. Wonder if they kept records on the people who flew in to Sea-Tac and passed temperature tests? Just so we can find patient 0 and point fingers.

My analysis is there will be many more deaths. When will the clown car of officials in King County set up covid19 drive through test sites like they did in South Korea?

My inside source at Costco says all bags of rice are gone in Woodinville. Seeing the anthill/parking lot yesterday I can believe it.

I did get six packs of Huggies Wipes and a bottle of vodka at the grocery store yesterday and will be constructing alcohol hand wipes.

Hillary's lack of campaigning that last week of the election highlighted her attitude that the American public owed her the Presidency. It's the same holier than thou , I'm your better attitude Bloomberg has.

591 This is great for my favored "NO ONE" to win the majority of pledged delegates. Basically the formula for "NO ONE" is that enough votes have to go to the #2 and #3 and maybe #4 candidate that #1 is denied getting to the 1,991 majority to claim the nomination on the first ballot.

The problem with six candidates was that that if five of them all got 10% of less then didn't get any delegates, and it was like a two person race again, where someone is most likely going to get to the 1,991 cut off.

Now with four people it's a lot more likely that every race is either a three way or four way delegate split, which is terrible for Bernie. He needs over 50% in many contests to cinch this, but it's going to be getting way less with Warren taking 20% and Bloomberg taking 20% and Biden taking 30%.
