Funniest moment of the debate...

Majority of the people in prison on marijuana charges are people of color.

Majority of legal dispensaries are owned/operated by white people.

The only thing funny is you not understanding the issue and then trying to turn it into a joke.



Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Here it is, boys and girls.  Democratic elites are saying the quite part out loud.

"The party decides its nominee. The public doesn't really decide the nominee"

Obviously we are all aware of superdelegates and all that but to hear this to blatantly stated. So obviously intended to prevent a candidate like Sanders the nomination.  It's such a "then why fucking bother having primaries and caucuses at all" moment.

The New York Times have a lengthy and detailed article about it: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/27/us/politics/democratic-superdelegates.html

Long Story short, DINOs and Dixiecrats fear and hate Sanders more than Trump and want to get rid of him whatever it takes, even if the party would get split in two by doing so.



As a Canadian the general consensus is that Bernie has the support but Bloomberg has the money. But since a socialist platform is far from a country wide sentiment it basically means it’s gonna be Bloomberg vs Trump in 2020.

The other candidates are dead in the water and they just don’t accept it yet. Anybody care to enlighten my outside perspective, is it accurate?

I'll open up with the national polling aggregate from Wikipedia:

As you can see, Bernie is far up front and the lead is growing.

However, Biden stopped dropping while Bloomberg got put down a peg after everybody ganged up on him, and Warren is following just behind.

If Biden does well in SC, he can keep his position as Bernie's main competitor for now. We'll have to wait until Super Tuesday to see what numbers Bloomberg is really pulling, but if he can't break out that day he may as well drop out then and there.

Biden surges in South Carolina which votes tomorrow, and this could give him momentum into Super Tuesday.

This is by far not over. Especially considering that the party seems willing to go very far to stop Sanders. As I see it he needs 55% of pledged delegates.

So after the Bloomberg camp claimed they didn't 'buy' the debate audience, some media authors who wrote about it were suddenly slammed by a huge deluge of messages from Bloomberg supporters about it all being 'normal' which was in itself not normal.

Yep, nothing to see here folks.

What a bunch of hogwash.  There's nothing to see here.

It's not hard to see why Bloomberg is inspiring such a passionate defense: we they know he can get things done and decimate Trump if given the opportunity.  Believe in him and he'll find a way to reward you for it!

I'm a bit skeptical of the latest polls. One shows Bernie at only 11% (normally in mid-20s, so over twice that result), the other one drops Warren to 5% (normally around 10%) out of the blue, her lowest since she started running. Both have Biden at over 40%, way above what other polls show (even in the same timeframe).

While I was expecting Biden to win, I don't expect him to win by a large margin.
