Amy and Mayor Pete are probably the 2 best candidates for the Democrats

Bernie is a (likeable) wacko

Warren is a fraud and a phony and very unlike able

Joe is toast (Ukraine scandal pretty much finished him off)

Bloomberg would be good for the country but the real progressives won’t support him
Bernie would grow the economy.
Bloomberg would trigger the crash to wipe out your pension, Whitey

"The most common of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind". H. L. Mencken

A crash is on the way regardless of who gets in

No one actually knows whether Bernie would be good or bad for the economy.

Remember Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugmans dire warning when Trump got elected......how did that work out?

As Joseph Stiglitz, the Nobel laureate economist, has pointed out, US performance remains poor by the standards of its peers in salient respects, notably life expectancy, employment ratios and inequality

Well you have a huge (no pun intended) obesity and opioid problem over here. The regular person who takes good care of themself is living just as long if not longer, especially if they live in a wealthier state

That is true but life expectancy is falling so the negative seems to be outweighing the positive.

Why? She's ahead of Biden in delegates and came third, ahead of Warren, in New Hampshire. She's one of the better candidates.

Like all stats regarding the United States there are wide disparities between different states

Life expectancy is actually increasing in Massachusetts

Great clip circulating of “Amnesty Amy” calling for a fence to be built at the border

Think there are numerous stories about how abusive she is towards her staff and although there are a few articles out there they haven't even scratched the surface!

Delegate count:
Buttigieg 22
Sanders 21
Warren 8
Klobuchar 7
Biden 6
Bloomberg 0

Betting odds for 2020 winner:

Trump 8/13
Sanders 4/1
Bloomberg 9/1
Biden 20/1

Bloomberg took a hiding last night. He was like a duck out of water. Warren obliterated him. Will be interesting to see how that affects the polling numbers over the next few days, and if his high burn rate can take the bad look off it. I just wish he'd get out of the race and put his money into something useful like flipping the 4 senate seats we're going to need.

That’s seriously good odds on Trump

Oh yes, Trump still the hot favourite. Will be interesting to see what kind of a ticket emerges from the Dems, it'll have to include Bernie if they're to stand a chance of changing those odds.

Communist? Bit harsh. But yes, Bloomberg is a Republican from the days when the GOP tolerated moderates.
