Rush is so wrong about the corona virus that even the lunatics at Free Republic criticized him for it

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.
Odds update:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 7/2
Bloomberg: 8/1
Biden: 22/1

Bernie's odds moving in the right direction. Biden, not so much.

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 1/1
Bloomberg: 4/1
Buttigieg:8/1
Biden: 9/1

Update:
Delegate count:
Sanders 31
Buttigieg 22
Warren 8
Biden 8
Klobuchar 7
Bloomberg 0

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 3/1
Bloomberg: 10/1
Biden: 25/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 5/6
Bloomberg: 4/1
Buttigieg:11/1
Biden: 11/1

Interesting that Chrome still thinks "Buttigieg" is a typo.

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 29/10
Bloomberg: 10/1
Biden: 28/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 4/5
Bloomberg: 4/1
Biden: 10/1
Buttigieg:12/1

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 3/1
Bloomberg: 12/1
Biden: 12/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 10/11
Biden: 4/1
Bloomberg: 11/2
Buttigieg:20/1

Bloomberg and Buttigeig getting it tight.

Bernie's odds are slipping slightly in the general election, but he's still the favourite to get the nomination.

2020 winner:
Trump: 8/13
Sanders: 10/3
Biden: 9/1
Bloomberg: 12/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 10/11
Biden: 13/4
Bloomberg: 6/1
Buttigieg:20/1

This stock market crash might throw a spanner in the works. It was this kind of October surprise that worked in Obama's favor in 2008 when "the fundamentals of our economy [were] strong" until they weren't. Trump might cruise to reelection if the economy stays strong, but the coronavirus could change all that.

Get in there Bernie!

Delegate count:
Sanders: 58
Biden: 50
Buttigeig: 26 (I wonder what happens to delegates after a candidate pulls out)
Warren: 8
Klobuchar: 7

2020 winner:
Trump: 4/6
Sanders: 3/1
Biden: 13/2
Bloomberg: 16/1

Democratic candidate:
Sanders: 1/1
Biden: 5/2
Bloomberg: 7/1
Hillary Clinton(!): 33/1

This is the first we've seen Trump's odds moving in a while. Could be the coronavirus effect. Damned if I know why they're showing odds for Hillary instead of the likes of Warren or Klobuchar who are actually in the race.

I know, let's antagonise Trump supporters. What harm can that do?
I have more respect for a man

Klobuchar is out

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/newsirelandgeneralelection/klobuchar-ends-campaign-for-president-endorses-biden

Widely regarded as potentially strong general election contender against Trump, Klobuchar's centrist positions against Medicare for All and a Green New Deal put her out of step with the activist base that is more influential in party primaries and caucuses.

I wonder if those odds are not just about electability. If Biden overtakes Sanders as the more likely nominee, it'll be interesting to see the effect that has on Biden's odds of beating Trump.

Expect Lindsay Graham to announce all kinds of Hunter Biden and Ukrainian election interference  investigations by the end of the week if Biden does well tomorrow.

Trump is betting on a strong economy to win.
Coronovirus is sand in his vaseline.

Hence him trying to play it all down. Officials speak right in front of him saying that the number of infections is going to go up, and he comes to the mic and says the number is going to go down. It's almost like he thinks the stock market will just believe any sh1te he comes out with.

Trump has dementia but the GOP need him
The run down to the election is going to be nuts.
if trump has dementia what does joe Biden have ? he canít get through a sentence without making a balls of something and thatís the guy Bernie is going to get shafted for . Dementia is far from a laughing matter and joe should not be out there under that pressure.

Biden and Trump both seem to have dementia.

Where is the evidence Bernie is going to get shafted?

Will I be shafting him when I hold my nose and vote for Biden in the NY primary? Biden is not my preferred choice, but Bernie IS my least-preferred.

The US is a plutocracy. The Democratic Party is as corrupt as the GOP.

...whether the 78-year-old billionaire can salvage his campaign, including through a stronger performance in the next debate on Tuesday, or whether, after spending more than $400m of his vast fortune so far

https://www.ft.com/content/73b3ebfe-5e21-11ea-8033-fa40a0d65a98

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, the wealthy Democratic donor, said that Mr Bloomberg has entered the race with ďthe best of intentionsĒ but called on him to divert his resources to Mr Biden. ď[Mr Bloomberg] is devoted to defeating Trump and [had] worried that Sanders and Biden could not do it. Biden has now rallied and found his connection to the American people,Ē she added. ďI hope that Mike will realise that his best role at this point is to use his vast resources to support Joe Biden.

the other candidates pulling out the day before Super Tuesday and backing Biden was a coincidence I suppose , vote for who you want to j70 itís a free country Iím sure Bernie wonít take it personally. As a side note that guy from the young Turks ran for Congress in Los Angeles yesterday and got his arse handed to him .
