Fucking insane what these Dem candidates are doing. They are actually stooping so low as to court our votes by... releasing policy proposals.

Wow biggest drop out so far, defiantly make sense though never really found a crowd and after her first debate performance wasn't really able to sustain that and make it into the 2nd tier of candidates. Hopefully we get a couple more to drop out but I'm guessing most will wait at least till Iowa that have the money till they figure out what they want their next move to be.

Is it protocol to back someone else when you drop out? Who do you think she would back?

This only mildly surprises me. I assume with the Impeachment hearings hitting the Senate in January/February the Presidential Candidates from the Senate would be forced to stay in Washington instead of campaigning in Iowa & New Hampshire. This would basically be a death blow to Harris, Klobuchar, Booker and Bennett's (He's still in the race???!?!?) candidacies in my opinion. Sanders and Warren have the name and platform recognition to scale back their campaigning in early states and spend more time in the Senate without too big a hit on their chances. I would not be surprised to see others pull the plug soon as well.

She ran the worst run campaign in recent memory.

She basically hired Hue and Freddie, had them split HC duties, and then sat back as they lost game after game, but content to see them duke it out with each other.

Too bad she dropped out though.

I could have her back up in the polls within a couple weeks.

When I run for president on the platform of "Not a politician or celebrity" I'm gonna need you to organize my campaign. Thanks.

With Harris out, it is getting more difficult to see how Biden loses.

Unless Pete wins IA and NH and stream-rolls with momentum, he may, Biden is cruising with the moderate votes.

And unless Warren or Bernie all of a sudden become beloved by the Black Vote, they are simply not going to win enough delegates.

Bernie's base is more diverse this round, and he's leading in New Hampshire by the latest poll. For a while it seemed like Warren was the obvious frontrunner in the progressive wing, but Bernie isn't done at all. In several states I believe he's behind only Biden with multiple minority groups.

If he gets a big early win, Bernie and Biden could be their own tier and the tides could shift pretty quickly.

But at least some of that is hopeful thinking, as I think Bernie would be much better for America than the lack of vision Biden offers.
