Great points. Traditionally candidates run to the hard left or hard right while they are in the primary, but then tack back to the middle in the general. I can see most of the candidates doing that easily, I don't see it with Sanders. He has always been hard left and will refuse to change his stance to win over the moderate independents. And his team is just as partisan. He doesn't have the traditional mix of radicals and realists. I could easily see Sanders winning Iowa because it is a caucus and fired up partisans go to those. Then he will win New Hampshire because he is right next door, this should put him in pretty good shape for Super Tuesday. The one problem? SC already pointed out, Warren is stealing from his base.

ScienceChic wrote: Clinton may have moved to NY in order to run and win as Senator (according to one political commentator I follow, she's never won a tough election and wasn't that strong of a presidential candidate, as evidenced by her loss when it should've been an easy win), but she didn't leave NY after she left politics and she did accomplish a lot for NY while in the Senate. The question is, do New Yorkers consider her a New Yorker, and does she consider herself a New Yorker now? Not that it matters, because she's not running so who cares.

I respectfully disagree that Warren had the easiest path to the nomination. She's always been a divisive figure, and her foray into identity politics was a disaster that is still haunting her. She's smart, but she has complicated plans that make the average American tune out, and her plans are too progressive/not realistic. Plus, she and Bernie split supporters. I don't see her making it past South Carolina's primary.

I still like Klobuchar the best, but facing reality, she's not going to get the nomination.
Election Update: Two New Polls Show Biden’s Upside Scenario

Dear Democrats, Here’s How to Guarantee Trump’s Reelection
You’ve got a historically unpopular opponent in the White House, but there are nearly a dozen ways you could still blow this.
By CHARLES SYKES, The Bulwark | June 25, 2019

Trump’s numbers are unmovable, but yours are not. He doesn’t need to win this thing; he needs for you to lose it. There are millions of swing voters who regard Trump as an abomination but might vote for him again if they think you are scarier, more extreme, dangerous, or just annoyingly out of touch.

Here are 11 pointers on how to guarantee that the most unpopular president in modern polling history wins reelection next year.

1. Hold firmly to the idea that Twitter is the beating heart of the real Democratic Party.

Woke Twitter is convinced that anger over Trump means that voters want to move hard left. You should ignore polls showing that most Democrats, not to mention swing voters, are much more likely to be centrist.

2. Embrace the weird.
3. Keep promising lots of free stuff and don’t sweat paying for it.
4. Go ahead and abolish private health insurance.
5. Spend time talking about reparations.
6. Trump thinks that immigration and the crisis at the border are winning issues for him. They aren’t. But you can turn that around.
7. Lots more focus on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
8. Socialism.
9. Turn the abortion issue from a winner into a loser.
10. You can also turn a winner into a loser on the issue of guns.
11. As you try to get Americans more alarmed about Trump’s attacks on democratic norms, make sure you talk as much as possible about your support for court-packing.

From Tulsi Gabbard's website tulsi2020.com 1/22/2020
"Tulsi Gabbard, a United States Congresswoman, Army National Guard Major, and 2020 presidential candidate, today filed a defamation lawsuit against Hillary Rodham Clinton. Gabbard, a U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district, asserts in her complaint that Clinton deliberately and maliciously made false statements in an attempt to derail Rep. Gabbard’s campaign, by alleging that Gabbard is a “Russian asset."

Hillary certainly knows how to make friends.

I wouldn't recommend publicly going against Hillz.... just ask FBI Special Agent Sal Cincinelli.

Oops, new story out about candidate Senator Amy K., it appears as a prosecutor, she was ignoring donors that had committed crimes to go after the companies of her political opponents.

CNN plans to host numerous town halls with the Democratic candidates before the New Hampshire Primary on Feb. 11th. While Deval Patrick, Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang all received invitations from the network, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) was passed up.
And still, to this day, Gabbard has no idea why she was excluded from the line-up.
"We have reached out, I think more than once and we received no explanation and I don't even think we've gotten a response to date about why they're excluding the first female combat veteran ever to run for president, the only woman of color in the race," she said.

This is CNN's contribution to the democrat party.

Hillary refuses service in lawsuit
nypost.com 1/30/20

Hillary Clinton has now twice snubbed a process server attempting to deliver the defamation lawsuit filed against her by Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, according to Gabbard’s attorney.

“I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” the congresswoman’s attorney, Brian Dunne, told The Post. “But I guess here we are.”

The democrat field continues to thin:
townhall.com 1/31/20

Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney dropped out of the 2020 presidential race on Friday. It's a bittersweet ending considering he was just a few days shy of the first real contest, the Iowa Caucus. The Democratic contender explained that he will "not have sufficient support to get to the 15 percent viability threshold" needed on Monday night.

Remember him? He was onstage for the first debate.
