What I find most notable is the leading candidates from Iowa are a gay man and a jew, yet Biden's results are characterized as "relatively close".Doc wrote: ↑Wed Feb 05, 2020 5:09 amInteresting article MiloMilo wrote: ↑Tue Feb 04, 2020 11:09 pmWow this Biden sycophancy is getting a bit unhinged.
Don't have the energy to post it all but this is some straight up propaganda!

The Democratic party has always had difficulty keeping their widely ideological diverse base together. It has the equivalent of a Donald Trump every election cycle. The idea that sanctioning debates a year and a half before the election and six months before the first primaries would help them determine a leader in the race that the DNC establishment could live with has had the reverse effect. The debates were extremely boring and even worse obscure.The meltdown in reporting results made it extremely unlikely that the full momentum that has often followed a caucus victory would flow to any of the candidates, even Buttigieg and Sanders, who seem certain to finish one-two.
I still believe the odds are that Hillary will run again. That the fix is in to make sure no one else can unify the party before the convention is how Hillary plans to get the nomination again.
Now the DNC establishment wants to bring back super delegates voting on the first ballot. Which is certainly meant to stop Bernie or Buttgieg from getting the nomination.
To unpack that a bit, the two leading candidates now come from two of the most historically disadvantaged groups in America, neither of those groups has more than a single digit percentage of the population, yet the intinerant difficulties in garnering the amount of support they now have are unmentioned in the article. Nor does the article celebrate this diversity. If the Democrats are who they say they are this should be a triumph yet nothing is said.
I think getting this much support in a caucus situation means they would get far more, perhaps double digit percentages more, in an election. Whether I am right or not it's perfectly plausible but not for consideration in this article, instead it's all about how there's nothing to see here, move along!
And since when is losing by over 40%, and coming in fourth, "relatively close"?
