    Not so good in Florida, where Bloomberg is doing well.

    There is a possibility that after the march 17 primaries, Sanders may have the nomination all but sealed up. If so, the big question will be, who is Sander's VP pick?

    According to the FiveThirtyEight primary forecast, the single most likely outcome of the Democratic presidential primary is that no one wins a majority of pledged delegates (there is a 2 in 5, or 41 percent, chance of this). However, it is almost equally likely that Sen. Bernie Sanders will bag a majority (a 2 in 5 chance, or 37 percent). And a recent avalanche of national polls has been particularly good for Sanders.1

    Yep. Great for Sanders. Great for Trump. Very bad for the world. Very bad for the environment.

    "Very bad for the environment"? Trump's budget slashes EPA's budget by 27%. Finally, America's nightmare of clean water and air is over! Trump's budget slashes federal support for alternative energy projects. Trump has been slashing regulations that prevented corporate polluters from flooding us with toxic substances, pesticides and inspection of food stuffs and medicines.

    No president has ever been so bad for the environment than Trump.

    I think Harry is convinced that Sanders can't win (correct me if I'm wrong, Harry).
    I am not convinced that a very nice looking turnip wouldn't beat Trump.

    Head to head Trumpo the clown vs Sanders will not be easy. We will hear a lot of squealing about socialism and communism if Bernie wins. And rabble rousing about Christianity and abortion, playing to the toxic Christian base. But then Sanders will attack on Trump's efforts to gut the safety net. And Trump's insane climate denial policies. And his lack of effort to protect America's voters from Putin's antics, voter suppression, caging and discouragement. Attacks on Womens' health issue. Massive deficits. And lastly, who will be appointing judges for life, including the next few Supreme court justices.

    Trumpo and Faux and the GOP will be loud and obnoxious with their wedge issues. But in the end, I think Bernie can win. What will count is turn out and the Independent voters. I suspect Trump fatigue will be a big issue come voting day.

    So with 60% reporting, Bernie is leading with almost half of CDEs, Biden is 2nd and Buttigieg a strong 3rd. Unlike Biden, Buttigieg is actually leading in some counties like Nye and Douglas, so he will get good delegates, and may even tie on delegates with Biden.

    Warren is far back in 4th with only ~10% of CDEs and probably no national delegates. I am so glad her strategy to go "scorched Earth" negative did not bear fruit. Of course, she is a bully and has doubled down, and has even resorted to height-shaming Bloomberg. Bitch, aren't you like 5'8" yourself?

    I'd like to build a comparison of who would be hurt by each of those policies - to use as a campaigning tool. To anyone who says, "they are just as bad," I'd like to be able to say - maybe to you, but to THESE people (poor, minorities, women, children, etc) they are not equal. If it's all the same to you, then would you please lend your voice to help them?

    As are many others, including James "Ragin' Cajun" Carville and Barack Obama.

    It's funny. Before the Super Tuesday, it's all "Mike Bloomberg is a sexist, he's a racist, and moreover he is short".
    After Super Tuesday it's most likely going to be ...

    ... "Help us Mike Bloomberg! You're our only hope!"

    I am not convinced that a very nice looking turnip wouldn't beat Trump.
    That kind of hubris lost Hillary the 2016 election.

    That's how we end up with many more years of His Flatulence.

    How is how we end up with trump? Overestimating the number of people who know and care what a scumbag he is?
    I'm not so sure that's a moveable number. The key is getting them to vote, that's all. Even if it's for a very nice looking turnip.
