Maybe I spoke too soon regarding Bernie not being able to win the nomination. This is so difficult to read. Biden is very weak right now, but his non-Bernie competition is either really flawed, has no significant organization in upcoming states, or both! 

By the way, this is pretty interesting. What’s up with this? Bernie did better with non-white voters, that he did with whites....

Arrogant Joe Biden told people to vote for someone else.

 

Guess he got his wish

 

 


Before watching that, I was expecting that there was more to the story...that the voter was out of line in some way....nope! Biden was out of line there, especially putting his hand on the guy’s chest, and poking him with his finger. Joe still hasn’t learned to keep his hands to himself.

Biden's whole campaign has come off as a "It's my turn to be President" and not much else. Sure, he mentions Obama here and there, but outside of a few hints that he worked with Obama on this or that, he had an attitude where he felt like it was his time and no one should stand in the way. I mean, he absolutely bombed in Iowa and New Hampshire which is not a good look for the "front runner".

 

In regards to last night's primary, that was way too close for comfort (for me anyway) being a Bernie supporter. I was a little bit disappointed in his win last night. I'll gladly take the win, but lets be honest, no one (who likes/supports Bernie) can be 100% happy with the fact that he only won by around 2% against a former mayor. Yes, the field is much more populated than it was in 2016 so to expect him to beat 8 other candidates in a landslide isn't realistic, but I expected him to win by, at least, 5 points. 2 is way too close.

 

Granted, New Hampshire and Iowa are both very white states and, despite the media narrative, it seems like Bernie is doing better among minorities than he is among white voters this go around where I believe in 2016 he struggled with everyone outside of the white voters. On the flip side, Pete appears to be the guy getting all the white support but has very little support from minorities.

 

We'll see if the polls are reliable or if Bernie gets crushed in the south where Biden is expected to perform well, but this whole thing is just weird.

Documents Reveal DNC was "Intimately Involved" In Development Of Troubled Iowa Caucus App

There are all kinds of things to complain about the DNC over, but this is silly. Every client who hires a company to build them an app is intimately involved with its development. That has nothing to do with the app having bugs.

Yeah but the one candidate who the fiasco benefited the most paid them. Warren, Klobuchar and Biden weren't involved.

 

Not to mention Clinton and Obama admins are involved with the app. Way too much conflict of interest.

As a gay guy it upsets me to see a mainstream gay figure have so many dark ties. Its likely to increase discrimintation

 

On another note I love Klobuchar, Buttigieg, and Bloomberg splitting votes. Makes it more likely Bernie wins and they all s---their beds. Its funny how these oligarch figures think they are beloved as well

Pete's campaign, giving $$ toward this app, seems more than fishy. It needs to be investigated.

I'm not an app truther--I think it's more just Democrats being incompetent and terrible at optics--but I certainly understand why some are for the reasons above.

 

I'm kind of sad Andrew Yang dropped out. Imo he'd make a good mayor of like a B- or C-tier city.

Yeah …There's a lot of info coming out,  regarding this App.  No wonder everyone was pretty surprised, that Pete came in that high in Iowa. It didn't make sense, and now … we are finding out, why

And then, there's still that ridiculous coin toss. Like … SERIOUSLY???

App truth is just Pizzagate for the left. 

 

Except for … Pizzagate is utter nonsense, and

 

Shadow App isn't. Pete is the ONLY one (of the candidates), from everything I've come across, whose campaign, actually donated to this App.

Being involved in politics, you'd be surprised how some candidates are good at hiding stuff like that - wouldn't be surprise if other candidates did funding via another way. 

 

At least Pete's campaign is transparent about it.
