So 75% of those voters voted for him instead of simply voting against Hillary. Explains why his base in the state polls is consistently around 15-20% and he's the second choice among the bulk of Biden supporters.

the fact that she is already going negatives doesn't bode well for how her campaign is going. Going negative this early reeks of desperation. 

I'd be panicking if I was her as well after watching Sanders' rollout. They're both trying to shore up the same base of voters and it's clear she won't be able to compete.

There's always Native American casinos ripe with cash. Oh right, she better forget that idea.

I completely forgot about the 15% rule.

:rolleyes: Talk about terrible analysis. 15% rule helps with winnowing the field around a consensus candidate. Also, the fact that it is proportional above 15% means a candidate with a small vocal base doesn't have a chance. You need to build a coalition that can reach 51%.

Harris is probably in a bit of trouble, yes.

Keep up the hope brother's. It is nice that you believe in 2020, but we all know better.

When Cohen testifies next week your 2020 hopes are slim to none. If Mueller has him in trouble regardless of what is released on Ivanka and Jared (if it's not hidden by Barr) there will be no Trump in 2020.

Nah. Harris can build a winning coalition as long as her record doesn't get exposed or people overlook it. Beto, Brown, Klobuchar, etc are the ones that will have trouble given the map.  I predict we will not have more than 5-6 candidates coming out of IA. NH will decide Warren or Bernie and SC decides Biden, Booker, or Harris. 

The last 2 or 3 candidates will battle it out the rest of March.

As crazy/foolish as you are at least you have blind stupid faith in loonacy.

Looks like more people are noticing as well. Not a smart strategy for a marathon primary. Sooner or later people are going to notice you are not saying what you believe in.
