    But according to the polls Bernie could beat Trump with both hands tied behind his back.

    So I guess the Bornsteins had the opportunity to examine each and every single president ever. If not, the claim that "I can state uneqivocally" is a baseless claim. Or a lie. I'm guessing B not A. At least all his best people are consistent in being arrogant and intentionally misleading (lying, that is).

    Bernie actually is ahead of Trump in almost every national poll. On the other hand, Bernie hasn't yet been hit by the inevitable barrage of negative ads from Trump and his super pacs. In 1988, Mike Dikakus had a double-digit lead over George HW Bush until the barrage of Willie Horton ads hit.

    I would be ecstatic if he did! I philosophically agree with him for the most part. Do you see the dems keeping the House and flipping the Senate with him heading the ticket, because that's the only way anything gets done?

    Interesting the two most likely Dem nominees are 78 year old ultra rich white guys.

    Plus that video of Dukakis riding around in a tank with a stupid smile on his face.

    I'm not very confident in the field right now. Pete did the best and there will be a large group of people who wont vote for a gay man. Biden doesnt seem like he has the energy nor wits anymore. Bernie is too polarizing even among Democrats. Amy and Liz have both been up and down but both are certainly viable so I'd say after Pete it's them. Bloomberg had a very poor showing with an enormous build up. Not sure he is dead but he'll need to kill it next time.

    The thing about Bloomberg is, a man who starts a business and makes 60 billion dollars with it has to be doing something right. Even if he's one of the biggest crooks in history, he's doing it right. I'm not aware of any investigations, all those lawsuits aside.

    It wasn't always like this, but I think Biden is done... I think Warren is done... I think Steyer was never really a contender... and I think Klobuchar and Mayor Pete are going to destroy each other's campaign, and even if they don't they're clearly second tier to Sanders and Bloomberg...

    So that leaves Bloomberg and Sanders... unless I'm missing somebody...

    The problem with Bloomberg is he's everything the Democrats hate...

    An anti-SJW old straight white male billionaire job creator... :D

    Where have we seen this before? :ninja2:

    Sorry, but I think she's done...

    She came off as desperate last night going "guns-blazing" like that... It wouldn't look that way if it weren't such a dramatic change from what we've seen from her thus far...

    Clearly Bloomberg is the candidate most feared by the Trump campaign and supporters.

    I have to agree with James Woods - last night was a clown show. I desperately want one, any of these candidates to defeat Trump, but am not optimistic at this point.
    • Bernie has been tagged a socialist, is old, and had a recent health problem.
    • Biden can barely remember his own name. Can't put two sentences together.
    • Warren is brilliant, but too progressive to win over rural America.
    • Klobuchar flat lost her cool last night. She's moderate, but lacks attractiveness and charisma.
    • Bloomberg was flatlined last night. He appears to be no saving grace in this primary.
    • That leaves Buttigieg. I like him best, but have little faith that America will elect him. He might have the best charisma since JFK, but there are factors that would prevent dumb people from voting for him.
    I sure hope I'm wrong, but this seems like a bunch of John-Kerry types, in terms of surface appeal. There's plenty of experience and intelligence, but no surface-level hipness that could carry America.

    He is the only one even though he performed poorly. Voters have a short memory and the media will be back propping him up in a few days and taking aim at Bernie. When they decide to go hard after Bernie will be interesting to watch. I have no doubt Bloomberg will be smart enough to talk about how he got rich building a company and Bernie attained his riches while in office.
