    Warren was speaking and the news networks cut halfway to show Sanders.

    Warren has not been erased in this primary. She has simply performed poorly.

    If they are like me, there is only a limited amount of time that I can listen to Warren's condescension before the urge to get up and hurl overwhelms me.

    Warren with less than 7%, Sanders had !9% they should show Sanders over Warren

    And they know when each candidate is poised to speak. They communicate. Bernie's team decided to cut in about a minute and a half in to limit Warren's exposure and keep her less viable for ST. Understand the move, but it's a dick move.

    Both erasure and poor performance are valid.

    Okay, I see the issue, I thought you were complaining about the tv network. Agree, cheap move by Sanders then.

    Frankly, Klobuchar has more total votes than Warren does thus far. Warren just hasn't performed. There's no reason to treat her like a front runner when she isn't performing like one.

    Biden kind of did the same to Sanders, but only after about (I'm guessing here) seven minutes of Bernie talking. Then the networks interrupted with the leader of the SC Black Caucus introducing Biden. It was a night of interruptions, but some were more costly to candidates than others. Buttigieg did the smart thing and gave the concession almost immediately after the first results came out.

    Not true at all. Amy had the highest performance in the state with the lowest population. Warren has been above her in every other state.

    Based on tonight's results, Warren is well over 10,000 total votes more than Amy. (Based on the four states that have gone so far.)

    I'm deleting my post that was previously post #6. It is more inflammatory than a previous post that had been deleted. I cast no aspersions on the moderators here, they do an excellent job ... but I think in the spirit of fairness I should delete my own jab.

    That's likely true now. It wasn't true earlier in the night.

    Yeah, probably not earlier. Iowa was surprisingly low and the others have broken records.

    Bernie Bros are all over Warren's people wanting her to drop out.

    If they only cut out half of what she said she still got a few lies in because 75% of what she says is fabricated.

    Nah, all she had time to do was congratulate others and say she'll be active in the next states. She didn't even have time for a Howard Dean yaaa moment.
