Strong numbers in a small region of small states dont negate delegates won in Milwaulkee, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, St Louis, and Kansas City who vote far more like the Southeast and Northeast than they do like the Pacific West.

    Here is the reason progressives and Bernites should just toss the MW strategy. In an one on one primary like 2016, with two political polar opposites (in terms of party), you should run away with the regions you are said to be strong in.





    While 7 to 5 looks great, you have to look at two things.

    1) this isn't the EC, this is the primary voting process in which winning is based on delegates, and delegates won is determined by population and percentage of the votes. Point is Sanders won 38 delegates in Nebraska and Kansas combined for taking nearly 65% of the vote, but Clinton taking just Alabama gave her 53. If you really want to see how worthless this strategy is, Bernie took 415 delegates from the Midwest (22% of his entire delegate count) while Hillary took 141 delegates from Florida (5% of her entire delegate count) for taking 64% of the vote. Basically Hillary was losing by 1-2 percent in most of MW losses in highly populated areas and just trouncing him in the SE, MATL, Texas, and much of the NE.


    2) any advantage the progressives seem to have in the MW is going to be split between Sanders and Warren, while establishment candidates are probably going to get the numbers they expect.


    More or less to win, Sanders is going to have to stop acting like the MW is this valuable item just because Nebraska and Kansas people believe he is the smartest guy on the planet.

    Bernie did well in IA and NE because those were caucus states.

    The caucuses are the most undemocratic process I can think of....save for the Electoral College.

    I participated in the NE caucuses and my impression was that it's organized chaos. Far from being anything close to a democratic process. Just a bunch of yelling and rabble-rousing. Most people in NE didn't understand the process, and stayed home. Which left room for the Free Stuffers to drown out any semblance of a free and fair assembly.

    NE dropped the caucuses for 2020. Thank Allah.

    Booker appears ready to pull the plug if he doesn’t get a bunch of money soon.

    At this point the race is Biden v. Sanders v. Warren with Biden really only persisting because the money wants him around. He's been dropping like a rock since debates started.

    I think we are closing in on five viable candidates based on the new criteria for November's debate. 3% in 4 polls or 5% in 2 of those 4 polls, plus 165,000 donors. Currently Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg and Harris qualify. I cannot see any other candidate reaching this threshold before the November debate. It is time to get this pared down and hopefully see some substantive discussions.
