Well when November comes you basically have to chose, 4 years of Trump (assuming he doesn't die of natural causes) or someone in the other party that isn't Trump.    There will be many who don't have their favourite get their name on it.  Hopefully you write in the good box.

There is a phrase in politics here about "eating dead rats"  Something you'd been against in the past, hurts and is uncomfortable to change your position, but sometimes you have to do it as its the lesser evil.

I don't think we need to be reminded what's on the line. And don't take my dislike of any of the democrats (even if DINO) as "I'd rather have the orange shitgibbon."

I mean, VBNMW is a thing, yknow? I hope it holds true for everyone who is sick of Trump's shit.

Biden is looking shaky.  Buttigieg is doing better than expected.  I am hoping for Warren, but she is also looking shaky.  At the end of the day I would take any of them over Trump.

Trump might cancel the election at the rate he's going, what with all the dictator shit he's doing now.  Republicans would let him too.

Biden is banking on SC carrying him. May or may not pan out, depends if his black support holds up.

Buttigieg only did well in the most whitebread states. He should fall apart in short order and probably be done by Super Tuesday. At least, I hope so. Only Bloomberg is more detestable (but still better than Trump). Well, no. Tulsi is worse. But she's done.

Warren is okay, as long as her supporters don't give in to the "oops, IA and NH were bad, better switch teams!" hysteria (which is largely being fueled by Bernie Bros trying to undermine her support). Her strategy is pretty hyper-focused like she is on everything, and she's not sweating. I won't start worrying unless after Super Tuesday.

The Bernie bros are pretty off-putting. Bunch of stories about dirty tricks in Nevada right now. Hard to tell if it’s from the campaign or elsewhere, but it doesn’t make me happy about sanders. Also seeing lots of chatter about Bloomberg. People are desperate to beat trump... was bemused yesterday when I was talking to my 9 yr old about all the candidates and when I mentioned bloomberg, she volunteered “Mike can get it done!”  She said she’s seen his ads on YouTube. Clearly money well spent.

On board with VBNMW.

lol...Warren was pretty savage.  Bloomberg did not come off well.  Not sure how he was not better prepared for the debate.
