Presidential Election :11/3/2020- Putin's Impeachable Puppet vs The Rise of BootyWalker & some other Dems

Recommended Posts

Wonder where the 2020 Conventions will be?

 

For the Dems, seeing that they need to win some of those Rust Belt states back; my bet their convention will be in either PA,OH,MI or WI.

 

I think Trump will have his convention in New York of course.

I think the GOP 2020 convention is between Charlotte and Vegas and is supposed to be decided soon.

 

Location of the Dem convention more wide open as of now.

Good.

 

Thank goodness.

 

Caucuses are le dumb.

 

Fun?  Sure.  But as with women in lakes handing out swords, it's not a great basis for a system of government.

Let me know when they get rid of super delegates 

 

I would expect moving to a pure primary system would help to alleviate some of the issues.  Less messy and requiring less normalization across all states.  Should help to limit '68esque outcomes, which was/is the whole point of Superdelegates.

 

What they could do is bind superdelegates to whoever gets the plurality of votes in a state for the first ballot.  Easy and effective solution.

Well then why not just eliminate them?   What purpose would they serve in that scenario?

Not good news for Sanders.

It maybe be too early for me but I thought Sanders didn't do well in caucuses (I could have that backwards).

You do have it backwards, it's why Clinton won the primary season without the superdelegates because she won actual votes. The superdelegates are a red herring promulgated by Sanders after he entered the Democrat Party and signed on to the rules of the primary season, then whined when he didn't win the nomination. Then he went right back to being a registered Independent.

Sanders doesn't have to win anything.  The Dems are moving to his position on the issues. 

 

Gonna be interesting how that works out.

Between that and Trump maybe a 3rd party might take off, but probably just more realignment.

What states that Trump lost will he lose to a Warren/Harris ticket?   Or Warren/other woman

Warren or Mark Warner?  I think Ladyskinsfan was talking about a Mark Warner candidacy a few days back. 

 

Man, what I wouldn't give for a Warner run.  The country should be so lucky.
