Democrats Worry That Super Tuesday Won't Leave Them With A Candidate

American Thinker
By Andrea Widburg
January 6, 2020

Excerpt:

Historically, after Super Tuesday in early March, a leader emerges from the primaries, allowing party money and machinery to consolidate around one person. This year, Democrat party insiders worry that Super Tuesday will end without any candidate holding a clear lead, leaving room for Mike Bloomberg to buy his way into the election:

Democrats are now beginning to confront a very real scenario where the nomination and the winnowing will not be decided in states where campaigns have been plowing ground for more than a year, but in places and calendar dates so deep into primary season that until recently they've received almost no attention at all.

The Iowa field is bunched together with little daylight between a handful of well-funded candidates. Each of the four early voting states continues to present the prospect of a different winner. And, at the end of that gauntlet on Super Tuesday, a free-spending billionaire Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor is waiting to challenge whichever candidate or candidates emerge.

[snip]

Looking at the possibility of a still-contested nomination even after Super Tuesday's massive delegate allocation on March 3, Washington state Democratic Party chair Tina Podlodowski said mid-March will "probably matter more than ever before."

One strategist working with a presidential candidate said, "We've never had a situation where we get past Super Tuesday and there's still five people in the field," predicting that possibility this year.

"We're in bizarro world here," the strategist said.

Currently, each of the remaining candidates who has a chance appeals to and offends different core Democrat demographics:

The elderly, white Bernie Sanders, an open socialist, has the greatest appeal to young voters marinated in leftism throughout their school years. To them, Bernie's authentic. The vestiges of centrist Democrat voters remaining in the party find his socialism unappealing.

The elderly, white Elizabeth Warren, an anti-capitalist populist who is socialist but won't admit it, appeals to feminists and wonks. Her endless self-serving lies; scolding tone; and complicated, unworkable policies offend a lot of the base.

The elderly, white Joe Biden, who's desperately trying to hang onto Obama's coattails, even as Obama keeps tugging them out of his gasp, holds a nostalgic Obama-era appeal to black voters. Nevertheless, he's showing his flop sweat when he tries to get to the left of Bernie, his corruption is catching up with him, and he's getting (there are no other words for it) weird and confused.

The young white Pete Buttigieg is appealing because... Well, we don't know why. Aside from positioning himself as the gay Obama, he's inexperienced and has a mediocre track record as mayor. He's the equivalent of a class valedictorian announcing he's running for president. While his military service may appeal to the Heartland, most party faithful, especially the young, are not impressed.

The middle-aged white Amy Klobuchar has tried to position herself as a sensible mother figure, which mostly means she tries to broker other people's opinions at debates, which looks weak. It doesn't help that behind that motherly persona, she has a reputation for being an unpleasant diva.

And finally, the young, Asian Andrew Yang hangs in there by virtue of looking sane and cracking sometimes amusing race-based jokes about Asians. His sudden fundraising surge in December took him from has-been back to maybe. Like Buttigieg, he's another high school valedictorian aiming high.

What a clown show. There's not one decent human being among them, let alone a leader.

One could argue this has nothing to do with the quantity of candidates available...

For the first time in my life I'm actually enjoying watching a political party's desperate attempts to herd cats.

Heeheeheeheeheeheeheeheeheehee!!!

Ultimately, Super Tuesday doesn't matter if you're a Democrat. Superdelegates not primary voters select the nominee. Whom will be Biden. Which means the Democrats already lost Pennsylvania. Possibly, Biden's home state of Vermont as Democrats will write in any of the other 218 clowns in protest.

Just wait...

hilda-beast or mooch-elle, maybe both, will step up (without having had to debate or spend on a campaign up to now) and claim it's their 'duty' to be the nominee so they can oppose the best leader we've had in decades. (I.O.W. - feel it is their duty to drag the U.S. away from MAGA, and back down in the murky cesspool of bobo's legacy, and future clinton corruption and immorality)

I've said several times here that I think Moochele will step in. She is actually the only one, in my opinion, that could give Trump a run for his money. The left voters are truly that stupid to consider her as president.

In a surprise showing, Admiral General President Prime Minister Qasem Salami places fourth place in the latest democrat primary poll.
