Thanks to the electoral college, my vote in the presidential election is irrelevant


It's actually not this time around.

There are several states (mine-CT- included) who will be giving their electoral votes to the popular vote leader.


Not true yet. That only happens once states representing a majority of electoral votes pass laws to distribute their votes that way.

Which Democratic Presidential Candidates Have Qualified for the First Debates?


Marianne Williamson reaches donor threshold for Dem debates

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/05/09/marianne-williamson-2020-election-1315133

Quote:
Author and lecturer Marianne Williamson has hit the 65,000-donor threshold set by the Democratic National Committee for the upcoming 2020 debates, her campaign announced Thursday.

Her announcement boasted that her campaign contributions came from more than 200 people in each of 43 states, which she said “far outpaces the DNC requirement of 200 people in 20 states,” referring to the Democratic National Committee.



I got $1 that says the DNC changes the rules between now and the first debate

Elizabeth Warren: We Need To Invest In HBCUs — The Way We Should Have Been for Generations
Quote:
That’s why I have a plan to invest a minimum of $50 billion in HBCUs and Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs). The Department of Education would have the power to automatically increase that funding as needed to make sure HBCUs can spend the same amount per student as other colleges. Colleges can choose what they want to do with that money -- provide free tuition for students, invest in new facilities, hire new faculty, or serve more students.

We’re going to pay for this historical investment with my ultra-millionaire tax, which is a small 2% tax on fortunes over $50 million -- affecting just about the 75,000 wealthiest families in America. The ultra-millionaire tax also covers the cost of the rest of my higher education plan, which includes student debt cancellation of up to $50,000 for 42 million Americans, free two-year and four-year public college, and a $100 billion investment in Pell Grants to cover non-tuition costs like room and board. Experts found my debt cancellation plan would help close the racial wealth gap by substantially increasing Black and Latinx wealth.

Ami Horowitz

Quote:
I have decided to run for the Democratic nomination because of the ideological radicalization of the party that has occurred in recent years. These extreme views are marginalizing the party from the majority of the country’s population and many of the current nominees hold views that are in direct conflict with the perspective of the vast majority of the country.

Morning Consult poll shows Fox viewers are more likely to vote for Bernie Sanders than CNN and MSNBC viewers, or NY Times, WaPo and WSJ readers.

Democrats who watch Fox News as their primary news source...

ALIENS EXIST

Seriously though, in 2016 that demographic made up 1% of Bernie's primary vote and 4% of Hillary's.

Appealing to Fox News Democrats is not super high on the priority list, which is why Warren smartly turned down the Fox News Town Hall (she is appealing to partisanship in the crowded field to distinguish herself, which with the presence of Biden as an early front runner and Bernie's bipartisan focus is a good lane for her in the primary that could get her some solid traction).

Biden shows early strength, but pitfalls loom in 2020 U.S. presidential race

Quote:
They cited two main factors: The massive Democratic field makes it difficult for any one candidate to stand out, and voters tend to be risk-averse when seeking a candidate to topple a sitting president.


Why Black Voters Are Gravitating to Biden

Quote:
Yes, his civil-rights record is spotty. But Joe Biden had Barack Obama’s back for eight years, and people will remember that.


Democrats were said to be furious and hungry for change. Then Biden jumped in.

Quote:
In his opening weeks as a presidential candidate, Biden has rejected much of the conventional wisdom that drove the first stretch of the Democratic nomination fight, refusing to play to the party’s liberal wing, focus on the wrongs of the past or call for revolutionary transformation.
