At least he is running in the primary and not doing a third party run. That would just hand it to Trump. Ultimately, he is just another crappy candidate in what has now been two election cycles of horrible candidates. The Democrats are doing their best to match the shit show the Republicans put on during the last election cycle.

Ha. The founder of every town for gun confiscation...Bloomberg is the anti-NRA. The more Dems declare for the nomination, the more we're reminded why Trump is easily the lesser of two evils.

On this day in 2015, there were 15 Republican candidates still in the race. No new candidates emerged. Two (Walker and Perry) had dropped out.

At this point, there are 17 candidates still left in the Democrat primary:
Bennet
Biden
Booker
Bullock
Buttigieg
Castro
Dulaney
Gabbard
Harris
Klobuchar
Messam
Sanders
Sestak
Steyer
Warren
Williamson
Yang

Ten candidates have already dropped out. As of today, Bloomberg, Hillary and Eric Holder are potentially getting in. I wouldn't rule out less than half a dozen other names.


If this is a weak field, then the Democrats' ideas are weak.

Question: Are any of the Dem candidates non-politicians? Honestly don't know. I remember at least 3 actual real honest to God private citizens in the Republican primary, and I thought that was a good sign if it can continue. I would hope to see a similar trend on the left.

A few of the third tier: Yang, Steyer and Williamson

One of the hard core republican supporters should jump in on the democratic ticket for potus like a certain hardcore democrat supporter did to the republicans.
I’m afraid it won’t work in reverse. Too many progressives now, not enough moderates.
