    Is anybody saying he will be the nominee? The argument is whether he would make a competitive one. I think he would. I think all the top five (Biden, Warren, Sanders, Buttigieg, Harris) would.

    It looks like Klobuchar will beat Harris out for fifth in both IA and NH. That kills Harris unless she wins in SC (she is currently polling 5% there) and gives us the top four. And then those four run for a while. Biden never gets out no matter what, it's his last dance. The loser of the Sanders/Warren h2h eventually drops out and endorses the other. Let's say that's Warren for the sake of argument.

    The question is, what shape is the Democratic electorate in the primaries? If it's anything north of 60/40 Centrist then Biden probably wins the nomination unless he completely collapses. With say a Biden/Pete 70/30 split and a Center/Left split of 60/40, Biden comes into the convention with 42% of the electorate which translates to over 50% of the delegates.

    Likewise, a Center/Left split of 50/50 means the combined delegates for Warren and Sanders are going to be around 50% and the leader between them will also lead the field. Since delegates remain committed on the first ballot that means Warren (remember, we're assuming she's the Left survivor, but it could as easily be the other way) is in the low 40s on the first ballot. The second ballot happens and the superdelegates are released. If Biden is trailing Warren significantly (>5%) then, with the Sanders delegates moving to Warren, the superdelegates will make it a love in and indeed at that point I would expect a nomination for Warren by acclamation to start the hugs and kisses.

    If Biden completely disintegrates, as in the final Center split is like 70/30 Buttigieg, then the Biden delegates and supers push him through on the second ballot regardless of the Center/Left party balance, because the supers have an excuse to hose the Left (again).

    So, there are ways for each of four to win. At this point the odds I'd lay are:

    .4 Biden
    .3 Warren
    .1 Sanders
    .1 Buttigieg
    .1 a convention white knight. Let's say Sherrod Brown to swing OH and the election.

    I 100% do NOT think Mayor Pete will be the candidate. I think he has the power to crown them though.

    Try reading it again...see if you can come up with a reason why calling a candidate a sociopath without proof vs calling how supporters may view their chosen candidate as a God...not only is different but why the former is likely a bad idea.
    Can you figure that one out?

    He's had multiple good polls in Iowa and is clearly rising in New Hampshire. Whether he can start attracting African American support is your one correct offering.

    Interesting theory. I could probably buy that second sentence.

    This might be an interesting question: Are there more viable candidates or people who could lock it down for the candidate? Are these people universal or for specific candidates?

    I'm leaning towards there being fewer crowners than viable canddiates. There are probably four still viable candidates. Biden, Warren, Sanders, and at the fringe, Pete. Who are the people that could lock them in? Kepler mentioned Abrams would lock it down for Pete. Anyone else want to weigh in on the him or any of the other pairings?

    Edit: Are you talking about the October 3rd poll from Gravis Marketing that had Steyer at 7%? Or the one in February? Otherwise they've all had him at least register.

    It was the Gravis poll but correct, this is more right as that was one out of 5 polls.

    I meant that Abrams would be a great Veep pick to beat Dump. I didn't mean to suggests that Abrams would help him win the nom if he chose her before the convention was locked.

    As a rule I hate it when candidates chose their Veeps early. The convention is the appropriate place for that because it should be in consultation with the party. It's the nominee's final choice, but beforehand everybody should have their say so there are no nasty surprises afterwards.

    My Veep picks for beating Dump:

    Biden. Best: Castro. Worst: a white guy
    Warren. Best: Buttigieg. Worst: Sanders
    Sanders. Best: Harris. Worst: Warren
    Buttigieg. Best: Abrams. Worst: a white guy

    Quite a contrast. Most Ds would like to see a woman on the ticket or at least someone who is not white and male. The Rs, meanwhile, have an old white male in the Oval who boasts that he grabs women by the puzzy and an old white male VP who refuses to be alone in a room with a woman.

    Itís only one poll but Mayor Pete seems to be slowly gaining traction...

    Up by 10 points over Biden and Warren in New Hampshire:

    Sanders and Warren won't run together. They are both Democratic senators in states that have GOP governors (although VT is up for election) with a senate that might be 50-50 after November. If both were on a winning ticket any chance of a Democratic majority in the senate is gone. That also means neither can take a cabinet position if the other wins the White House.

    I still think Andrew Gillum would be the perfect VP candidate for any of them.

    Your conclusion you repeatedly cite as fact.
