I haven't gotten sample ballot or voter info for the last couple elections not sure if they are going with everything electronic which I'm all for but I think it's strange I have to look this stuff up online now since they got rid of traditional polling places and set reminders in my calendar. I wonder if this is going to reduce voter turnout because people aren't even aware when the general election and primaries are.

here's a solution to this student loan "problem": make it a requirement that for every student loan-dependent undergraduate an institution accepts, that institution must co-sign their student loans. colleges and universities have billions and billions socked away in endowments that could cover any defaults with ease, especially as universities suddenly discover a new found interest in the post-graduate financial success of the freshman they accept. sadly, this will be hard on, for example, the sociology, women's studies and fine arts departments but it would be 'for the greater good'.....dare I say it? '..for the collective'.
I'm sure Cornel West as just one example would agree instantly with the brilliance of this solution....although it wouldn't I suppose be unreasonable for Dr West to question, as he falls on his sword, wtf Harvard paid Elizabeth Warren $352,000 a year.

I lean Republican living in California.Tough world because I think the Democrats are destroying this state. I hope Trump wins again because, Warren lies more than Hilary Clinton. Bernie is a god damn communist. If I wanted to live in a communist state, I'd move to China. Joe Biden can't even form a cohesive sentence. Loves being creepy as hell with children and flat out admitted to corruption. Plus the Democrats have done nothing this whole year except try to go against everything the elected president as done.

Weather you like or dislike Trump, I think we can all agree that the news media is a huge problem. the news media on both sides need to differentiate when they're saying an opinion piece or an objective piece because the average person doesn't pay attention enough to figure it out for themselves...

This isn't accidental...it's by design.

Bad move by Liz, no matter the situation she was ticked off about.
Looks like it helped him and hurt her.

Yep, thanks for the chart. The free college video debacle has not helped her, either. Bye Lizzy.

It will be really interesting to see if Bernie can keep this lead through Iowa, and if so what the DNC does to curtail his edge. You know they have got to be fuming.

i never understood her appeal to begin with... secondly i believe if the dnc didnt rail road bernie the last time around we may have had a different outcome. he had far more support and passionate voters than hrc and i felt people were settling with her because she was the only option after being told this is who we want and need. that being said i also felt that kamala and booker would have had more of a following. booker more so than kamala because of how vigilant she was in her prosecution but those two surprised me. if bloomberg can't buy the ballot i think it may come down to buttigieg vs. warren to knock either out to verse biden or bernie. lastly, i truly thought gabbard would have been much higher up by now. she is similar to warren but not as crazy, military experience, more poised and doesnt come off as a far left but more moderate despite some of her beliefs and stance. still early to call but next few months are going to be interesting and i cant wait for the running mate picks. if it's old white man vs. old white man then running mate is going to have a woman, a person of color, a member or lgbtq or go for the trifecta with all of the above to have a chance. this is my barstool political analysis in one paragraph.

Is the stool next to you taken? Mind if I have a seat? Re Warren's appeal, I never saw it either. I truly believe that if the DNC did not coronate Hillary, Bernie would have won the general. He had huge support that was going to be hard for anybody to stop. With his recent health scare, and also the "evil" capitalist economy booming as it is, not sure he can pull it off this time. Unless, as you say, he chooses wisely with a diverse running mate. Joe does not stand a chance in the general no matter who he picks, I think that enough D's would stay home because he is too tied up in what Hunter has done and just plain old and boring. Yep, I am looking forward to seeing how this all unfolds also. Popcorn is ready.

Talk about handing Trump the win. That would be a stupid move.

I wouldn't pick her as VP due to fear that I would suicide myself the day after I'm sworn in as president : )
