I’ve been watching the Democratic nomination “progress” with some degree of interest, since whoever is left at the end will face Trump in November. And since no Democrat currently (or previously) running is “safe” for the country, I must regard Trump as the safest choice for 2020.
And now Andrew Yang has bowed out, after his disappointing performance in New Hampshire today. It was inevitable in any case, since his so-called “Freedom Dividend” program is a completely air-headed idea. Who could possibly think anyone would go for it?
So, who’s going to come out on top in the New Hampshire primary? It looks like Bernie Sanders so far. I’m writing this while the results are rolling in (watching the “Don’t Walk, Run! Productions” livestream, and Twitter. I need to go to bed, but this is keeping me up. Why? It won’t matter, but I’m terribly curious.
The former front-runner, Joe Biden, is coming in rather low, with 8.3% of the vote. If you’ve been listening to him lately, he actually sounds like he’s slipped into some kind of dementia. Pretty sure he won’t be able to recover, from an election point of view. If true, it’s probably for the best, for him at least, since there seems to be some evidence that he’s corrupt and could face justice. Nobody would pursue a mentally-deficit Biden.
I have a feeling that despite the fact that Bernie, Buttigieg, and Klobuchar are rocking New Hampshire at the moment, the eventual nominee will be Bloomberg, who isn’t even participating in New Hampshire. The Democratic National Committee is completely opposed to Sanders being the nominee, and I am sure that they will bend all their efforts to keep him from winning the nomination.
So, who’s going to be the next dropout out the 8 running in NH? My guess is that will be Tulsi Gabbard.
I’m going to bed now.
