@Thunderbirds511 Saw that this morning but I’m suspicious because I had also read (though I can’t remember where) that national polls were being inundated with bot votes

I will vote for him if he is the nominee. Not only is he still better than T-rump but he has performed as if there is reasoning possible, there could be push back but some degree of reasoning is a better option than outrigh autocratic narcissim.

As I'm reviewing Congressional districts for seats in flux, I'm struck by the oddity that is Lee Zeldin in NY-01. A fairly moderate district, he only barely won in the midterms, yet Lee is out blazing MAGA...almost like he isn't invested in his own district or re-election. It's as if he's angling for something else, some...quid promise quo.
So I'm looking at the other House & Senate suckups today, too. I've got a list. Who should be on it?

I have not heard a single Democrat say "any blue will do." Everyone I know has a preference. #VoteBlueNoMatterWho means in November, we unite behind the nominee even they aren't our top choice because any Democrat is better than any Republican.
If it's Bloomberg, I will vote for him because every vote is for the better choice. He's still better than Trump. This piece has a lot of truth. Bloomberg does not share my values. We need to nominate one of the others. https://prospect.org/politics/michael-bloomberg-candidacy-mirror-image-trump/
Here's another take on the same there. Bloomberg is not the answer to what Trumpism is doing to the country. He doesn't care about the things that Democrats care about.
No one without ambition and ego runs for president. (Maybe not since George Washington, if you read the Retropolis article yesterday). But Bloomberg is in it all for Bloomberg.
He wouldn't be as bad as Trump. But we're Democrats. We can do better. We have better choices running now. https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/02/michael-bloomberg-2020-democratic-campaign.html?via=taps_top
@AgentHill I am a Dem and I will vote blue no matter who! I am in this to rid our country of the cancer in the White House. I may have my favorite(s) but when it comes to November 3, 2020...my vote goes to the Democratic nominee...Period. We have to save our country and we can't do that when we say crap like "I won't vote if my candidate doesn't win.". It's dangerously self-defeating.
@Saltysister Exactly. Now is the time to convince the rest of the voters in the country -- realistically, the ones in the early states -- to select the best of the candidates. In November we all vote for that person.
This is what you voted for Republicans, This is your lawless, criminal, hate-fueled vision for America. You failed your oath @GOP.

I'm glad he will be in the debate tonight and have to face questions.
I hope the moderators ask good ones so people watching can get a sense of what they don't know about him.
We have much better choices available, no matter what part of the Democratic party you perceive yourself a part of.
259 days of unleashed Trump between now and election day, courtesy of the GOP.
We'll have an overabundance of additional reasons to vote blue all the way down the ballot.
Every Republican who complained about Obama being the "imperial president" and is silent now - we're not forgetting you.
"Since the president's acquittal in the Senate impeachment trial two weeks ago, analysts say, Trump has taken a series of steps aimed at showing that, essentially, he is the law."
@IronMan I know it’s not an original comparison, but it’s like the country learned nothing from the Gilded Age. Our national memory is too short and history education is seriously lacking.
