    More a problem with the messenger or messaging vs the message.

    Something needs done in the US obviously but the Dems don't have an ideal candidate.

    Yes they do... in the sense that Biden seems to be winning them... but if you are talking about demographics/early polling... Massachusetts and Minnesota certainly didn't seem to favor Biden before tonight.

    Well, it's certainly better for any candidate I might be working for in the fall, that's for sure, but I dunno about wet dream status.

    I'm guessing they worked out it's Biden vs Sanders and are voting.

    Warren's done.

    I heard Bloomberg took American Samoa, so there's that.

    None of the above
    I thought Tulsi would won her home turf in American Samoa (not Hawaii, that was Bernieland)

    CNN just called Minnesota for Biden.

    I'm actually surprised our friend Tulsi Gabbard didn't take it, given hometown advantage - she was actually born there. It's actually a bigger slap than Warren losing Massachusetts.

    Quoted from Saturday. The early withdrawals changed things, and it is now conceivable that Biden wakes up in first place tomorrow instead of a strong second, and that may conceivably knock out the last contender in Biden's lane.

    Who is Biden transferring his Presidential responsibilties to when he becomes unable to fulfill his oath of office, if he wins the general election?

    Along the same lines, Bloomberg carried Dixville Notch in the New Hampshire primary (despite not being on the ballot), apparently because he called all five voters there personally.

    And, er, the reason I know this is, Dixville Notch is the "town" where they all get up at 12:01AM of Primary Day to cast the first primary ballots (i.e. Iowa's caucusing notwithstanding) of the presidential campaign every four years.

    Exit polling in California shows Sanders by ten. That's nowhere near the blowout he needs I don't think. That would have been good until Biden won Virginia so big and kept Texas close.

    I will note FTR that Minnesota is the one and only state that voted against Reagan in 1984, and the one and only state that voted against Reagan twice. Minnesota is about as deep blue liberal-progressive as it gets.

    Bernie was killing it in polling in Minnesota... Biden didn't even bother campaigning there... as in he spent ZERO dollars in Minnesota...

    The fact that Bernie inexplicably lost what was supposed to be a layup in Minnesota is extremely significant. Klobuchar reportedly mobilized her whole staff to get out the vote for Biden... you better believe she is going to come collecting later.
