  1. I think I probably share more values in common with the average immigrant than I do with the average Trump supporter.
  2. Except that both of the phrases you mention were taken out of context and used by right wing media to rile up those voters. I don't really think it's possible to avoid. We might as well call all Trump voters racist, because if you choose your words very carefully and make sure never to paint with a broad brush, right wing media will nevertheless portray your remarks as "Trump voters are racist idiots."
  3. None of the Democratic primaries are winner-takes-all.
  4. Agree with all of this, but this advice is only useful if we know which candidates are most likely to beat Trump, and how much more likely they are than other potential nominees.
  5. September debates will probably look something like these 8, plus maybe Beto. Wouldn't be surprised if Andrew Yang gets in too. The narrowing is coming fast.
  6. I feel like this is a trap though. Yes, we all agree that the most important thing is beating Trump. But this also feels like a rare opportunity to elect someone like Warren who might have trouble getting elected against the type of candidate that Republicans have historically had. I personally don't think Warren's chances to win are all that different from any of the more centrist candidates so it makes sense to me to support her. Of course this is all based on my own biases, people like timschochet seem to think Warren or Sanders have a much worse chance of winning than someone like Biden. If I believed that I'd be more inclined to support Biden or someone like him.
  7. I really see almost zero evidence that voters are capable of distinguishing between a "left-leaning centrist" and an "extreme leftist." What are you basing this on?
  8. Probably shouldn't ask what people think and then respond this way when people actually tell you.
  9. I don't think there's any kind of consensus on any of this. My perspective on #1, though, is that the type of people you're talking about are likely to vote anyway and we shouldn't spend a lot of time trying to tiptoe around so we don't make them upset.
  10. In 2016 some people voted for Trump that weren't "his base." Those people might care.
  11. 5 is gay and young 6 is a black guy (giving Corey Booker the #6 spot even though there's a big gap between 5 and 6 right now)
  12. My personal belief is that Democrats would benefit in 2020 if the House impeaches, even though the Senate won't remove him.
  13. What if impeaching him decreased his odds of election? Would that change your perspective?
  14. Wait then why did they raise their hands at the debate?
