@AndrewYang  started out unknown, but went on to make a big impact with his campaign built on preparing for America’s future. Andrew, we’ll miss you and the #YangGang on the trail, but I can’t wait to work together to help prepare America for the challenges ahead.

Begging for an endorsement.

No way Steyer would be dropping out now.   NV and SC are where he's been spending most of his money.

Pete is inching closer, Bernie's 5-6 point lead is down to 3.5.

Warren almost sounds like she's dropping out.  She's giving the unity speech.

From Warren's speech...may be a potential harbinger of a future endorsement.

“Amy and I are the only candidates in this race who are not either billionaires or supported by Super PACs,” Warren said of she and Klobuchar.

I said before but if Warren drops out and Bloomberg swoops in then that's a scenario that is really good for Bernie.  If it gets to the convention and Bernie has like 35% of the delegates and Pete, Amy and Bloomberg are at like 20% each it may be party suicide for Bernie to not get the nomination.  Hopefully more nominees follow Warren's lead and push for unity.

I should add that I’d have a political boner for a Pete/Amy ticket. 

This. Please.

Amazing that you're talking about four candidates with delegates and none of them are Biden.

Think she'd have to give that endorsement very soon to make a consequential impact on Super Tuesday.

It may not have to be a formal endorsement...just more of this.

"And I also want to congratulate my friend and colleague Amy Klobuchar for showing just how wrong the pundits can be when they count a woman out," Warren said to applause.

Thank you @AndrewYang for running an issue-focused campaign and working to bring new voters into the political process. I look forward to working together to defeat the corruption and bigotry of Donald Trump.

The biggest question would be support from black voters. South Carolina will give us a bit of a clue how much their early success will help them but I don’t think we’ll get a full picture until Biden is gone. I really think that combo would be tough for Trump to beat.

Early results on New Hampshire primary day: we can now project that Bernie Sanders has suffered big losses in all cable TV green rooms. Losses appear to be particularly severe in the key MSNBC precincts.

Man I love Sirota- only reason they say he’s divisive is because he dunks on them too hard

When was the last time two primary opponents end up on the same ticket?

We haven't had a good South Carolina poll since January 9. Last good Nevada poll was January 14. After producing a million New Hampshire polls this last week, hopefully the pollsters are freed up to tackle those two states now.

They seem redundant. I think both would be better served with a more complimentary running mate...but first one of them has to over take Bernie.

And that's also why I think it may be a mistake for the GOP to push Bernie - I could see folks being just as surprised about President Sanders as folks were about waking up to a President Trump.

One of the CNN folks pointed out that if you just listed the things Bernie has going for him that if it were any other candidate the DNC would declare the race over.  Does incredible with young people, popular with minorities and has an unbelievable ground game and small donors.

Interesting because the knock against him against Clinton was he did poorly with minorities. Which is dumb given his civil rights activism in his youth.

If she were to endorse Klobuchar and not Bernie, we better hope Bernie doesn’t win the nomination. Imagine Trump being able to rip Bernie as being so extreme that even another progressive was unwilling to endorse him. It would fall right in line with a campaign attack of fearing the socialist and probably would work.

He's got a good lead with non-white voters in the latest Monmouth poll... 28%, Biden 20%, everyone else 12% or less

Beyond that, they would be terrific governing.

Raw vote count difference has stayed about the same (5k or so), but the % obviously drops as more come in.

I thought it was interesting from the perspective of "fresh faces" vs. "old guard." Wondering if it might signal people might not think the old guard can beat Trump.

Klobuchar with the "here's my life story" speech because she knows most people have no idea who she is.

I really do think that Klobuchar would own Trump in a debate.

A bighorn sheep on high doses of ambien with a lisp would own Trump in a debate.

Any other population centers outstanding, or does Sanders need to outlast now?

Klobuchar has a sharp campaign. Been on in primetime both of these nights. Beginning to think the "she knows how to win" is an honest-to-goodness assessment of Amy.
