1. I still love Jay Inslee. But I could definitely support Mayor Pete.

 

Every time I’ve heard him speak I’ve been impressed, and then more impressed. I like his ideas, his take on things. AND his demeanor. He behaves like a serious and thoughtful public servant. He’s presidential already. I can easily picture him behind “that” desk where he’d bring a clear view, an open mind, and wise decision-making to the job. Which is what we need in a President. Someone we could look up to, again. At long last.

2. I really like Inslee too. I think he would make a superb Green Czar (I guess I should stop using

 

Czar anymore, lolol) if he doe not get the nomination.

5. His climate crisis priorities really spoke loudly to me.

 

Like I’ve not quite heard from any of the others. YES several of them have stressed the subject and at least indicate that they take it seriously. (As they SHOULD!!!) but Inslee’s all in on it. It’s everywhere in his point of view. But that’s probably because it’s like that in my own point of view.

I’ve become a “Planet FIRST” type of gal. Because if we don’t do something decisive about THIS problem, nothing else is gonna matter much - regarding ANY of our other problems.

Have to be pretty happy with polls and rankings considering name recognition and the time left.

6. People, it's March going into April.

 

If we keep doing this up and down stuff, we're looking at a major split which will not be good for anyone.

Talk to me in December.

8. Then don't click on them.

 

Still waiting on your answer as to whey you posted the population for South Bend as 65,000. Off by 47%.

9. I make a mistake so you insult me?

 

He may be a good candidate, but supporters like you are sadly hurting his cause with those who may want to support him.

Just because I'm not on the Buttigieg train, doesn't mean I will be silenced.

14. I'm sorry, but I didn't know this thread was limited to Buttigieg supporters only.

 

If you read my post, I didn't insult anyone. All I said was it's still early. The Iowa caucus isn't until February.

He's probably flown under his radar so far.

19. It is an insult to the term power ratings to have so much movement

 

Laughable. Beyond laughable. Power ratings by definition are rigid and unimpressed. Absolutely nothing of note is happening in March 2019. There should be maybe one or two moves of one spot. That's it, and even that is a liberal interpretation.

I am forever amazed at so much desperation to change mind based on short term nothingness. But that's why the lies and fake news crap are so successful. People no longer hold onto a value system or long term foundational belief when they can be scared away, or otherwise influenced, on a moment's notice.
