Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Mar 12, 2020, 10:17 AM

 

After money, politicians pay attention to voters most.


And that's why I encourage all of you to continue to vote for your preferred candidate even if they have dropped out (assuming they are still on your ballot).

Even if you are convinced that Biden will be the Democratic nominee, it will be noticed if Yang, Buttigieg, Warren, Klobuchar, Sanders, etc still get votes.

Don't vote for someone merely because you think they will be the eventual nominee. If you vote for them, they think you like them the best.

Having said that I will vote for the Democratic nominee even if I wish they had retired from politics.

2. Well, that's a very clumsy recommendation.

 

Why would anyone vote for a withdrawn candidate at this point? The answer is that they won't do that. People are not as stupid as you apparently think they are. Or wish they were. You know that voting for a non-running candidate helps Bernie, and that's why you are suggesting that people vote for candidates who aren't running.

Almost all voters want their vote to mean something. They're not going to throw their votes away on a candidate who is no longer running, no matter how much that might help Bernie Sanders.

Now that the primary election is down to just two serious candidates running, people's votes are for which they think is BETTER

People will not take your advice. They're too smart to fall for that.

3. If Warren is on my ballot I will likely vote for her.

 


If Biden is destiny at this point, then my Warren vote means more going to her.


The only reason I have Sanders as my DU Primary Forum preference is that he fits best out of the choices available.

4. Trying to lower Biden's margins?

 

The blowouts are only going to get bigger and bigger. I supported Pete, and I believe that Pete will play a role in a Biden administration, so I'll gladly vote for Joe.

7. Oh...they are not going to be on the ballots (rarely) in the upcoming elections...is that the plan?

 

Hope that moderates split the vote enough before they dropped out in order to give Sanders a chance...he has no chance and should concede immediately. The numbers are truly awful for him.
