I keep hearing talk about Super Tuesday, can anyone give me the quick rundown on what that is about?

14 states, including California, Massachusetts and Virginia hold their primary on the SAME DAY...March 3. Tremendous number of delegates up for grabs.

Also, California is so huge you can't really saturate with TV ads so you have to be a leading candidate going in or spend spectacular amounts of money
Thanks mate. I think that is the day Bloomberg is going to enter the fray isn't it.

Every Bernie Bro is all excited that he just took one of the most left wing states in the country by 1.5% against effectively 4 opponents who are all to varying degrees carbon copies.
I think yesterday's results were a DISASTER for him. He needed to win by 10-15% at least.

IMO, Sanders is already done. His only chance is that the big 4 'moderates' (by Dem standards only) of Buttgag, Soccer Mom, Biden, Lyawatha all stay in and split the moderate vote long enough for him to cleanup on Super Tuesday. Otherwise, once they start dropping out the vote will collect on one candidate and that will be enough to give them the lead.

I feel that there will be a lot of pressure from the DNC for the low hanging fruit to drop out as they once again try to engineer a result through all possible measures except quality candidates and rational, workable policy.

"Soccer Mom?" Is that Klobuchar's nickname? It makes me think of Gabbard, aka "Mommy," who I think already dropped out?

cynical, brutal, but honest analysis.
I'm worried abt trump's health, given his age and eating habits. Suppose his liver, heart, whatever collapse before Nov 2020? Or he commits some constitutional outrage that indeed removes him frm office. Anything is possible with this guy, he is a loose, overweight, personally unhealthy, unbalanced cannon, if there ever was one. What then? An emergency Pence candidacy? sanctioned by whom? A Bernie toenail has more charisma with national voters than Pence, no disrespect to Pence. Be very afraid.

I would be more worried about Bernie tbh, the guy literally had a heart attack on the campaign trail last year.

Gabbard is still there, probably not for much longer though.

I meant Klobo by soccer mom.

I think of Tulsi as Grade A MILFHAR.

Pence could not win at the top of the ticket in all likelihood. Nikki Haley could
