Despite Low Poll Numbers, O’Malley’s Camp Continues to Trudge Forward,

Swinging Hard at Clinton and Sanders Along the Way.

'Putting principle over polls seems to be the mantra of Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley’s flailing campaign.

That and immigration reform.'>>>

1. In a saner world he'd be doing much better in the polls

No one has worked harder than he has
He has made a strong case to be the nominee
I'm hoping he does well in Iowa and NH to get noticed in SC and Nevada
Sanders may have trouble resonating in South Carolina.
But, I don't think O' Malley would if people heard him.

3. No problem

I'm still leaning Sanders
But, I have wavered
A friend of mine who switched to O' Malley from Clinton said it was because O' Malley has executive experience
He makes a rather compelling case that having great ideas is nice, but being able to implement them is what executive office holders do
His argument is way too long write out completely, but that's the theme in a nutshell
I'm an overseas voter, so I have a little time to decide

4. I'm happy to hear this, that you've wavered,

and that your friend provided you with what I (and MO'M) think is the WINNING reason to select him. LOTS of examples in his various presentations, including this brief one:
