Candidate Preference... hmmmm... What to declare?

I prefer one candidate base on views, proposals, and philosophy.
I prefer a different candidate based on likelihood to oust trump.

Which way to go? Maybe change my preference every morning based on my mood?

I'm can't decide.

Anybody else in this same fog?

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:

1. "If I were to vote in a presidential primary today, I would vote for..."

 

Who would you vote for today? That's what you're supposed to pick.

2. Thank you, Doc.

 

I flipped a coin and it came up Jefferson.

5. I read a post on RT that your Jefferson choice is a slave owner.

3. Electability is a chimera. Electable candidates have lost. Unelectable candidates have won.

 

Fact is, we can't actually predict who will win this far in advance. Hell, we couldn't even predict a winner one week in advance. So vote for the candidate who, in your own view, has the best combination of policy, personality, trustworthiness, strategy, and ability. You may be surprised to find more people agree with you than you think.

13. mb, the unpredicability you mention has certainly proved to be true.

 

Judging by the constantly changed performance of the debates leaders have flowed and ebbed.

I think right now to put it in gambling numbers I'd rate the candidates like this:

Odds I would have to get to wager on Dem front runners to win GE:
Sanders 20:1
Warren 5:1
Biden 3:2

So as you can see I really don't have any of them as front runners yet, but
Warren and Biden have certainly improved.

I'm still a little pessimistic.

9. Alex, if I were in the booth, THAT is the way I would vote.

 

As you say, anything else is just frustrated dreaming. That bothers me a bunch.

12. Maybe I'm overthinking this.

 

I know who I'd pick to be the president out of th hat w/ nearly 30 people in it.

BUT I am realistic enough to know that that person has very little chance of becoming nominated.

So no matter how much I spend or say "GO GO GO" for Best Prez, BP isn't going to make it thru or to the convention.

Of course, all this applies to about 65% of us.
