Harris supporter here... but damn, Buttigieg's doing a hell of a job.

He’s really impressive.

2. Harris/

 

Buttegieg?!!!!!

What "demographics" would that cover? Enough to win?

Hate to sound craven...but, on politics I think most if not ALL our D candidates make it!!!

I like them all - Castro, Booker, Warren, Swalwell, Inslee

Embarrassment of riches!

On edit: I like Bernie and Joe, too, but ready for new blood, and I think their perspectives are covered by the above.

12. Demographics? Pete? What mother wouldn't love this guy?

 

New York Magazine https://nym.ag/2v5Eikd

Sick of old people? He looks like Alex P. Keaton.
Scared of young people? He looks like Alex P. Keaton.
Religious? He’s a Christian.
Atheist? He’s not weird about it.
Wary of Washington? He’s from flyover country.
Horrified by flyover country? He has degrees from Harvard and Oxford.
Make the President Read Again? He learned Norwegian to read Erlend Loe.
Traditional? He’s married.
Woke? He’s gay.
Way behind the rest of the country on that? He’s not too gay.
Worried about socialism? He’s a technocratic capitalist.
Worried about technocratic capitalists? He’s got a whole theory about how our system of “democratic capitalism” has to be a whole lot more “democratic.”
If you squint hard enough to not see color, some people say, you can almost see Obama the inspiring professor.
Oh, and he’s the son of an immigrant, a Navy vet, speaks seven foreign languages (in addition to Norwegian, Arabic, Spanish, Maltese, Dari, French, and Italian), owns two rescue dogs, and plays the goddamn piano.
He’s actually terrifying. What mother wouldn’t love this guy?

3. I love the guy....

 

....I'm undecided for a variety of cynical reasons (my primary vote never counts despite being in one of the bluest states in the country, lack of actual faith in our process, etc.). But he's the closest to someone making me want to get off the bench based off of what I've seen so far.

5. Lots of great Democratic candidates.

 

I like all the Democratic candidates and any of them better than Dump.

But I feel Biden the most qualified both nationally and globally.

7. He's the reason

 

I'm back to being Undecided. Just too many Educated, Qualified, and dammit, I just like 'em, Candidates for me to commit at the moment. Plus, being 1 1/2 years out, who knows what may happen. I do know this, I just suffered through 30 minutes of fux news while sitting with my elderly Dad, and jeez, they are pulling out all the stops trying their best to have Democrats fight amongst themselves.

Seems GOP has got that tactic pretty much locked down.

I love Harris too!

11. Oh, I'm still with Harris.

 

But if she doesn't win the nomination, I would be very happy with Buttegieg. What's different about this year is that there are multiple candidates whom I would vote for (as opposed to just voting against the Republican).

13. I agree

 

My first choice is Kamala Harris. But Buttigieg is a strong contender!
