Why I'm switching from Warren to Buttigieg ...it was hard t do

This has been a real struggle but I have fallen victim to the media and nonstop talk that Warren & Sanders can not win a general election. I love Warren and she was awesome last night. I'm closer aligned to her polices (& Sanders) then anyone else on the stage. If I could wave a magic wand I would wave her into office because I think she would make massive change.

With that said, I do have concerns because Warren is already painted as a fringe candidate and extreme candidate. Which I believe these labels are false and more Americans align with her polices. But perception is reality ... specially in politics.

Pete Buttigieg is an amazing individual. I have never seen anyone as quick witted and speak so well in my life. This guy is an special talent. He is amazing to watch preform. He does have a more media "mainstream" policy so he cannot be labeled fringe.

He has a very unifying tone. He is a fresh face to the political scene and does not have that insider voting history to use against him. He would be able to bring young people to vote and I think he gives us the best chance to beat Trump.

Yes, I'm falling into picking the best candidate to beat Trump. A lot of people will say that is Biden but I disagree. I believe we need a candidate that can excite the American people. Young people to turn out and vote. Someone who can speak to youth and older voters. Someone who with their words can unite people. To inspire people. Want to give money & time. Knock on doors. I do not think Biden is that candidate.

People will try and use the experience subject against Buttigieg. But I actually do not think that is even a high issue when it comes to voters. Specially not younger voters. Besides Buttigieg answers that question so well. And when you hear him talk because he is so highly educated and speaks so clearly you think he knows every subject like he has been studying it for 30 years.

Chris Matthews interviewing Buttigieg after the debate even asked his age and said its stunning at Buttigieg wealth of knowledge is extraordinary (paraphrasing). The experience will be a nonissue to voters. Just listen to the interview.

Link to interview:

I still think Obama was the greatest politician giving speeches I have ever heard. But Buttigieg is the best at being asked direct questions and responding I have ever heard.

I still love Warren. I would still be very happy with Warren and I would support Biden, Harris, Sanders with all my heart. Really anyone on that stage last night. But I do think Buttigieg gives us the best chance to beat Trump plus still gives us the excitement to want to vote for a candidate.

Biden reminds me of an old boxer

A old boxer that was once a great fighter and loved to watch him compete in the ring. But now he is past his prime and I feel bad watching him take a beating.

I have always liked Biden but it is hard watching him in these debates. He cannot even get a coherent sentence out. He misspeaks consistently and loses his train of thought.

How can anyone honestly say this isn't true. The media is finally starting to call this out. I know everyone tries to look the other way and act like it isn't true because most feel Biden is the best chance to beat Trump. I actually felt this way also. I thought Biden would be the easiest road to removing Trump. I just like other candidates policies more and think most of the top 5 would beat Trump.

But I'm starting to worry now that Biden wont be able to beat Trump if people actually pay attention. Trump will use this against Biden. I worry Trump will make a mockery of Biden being incoherent on stage with him. He already release a video of it. They will beat this subject into the ground and just show samples of Biden. This could be ugly
