Miami Vise: Who's Gonna Get Squeezed in the Dem Debates?

Born To Run The Numbers makes predictions about the Democratic debates: who will rise, who will fall, who will beat expectations, and who will flat-line in the aftermath...


Excerpts: "This will be the essential drama of the debates, and it is Biden’s Miami Vise.

Or will he bound onto the stage, bursting with sass and wreaking ‘tood, all in a calculated effort to show that he can still mix it up with the kids and has the moxy to take it to the Insulter-in-Chief next fall? ...Biden’s performance will be further magnified by the fact that many of the candidates will be playing Biden Go Seek.
"Talk about a Miami Vise: to Bernie’s left is a younger, female, high-energy ascending rock star who has stolen his thunder as the party’s leftist policy wonk, and to Bernie’s right is another craggy over-75-year-old white guy who is crushing him in the early polls...

The bet here is that while Biden’s performance is considered solid, Buttigieg is the next morning’s lead story.
"The conventional wisdom is that there is 'no downside to running for President.' That theory holds that a run is great for name recognition, visibility, and can set you up for a cabinet post or even the VP nod. However, it is hard to see how that theory is holding up for any of Kirsten Gillibrand, Beto O’Rourke, Cory Booker, or Amy Klobuchar..."
