Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Mon Mar 2, 2020, 12:24 PM

 

Joe just hit 20%.

He and Elizabeth are now tied on DU. I wonder if this represents any larger trends outside DU? Go Joe! Letís kick the fascist out on his ass in November!

1. I voted early as usual. My husband has been waiting. He decided on Joe after SC.

 

He says he just wants someone that can bring us back to normal.

It seems fairly safe to say, just by comparing DU numbers to polls in general, that DU is wildly out of step with the Democratic party as a whole.

DU has more center-left to left posters while the party in general has more moderate but also more far-left than DU.

So unless DU has attained a stronger pragmatic streak, I'd say the trend is larger outside of DU

what Iíve observed is that DU has mostly center-left to left posters while the party as a whole has more moderate/conservatives but also more far left than DU.

20. Actually

 

For the last almost 20 years, DU has been decidedly more progressive than the Democratic party as a whole, favoring candidates like Howard Dean, Dennis Kucinich, Barack Obama (before they realized he was moderate), and Bernie Sanders over candidates like John Kerry and Hillary Clinton.

And I reject any notion the Democratic party is/has been conservative.

But conservative Democrats do exist, Iíve known a few. I agree that overall weíre more left than the party but Iíve seen more far left types outside of DU, like on Twitter, Facebook, and that horrible JPR site.

I don't think anyone has said any differently.

I agree that overall weíre more left than the party

Like I said.

but Iíve seen more far left types outside of DU, like on Twitter, Facebook, and that horrible JPR site.

of course. And I've seen anarchists elsewhere. DU has never been the home of extreme radicals (or they didn't last long), but DU has long had a far left bend to it. Joe Biden leading Sanders, and tying with Warren, doesn't necessarily mean the site is more moderate than it's ever been. It likely means it's more pragmatic in the face of a second Trump term.

I've pointed this out more than once. The country is Center/Left. Many here ignore that. Center/Left voters will vote for Joe in November. I believe that Biden will pick a strong progressive Dem woman to run as VP. That should make a lot of folks happy.

35. I've always found most DUers

 

to be very liberal, but there are many experienced voices here that are also pragmatic and want a nominee who can beat Donald Trump. That's not saying that Joe isn't a progressive, most of our candidates are, but he is our best progressive to win in a general election. Also he could get progressive policies through congress.

the bigger matter is getting rid of trump.

2024 with Mayor Pete as VP. Joe would handle foreign policy for 1 term to go on a worldwide ďapology tourĒ while Liz tears into Wall Street and big media ala Teddy Roosevelt.
