One thing about Pete & Bernie is they are both going after Trump voters

Are any of the other candidates doing that?
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Elizabeth Warren

1. Will happily vote for Pete.

 

Once polling of candidates against Cheetolini in key battleground states comes out, I may even switch my main support to him.

The other, no, never.

3. I think it's interesting how different Pete & Bernie are.

 

Bernie being so angry and Pete being so calm. Among other things.

4. They all are.

 

Unlike Trump and his minions, the proposals made and policy positions taken by our candidates are intended to help the vast majority of people, including Trump voters.

Just because they're not going on Fox News doesn't mean they're not trying to appeal to as many voters as possible.

5. differences

 

Bernie is going after Trump voters partly by being an angry white guy - channeling their anger approach (what Trump does).

Pete is going after Trump voters by being sympathetic to their plight - but not assuming they are bad (deplorable), etc.

I haven't noticed strategies by any of the others. Sure - any Democratic policy proposal should appeal to anyone who is reasonable. Bernie does not assume they are reasonable. Pete may not either - but he is more concerned about insulting them.
