7. Time flies by


Ah, the good old days of 2008... lol

Ok, seriously, MM, that was 11 years ago.

Forget for a moment that I think Obama's strategy was more liberal than Biden's is, Hope and Change and all, let's look at what has changed in the party since just 2008.

That chart again from 538:

Time is moving forward, and honestly, might have left Biden's strategy behind.

He might be plateaued out at 35-40% of democrat voters judging by that chart.

The only question in my mind is whether the progressive candidates will divide up their segment of the party with so many candidates allowing Biden to sneak in with a plurality.

If winning with a plurality is Biden's plan, which it seems to be, I think it will lose out by the end of primary season.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Cory Booker
