31. Even though the media is paying close attention to Sanders, he isn't gaining

 

any momentum. This is in contrast to 2016 when more visibility equaled more support.

People don't seem to be flirting with the idea of democratic socialism as much as they were in the past.

This augurs well for Klobuchar, IMHO. Hear me out: While Biden holds the pragmatism crown now, Klobuchar's platform is closest in substance to what Biden is selling. If Biden slips and Klobuchar's message holds, then I see her inching up in the polls.

I firmly believe that Klobuchar is the sleeper candidate this cycle. She is impressive in town halls, and her proposals seem possible to accomplish. What she needs is more visibility, and will get that during the debates.

She's a bit centrist for my taste, but I know I'm to the left of the average voter. I know that about myself, and would support her enthusiastically.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
