Wow. How many people are here for Bernie? 2000+?? Huge turnout.
You could hear the cheers from 100m away outside the stadium.
Cynthia Nixon, Sex&City star and progressive Dem, on stage now. Boos ring out when she says she wanted Clinton to win in 2016. “No,” she interrupts. “We’re not going to do that here.”

#1 Tom Steyer is as bland as unflavored Jello & adds no value to the debates. Enough of the white guilt speeches already. He needs to go away now.
#2 Andrew Yang can only sing one note: the Value Added Tax. It's fun to talk about Yang's ideas, but so is debating Star Trek & Star Wars issues. But at the end of the day, we all know that the Force doesn't really work. And, neither would Yang's proposals.

yet another hit piece against a certain candidate.
examples:
"In a rant on MSNBC that went viral on Tuesday evening, the longtime Democratic strategist vented his concerns about the party’s prospects for beating Donald Trump, taking particular aim at the party’s leftward lurch."
"We have candidates on the debate stage talking about open borders and decriminalizing illegal immigration. They’re talking about doing away with nuclear energy and fracking. You’ve got Bernie Sanders talking about letting criminals and terrorists vote from jail cells.
It doesn’t matter what you think about any of that, or if there are good arguments — talking about that is not how you win a national election. It’s not how you become a majoritarian party."

1. Guy on @MSNBC said @JoeBiden can't make an "electability" argument because he's struggled in #Iowa. To me, electability" relates to the race with Trump. Emerging from Democratic Party primary gauntlet where a third want a Socialist, I call "survivability." Money's the issue.
2. For people voting in the #NewHampshirePrimary, if @JoeBiden fades then you may see candidate not even on you #NHprimary ballot move to the top. Biden's loss will be @MikeBloomberg's gain in his push to solidify @theDemocrats' moderates.
3. So by torching Biden during the #ImpeachmentTrial @POTUS stands to lose a weak funder in Biden to run against a real Gazillionaire in @MikeBloomberg? Whose big idea was that plan? @IvankaTrump? @EricTrump? @RudyGiuliani? @parscale? 😎

Hey folks: I wanted to share something @apmresearch just released that I’m very proud of:

Our VOTER PROFILE TOOLS, as part of our broader #RepresentingUS project. (Read: A wealth of data to understand the US electorate in interactive @tableau tools.)
apmresearchlab.org/representingus…
@APMResearch @tableau 2/
We at @apmresearch released these tools on #IowaCaucus day, but expect that they will be valuable up until the #2020election & beyond—to understand how eligible voters differ—often dramatically—from state to state & in each congressional district.

@APMResearch @tableau 3/
Already I’ve read numerous #media stories about the #IowaCaucuses & #NewHampshirePrimary saying those states don’t reflect the nation’s #demographics, but the #journalists didn’t include any data as to HOW they differed and to what degree.
