I also don't think the Franken thing hurt her, if anything it is the only thing she did that gave her any identity. 
noticing most stories about her only mention two things...franken and NRA A rating
definitely failed to make a narrative about her in the campaign

Just saw this...false flag...but kinda funny
A sad day for the Democrats, Kirsten Gillibrand has dropped out of the Presidential Primary. I’m glad they never found out that she was the one I was really afraid of!
welp at least they have this tweet to remember the campaign

it is interesting in the dem primary...except for mayor Pete...seems like the initial top picks have stayed the top picks
when the republicans had 16...many of them led polling and got big bumps (and press) along the way

there were times when Fiorina, Walker, Rubio, Carson, and Jeb were all leading in polling (is it me but neither Cruz, Kasich or Trump never led in the polls but they were the last three)

been pretty much the same leaders since it's started with the dems



Unrealted
from what I read...this headline sums it all up The new James Comey report proves whatever you want it to prove
the spin from both sides is like they are reading two different documents

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz abandons 2020 presidential ambitions
not that he even had a chance...I don't really know anyone who liked him as a candidate


this was interesting, but not surprising
Republicans to scrap primaries and caucuses
"Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend"

Is there any precedent to this?

This made me chuckle
Joe Walsh "Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.” super soft with over 90% approval in the party. Joe I don't think you know what that word means

Valerie Plame is running in New Mexico for the house. ...and has a kick ass ad

oh and Mark Sanford didn't get the memo that the RNC pretty much isn't allowing people to primary Trump...but he's running

trump predictably tweeted "“But now take heart, he is back, and running for President of the United States. The Three Stooges, all badly failed candidates, will give it a go!”

Nate's called him one of the BOCK candidates (Booker/O’Rourke/Castro/Klobuchar) and giving them a TKO on 2020

looking like last 5 standing will be
Warren, Harris, Buttigieg (still a little bit of a shocker), Biden and Sanders

Obviously February is a few months away...but not looking good for the other 15 major candidates still running
apparently there are over 250 people who filed with the FEC to run for president in the Democratic Party primary

He was always FOR THE FUTURE. Why doesn't anyone pay attention when I tell you things?

Is there any doubt that Warren would be the nominee if Bernie dropped out?

I would definitely have doubt. We'd have to talk about who else dropped out too. Are we talking we wake up on 9/11/2019 and only Biden and Warren are left or everything is exactly the same except Bernie is out? Do I get to intuit who else drops out before Iowa/New Hampshire?

I would definitely have more doubt than in Space's hypothetical scenario. Bernie is a total non-starter.

I don't know.  I think Warren is more palatable to the establishment because Bernie's in the race.  Without him, I think she becomes way more of a threat and would have a lot more energy put up against her. 

Plus, while there's obvious reason to compare the two on policies, their base doesn't seem to have the overlap you'd think.



From Pew: https://www.people-press.org/2019/08/16/most-democrats-are-excited-by-several-2020-candidates-not-just-their-top-choice/pp_2019-08-16_2020-democratic-candidates_0-06/

And it's two months old-ish at this point, but this had a good summary of the differences:

https://www.politico.com/amp/story/2019/07/12/sanders-warren-voters-2020-1408548

"In poll after poll, Sanders appeals to lower-income and less-educated people; Warren beats Sanders among those with postgraduate degrees. Sanders performs better with men, Warren with women. Younger people who vote less frequently are more often in Sanders’ camp; seniors who follow politics closely generally prefer Warren.

Sanders also has won over more African Americans than Warren: He earns a greater share of support from black voters than any candidate in the race except for Joe Biden, according to the latest Morning Consult surveys."
