The Ryan guy also was pretty good. I'd say of those on the stage Ryan and Delaney were front runners. They were normal and not about screaming louder to be heard.

Buttigieg is sharp but doesn't seem to have a handle on policies and I didn't like some of his stances.
Agree 100%. I thought Ryan had some really good, sensible, ideas. It's a shame he probably won't get very far in this election.

There was a STEEP drop in the ratings for this debate. It was roughly 1/2 the audience of the first night debate last month.


I attribute this in part that people aren't watching CNN anymore. Democrats were foolish to go onto that charade of a news channel.

Candidates who drop out -- do they get to keep all their donated money or does it go back to the Democrat party?

if you believe that, then Warren has you right where she wants you.

the "never happen" is the number of voters who are OK enough with what they have to not give up all rights and responsibility to the federal government. Or the person disagreeing knows it won't hold up against the law*.

or, the idea in question (free college) is so absurd that while it's a fantasy for the candidates & squad, it's just truly absurd.

*one must remember, the ACA only survived by 1 conservative Supreme Court judge declaring that indeed, the Congress had the right to tell Americans they had to buy something, without calling it a tax.

because I wanted to watch it, I did see it on CNN, whereas IIRC the first one was covered by ALL the cable news channels (including Fox). I admit right now I could be wrong about that. But was it only on CNN?

The only half sane people are Gabbart, Yang, Delaney and Hickenlooper. The rest are total loony toons.

I can't see what people see on O'Rouke. Seems like a total loony to me. He has such a weak, pandering, "soy boy" demeanor. At least he didn't pull the corn ball speaking Spanish crap last night.

Bernie and Liz come across as two angry all coots who rant and rave and are delusional in what Americans want. As they were told 180 million people have health insurance they are happy with and don't want the likes of those two old fools screwing it up.

Bernie is a career politician and Eliz is career politics/academia. This is the difference between them an Delaney and Hickenlooper. Loony toons fantasy world vs. people who actually had to sign payroll checks, create jobs and compete in the private sector.
