    March 3 will narrow the field to a reasonable number. Up to now with so many they are just diluting their share.

    Who will remain? Beats the hell out of me but Bloomberg will play a big role when the rubber hits the road 3 Nov. Which imo is the real "Super Tuesday".
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Well, IMHO ole Bloomberg is the only one who can unseat tRump. I don’t give a f#¥@ if it takes somebody who can buy out tRump. I want that orange douche gone. The rest are a bunch of namby pamby wankers afraid to get dirty and fight the coont. Bloomberg will roll up his sleeves and play dirty.

    Clinton better stay well away if they want to have a hope in hell. Half the problem is she completely lacks charisma.
    "In my professional assessment as an intelligence officer, Trump has a reflexive, defensive, monumentally narcissistic personality, for whom the facts and national interest are irrelevant, and the only thing that counts is whatever gives personal advantage and directs attention to himself."

    Well if the BBC are getting behind Sanders. God Help America.

    China will become the worlds police, faster than we ever thought, if Sanders got elected.

    All Americans know candidates who raise and spend the most win. Nothing new now except Bloomberg is directly involved rather than indirectly with individual and corporate donations. Won't trouble with a huge text wall but here is a link for those who care to bother.

    Like it or not Bloomberg is just the force needed to get rid of the CinC (kunt in Chief).

    I say good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Politics makes strange bedfellows.

    "Political interests can bring together people who otherwise have little in common. This saying is adapted from a line in the play The Tempest, by William Shakespeare: “Misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows.” It is spoken by a man who has been shipwrecked and finds himself seeking shelter beside a sleeping monster."

    The sleeping monster now has a name. Mayor Mike.

    Well that's all rather melodramatic.

    Name a specific policy of his that would lead to ruining the US / world economies.

    Putting more money in the hands of workers who will thereby spend more money and stimulate the economy is going to ruin the economy!?

    I don't think you've thought that one through.

    I not think you have thought through,what it would do to employers.

    Companies would cross the border for cheaper labour, and small businesses would go out of business

    His proposal is a little over a 100% increase.

    Which is what they’ve been doing for decades.

    As for the wailing about small companies going out of business the SF experience proves that wrong.

    Ant, corporate America owns America and if Sanders becomes the President,they will have no hesitation on pulling the plug.

    And depending on what you read, there is a estimate that 1.3 million jobs could be lost,if Sanders becomes the president.

    I totally agree that all should be earning a decent living wage,though socialism is now a dead weight, and a real threat to the west for future generations.

    There certainly needs to be a radical re-think, though Sanders is a real threat.

    I don't disagree that Sanders isn't the solution, but this constant that US companies will leave is irrelevant as they do so at their whim anyway. Trump hasn't halted it either, despite his massive tax cuts


    Which socialist country are you thinking of?

    Not any particular country, though the elements of the Nordic countries I would say are the most fairest.

    Complete garbage. Seattle has a $15 an hour minimum wage and it has not caused any business to move or go out of business. As a matter of fact Seattle has a booming economy and raising the minimum wage has has the effect of raising wages across the board as employers have had to raise wages for higher paying jobs to stay ahead of the minimum. You really are over your head posting in here.

    I beg to differ and he is not a communist. More of a social democrat in a European tradition. More in line with politicians in Northern Europe.

    I agree, but none are socialist, though. It'd be difficult to find one now.

    ^ this

    There are social(ist) policies that have been around in the US for decades, social security, the military (yep- housing, food, tuition, healthcare etc...), government health coverage etc...

    Snub,

    Isn't around Seattle,Washington area, Boeing and private healthcare companies.

    I would of thought,under President Sanders those health care companies would be under threat,and Boeing is under threat as well considering there recent problems.
