This is my local news station, but I sincerely doubt I’ll be watching the debate tonight. The only people looking forward to it are those who think politics is a less glittery form of professional wrestling, and I’m sure that any “news” will reach me second-hand via social media in record time.
The Buttigieg surge in NH is obviously quite significant. I'd sort of love to see a poll of NV or SC though. https://t.co/CLQFbRJbUr

I suspect Buttigieg took most of those ‘new’ votes away from Sanders, who has been widely regarded as the inevitable winner, because the Live Free or Die state is bottom-heavy with anarcho-libertarians and ‘Peoples Republic of Massachusetts” self-styled refugees. Also, the state takes great pride in being Not Iowa, because fvck those rubes, with their dumb-arse ‘caucus’ routine, stealing NH’s media-tourist dollars during the slow season. But now that Iowa has proven itself publicly incapable of picking a winner — and Buttigieg has moved to top position as the choice to piss off the actual Democrats, among NH’s not-inconsiderable crossover Repub/’independent’ primary voters — well, he’s not my first choice but more power to him, regardless.
Excellent suggestion for the debate, which almost certainly won’t happen:
Both Bernie and Biden should announce their VP picks. Bernie especially, because have a right to know if a vote for him is a vote for President Gabbard in 2022.

Also, ongoing irritation with the entire political horse-race media: Pete won, or maybe Bernie, but Joe definitely lost. What else is there to say?…
.@ewarren came out of Iowa in the top three. She OVER-PERFORMED the polling. If you are leaving her off graphs or reporting her as anything other than top three, you are erasing her and promoting a sexist narrative. Do your job. Stop erasing women.
