Observations so far that stand out to me, and why I wanted to do this.

So Biden is far less popular here than in the published Polls would suggest he is wiht only 2 votes so far. The same with Kamala Harris only 1 vote to date.

Bernie Sanders is way out in front in the Combined Polls 10 Votes of 24 =  42%

The main Poll now has a NOT INTERESTED option, please Vote if that's how you feel about it.

If you Vote in the Main Poll please try and provide your second choice here too (once you know who that might be). No hurry, these run until the end of 2019

Remember you can come back and change your Vote anytime, thanks

In Germany, we have this long-lasting, well know conspiracy theory stating the town "Bielefeld" does indeed exist. Of course, this is bogus. With Biden in the US we might have a similar thing going on.

Don't let yourself be tricked into believing Joe Biden exists.

I would vote for him too, but he is my first choice, so I'm out of options.

I was in Bielefeld back in November.  ;D

For now, Bernie is 1, Gabbard is 2. This might all change until the end of the year.

So you are a co-conspirator and also you moderate this forum.

Coincidence? I think not! ::)

I've read the article, and although it contains lots of circular propaganda, I admit that I'm not entirely certain that Gabbard, like Trump and Obama, would follow through on her promises once elected. Especially when it comes to the war machine. It's not for nothing that the Democratic Party is heavily promoting the election of former military and intelligence personnel to Congress, and that was obviously Gabbard's way in.

Still, she has seen war up close, like few people here have, so who knows, maybe she's genuinely progressive. Her stances on health care, etc, definitely are. She also renounced her DNC position to support Sanders, instead of cheating him, like the rest did.

So, Gabbard is still number two for me if I could vote, after Sanders. She's better and more progressive than all the others on the list, with the exception perhaps of Warren (who toes the corrupt party line too much for my taste).

That David Duke stuff is just a smear, but the Twitter feed is more interesting.

I agree. I've removed my comments about Tulsi Gabbard, and re-posted in that thread :

Yeah. I didn't realize that.  :o
