2020 Presidential Primary Calendar

Post by Omar Bongo » Thu Jan 09, 2020 4:23 pm

I saw on another thread that the Democratic field is now supposedly down to 3 candidates, so I thought this somewhat pertinent information might come in handy. You can find the rest of the schedule up to the election itself on the site linked below. I only posted the sched up to Super Tuesday because if this thing isn't decided by then it could spell curtains for the Dems in the general...

Jan. 14 Iowa Democratic debate

Feb. 3 Iowa caucuses

Feb. 7 New Hampshire Democratic debate

Feb. 11 New Hampshire primaries

Feb. 19 Nevada Democratic debate

Feb. 22 Nevada Democratic caucuses

Feb. 25 South Carolina Democratic debate

Feb. 29 South Carolina Democratic primary

March 3 Alabama primaries; American Samoa Democratic caucus; Arkansas primaries; California primaries; Colorado primaries; Maine primaries; Massachusetts primaries; Minnesota primaries; North Carolina primaries; Oklahoma primaries; Tennessee primaries; Texas primaries; Utah primaries; Vermont primaries; Virginia Democratic primary

well this seems like an #important thread......, looking at 2016 only thing that mattered was what #SuperDelegates decided...., rendering everything else #Mute

I see you get your talking points from the right-wing spin machine...how about we look at the actual facts instead?

Hillary won 34 state primaries/caucuses and 2,842 delegates. Bernie won 23 states and 1,865 delegates. She got about 17 million total votes and he got about 13 million. FYI that's before the convention where the "Superdelegates" cast their votes...

Bernie didn't win because he didn't get enough votes from "regular" voters, period. Maybe you're confused, it's only in the general election that the guy with less votes wins :mex:

I wouldn't complain if the states got together and packed all of the primaries into a couple months. Less would be hard for the campaigns to do, but it's all but over in March yet they keep going into June. It kind of turns the rest of them into "Yeah, me too" events.
