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.

Referring back to this thread to see who all is voting next week. Handier than Google. Thanks, Omar.

Using my American Nations geographic/cultural formula that was 100% accurate for Bernie vs. Hillary, Bernie wins all the northern states and states settled from the northern colonies - Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota (Amy who?), Vermont and I'm gonna say Utah (because the Mormons were from Vermont) and California. California is split north and south but the population centers are mostly northern - and Mexican. Warren could have a chance in a couple (Massachusetts?) but not likely.

That leaves Bama, Arkansas, Colorado, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia to sort things out. I'm guessing Biden, but possibly Bloomberg. Warren and Mayor Pete are long shots.

And American Samoa, God only knows.

Bernie has a big lead now but he doesn't have it wrapped up.Things will likely look very different next week.

The next couple weeks should be interesting to say the least.

Next Tuesday Joe and Bernie will likely split the other states evenly, but Michigan is the real wildcard. Sanders narrowly won it in 2016 but the most recent polls have Biden with a moderate lead and he just picked up the Governor's endorsement yesterday. Bernie has pulled out of Mississippi early to head north for some last minute campaigning...

On the 15th we have the final debate and maybe we'll get the answer to the Business Insider feature titled "Tulsi Gabbard Is Still In The 2020 Race And It's Unclear Why". While it should make for some great TV, I can't help wondering if Gabbard has CPR training...

Then on the 17th you have the Florida, Illinois and Ohio primaries with over 500 delegates up for grabs...could be either Bernie's own big comeback or the final nail in his coffin

Like I said, should be interesting...

Ain't that the truth... like in 2016 when Bernie was the vote winner by the people before he was declared NOT the winner by some Super Delegates...... :bonk:

Bernie's people crying "We won it before we lost it", taking a infamous line from another prominent Democrat John "I was for it before I was against it" Kerry...!

* Those POLLS in Michigan given to you by the media and various polling organizations had Clinton with a 21 point lead by average according to Real Clear Politics. One would have to wonder how this outcome was remotely possible. Many have considered this the biggest upset in American political history.

The Trump drone complaining about the person with fewer popular votes winning more delegates...absolutely priceless! :lol:
