    Up to the first break

    Bloomberg lost
    - wrong apology for stop and frisk
    - failed to admit that Obama sent monitors in to moderate what he was doing
    - clobbered on treatment of women in the workplace, admitted his jokes could have been received as offensive, and he would not nullify non-disclosure agreements

    Bloomberg does not have a movement behind him, but he still can beat Trump.

    Pete Buttigieg made the point that Bloomberg isn't really a Democrat, not really a standard-bearer of Democrats.

    I missed the debate but saw excepts from it. Quite honestly, I was completely, totally, and entirely disgusted with the uncivilized behavior. I'm not saying that the points were wrong. However, civilized people ought to be able to disagree in a civilized manner. It looks as though when the time comes to vote for president we will have to choose between a narcistic man who cares only for himself and wants to be a dictator and a Democrat who is overcome by emotion to the extent that he or she is incapable of thinking objectively, clearly, and acting like a civilized person.

    It seems President J Trump is running a race to the WH, without any competition. Maybe if he walks, someone will catch up?

    You are such an idiot. All these democrats are far more qualified for the White House than this bumbling, brain dead buffoon.

    It showed Bloomberg is presenting a fake resume. He went after Sanders about his number of houses, not about substance. Sanders, who's never been worth a million till now, took the bait but that was all Bloomberg had. Bloomberg was so exposed he was naked at the end of the night.

    CuriousJockAZ is wrong. If Republicans had to choose between Trump and Bloomberg, Republicans could choose Bloomberg over Trump.

    The majority of these candidates do have much more professional behaviour and actual political experience, however a matter of track record is more than likely to bite a few of them in the ass. No doubt trump has already lost on counts of unprofessional behaviour, and a track record that does not look well in the court(s) of law, including all documentation way before ever running for presidency.

    The only way to be sure of a "fair fight" in your next election, is to tighten ballot security (no voting twice, or stealing boxes), and to not go electronic again (prevent hacking delays). I'd advice this for all countires, and that the only valid candidates able to run are actually born in the country they run for.

    Question for the republicans..... If your trump claims "america first" in everything, why did he marry outside of your country twice? well as all his merchandise labels DO NOT SAY "made in america/usa"?

    I ask this not as an attack, but an actual question of "why"? If you endorce something, why go behind it's back and cheat elsewhere?

    I wonder how strong a Sanders-Biden ticket would be.

    Sanders/ Stacey Abrams
    Biden/ Kamala Harris..... If Biden did this it would show that he does not hold grudges.

    Buttigieg/ Stacey Abrams

    No competition for Trump this election.

    No Democrat Front Runner in sight.
    They are all in President Trump's revision mirror.
