It could be a simple situation of playing fast and loose due to politics, or it could be trying to subtly deceive South Carolina black voters whose support Mayor Buttigieg is sorely lacking.

I saw my first Mayor Pete bumper sticker/sign yesterday. Noticing more Yang Gang as well. Still have yet to see a Biden sticker/sign anywhere.

Mayor Pete has no chance of securing the Democratic nomination.

Which makes this thread completely pointless.

And considering the bonehead that posted it, this comes as no surprise.

"Mayor Pete has no chance of securing the Democratic nomination."

Empirically false. Right now he has a low chance of securing the Democratic nomination, but so do they all. He's currently the third mostly likely to get the nomination, according to the betting odds on RealClearPolitics' average.

But evidentiary true.

Pretty sure someone on Pete's campaign staff intentionally screwed up. Wonder why. Did they think they'd get away with it?

I do agree. Pete doesn't have a good shot at the presidency. America has become a lot more tolerant of homosexuality. But there's still a lot of homophobia in this nation.

What I really enjoyed about the article was reading the support for Bernie Sanders.

Also. No Democratic is winning South Carolina, or any of the southern states, in the general election.

Yes. Thanks for the clarification, Captain Obvious.

Bernie blindness has been used by the MSM to prop up Mayor Pete since the beginning. It's no surprise that he'd eventually engage in a little himself.

Agreed.

It's not just Pete, but Biden and Harris too.

One thing that I have not been able to find is any polling on how he matches up with Trump in Indiana. If he cannot win in his own home state, then you're probably right.

You kinda skipped my justification for my statement.

But. Okay.

Find a poll.

I doubt it. They know he's white and has JUST NOW made himself known to the Black community ASKing FOR THEIR VOTE.

Nothing more needs to be said.

But oh yeah, I forgot. The white polls.

And now it looks like he puts a bogus "Endorsed by fellow Blacks" plan and we find out he has no such endorsement.

Let the chips fall where they may.

If Bernie people pulled a trick like this their wouldd be demands for Bernie to drop out

Well no "no such endorsement", 42% of the, 400 people he claimed were black, and endorsing him, were actually Caucasian.

I change my comment ...

He would find some support in Bloomington and Indy - outside of that, his brand of politics is not popular. He had a big problem with black voters - and Dems can't win without high turnout and ~90% support. I have been saying this since that douche announced he was running.

Story not even mentioned on morning Joe.

"establishment" Candidate.

Maybe one of the other candidates will call him out about it during the next debate. It will be tricky to do so, but maybe someone will.

The Democratic nominee does, however, need black voters to come out and vote in places like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

WaPo has picked up the story:

Sorry, cut off the end of the headline:

The photo was taken in Kenya

Looks like Buttigeek needs some lessons in pandering to minorities from Abuela Rodham. Maybe he can start carrying an "Ebony" totebag.
