In this special episode of the Safe Spaces Podcast our hosts venture into a field they seldom tread these days – pure politics. With 2020 being a highly contested election year it was bound to happen sooner or later, but what’s made this season’s ideological match-up so intriguing hasn’t just been the number of Democrat challengers hoping to replace President Donald Trump, but the pure ideological schism that’s emerged between the moderate and progressive leftist candidates.
The first primary/caucus states are done and done, paving the way for the first real indication of where the race is headed with Super Tuesday, 14 different states that include Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, and Democrat voters outside the country cast their ballots in the single-biggest voting day prior to the main event in November. Roughly 1/3 of all those precious delegates are up for grabs, meaning the eventual Democrat nominee is likely to emerge once the dust settles and the tallies tallied.
This time around the madness of Super Tuesday actually got started a little early, with hopefuls Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar both dropping out – and subsequently endorsing Joe Biden – hours before the first real ballots could be cast. This last-minute shocker helped propel Obama’s Vice President from potential has been to potential front-runner in less than 24 hours in a stunning turnaround many felt impossible.
So, who won, lost, and/or shocked the political punditry on Super Tuesday? Who dropped out when the numbers simply weren’t on their sides? Who should drop out? What is the world was Elizabeth Warren thinking? These questions and more are pondered as our hosts examine the remaining field of contenders and what challenges await them as Democrat voters choose their nominee.
