    Most people don't want to think about politics until they have to. Sanders and Biden have name recognition. I suspect other people will rise when the actual debates near and money is spent instead of fundraised.

    Itís 100% name recognition now. Remember the vast majority of people donít pay attention until after the nomination. So at this point they havenít even started to pay attention to the fact that they arenít paying attention.

    The candidatesí only goal right now is to get the average person to say ďYeah, Iíve heard of that person.Ē It doesnít even matter how or, to some extent, if itís good or bad news that got his or her name lodged into the personís brain.

    As they whittle down from 8,304 names to three or four, thatís when you start to differentiate between the real candidates.

    That's kinda what I suspect and with Joe Biden not even announcing there just isn't much critical media focus on him.

    Around this time of the Republican cycle Jeb was polling the highest.

    Going back a ways, I think JFK didn't officially declare to early 1960. However, there were a lot less primaries back then.

    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Obviously a long shot, but was an outstanding governor during his time in Massachusetts. He would make an excellent president.

    Serious non-trolling question: Did Bernie pay his "fair share"? I know he paid what he owed but does this meet the "fair share" threshold since he was in the 1% last year?

    His income was not capital gains, so he didnít benefit from the lower rate like most 1%ers

    Man, the Bernie bros are going to be insufferable if he doesnít get the nomination. Their Facebook comments are already almost as obnoxious as Trump Turds.
