Why have the Democrats Thrown The Female and Minority Candidates Under The Bus?
In recent weeks, The white male Democrat Presidential contenders have all but shut out the women and minority candidates. Biden and are now literally holding 60% of the primary vote, leaving all the rest in single digits! In a new Harris poll, Booker and Harris combined hold single digits!
The top three candidates are white men, albeit one is gay. The two women that even break into real numbers only equate for 13% of the vote together, Harris and Warren.
What happened to the party of diversity? What happened to the ‘first female president’?
I know it is early, but one would have expected a much different race at this point.
The Hill gives a breakdown:
Former Vice President Joe Biden has a 32-point lead in the Democratic presidential race in a Hill-HarrisX poll released Monday.
Biden won 46 percent in the poll compared to 14 percent for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who came in a distant second place.
Former South Bend, Ind. mayor Pete Buttigieg was in third place with 8 percent, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) with 7 percent.
Since he officially entered the race in April, Biden has seen an increase in public support and become the clear frontrunner in the race.
Polls taken since the former vice president’s official declaration have shown him receiving support in the upper 30s to lower 40s, about twice as much as Sanders, his next closest rival.
The poll was taken Friday and Saturday among 440 registered voters who identified as Democrats or independents who leaned toward the party.
California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris was fourth with 6 percent, followed by former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) with 3 percent each.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), former HUD secretary Julian Castro, former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.), Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) received between 1 and 2 percent support.
Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio), entrepreneur Andrew Yang, author Marianne Williamson, Gov. Jay Inslee (D-Washington), Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), former Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.), and Wayne Messam, the mayor of Miramar, Florida, received between 0 and 1 percent support.
No respondents expressed support for Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) and former Sen. Mike Gravel (D-Alaska). Four percent of respondents named someone else. Respondents were not given an option to state that they were unsure or would not vote in a primary or caucus.

There is a lot to be said about this early part of the horse-race. Now we all know, a LOT can happen as we go forward. But these are first picks. The top 7 candidates are reletively well known. We know where they stand.
I noticed a few items from this picture.
It seems that the moderate wing of the party is running with ol Joe. It is unheard of, in a race with this many people, for one candidate to hold half the votes.
There is a civil war going on within the Democrat party. The moderates vs the socialists. But Bernie is the obvious pick for the socialists, and he only holds now 14%, which surprises me. Bernie has a great superstructure. My only guess is that his supporters have ditched him, and scattered between some of the other very far left candidates.
So where it goes from here…is unknown territory for sure!
Can Biden hold out until the end, and keep everyone scattered so much that they cannot get traction? Is Bernie collapsing beyond hope? Will a few drop out, and make it easier for the others to challenge Biden?
We will see!
But for sure, right now. the bulk of the party of diversity is steeling on old white men!
