    this guy does not have a chance against trump. if this guy gets the nomination, might as well give trump the keys to the white house again.

    This guy has an incredibly relatable way of communicating for me. I find he's got a good blend of inspiring and pragmatic. From a values/norms perspective, I think he's hitting a sweet spot just left of center which could leave him with a strong voting cohort if he plays his cards right. Whoever's able to activate the silent majority in that section of the spectrum, I think could take it.

    Can't wait for Trump to loose it and resort to some hoomophobic slur.
    The man they call my enemy. I've seen his eyes, he looks just like me - A mirror...
  • So what's everyone's take now that he's been in the spotlight for a minute!?

    My take...I don’t agree with everything he says or wants, but the guy is smart and articulate. He is terrific in my opinion.

    If Pete was president right now, the response to the shootings would be totally different. Instead of divisiveness and photo ops, you’d have a guy that has experienced gun fights helping people and working on preventative measures.

    I haven't paid close attention.  I think he is a very practical person that would take an analytical approach to decision making.   I think this is outstanding.   I think what he needs to do better at is connecting with people like Bill Clinton did.  "I feel your pain" versus too robotic with answers.  I believe he totally tanked at the town hall in South Bend because he tried to approach it like a professor when there is a huge human element to it.  

    I'd vote for him though.  I don't agree 100% with any politician but I believe he is a genuine good person who cares unlike our current president.

    To me, I feel he speaks with the demeanour of someone who's been in academia for a long time. If he can modify his tone and make it more conversational and less 'prose', I think it would work magic for his campaign. God knows he's smart enough to dumb himself down if he so desires.
