    Default Buttigieg 2020

    Is America ready for a gay mayor of a small town to become POTUS?

    This is truly the campaign that ought to have no right to exist. But we are in strange times.

    Policy wise he's better than some of the crazier ones already in the race. But I have a hard time seeing him win the nomination.

    For how similar and crowded the field is already, I do like that he has the balls to call out people like Lewk and Pence for their hypocrisy when it comes to their "religion". It's not going to take him anywhere, but it's still nice to see.

    Of the Democratic candidates he is certainly my favorite so far.

    He's having his moment in the sun but is still polling at ~4%. He's more a media-darling than someone who has legitimate support from voters (whether he should is a separate issue). Polls at this stage of the race don't have much predictive power, but Buttigieg would need a lot of things to go his way before he has a real shot at winning.
    Hope is the denial of reality

    He's rather like Obama. Limited experience of little note, able to make people feel good about vague ideas and able to get the media to ignore rather extreme ideas (like packing the Supreme Court or abolishing the electoral college)

    That sounds more like Trump than Obama.

    Latest poll is better, 17%. Within 3% of Sanders and 4% of Biden. Outpolling everyone else.

    I would take one poll result with a grain of salt (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nation...gh_April_20190, especially when the polling agency responsible for that poll isn't exactly top notch: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/pollster-ratings/

    Three other polls have put him on 9, 7 and 9 respectively which given how many candidates there are is significant momentum and more than the 4% you quoted.

    Whether he can keep up this momentum remains to be seen but it seems from your own link that he's broken past the 4% mark already.

    The media will find a new darling. It always does. We'll see what happens to Buttigieg after that.

    First debate is in 2 months. That's when most people will start paying attention.

    Probably. Though that's what we assumed about Trump and look how that turned out.
