I'm not quite sure what scares the DNC more, Bernie winning the nomination and not being electable or Bernie winning the nomination and the election. I'm not sure he can win but he has my vote in the Michigan primary.

If he does win the nomination Bloomberg will go rogue and run as an independent. I honestly think a future with Bernie as president will harm him more than Trump's China escapades. That's the reason Bloomberg is in the race to begin with.

As much as i would love to vote for you two, i've got to vote for Bernie to make sure Joe Biden doesn't get the nominee. As vice president of Barack Obama, Joe's partially responsible for many of Trump's actions such as the Muslim ban and ICE detention camps and Obama performed hundreds of drone strikes without congressional approval, some even killing civilians, whereas Trump only performed one.

So as much as i'd love to vote Apple/Holey, you guys aren't doing well in the polls and i've got to make sure we don't have another mockery of an election like we did in 2016.

Excuse you DO, I can show you a website where Apple/Holey2020 is polling very well and is in fact far in the lead.

 

While I do not recommend spoiling your ballot, I do think if you really hate everyone that Apple/Holey is a reasonable alternative.

For president I'll be voting Bernie tomorrow

As far as locally I might vote HoleyApple 2020. I've only been in this state since August (apart from when I was a baby), so I don't have much of a feel for the candidates as I did in my old state (lived there 27 out 29 years). I think a lot of the local Republicans use scare tactics. The Democratic guy for senator is eh alright. Nothing to write home about.

I'm underage and don't agree with either party, but my vote goes to Apple/Holey2020 regardless. john-lennon-salute_gif

I would make a campaign button, but I can't figure out how to insert screenshots onto the forum. Oh well. a-hard-days-night-paul-11

*insert screenshot of campaign button with Holey/Apple for President 2020 written on it*

I'll honest to god make a Holey/Apple2020 button and wear it around IRL. Nobody will get it outside of this forum but maybe after some thorough and effective campaigning I'll be able to inform them of Holey/Apple's very dedicated causejohn-lennon-salute_gif

But for real though I'm pissed that I miss being able to vote in the 2020 election by one year. If I could vote, I would probably vote for Bernie, since he's the candidate who I agree with most of the time....

Maybe the other ones could have Holey/Apple's 2020 inside the apple.

The Apple/Holey group would like to thank all supporters and donators in their generous help so far. We’re very proud to be representing Beatles enthusiasts, fossil fuel fans and depriving children of nutrition. What is not to love?

 

Now for all of those who can vote, go out and vote today you crazy kids.

As an unafilliated voter who's extremely disenchanted with the left wing at the moment, I've honestly been living for the DNC drama (with popcorn) a-hard-days-night-john-6 although way down inside* I devoutly wish we had a functioning left wing again, because the eagle needs two strong wings to fly and all that. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I can’t vote but if I could I’d vote for HoleyApple.* Also, now that both Buttigieg and Klobuchar are out, I have a feeling Biden will jump in the polls. Myeh. Fingers crossed that either Warren or Bernie will win California.

*actually I’d vote for Warren but HoleyApple would be beautiful

It's quite hilarious how much traction #HoleyApple2020 has got... if we actually ran in the caucuses we'd probably get a good showing of votes, purely because of everyone's lack of interest in the other candidates!

I'm all set for today, I've got 2 different sources of live results ready and open for when the first polls close in just over an hour... 

Fiddy - re. Biden, I read a very, very long article last night about why he probably won't do terribly well today, at least not any better than any of the polls are suggesting - the demographics he does well in aren't really distributed very well in the 14 states today, whereas Bernie's support is much more broad. So long story short, as long as there isn't an across the board swing to Biden, Sanders looks like he'll probably win today.

Warren is a chronic liar. More importantly, she's doing pretty poorly and should already have left the race. Bernie will almost definitely win California, but whether the DNC will let him win the nomination is another matter.

In other news, I just got back from voting. a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-john-1a-hard-days-night-john-1

Yeah, the DNC are shitting their pants about Bernie - especially as California has 415 delegates, and he's polling really well there, so he's got a good advantage there.

I think we also wouldn't behave like children which so many candidates do. I know it's to appeal to the more stupid parts of the population but I'd say we'd attract a lot of the 'alternative vote'. I don't know how much alternate voters would pay to fund our campaign but I'd love to get somewhere close to the end of the caucuses and with whatever money we'd have left over just throw a big party for the people who supported us.

Like I don't have my fiscal policy for the US set out but you know give me 2 days and I'll give you a nice budget- the areas I care the most about are health, education and the environment (obviously considering the US I have to put defense in there too), so I can imagine a lot of people would absolutely hate me. I wouldn't give handouts, I just wouldn't let people go bankrupt because they can't pay for their medical bills is all, (*looks at Germany and sighs lovingly*). If we could take all the nice bits and cut away the bureaucracy crap, we'd have the US running somewhat smoothly. It's so absolutely bloody massive that it'll never be good for everyone but we can try and give people a decent start in life and what they make of it past the age of 18 is their choice. 

I had fun talking to a girl from Mississippi when I was in Germany and she was like "yeah, our high schools are atrocious. I went into college out of state feeling very unprepared and stunned by the standard that was expected of me", and for someone who wanted to be a German teacher in Mississippi with her standard of German....I pray for the future German students in Mississippi, no offense meant to her.

 

But yeah, #HoleyApple2020!

 

Or we can completely forget about health, education, environment and defense and campaign for:

FREE BASEBALL CAPS AND 6 FREE BEERS/8 FREE SODAS ON THE 4TH OF JULY!!!

 

I think we'd be onto a winner.

Also if running on that policy, I insist I wear a cowboy hate in all debates. Yeehaw!

I like the free baseball caps and beverages policy. That's a winner. Also we do we need a budget? Surely we just wing it and hope we come in under budget (which we will because we won't spend 693 billion dollars on defence like Trump did last year...)

Tried to vote Holey/Apple, but there was no write in section. I guess I could have wrote it in a blank area of the sheet. ahdn_george_01

If Bernie don't win I'll go with Holey/Apple 2020! Better candidate than all of the ass clowns up there. I am still pissed about 2016. Not just about Trump, but what Hilary did to Bernie!
