Following a Super Tuesday in which former Vice President Joe Biden crushed the competition, other Democrat presidential hopefuls are seriously re-evaluating their chances after dismal performances.
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who once believed he could shamelessly buy the presidential nomination, has officially bowed out of the race.
“Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason: to defeat Donald Trump — because it is clear to me that staying in would make achieving that goal more difficult.”
Bloomberg, who has been dubbed “Mini Mike” by President Trump for his diminutive stature, was one of the biggest losers of Super Tuesday. He only won the primary in American Samoa and failed in every other contest.
“After yesterday’s results,” he said in the statement, “the delegate math has become virtually impossible — and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists.”
Bloomberg is now endorsing Biden in the hopes of coalescing all establishment support around him in the hopes of preventing far-left Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from obtaining the nomination.
“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it,” Bloomberg said. “After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) may be joining Bloomberg soon and throwing in the towel on her fledgling presidential ambitions. She is doing some soul-searching, perhaps on a vision quest, after her campaign has failed to gain any momentum.
“Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward,” a campaign aide told The Hill.
Unlike Bloomberg, Warren has failed to win a single primary or caucus up to this point. She was even routed in her home state of Massachusetts. She has billed herself as a progressive alternative to Sanders, despite her extensive establishment ties.
As the field narrows, Biden’s campaign has been resurrected from the dead. He has the biggest endorsements and the delegate advantage moving forward.
“I’m here to report that we are very much alive,” Biden told a cheering crowd of supporters following his many Super Tuesday victories. “This campaign is taking off.”
Biden’s strength comes at the direct expense of Warren and Bloomberg, whose lackluster campaigns are or soon will be a forgotten footnote in the annals of U.S. history.
Hispanic Democrat Leaders in California are Desperately Calling for Kamala Harris’s Senate Seat to be Filled by a Hispanic
Democrats are Making an Attempt to Ethnically Pander
Hispanic Democrats are getting desperate. One of the major stories of 2020 was how Republicans made solid gains with Hispanics, all the way from Florida to Texas.
Curt Mills, the senior reporter at the American Conservative, pointed out how California Democrat leaders recognize the party’s underperformance with Hispanics.
Mills tweeted, “California Latino leaders — in wake of an underwhelming performance among the demographic, nationally and in the Golden State — take out full page ad in @latimes Sunday, urging Governor Newsom to pick state Secretary of State Alex Padilla to replace Kamala Harris.”

These leaders want California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill in the incoming Vice President Kamala Harris’s Senate seat. Curiously, the Biden administration nominated Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban American. Democrats likely understand their mediocre numbers with Hispanics and are doing everything possible to pander to them by rewarding them with political positions.
Democrats are perhaps becoming aware that their grip on the Hispanic vote is not as firm many experts have made it out to be. According to exit poll data coming from CNN, 65 percent of Hispanics voted for the Democrat Party, while President Donald Trump received 32 percent of the Hispanic vote. Although these numbers are within the Republican average, context is everything.
These numbers came after a four year period when pundits assured us that Donald Trump’s tough stances on immigration would completely alienate him from Hispanic voters. Some pundits even went as far as to say that the Hispanic vote would break towards the Democrats by monolithic margins, similar to the way African Americans vote for Democrats. However, this has not been the case. As Joe Biden observed, the Hispanic community is quite diverse and cannot be easily pigeonholed.
The Trump campaign recognized and targeted certain groups such as Florida Hispanics by using the current example of Venezuela’s economic failure to appeal to them. A number of Hispanics along the South Texas border also bought into Trump’s message of border security and likely understand the dangers Mexican cartels pose. For that reason, pulling the lever for Trump was not a difficult decision.
Any productive Republican outreach with Hispanics involves appeals to law and order and a focus on border security. Right now the Democrats’ woke coalition is fragile and Republicans can exploit its contradictions by appealing to populist policies that cross racial lines and expose the corruption of a ruling class that is the enemy of all Americans.
