    I think it'd be interesting to do one of these a month, just to see where the board lies on various candidates and how opinions shake out over time.

    I put the top Democratic candidates in alphabetical order, and included a other/third party option for additional Democrats and/or a third party candidate.

    I hope the poll stays up - I don't see why it can't - but I also don't think anybody has to justify their vote, either. We can do one of these again in September.

    Mayor Pete is the person I like the most as a candidate. Don't think he'll get the nomination, but who knows?

    I'll happily vote for any of them. Except Bernie. I'd vote for him but not enthusiastically.

    I think it's Warren's to lose. She has the easiest path to pick up votes from Biden, Harris and Bernie.

    I've figured this on my own, but also read and heard some reporting on it as well - that Dems are super focused on finding a candidate who can beat Trump, above all other concerns. In Iowa, you're not hearing about ethanol, it's how to beat Trump.

    Mayor Pete has my vote now. But I’ll vote for anyone but trump. Booker and harris i believe can lose to trump. Biden should have the best chance to beat trump. .

    Petey and Warren with 10 votes each. I’d be on board with a box of those two, either order. Although Warren is too damn old for my liking.

    I think Biden would destroy Trump in a debate, and if Trump tried that looming behind him shit, Biden would snap his ass back in line. Biden also too old for me.

    Agreed. Replacing the oldest person to become president with someone even older would be a mistake.

    Mayor Pete is against the Designated Hitter. My vote is locked up.
