Of course, I'm not a moderator, so that's just one person's opinion.
Where was the term "Superpredator" in post #293? I must have missed that.

For anyone wanting a deep dive into Harris' views on prostitution, a new interview was published today.

I'm for Kamala Harris because while she may not stand out for any one particular quality, she's the best synthesis of desirable qualities overall. She has charisma, guts, smarts, strong progressive positions tempered with moderation, and she's a woman. Yes, I care about electing women and I won't apologize for that. Regardless, I'll vote for whoever gets the Dem nomination.

Most recent Emerson Nevada poll is not good news for Harris.

The path for Harris depends on her doing well in next door Nevada where she has spent a lot of time in the past and is already a pretty well known entity. This is the state that she has to count on being in the bag. Being behind Biden (26%) and Sanders (23%) respectively at this point is one thing. Not getting into double digits and being behind both Warren and O'Rourke with Buttigieg nipping up from below, is another.

Not good.

She's got work to do, lots of work to do ...

Harris isn't even polling well in CA. From the crosstabs page 24:

Q22. Do you think
Kamala Harris
should run for US
President in 2020, or
not?
For all adults, 40% said yes. 45% said no.

Too bad to. I'd like to see her get crushed.

Yeah not sure how to interpret that in regards to the D primary (and in the general she'd take the state) In the likely voter crosstabs Ds say yes 56 to 35% but even that does not translate to whether or not they'd vote for her vs any specific someone else.

Would you support Trump (who's bragged about violating the consent of women on multiple occasions, etc.) over Harris?

Amy Klobuchar is the female candidate I think might be most electable, but Cory Booker has promised(?) to pick a female as his VP running mate. Good enough?

Would you support Biden, who has been credidlbly accused of violating the consent of women? What if it were Biden vs Trump?

I find your fixation on this, and in particular the way you have to word it because it's so weak of a criticism compared to so many other things, especially tiresome. And on top of that, this thread is about Harris.

In any event, I didn't vote for Trump last time, and wouldn't in 2020. I'm in CA so it doesn't matter anyways. I am glad Trump is president rather than Clinton. I don't support either. Same calculus for Trump vs Harris.

Based on the allegation and response so far, I'd support Biden, who has not been credibly accused of sexual assault (but rather violating someone's personal space in a non-sexual way), and who hasn't bragged about committing sexual assault and violating the consent of women and girls. But I'm not sure if I'd support Biden over any of the other Democratic candidates, since it is indeed a serious and credible allegation of violating someone's consent for their personal space.

That you find it "so weak of a criticism" is extremely troubling to me, and IMO representative of how tolerant so much of our country is of sexual assault/harrasment/violating consent.

I know this is a Harris thread, but this is incomprehensible to me.

Harris's excellent line of questioning yesterday, which induced stammering nonsense from Bill Barr, boosts Harris a bit in my thinking for who I want to win the 2020 nomination.

It makes one suspect that she has some real potential to break out during debates.

I don't know anything about her, really. All I know is that I just watched her expose Barr as a blubbering fool. Still way early in the game, so I'd like her to get a boost from that.
