You'll soon realize that this is going to become a race between Warren and Yang. #Yang2020 is the right choice for the country+world going into 2021++ I don't know why you bother discussing the likes of Klobuchar/Castro/Bennett/Booker/etc. sooooo much more than Yang. Just look at the Google Trends data and compare all-candidate events data (e.g. Iowa Soapbox) for crying out loud! Yang is absolutely dominating!!!! It's a no contest. Yes... it needs to translate to votes... but with these numbers it's highly likely that he's going to get massive support at the ballot box. Y'all are numbers people at 538 I thought?!? ....also, don't call him a "weirdo" - talking to you Claire. #HumanityFirst and #MathWINS

I can't believe I heard the words, "what if Bernie had won primary and lost the general?"... yeah and what if your mother was your uncle's colon? Sanders would have won by eighty electoral college votes last time, maybe thirty or forty this time. Wake up.

You guys are missing so much of the story. Look beyond the polls - web-based indicators point to Andrew Yang dominating this thing. Realize that you are stuck in a bubble with your analyses! #Yang2020

with all the respect to Biden en Sanders but they are much too old. No democrat above 50 has been elected since Carter

note to progressives: do not refer to cowardly conservatism as "realistic" if you want progress.

This podcast interview screams Andrew Yang. As she mentioned Obama, it looks like Yang has similarly gone against conventional grassroots methods, and it shows in his massive support across the spectrum. It’s a shame that not many folks heard of Yang yet, even though he is in 6th place. Ahead of Beto,Gillibrand,...

When will you be willing to admit that even the minorities preferred Trump in 2016? When will you cease your incessant attempt to describe his popularity in terms of racism and simply look at the fact all of them not just the ones you want to look at? Finally, the end what will you do when having finally changed the Cosmetic appearance of the United States to a blend of colors that more suits your sensibilities you find that irrationally according to your standards a large number of people are still voting against your socialist ideas?

Yang is not playing identity politics. He will be able to build the broadest coalition of anyone in this democratic field.

Tech/Automation is the issue that is underdiscussed. Andrew Yang is the only one who is seriously speaking about this with the priority it deserves.

what I want to know is why it looked so obvious that when Kamala spoke everyone shut up and let her but every other candidate tried the same and they all just kept talling over them. many different times it was like they were all coached to let Kamala be heard.

Robert McCarthy Am not sure what you do mean by "Is this only 5 minutes". This episode is 37:30 long. If you can only hear about 5 minutes, then please try to clear the app cache and try again. If this doesn't solve your problem, feel free to contact us again.

Medicare for all is the only option. profit health care has failed the country. I have had private healthcare my whole life and I have had better than most, it falls short in many key ways. Healthcare today for most people is tied to their employment so as soon as I change jobs I can loose my doctors. Medicare for all covers all Americans and makes healthcare a human right. People want comprehensive coverage. Private for profit healthcare is not for people it’s for profit. With the Medicare for all people can take additional insurance if they want but few will need since healthcare will work for people not for profits.
