Buttigieg/Klobuchar dropping out and Warren staying 100% was a deal imo.

DNC is not how "black voters" are spelled.

Klobuchar and Buttigieg dropped out because it became evident that they would not win the nomination after the South Carolina primary. In addition, polls suggested that not all of Warren's supporters would just switch to Bernie had she dropped out sooner. Maybe a majority of 60% or so would have, but still not enough to stop Biden. Also, remember that Bloomberg was still in the race and almost certainly cost Biden votes on Super Tuesday.

If anyone, it was Clyburn endorsing Biden before the primary. He would have won South Carolina anyway, but his support made it such a blowout.

If they could have, they would have. That's not what happened.

After the first four states, several candidates saw the writing on the wall. They saw the Super Tuesday polling.

Klobuchar and Buttigieg dropped out because it was in their best interest for Biden to win the nomination. Staying in could result in Sanders winning a contested convention. If Sanders won the general, they would have no place in the administration. If Sanders lost, they would be blamed for four more years of Trump.

When the #Klob and Booty dropped out, the other failures like Booker and Beto quickly joined in.

It wasn't some conspiracy or coordinated effort. Its the 21st century, famous people know each other cellphones. They know how to maximize ratings.

Many suggest Obama called all them telling them to drop out. Maybe he did. That still isn't a behind the scenes conspiracy. That is a former president giving advice to the next generation of leaders. Its an old geezer trying to meddle in his party's affairs. Its happened in every election.

I wish Bernie won the nomination. But more Democrats wanted Biden. I like Biden. Biden won the general. Its ok.
