It is not too often that you have a candidate among the leaders of the race call it quits, but that is exactly what is happening.

Numerous outlets are now reporting that the former Mayor of South Bend, IN, Pete Buttigieg, is going to drop out of the race.

Struggling in Polls

If you have read my predictions on this, they have been dead on.

We fully expected Buttigieg to win or finish high in Iowa and New Hampshire, then drop right off the radar once more diverse states starting to come into play.

Buttigieg was clearly hoping those first two showings would elevate him in upcoming states, including Super Tuesday states, but that has not happened.

Buttigieg has bombed in both Nevada and South Carolina and Super Tuesday does not look very good, which is no doubt why Buttigieg is dropping out.

Current polls do not show any reason for Buttigieg to continue, as he is not above the threshold in any state on Super Tuesday.

The Smart Move

Honestly, we actually have to respect Buttigieg for pulling the plug this early.

There are people polling much worse than he is that are refusing to drop out and it is hurting the effort to take Sanders out of the running.

It is a fairly safe assumption that whatever support Buttigieg has will go to either Biden or Bloomberg.

I would expect Buttigieg to come forward very soon to direct his supporters where to take their votes and if that happens, expect him to throw his support behind Biden.

I say Biden because Buttigieg does not like Bloomberg at all and it is unlikely he would waste his support on someone like Warren or Klobuchar that have no chance in this race.

Backing Biden will help push the former VP in these primaries closer to Sanders and if Biden wins, it could land Buttigieg in a prominent role in a possible Biden administration.

This just made Super Tuesday a LOT more interesting.

  1. Probably for the best. Last time I had to deal directly with a self-labelled Christian homosexual was in 1968 while commanding a mechanized infantry company in Vietnam. We had been in contact (exchanging small arms and mortar fire) virtually all day with the North Vietnamese. While setting up a position for the night I was told that one of my soldiers had refused his sergeant’s orders to take his turn on a listening post and was pointing his weapon at the sergeant. When I approached the man he was pointing his weapon at any/every one and when I asked him what was his problem he starting ranting that he had talked to Jesus and Jesus had told him that he was not to fight any more and he needed to admit that he was a homosexual. While he was ranting I got close enough to take his weapon from him. I then asked his sergeant if he was sure the soldier had all the gear he needed to stand his post and that all of the same was operational. When the sergeant answered in the positive I directed him to re-order the soldier to take his post. When he refused the sergeant’s order I order him to be secured inside on one of our tracks. I then advised him of his rights and charged him with three violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ): 1). Failure to go forward, 2). Misconduct before the enemy, and 3). Conduct unbecoming. The soldier was convicted of all of the charges plus two more and got four years @ Fort Leavenworth. Contrary to what was reported in the Overseas Weekly, I did not order him to stand his post and to take Jesus with him! Contrary to Mayor Pete’s position, my bible tells me that Jesus might just agree with my actions! Soldier/Cop/Grunt, Retired

  2. Doesn’t matter if Buttsore is there or not , the dems still have the rest of the America-destroying career criminals for “candidates”
