Another Democrat Bites The Dust After New Hampshire Results
Now we have finally come to the time period of the election cycle where we start seeing candidates drop like flies.
Before the results were even all the way announced, Andrew Yang decided to throw in the towel and end his campaign for the 2020 election.
“I am a numbers guy,” Yang told The Washington Post. “In most of these [upcoming] states, I’m not going to be at a threshold where I get delegates, which makes sticking around not necessarily helpful or productive in terms of furthering the goals of this campaign.”
“If I become persuaded that there’s a particular candidate that gives us a superior chance of beating Donald Trump, and I think it’s important to make that opinion known, then I would consider it for sure. Anyone with a crystal ball would have regarded Iowa as a bit of a sinkhole. If we could do it over again, of course, we would not have sunk so much energy and time and resources in Iowa. We would have been fighting it out here in New Hampshire. And then we probably would have been on the air in Nevada or South Carolina.”
Yang added, “I’m not someone who wants to take people’s donations, support, time and dedication if I don’t think we have a chance to win or advance our goals in the right direction.”
It was the right call because he stood no chance.
If Yang were to have won the nomination and ultimately went on to beat President Trump, we would have each been given an additional $1000 per month.
Elizabeth Warren, after hearing the idea and how many people supported it on the left said that she wouldn’t rule out the idea herself. However, based on the results of Iowa and now New Hampshire, it doesn’t look like she’s going to be winning either.
