'  The presidential nominating process is utterly unequipped to deal with such a large field. If you were hiring someone for a vitally important job, would you begin by interviewing 10 applicants at a time, hoping that the ones with the snappiest sound bites might also be most qualified for the job? That’s the bizarre logic behind this week’s Democratic presidential debates.That abundance of candidates may seem like a good thing — democracy! — but it isn’t (remember 2016?) Donald Trump was nominated because his mainstream opponents could not knit their supporters into a majority, in effect ceding power to an intense minority within the party. His poll numbers barely cracked 35 percent through mid-March and still hadn’t reached 50 percent when the race effectively ended in early May.'

here's a fact:When an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll asked voters last year what issue would influence their vote for Congress, corruption was in a virtual tie for first place with the economy. When a recent Hart Research poll, done for the Center for American Progress Action Fund, asked people to name their biggest concerns with the federal government, corruption came out on top, with more than 50 percent of both Republicans and Democrats naming it. More specifically, respondents said that the federal government did a lot to help politicians, big corporations, the wealthy and campaign donors"

If corruption is the number one issue then it is clear why it is never addressed. Without the revenue from the corporate elite, the media (which they own) would have no profit. The talking heads -- s0-called 'punidts' only offer opinion based on what wanders through heir heads,

But, most telling, it is the total absence of this issue and the narrative of any candidate (like Warren) who addressed! YOU will never hear her.. except maybe tonight in the debate. We only hear ENDLESSLY the Biden-Trump-Pelosi narrative, and sound bites from everyone else...except her.

Why is that, when everyone I talk to, and most people who were asked in reliable polls, say they will vote for HER!

The answer: corruption rules, and the first rule is to control what the people know, and thus what they HEAR!
