Buttigieg has surged to first place in Iowa according to a new Des Moines Register/CNN poll. He leads the pack by 9 points while Warren, Biden, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) are in a close battle for second. Despite his lead in Iowa, Buttigieg is in fourth place nationally, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average.
I very very honestly don’t get it. I just don’t. I can disagree with Warren or Bernie but Buttigieg doesn’t even merit that because I haven’t heard him utter a meaningful sentence ever. Is it because he’s young? I honestly see no other winning point about him. He’s a privileged fellow, he has no experience doing anything of interest in politics, he has no signature issue, what is it people like about him?
