Voting Mentality

Please help me understand peoples mentality when they have a candidate they would like to vote for and for them to win, but instead of voting for them they vote for someone else who they think is more likely to win and who they think most other people will vote for also. If everyone thinks like that then there is no hope to ever get less popular candidates to win. To me this kind of thinking makes no sense, it is similar to the rationale of how stock markets work, on faith. Even if you want to invest, if you think others will not invest then you won't either. What do you think can be done about this?

An Important House Chair Position we need to secure after the 2020 and/or 2022 elections

It is The Chair of the House Democratic Caucus It is the 4th most powerful Democrat position in the House. The seat was Joe Crowley's seat whom the media speculated was the most likely Pelosi successor until he was out primaried by AOC and robbed him of succeeding her as Speaker of the House after the 2018 midterms or the 2020s. Right now the position is being led by Hakeem Jefferies who is a Pro-AIPAC and Corporate Sellout Democrat. In 2018 the Progressive Barbara Lee lost a race to him to be the Chair by about 10 votes Since Hoyer and Clyburn are in their early 80s and Pelosi is likely aware of the need for younger leadership in the Democratic Party its more than likely the party will nominate someone younger to succeed her after she steps down after the 2022 midterms. Barbara Lee is in her mid 70s and i'm not sure if she plans to run again but maybe someone like maybe Mark Pocan or Primila Jaypal could run and all these new Democrats like who are out gonna be succeeding establishment hacks like Jamaal Bowman and Mondaire Jones would vote for them instead of renominating Jefferies or someone of similar policies.

Should SFP endorse Kara Eastman, the progressive Democratic Nominee for U.S. House in Nebraska’s 2nd District?

Kara Eastman has secured the Democratic nomination in NE-02 and is running to unseat Rep Don Bacon. Kara was also the nominee last time and came within 2% of unseating Bacon. This is a winnable race, especially if the progressive groups circle the wagons!

For your consideration: – Kara's Issues pageKara's AMA with SFP

So we now ask:

Should we endorse Kara Eastman for U.S. Congress?
