    The news is trying to ruin his numbers on the polls. Because he was trying to show us how Joe Biden is lying to Americans that he's the one person to beat Trump. I say no to Joe Biden

    His push on Biden was much needed, Biden not only has bad policies but also bad mental health state. We don't need a centrist Trump.

    What Castro is doing is a perfect example of reading the room and making a move to be in the good graces of the winner so you can get a cabinet position. If Harris had done that she'd still be a top tier candidate.

      @Elizabeth Medina And you're an insignificant TheXvid troll that has no legitimate standing in the realm of public discourse. You're a petty human being that skulks about progressive news channels in the hopes of engaging with others whom you have a childish disposition towards and you are absolutely incapable of anything resembling a coherent and cogent thought. In terms that a simpleton such as yourself would use, you're stupid. Good day.

    I like Castro and most of his policies, I can't find much to disagree with on Castro's policies and stances. I like his immigration and education plan, and can except his healthcare plan. But he is my 4th pick if Tulsi, Bernie or Warren don't make it.

      @City Nat Biden is gonna be the winning candidate, Bernie doesn't stand a chance because Warren and Harris and Buttigeig are so much smarter than Bernie. Bernie couldn't POSSIBLY argue with Trump. Trump would DESTROY him every time. Buttigieg could easily take on Trump and DESTROY him and so could Warren and Harris. Bernie is burned out, he shot his wad back when he was in his 50's. He can't lead our Country.

      Bob Judd Biden does not have the Latino vote. Lol 😂 And instead of calling 'Latino vote, we should call it Mexican-American, Cuban-American, etc...since we all vote very differently.
      I'm 100% Bernie Sanders or any candidate that fights for the same values.

    • Bob Judd
      Bob Judd Month ago

      Ines, you idiot. Black voters ALREADY support Biden more than any other candidate. So, who are you gonna get to change their vote already?? LOL! Biden has the black and latino vote already. So, he doesn't have to do anything to keep them following and voting for him. It's the other candidates who need to work harder for black votes. Castro is the one who needs to drop out, he just DESTROYED himself with his agism attack on Biden, which destroyed any chances he had of winning. So, at least he's out of the race.

    • MrVedude
      MrVedude Month ago

      TULSI IS WAY BETTER THAN WARREN. Remember that Warren transferred corporate money from her 2018 Senate fund, and pledged to take corporate money in the general election if the nominee. She's only not taking corporate money in the primary so she can trick voters. She'd be a president who gets nothing done for us and is beholden to her donors.

    You shouldn't be "assembling a diverse coalition" during a primary for the presidential nomination. These people should HAVE assembled a coalition already. That's why Bernie lost in 16. You should have a movement in place from the day you announce. Trump and Hillary had name recognition instead of movements when they started. Trump hijacked the right wing movement and Clinton never built one.

    CENK NAILED HIM with the question: "Do you feel you should've said something during the Obama administration when they were doing the record deportations?". If they got better with immigration, why the hell is he taking jabs at Biden? His reply is LAME. This guy's a bum.

      @chrlpolk Wrong, he got into the admin in 2014. Look how he settles down when Cenk hits him with a real question. If he is saying that the administration got better with deportation, it also means Biden probably had a hand it that as well. So, does Obama have a good heart at all times or only when Castro deems it so?

    • chrlpolk
      chrlpolk Month ago

      It started out lame, but he did bring up a good point. He didn’t join the administration until 2016. By that time policies had started changing. Prior to that, he was a vocal critic, but he wasn’t part of the administration nor an influence on policy.

      I agree. Many mexicans are Latino Supremacists. Here, in chicago they put someone down for not being mexican and they'll call us out for claiming ourselves to be Americans. They'll say shit like, " yeah, you are American with your beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair." Also, Mexican-Americans don't distinguish themselves from regular Mexicans. They are one unit. This is the reason many say that Latinos don't assimilate. It's because the largest population of Latinos are Mexican and everyone else judges the rest of us by their actions.

    Castro is the most destructive candidate, he wants to make border crossing a civil offense, basically economic migrants will come, get a court date & enter country. Then everyone will expect to get minimum wage of 15 & free health care, and liberals will keep pushing the country to more public expenditure in the name of fighting racism and atoning for white guilt.
    This guy is a danger to America

    • Adam Romanov

      City Nat I agree and apologize for my personal statement on Castro's looks, I shouldn't have said that as it can be considered racist. This guy represents the absolute worst for me in the Democratic Party, for which I have voted more for than Republican in most elections.
      Mainstreaming open border ideas under the garb of making it civil offenses would lead to absolute breakdown of America's infrastructure & social contracts
      I have nothing against other dem ideas like Medicare for all, free college, freedom dividend, etc and should be debated.

      Zeeshaan I am not a racist and appreciate & grateful for the hard work Mexicans do. But if u go to places like Oklahoma or Tennessee u will see Mexicans & Central Americans taking jobs like drywalling & welding as they work for lower wages & do not want to get unionized, they are taking away jobs which Americans want to do !! Also we can always have job visas for people with low skills and be liberal about that - not declare border crossing as civil offense like Castro wants.
      Also I proudly say that I do not want more Muslims in America - if that offends u I do not care
