Do you think the Democrat strategy of spamming Women candidates increases chances of the first Women President or lessens it?

So with 6 female candidates you'd think we would have a range of platforms but that's not the case. What's actually happening is that the statements from the candidates themselves, along with how early media has reported them, they are being pushed as "it's their turn" and that we should be voting on these candidates because they are women and not for an real platforms.

Only 2 of the 6 are actively trying to scramble to create a place holder platform just to stand out since all 6 are basically just announcing they support the latest fringe or socialist trends from medicare for all, to running as the "anti-trump", or certain social issues, but generally have not been promoting even a fraction of a platform.

What's more is the media is well aware of this as well as non-journalist interviews, and it's expected that the chance of a female President will increase just because women are running as women (and an option to vote "against" Trump) and not really much else which I personally believe is a mistake.

But what's your opinion on this issue? Do you believe that these candidates running on the "it's our turn we are women) Identity platform is enough and spamming a high number of female candidates INCREASES the chances of a women president or do you think this attitude DECREASES the chances of the first female president?

Well, the chances of a woman becoming President are undoubtedly increased as more women run for President. Holy shit at this thread and the poll responses so far.

What's actually happening is that the statements from the candidates themselves, along with how early media has reported them, they are being pushed as "it's their turn" and that we should be voting on these candidates because they are women and not for an real platforms.
Any examples?

For the most part the DNC lineup looks like mass produced, focus group approved, generic candidates action figures, all with the same interchangeable DNC approved platform accessory (which is fair weather progressive megaphone and a neoliberal anti-populism heart). You have Light skinned black woman. Light skinned black man. Hispanic man. Asian Man. Old White Man. Basic White Bitch. Basic White Bitch #2. Bald White Man. Oprah's spirit animal. And Pocahontas with the extra "awkward beer and DNA kit accessories".

I really don't care about the gender of the candidate, but I do care about their platform. They have one candidate who is female who I think would make a great president, but the party hates her. And she deviates from the approved platform too much.

"Spamming"?

These candidates decide to run, they are not picked by a secret committee.

So if more women jump into the process by pure math it increases the chance of a woman being the chosen candidate. That being said I'm hoping Biden takes the nomination and owns Trump.

Demographic replacement will likely ensure a Democrat win in 2020, with nothing but Democrat wins from them on until the US crumbles into another third world shithole. When you import tens of millions of people from socialist countries, tell them it wasn't actually socialism's fault that their socialist shithole was a socialist shithole, and then have every single media outlet in the country paint anybody who doesn't support socialism as a 'far right white supremacist neo-nazi who should be attacked in the streets,' well, to paraphrase George Carlin - Think of a person with average intelligence. Now realize half of the people are dumber that than stupid motherfucker.

We have an Asian? I'd better start paying attention.

Incidentally, which female candidate are you down with?

I said in the other thread, Tulsi.

I would say it hurts them overall. Sure, if we ignore that this is a vote, and work pure random chance it would seem to increase the odds, but in the end it doesn't really work that way in a vote. First of all, only 1 of these women is going to matter at best, and second it splinters the support. If I like female candidate A and B gets the nomination, I'm going to lose at least some of my motivation even if I'm good with B as well. Unfortunately, primaries tend to bring out all the negativity so that makes it unlikely you'll have strong multi-candidate support that easily transfers, or even if they manage that miracle, you just end up with a watered down candidate that is palatable, but not a particular stand out.

What about that woman from Minnesota?
I don't know too much about her, to be honest. I just read about her record and I guess that she is OK... If anyone was to be running from MN it was supposed to be Franken though. At the very least she was anti TPP, which is a good thing.

I don't believe this is an actual strategy. This is more of a, "Well, fuck it. Who wants to run for President, let me see a show of hands?"

Unfortunately they need a hero but the only applicants are career politicians who have a long list of compromises in their past to get where they are.

If it seems forced, it decreases the chance.

At the end of the day it means nothing. Female rulers end up being as stereotypical as male rulers. As corrupt, murderous, expansionist, etc. for every Hitler, Augustus, Napoleon or Pol Pot I can give you a historic female carbon copy. Eg. Isabella of Castile, Elizabeth of Russia, Catherine of Britain and Ranavalona of Madagascar respectively.

Tulsi has a legit platform of opposing the wars, which also means the DNC, the MIC, and their media outlets are all trying to tear her down. The others seem to blend together to me. I could see this being a "Three Stooges all trying to fit through a door at the same time, so they all get stuck" situation.

What "democratic strategy"? The DNC would probably love for half of these people to drop out so the party could galvanise around one person.

This is just a list of politicians pursuing their own self-interest by trying to become president.

Perhaps it's noteworthy that they are women, but the truth is, women now make up a sizable proportion of Democratic Senators and Congresspeople. It would be bizarre if there weren't women running for president given the increase in women in politics.

It's tough to say. It's quite clear that the Democratic party has no other platform other than: orange man bad and identity politics. It's funny to see the division blamed on Trump when the choice is either identity politics or not.

They aren't going to win over any Republicans with this strategy. They will keep their existing bleeding hearts. Might even lose some. The only way I believe a woman candidate helps them, is to truly find the right face. I don't believe they have such a person. Each one of them digs a grave by reading the absurd scripts handed to them.
