Thanks for the recommendation. That does sound like a good one.

Overpopulation does appear to be a serious problem, not just here but globally. Something tells me that proposals to eliminate half the population won't go over very well (except on Twitter).

And the politicians who decide that the pickup truck really doesn't have to meet the same fuel efficiency standards as other vehicles because requiring it to do so might harm the interests of the automaker who donates to their campaign.

That's an interesting theory. I suspect there might be a simpler explanation in that many voters think Biden will have a better chance of beating Trump than Sanders would.

I like both of them too. There are at least a few others I like, but I am still trying to learn more about them.

Yeah, I'd consider that progress if it is genuine. I think the issue was not being sure it was genuine.

Yes, there's no question that it is still quite early and much could change. We have already seen some changes. If I remember correctly, Gillibrand was polling around 1-2% in one of the last large polls and now appears to be closer to 10%. While I still don't see her catching fire, that does seem like a big jump.

Good points. Of course, I bet we both know people who buy vehicles, computers, and whatever else without putting any thought into it. In some ways, I find this even stranger than not putting much thought into god-belief. It helps me remember that some people find thinking difficult or aversive. I suppose that is good news for religion.
