Every other week we take the pulse of the budding Democratic presidential primary, and see which candidates are leading the pack within our world of party activists, and which are only pretending to compete. For the curious, here’s the previous results.
For failing to gather more than 1 percent of the vote, we have already relegated Kirsten Gillibrand, Julian Castro, and Tulsi Gabbard. Cory Booker rode his announcement to 3 percent of the vote two weeks ago, and out of relegation territory. This week’s new contestant is Gov. Jay Inslee, in case that’s your jam.
