You only need 12,500 voters to swing.

Yes you are right. Now if the kool-aid drinkers would only do the same.

There are many on the right who will tout this about and say how badly this reflects on the Dems without taking pause to realize that it is just as much about the Rs and anyone else who "chooses a team"

Breaking Up With The Democratic Party

I thought more highly of him prior to reading this. I didn't realize how much of a connected party person he was (silly me, should have realized that by the fact he got so far. After all DJT is one of a kind). He reminds me of another businessman turned politician who always remained a Democrat in heart but switched registrations, first to R and then to I so he can get elected mayor of NYC. I voted for that guy mostly as I saw him as an alternative to a worse choice, then again because I felt he was a good manager, despite not liking some of what he did, but during his last term he turned into a left-wing dictator.

I don't drink the Kool-aid to believe that Andrew Yang had any change of heart or mind. This is nothing more than a strategic move (just like Bloomberg's switches were).

Do you think he becomes totally irrelevant with this move ?

IDK. Bloomberg didn't become irrelevant with his party switch, but that was a local election, and very different.

I am not a political analyst, and wouldn't speculate on this.

Maybe he becomes relevant in stealing R votes thereby enabling even a weak D to win the election. I don't put anything beyond any politician, especially one that seems well connected to the party machine.

Bloomberg also had billions to waste & IIRC was pretty powerful by that point.

I am talking about his first run for NYC mayor. He couldn't run on the D ticket so he switched parties.
