Does Amy Klobuchar Have a Path to the Nomination?

More than most of her Democratic rivals, even Biden, Klobuchar makes an explicit case for electability. In every speech, she talks about how Democrats need to win big in 2020. As she puts it, “I don’t want to eke out a victory at four in the morning.”
As the shortest candidate in the race (she proudly announces that at five-foot-four she is the same height as James Madison), Klobuchar revels in explaining how she would measure up to Donald Trump.
Part of it, she said in Indianola, is to ignore his publicity-hound stunts, such as “going over to see Kim Jong Un and bringing a hot dish to the dictator next door.”
Then she added a point that is both central and unique to her candidacy. “Something you might not expect,” she said, “is that you have to use humor because he’s so absurd. And he uses humor all the time—you just don’t think it’s funny. If you don’t respond in any way, you’re in trouble.”

Lets examine this chart and see if she does indeed have a path.
And if you get lost, you have to start over again.

No chance. None. Zero. Zip. Nada. And she’s not electable. More drivel from the New Republic. Wishful Vichy Dem thinking.
