  1. I went to Tuckers (on Vine by Findlay Market) today. Based on the conversations I overheard, it sounded like they aren't doing well. It would be an incredible shame if they closed. Don't get me wrong, OTR is great, but if they are truly on the ropes, it is still one less 'authentic' place in an increasingly curated neighborhood.
  2. Bikeways? That's interesting, but not sure where or how they plan on cutting street parking for bike lanes though
  3. I'll be interested to see how this tracks in the rust belt. In the northeast, moderate crossovers are common. In the rust belt, if people are crossing over, it's because someone who tailors their message to blue collar workers. I'd imagine Bernie will outperform over here compared to middle of the road candidates just because Trump-voting blue collar workers also like his message. It played out in MI that way in 2016 for sure.
  4. Whoever gets the plurality of primary delegates will be chosen (because of the above mentioned fear). That's probably Bernie, and if so, they will choose him. The worst thing is if it is really close, but Buttigieg/Klobuchar/Biden come out on top. The moderate that won the plurality is chosen, but due to delegate rules and how their votes are assigned, there will be a loud reaction to tiny slights (like Iowa) that hampered Bernie along the way. This will of course be megaphoned by Trump (he already alluded to Bernie getting jobbed by the DNC in his rally Monday), and ultimately there is a tear within the party.
  5. I'm 100% confident that this is temporary. Primary season is typically a race to the extremes. If it is Trump v Sanders, maybe there's some leftover leeriness, but in this case Trump and Sanders are courting very similar types of voters who don't care that he's not a mainstream Dem. If it is Trump vs any of the other candidates, people will instantly recognize the Democratic party and how similar it is to the Obama years, because Obama pitched almost all of the same policies these candidates have at some point.
  6. Biden is toast, especially if his drop in support from African Americans is as precipitous as the poll DaS posted shows.
  7. There's a house in Hartwell, Cincinnati that has a Trump flag, Trump yard sign, and Yang yard sign. I know there's definitely anti-establishment appeal there, but still an odd sight.
  8. I agree if it is any of the candidates not named Bernie. Anecdotally, I hear some of the Obama-Trump voters claiming they would vote for him over Trump. Sherrod wins on workers' rights, I have no doubt Bernie would push the same type of message (rather than, say, Green New Deal) and campaign with Sherrod in his trips here.
  9. I still find it really hard to believe that the DNC would repeat the mistakes of 2016 again. If the only takeaway from the 2016 primary was that they need to make sure they don't get caught this time, then Democrats are fighting not only a the most robust disinformation machine via the Republicans and foreign governments, but their own party's gross unethical conduct. Given the strength of that opposition, the thought that they would even flirt with repeating 2016 is a bold assumption.
  10. The anti-Bernie conspiracies have been flying all over the internet in February. Depending on who the front-runners are when the primary comes to Ohio, I very well may be voting for Mr Sanders, but the bombardment of tin-foil theories is a bad look for the campaign (whether it's his fault or not) and makes it even harder to support that team in the primary.
  11. I only saw the 2023 frequency boost. I wonder if they will go down to 45 min headways in 2020 and 30 in 2023... Or are they improving only one of the segments to 30 mins (Lockland vs Springfield Pike) in 2020 and then the other in 2023.
  12. In terms of ease of "BRT" implementation, I'd rank: 1. Reading 2. Glenway 3. Montgomery 4. Hamilton I'd put money on Reading getting the first one. I'd say its a toss-up between Glenway and Montgomery for the second line.
  13. My route (78) isn't getting reduced headways until 5 years down the road, according to the neighborhood improvements page, which means never. I would kill for Metro+ (since we aren't under consideration for BRT) on Vine/Springfield Pike, our ridership numbers warrant it.
  14. I know the Indygo Red Line was built on mostly wider roads, but did the same parking removal problem come up when they were building it out? Or were they able to keep parking and remove 1 traffic lane? I know our arterials are thankfully mostly narrow, but there's gotta be a playbook we can go off of here. We are a decade + behind on implementing "BRT."
  15. Exactly, and in this scenario where we assume Biden is toast with a 3rd or 4th place Iowa finish, the African American vote isn't just shifting over to Buttigieg as the defacto moderate candidate, it will go to the next most popular among that group, which I believe is Bernie. Buttigieg will easily lose the nomination because of his lack of connection with those voters.
