If this article sends any message, it’s that Sen. Klobuchar has written off Nevada’s caucuses. This isn’t surprising, considering the fact that she turned in her worst debate performance at the worst possible time. Getting into a food fight with Pete Buttigieg made both look petulant.

The fact that Sen. Klobuchar is campaigning in Colorado, a Super Tuesday state, 2 days before the Nevada Caucuses isn’t a sign of strength. It’s proof that she’s giving up on Nevada. Caucuses take organization, something that Sen. Klobuchar doesn’t have. In New Hampshire, she had a great debate. That catapulted her to a strong third place finish. Her fundraising picked up after that debate, too.

According to RealClearPolitics averages, Sen. Klobuchar hasn’t shown any Klomentum:

The truth is that Sen. Klobuchar’s campaign is essentially dead. After Nevada’s caucuses is South Carolina’s first-in-the-South Primary. She isn’t doing well there, either:

I suspect that South Carolina will be the end of the road for Sen. Klobuchar. Based on this polling from California, I’m betting that Sen. Klobuchar’s fundraising will dry up totally before California:

California is an expensive media state so she wouldn’t be competitive there. If she’s a team player, she’ll drop out after South Carolina. In this video, Klobuchar and Buttigieg both flame out:

Both candidates came across poorly, though I thought Buttigieg came across as a snot-nosed little punk. I thought Klobuchar lost her composure but Buttigieg came across as thoroughly unlikable.
