Gilbakka, I will let Baseman take up your point later. But for now, base on your comment above, regardless of Patterson, the PPP is entering the election for the sake of an election. I don't see a winning strategy and the PPP know they are not going to win. Late 2019, U.S. will be giving out thousands of visas again. From now until 2020, another 5000 PPP voters may be dead. Little by little the PPP base is shrinking.
You are beating a dead horse.
