Joe Biden overperformed in South Carolina, and that has led both Steyer and now Buttigieg to drop out of the race for president.
Steyer never had a shot, and while Buttigieg did, briefly, his polling everywhere and his weak performance with African-American voters doomed him. I liked him a lot and I admire him; I just think it is not his time.
I also think he really wants to help ensure that the Democratic presidential nominee is a Democrat. We will see what these developments have on the state of the race, which will hit a critical juncture after (Super) Tuesday.
