Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Been working long hours and have missed you all. I hope you all get some chocolate and loving vibes of some kind today.


How about giving Florida some attention? Sure, it’s in the Top Three in terms of entrenched political corruption, but there are plenty of educated voters living here. T and R, LD!! 🙂


Here are some other interesting numbers from that Texas poll, which was a YouGuv poll (usually more favorable to Warren). Note that it was entirely conducted before the NH primary so no effect of the disastrous showings of Biden and Warren. Warren (69/16) and Bernie (69/19) were the most favorable followed by Biden at (62/25)

From the last poll in November
Bernie +12
Biden -1
Warren -3
Bloomberg +10
Buttigieg +1
Klobuchar +1

Beto had 14 in the November poll so it appears his support has migrated to Bernie (and possibly Bloomberg)

But when pitted against some of the top Democrats in hypothetical head-to-head contests, the president topped them all, if somewhat narrowly. Trump would beat Sanders by 2 percentage points, 47%-45%, within the poll’s margin of error. He’d beat Biden 47-43, Warren 47-44, Bloomberg 46-41, Buttigieg 47-42, and Klobuchar 46-41. Trump had 45% support against Yang’s 43%. The president, whose reelect number was under 50% in the survey, didn’t get a majority of the vote in any of the matchups, even while getting more support than each Democrat.

“The Trump trial ballots confirm what we’ve seen, that Trump is winning, but he clearly is under-performing, given the party profile in the state,” said Daron Shaw, a government professor at UT-Austin who co-directs the poll. “It is interesting when you put a flesh and blood Democrat up there, it drops that number, but here’s a Republican in a Republican state who’s not at 50%, which is a sign of weakness.”
