Another poll in a swing state in which Bernie is the only one beating Trump

wi62

referring back to the poll on the last thread: Since November, support among Wisconsin’s Democratic voters for Sanders has grown from 17% to 29%, while support for Biden has fallen from 30% to 15%.

Krystal and Saagar: Superdelegates admit flagrant plan to take the nomination from Bernie

I was just thinking that.

All this talk of a brokered convention will probably just result in turning Bernie supporters out.

But it didn’t occur to me that it could actually dampen turnout of establishment voters.

It sounds like a winning combination.

Right now is when Bernie voters need to be fired up and I don’t know how many are really hearing this yet.

Pelosi is a millionairess. She doesn’t half to genuflect for her healthcare like the rest of us. She can also shove it while she’s at it.

This C rated poll is better than the rest but does have a bias to progressive candidates

Biden +5 since poll two weeks ago
Bernie +1
Steyer -4
Warren +3
Buttigieg -4

The latest Post and Courier-Change Research poll has Biden’s lead at just four percentage points. He received 28 percent to Sanders’ 24 percent and Steyer’s 16 percent. Warren followed at 12 percent and Buttigieg at 11 percent.

The snake emoji used by humphrey to describe Liz fits her. She lies and has never stopped being a GOPuke.

Seems odd

Not terribly surprising, Yang strikes me as a grifter who seemed to be in the race to promote himself. He’s probably going to run the numbers, but he’s young and jumping to Bloomberg’s sinking ship could damage his reputation.

I actually wish that Bernie would release that info, especially if it’s ok.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/27/politics/michael-bloomberg-heart-health/index.html

Michael Bloomberg’s campaign disclosed new information on Thursday about the health of the presidential candidate’s heart, and called on Bernie Sanders, who suffered a heart attack last year, to release the same data — a clear attempt to bring the issue of the Democratic frontrunner’s health to the forefront in the 2020 race for the White House.

Bloomberg’s last annual health exam was in July and included cardiac stress testing and a stress echocardiogram, according to a letter from Dr. Stephen Sisson at Johns Hopkins University that the Bloomberg campaign shared with CNN. According to Sisson, Bloomberg’s left ventricular ejection fraction was “normal” at 60-65%; his left ventricular cavity size and left ventricular function were also deemed “normal”; and his exercise capacity was described as “excellent.”

Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser said in a separate statement to CNN that Sanders should release the same left ventricular ejection fraction data.

“Releasing this single scientific number about heart health could start to put to rest any concerns about Senator Sanders’ secrecy about his recent heart attack,” Loeser said. “Mike Bloomberg’s doctor shared Mike’s number. Will Senator Sanders ask his doctor to do the same?”

“The letters that we’ve released are very thorough,” Sanders communications director Mike Casca told CNN in response to the Bloomberg campaign’s statement, referring to doctors’ letters the Sanders campaign has previously released about the senator’s health.

The “ejection fraction” is a percentage figure that measures “how much blood the left ventricle pumps out with each contraction” and a normal heart’s ejection fraction is between 50 and 70 percent, according to the American Heart Association. CNN chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said the ejection fraction “is the single best test of the overall strength of the heart and how well the heart is pumping blood to the rest of the body.”

In late December, the Sanders’ campaign released three letters from physicians attesting to his good health.

The release included results of a graded exercise treadmill examination, which showed that Sanders performed well in without any evidence of reduce blood flow to the heart. The letters also stated Sanders no longer is in need of several heart medications he was taking shortly after the heart attack.

Bloomberg on heart meds? Bernie is keeping a physical campaign schedule while Mikey barely bothers.

Actually those age numbers aren’t so far off. The 2016 exits were probably around 46 18/49 and 54 50+. Can’t tell exactly because they are not broken down the same way in the exits.

Agreed that this poll should be used as the base.

If creepy Joe does not win by the margin that he had for the last 6 months it should be considered a failure. That is not how the MSM will spin it.
