Thank the Lord! Time for all those disingenuous tweeters saying Bernie isn’t against regime change wars to be quiet.

Doesn’t quite have the same ring as STFU.

Comparing Biden to Trump.

Unless candidates get 15% they will get zero delegates. Right now the polls are showing that Biden and Bernie will get almost all the delegates. Many polls show the other candidates are not over 10%. Most of the candidates will have dropped out long before Super Tuesday. I really think it’s going to be decided on the first ballot. If it’s not, it won’t be because of the Bullocks and Hickenloopers of the world are getting delegates, but because the three or four top candidates are closely matched and no one reaches 50%

I will mention this next time it comes up. Thanks.

An Emerson poll in March had Biden leading Bernie by 3

Former Vice-President Joe Biden has a slight lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders in Nevada, but no one is above 30 percent in a new poll by Change Research and shared with The Nevada Independent.

The poll was taken last week of 480 likely caucus-goers with a margin of error purported to be 4.4 percent (I’ll get to this later).

Here are the results:

Joe Biden, 29 percent
Bernie Sanders, 24 percent
Pete Buttigieg, 13 percent
Elizabeth Warren, 12 percent
Kamala Harris, 11 percent
Beto O’Rourke, 4 percent
Cory Booker, 2 percent
Everyone else is at 1 percent or 0 percent.

The minimum wage would be $33 today if it had increased as quickly as the average Wall Street bonus since 1985. Instead, millions of people are trying to survive on poverty wages, while Wall Street executives get richer.

Incidentally, if you search for the phrases “Republicans” and “come to their senses” in the Nexis news database, you get some good results, from Pelosi hoping Republicans would come to their senses about a budget standoff in 2011, to Obama hoping Republicans would come to their senses about obstructing the work of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in 2011, to Obama hoping Republicans would come to their senses about a budget standoff in 2013, to an Obama White House spokesman hoping Republicans would come to their senses about immigration in 2014, to Democratic pundits predicting that voters would come to their senses and not elect a candidate like Trump in 2016, to Obama’s CIA director hoping House Republicans would come to their senses about abetting Trump in 2018.

Said Biden on Tuesday: “I just think there is a way, and the thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House. … You will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends.” As the 2012 quote indicates, Biden has been dealing with Republican intransigence and derangement since before Trump was a major figure in the party, which one would think would indicate to him that the current president is not the sole cause of its extremism. But when bringing everyone in the country together through the sheer force of your personality is the singular theme of your campaign, I suppose you can’t let a decade or so of history get in the way.

polarbear4

Not only that, but when your personality is that of a used car salesmen….

Sorry to good people in car sales.

No worries PB as one of my sons is in that profession, but we all have come across a “shyster” sales person over the years no matter the profession.

For what its worth Bernie beats Warren over at TOP, with 59999 cast Bernie 15736, Warren 14.904 Koz foiled again.

He will still present it as a great Warren victory and evidence that Bernie is doomed since his % declined. The reality is that Warren’s preaching to the choir stance on Fox is very popular in some quarters and she received a lot of attention for that today.

I was wondering if Warren’s statements re: Fox News would have an effect (and it looks like it did?).

Certain people accuse progs of being purists, but not-prog-Dems certainly can be purists in the way they measure one’s anti-FOX, anti-Putin, anti-Trump biases.

How frequently candidates utilize demagoguery seems to matter to some. If a candidate doesn’t bash those three I mentioned sufficiently frequently that candidate is viewed with suspicion. The media doesn’t help, of course.

The thing is, those same people say they want unity, but they don’t act like they want unity.

The vast majority of both Republicans and Democrats who said they plan to vote in the 2020 presidential primary support legislation rolled out by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders last week that would cap credit-card interest rates at 15%.

Nearly 70% of Republican primary voters and 73% of Democratic primary voters said they either support or strongly support the proposal to cap rates at 15%, according to a new INSIDER poll. Just over 60% of respondents who don’t plan to vote in the 2020 presidential primaries also said they support the bill, known as the Loan Shark Prevention Act.

Just 13% of GOP primary voters were opposed to the idea, while 7% of Democratic primary voters were opposed.

She just touches on her concern over the voting machines in India, In a segment on the election going on over there now.

Two conservative former Democratic senators, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of Indiana, have launched the One Country Project, a 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization that aims to attract rural voters to the Democratic Party. However, according to Maplight’s Andrew Perez, working in partnership with The Intercept, the organization is also a “dark money” group, using the two former lawmakers to push an anti-Medicare-for-all agenda.

Perez found that “the One Country Project’s website is registered to an executive at Forbes Tate Partners, a lobbying and public relations firm founded by former Clinton administration officials.” Forbes Tate Partners is leading lobbying efforts for Partnership for America’s Health Care Future (PAHCF), which, according to Maplight, is a “health industry-backed nonprofit created to crush momentum for a comprehensive universal health care system.”

Heitkamp had previous ties to Forbes Tate Partners, hiring a subsidiary called Columbia Campaign Group for polling and media campaign consulting for her 2018 Senate bid. Her former chief of staff, Tessa Gould, is now a partner there. The Heitkamp campaign, Perez reports, paid Gould $35,000 for consulting in March, part of the over $6 million the campaign had left over from a last-minute infusion of donations after Heitkamp declined to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Heitkamp railed against Medicare-for-all in a May op-ed for The Washington Post, writing that “polling indicates that most Americans are satisfied with the health care they receive and do not want their coverage options taken away and replaced with a one-size-fits-all government program.” Both Heitkamp and Donnelly campaigned against such a proposal in their reelection bids, and both lost to Republicans.
