https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/annexation-must-be-stopped-bernie-sanders-addresses-crowd-at-tel-aviv-rally-1.8902918

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders addressed on Saturday a joint Jewish-Arab rally in Tel Aviv against Israeli plans to annex West Bank settlements, saying that the plan “must be stopped.”

Thousands gathered at Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to participate in the protest which was originally forbidden by the police due to fears over the coronavirus.

Sanders addressed the rally via video conference, expressing his support for the protesters and condemnation of Israel’s annexation plans. The senator said that he was “heartened” to see Arabs and Jews demonstrating together.

“In these difficult days … it has never been more important to stand up for justice, and to fight for the future we all deserve,” Sanders said. “It’s up to all of us to stand up to authoritarian leaders and to build a peaceful future for every Palestinian and every Israeli.”

Sanders, who has criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s right wing policies over the years added: “The plans to annex any parts of the West Bank must be stopped. The occupation must be ended and we must work together for a future of equality and dignity for all people in Israel and Palestine,” he says.

“In the words of my friend Ayman Odeh: The only future is a shared future,” he added.

Netanyaboob is on trial right now for corruption in Israel. It’s the second time that’s happened. The first time, the Israeli people booted him out of office. This time? They are just as stupid as the dimwits here.

T and R, la58!! 😊 The tRump groupie aka Governor DeSantis has now opened the bars and attractions. There is no way we will ever know when CV actually entered the state. Probably before the start of 2020. Informed sensible people are taking precautions.

But the bulk of Biden’s work to win this group over has so far come through traditional campaign channels, which is how he’s tried to appeal to skeptical Sanders backers since the Vermont senator exited the race in April. Members of Biden’s inner circle are convinced he is in better shape with former Sanders voters than Clinton was, in large part because of how quickly the primary ended, but they have nonetheless spent more time trying to bring Sanders backers into the fold than many expected would be necessary.

This has largely involved policy outreach. Shortly after Sanders dropped out, a coalition of eight groups representing young progressives sent Biden a letter arguing that he needed to stop messaging around a return to normalcy and pushing him to make drastic policy changes toward the left on a wide range of issues.

It’s all in keeping with Sanders’s public push for Biden to focus on young voters. In the days leading up to the launch of League 46, Biden campaign officials reached out to a handful of progressive groups like the environmentally focused Sunrise Movement and the gun-safety group March for Our Lives to discuss collaborations. “The core message here is: This election is about working people, it’s about the future of the planet, as opposed to two personalities. And if we look at the race in that context, it becomes a much more exciting time for those young people,” said Jeff Weaver, the longtime Sanders adviser now running a super-PAC dedicated to getting Sanders fans behind Biden.

Biden is hoping to rely on Sanders’s direct help campaigning in the summer and fall, too, and now, said Symone Sanders (no relation to Bernie, though she worked for him in 2016), outreach to the Vermonter’s voters “is a core part of what we’re doing. But we don’t wall it off and say, ‘This is our engagement of former Bernie or former Warren voters.’”

What Democrats are still divided on is how explicit that appeal will need to be this summer and fall, especially while Biden and his operation figure out how to ramp up in-person events while remaining mindful of the pandemic. “One of the problems is many of his surrogates who are much more popular with young people cannot go out and do things they would otherwise do,” said Weaver, who helped organize Sanders’s general-election campaigning for Clinton in 2016. And that means nervous activists, strategists, and backers alike have recently been bombarding everyone in Biden’s circles with suggestions even more than usual. (“If one more donor asks me about TikTok …,” one operative working on youth turnout grumbled to me last week, his voice trailing off in frustration.)

If Byedone wants the job, he will have to get a coalition similar to BO’s 2008 voter turnout. Anything less, the orange dumbazz wins.

Benny

I don’t think his campaign has a strategy at this point. It’s in Robby Mook mode. Right now the pandemic is “helping” the campaign, but Biden will have to step up his game. He’s gotten a lot of goodwill from Jim Clyburn’s endorsement.

FNC has upped all of the Clinton/Obama/Biden foibles on its daily broadcasts. And of course, the MSDNC folks still have a job because of Trump. But what about the non-consultant classes and service workers? Meatpacking workers? etc.

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/meet-the-press/poll-trump-loses-ground-key-2016-voters-n1226971

The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds President Donald Trump in a familiar position as summer arrives, trailing by 7 points in a head-to-head matchup against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. But inside the poll are more concerning numbers for the president that suggest challenges with key voter groups.

Comparing the new survey data to the numbers from the 2016 election exit poll shows Trump has lost ground with a wide range of demographic groups measured by educational attainment, gender and race. These are numbers he’ll need to address if he wants to be re-elected.

Biden’s overall lead over Trump has been a consistent 7 points in the last two NBC News/WSJ polls. And that, in itself, is probably a concern for the Trump team.

Remember that Trump lost the popular vote in 2016, but he lost it narrowly, by about 2 points. That closeness was what allowed him to win the Electoral College vote and the White House. A popular vote loss of 7 points would make such an Electoral College win extremely unlikely in 2020.

But narrowing a 7-point deficit is not an easy task. And other numbers in the latest NBC/WSJ poll make clear just how complicated that challenge may be. Trump has lost ground with many different kinds of voters.

https://www.axios.com/michigan-poll-biden-trump-3057b663-dfef-4c97-b252-3cf8833102fb.html

Joe Biden leads President Trump in Michigan 53% to 41%, doubling his lead over the incumbent since January, according to a poll of 600 likely Michigan voters conducted by EPIC-MRA for the Detroit Free Press.

Why it matters: Michigan, which Trump won by more than 10,000 votes in 2016, is considered an important battleground state in the upcoming election.

In an earlier EPIC-MRA survey conducted in January, Michigan voters favored Biden over Trump 50% to 44%.

And of course, seldom do NBC commentators ask, “what does that say about the regular electorate in 2016. Not too crazy about Clinton?”

But in fairness, 2016 was still not totally known what would happen if Trump was POTUS. Everyone else had already seen the Clintons before.
