Story about Paradise fire. I was not aware the community was economically challenged before the fire.

Discussion in auditorium:

“What are you fighting to protect?”

Ed Markey speaking, full of accolades for AOC.

I love listening to his Boston accent.

Good line–the fossil fuel industry needs to give up some its socialism.

It’s about time someone said that very loud: The welfare paid to oil and gas companies (now to turn the faucet on the rest of the corporations).

Benny

I wonder how many in the audience knows what IMF stands for.

Benny

Wonder what the audience member said out loud that made Bernie laugh?

I liked that part a lot Benny!

I like it that Bernie isn’t the last speaker–it’s saved for AOC.

Yea, Naomi Klein is speaking to the crowd. OMG, she just hit Biden with “Middle Ground” comment.

Benny

We need to turn from a gig and dig economy to a care and repair society.

AOC has made it clear a middle ground is not good enough.

Conservatives on both sides of the aisles–good line.

Lol, AOC is giving Bernie’s stump speech.

Benny

That’s what I was thinking!

"When they say 'oh it's too much' what do they mean by that?

Is 100% clean and renewable energy too much?

is fighting for dignified jobs that pay enough people to live too much?

is proposing a solution on the scale of the climate crisis too much?" @aoc #Road2GND pic.twitter.com/IlDcVLXLWK

Latest Emerson National Poll:

Looks like the announcement bump is beginning to fade for Joe “Middle Ground” Biden. Or this might be a poll that doesn’t have all the skewed information seen in other polls, and we are finally seeing a more accurate picture. Either way, I expect Biden’s numbers to slowly and surely to sink in the coming weeks and bottom out after the first debate.

Look who Gravel is beating. Lol.

The weekly Morning Consult poll stayed pretty static this week. Nationwide Biden is at 39 (-1) and Bernie is at 19 (same). Early primary states Biden is at 42 (-2) and Bernie is at 22 (+2). Everybody else is in single digits and basically the same place from last week.

The Emerson poll above does show a bump for Biden from its previous poll last month, which had Biden at 25 and Bernie at 24. Biden is up 8 and Bernie is up 1. Biden’s increase appears to have come at the expense of the other candidates. Emerson does remain the best pollster for Bernie.
