In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Poll: Sanders Way Ahead in New Hampshire but Buttigieg Gaining

According to Emerson polling:

Day 3 of the 7 News/ Emerson College tracking poll of the New Hampshire Democratic Primary finds former Mayor Pete Buttigieg with a bounce out of Iowa as his numbers increased from 12% on Monday to 17% on Tuesday night. This separates him from the field and places him in second behind the frontrunner, Senator Bernie Sanders, whose numbers held at 32%. Former VP Joe Biden comes in third at 13%, followed by Senator Amy Klobuchar at 11%, and Senator Elizabeth Warren at 11%. No other candidate reached double digits. Data was collected February 2-4, 2020, but today’s data was collected after the Iowa Democratic Party announced the partial results of the Iowa caucus.

Biden is looking to do well in South Carolina, but losing badly in both Iowa, which it appears he has, and New Hampshire will probably end his chances. Elizabeth Warren seems to have nowhere to go at this point, since Democrats have decided Sanders is the socialist they like best.

We’ll soon be into the next phase of our Democratic primaries. The Michael Bloomberg Show begins March 3, which is Super Tuesday.
