Well, there you go. The hammers and sickles are out as the two lefists in the Democratic field try to slay each other.
Warren is desperate, given that Sanders is pulling away from her in polls as the Democratic base goes with the tried-and-true lefty.
Earlier today, Sanders denied a report that he had told Warren that a woman could not beat President Trump. Now Warren herself is saying, while of course trying to pretend she wants to be nice.
From a statement by Warren:
Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals: beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone.
Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed. I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.
We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people.
The former vice president leads Trump by 5 percentage points, 41 percent to 36 percent, among 1,997 registered voters in a new Morning Consult/Politico poll testing the hypothetical Election Day matchup — roughly half the 11-point advantage he enjoyed in a June survey conducted ahead of the Democratic Party’s first debates. Both surveys have a 2-point margin of error.
While Trump cut into Biden’s edge with several demographic groups between the two surveys, some of the president’s biggest gains came among women and the youngest voters, two groups that are typically seen as some of his weakest voting blocs. Trump trails Biden by 11 points among women in the latest poll, conducted Oct. 25-28, compared with a 20-point gap in June.
And while he still lags 14 points behind Biden among voters ages 18 to 29, that’s a significant improvement on the 28-point deficit he faced in June. Independents are also falling in line with the incumbent: Biden’s 1-point lead among those voters is down from an 11-point edge in June.
Biden is not the only Democratic candidate to see his head-to-head advantage over Trump dwindle — and his numbers against the president still compare favorably with his competitors. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) only leads Trump by 2 points in the latest poll, down 8 points since June.
Despite all the impeachment excitement, Trump’s average rating in polls has remained steady, at between 42 and 44 percent.
Well, that’s the end of that. Nobody is going to be elected president who had a cardiac incident and needed heart surgery during the campaign.
Must be all that fatty food Elizabeth Warren has been cooking for him . . .
I’m sure he will continue campaigning, but it’s over. And, in fact, it already was pretty much over for him. Warren was stealing his voters on the left, although Sanders did still have a lot of them and is raising lots of money.
To whom will he give his money and support when he leaves the trail? That’s the question. Bernie could be the kingmaker.
From a statement by Sanders campaign senior advisor Jeff Weaver.
During a campaign event yesterday evening, Sen. Sanders experienced some chest discomfort. Following medical evaluation and testing he was found to have a blockage in one artery and two stents were successfully inserted. Sen. Sanders is conversing and in good spirits. He will be resting up over the next few days. We are canceling his events and appearances until further notice, and we will continue to provide appropriate updates.
And BTW MSM. It’s not chest “discomfort.” It’s pain.
Uh, that seems to be what’s going on here. Have a listen.
He’s asked about, you know, what liberals have been talking about for at least half a century, about the planet not being able to support population growth. And specifically, whether “empowering women and educating everyone about the need to curb population growth ” should be “a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe.”
So Bernie dives right in, talking about the need for abortions, particularly in poor countries. I’m sorry not abortion, “women’s right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.” My bad.
Have a listen. It used to be abortion should be “legal, safe, and rare.” Now it’s a strategy to combat climate change.
Democratic voters, do you understand that this person is basically a communist? How does someone like this get so close to the presidency? I don’t think he’ll get the nomination but, you know, he could. From the Washington Examiner: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the Chinese government’s anti-poverty programs in an answer to a question… Continue Reading
Where is the press pointing out that this is nuts? Well, they can’t, because it comports with political correctness. And also, they think he is factually correct. I gather our chief concern with nuclear war must be that it could accelerate global warming. I mean, the nuclear clouds and all the debris floating above could… Continue Reading
