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.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders applauded the Chinese government’s anti-poverty programs in an answer to a question about tensions between the country and the United States during an interview aired Tuesday.
“They’re a country that vigorously protects their own interests,” the Vermont senator said in an interview with The Hill. “But what we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership, is if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, okay? So they’ve done a lot of things for their people.”
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 trap heat on the earth’s surface. Now that’s scary!
Maybe this is Bernie’s plan: Replace the Navy with tugboats to drag the icebergs back to Greenland.
Some Republicans want Bernie Sanders to be the nominee, thinking he will be easily beatable. But what if he manages to win? We already know that weird things happen. Bernie Sanders is a hard lefty. We don’t know to what extent the extremist views he holds today are hiding even more extremist views he doesn’t… Continue Reading
So therefore, ergo, the Israelis who just elected him are a bunch of racists as well. The Israelis are surrounded by people who do not merely want their own state, but who want to destroy Israel. That’s why they have, now five times, voted in a man, Benuamin Netanyahu, with a sober view of the… Continue Reading
Many people don’t fully appreciate what’s going on here. Bernie looks sort of benign, like a cranky Jewish grandpa from Brooklyn. But what he is, is a hard-core socialist. Ironic that the media believe democracy is imperiled by Donald Trump while they think an extremist from the left who honeymooned in the Soviet Union will… Continue Reading
