Elizabeth Warren is in a statistical with Joe Biden’s in the latest national poll of Democratic voters, suggesting the former vice president and aspiring octogenarian’s faltering performance on the campaign trail may be catching up with him.
A new Economist/YouGov poll puts Joe at 21 percent and Liz at 20 percent nationally. Bernie is the only other candidate in double digits, with 16 percent, followed by Kamala at 8 percent. Beto has 5 percent, which means he still has a chance and which is too bad, because he is very annoying.
Cory Booker, is vies with Beto for the most annoying candidate in the field, is at 2 percent and badly needs a Spartacus moment.
Several candidates were at zero percent. You know, the ones you’d expect. Which suggests the field may be thinning soon.
Competing in the largest primary field in history, 2020 Democratic presidential contenders are affiliating with labor unions and offering lavish benefits to campaign staff to attract talent and bolster their liberal bona fides.
But those employment decisions could spell disaster, leading to profligate spending and inflexible work schedules, handing a major boost to President Trump in the 2020 general election.
Traditionally, presidential campaigns are staffed by young political junkies who operate on little sleep and almost no money, fueled by their idealistic fervor and sustained by the hope that their selfless service could eventually be rewarded with a job in the White House.
In 2020, that is changing as campaign staff demand the type of pay and benefits more associated with 9-to-5 office jobs and commutes to and from suburbia.
Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Julián Castro have all opted to allow their campaign workers to unionize. A fifth candidate, Eric Swalwell, had unionized staff affiliated with Teamsters Local 238 but dropped out, citing financial woes as one of the reasons he ended his campaign.
Even those without unionized employees are spending lavishly. Beto O’Rourke is offering a minimum starting salary for staffers in Iowa of $50,400, with regional field directors banking a minimum of $62,400
President Trump will force whoever the Democratic nominee is to either disown or if not, own, the Squad.
His bet is that not just conservatives, but average Americans are going to be more afraid and contemptuous of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan than they will of Donald Trump.
My understanding is that Nancy Pelosi can’t stand them and that the Democratic leadership is aghast that four women with no experience and representing just a few districts are the tail wagging the Democratic dog.
Below is an RNC video capitalizing on their actions and comments. There will be more, because they can’t help themselves. They make Maxine Waters, the previous face of the Democratic Party, seem like a sweet old lady.
Told on the view that she favors decriminalization, here’s what Kamala Harris said:
“That is not correct. I am not in favor decriminalizing . . uh, um, uh . . . We have to have a secure border, but I am in favor of saying that we’re not going to treat people who are undocumented and cross the border as criminals.”
So now you understand?
Also, she was helped by busing, but maybe she doesn’t favor it now. You know. It’s always best to be on both sides of an issue so then everyone will like you.
Man, this guy just gets worse and worse. Even the Democrats are onto him, aware that he’s an empty suit that will take years more of experience to fill. He’s nowhere in the polls. What a pandering idiot.
Below are a few of your favorite white supremacists. Evil people, to be sure. Probably Trump fans.
President Trump didn’t raise a lot of money last time, and he still won. This time, he’s going to rake in plenty. According to Paul Bedard at the Washington Examiner: Republican donor enthusiasm is reaching new levels more than a year before the presidential election, sparking wild predictions that President Trump and the Republican National… Continue Reading
Let’s face it. By seeking to decriminalize illegal border crossings and abolish detention centers, Democrats are advocating an open border with Mexico. This is bad news for the country. Democrats have lost their minds on immigration. But it’s certainly good news for the reelection prospects of President Trump, who was won the White House in… Continue Reading
Democrats cannot possibly attack President Trump for lying and nominate Joe Biden. Biden’s problem with racial issues is not just that he has consorted with segregationists and opposed busing, as Kamala Harris enjoyed noting in the Democratic debate. It’s worse. He made up a whole career in the civil rights movement. He lied about it… Continue Reading
A desperate Joe Biden is already contradicting himself as he tries to put the pieces back together after getting taking apart by Kamala Harris. According to the Washington Examiner: Joe Biden sought to reverse damage inflicted at the Democratic debate by California Sen. Kamala Harris over his decades-old anti-busing efforts. Harris on Thursday night had… Continue Reading
