#MAGAA? Trump Forced to Use “Make America Great Again,” Again

So much for “Keep America Great.” Throw out those new hats and get the old ones of the closet.

Behind the Polls: Trump’s Voters Far More Enthusiastic Than Biden’s

Joe Biden leads in most polls, but that doesn’t mean much. Democrats are not excited about their sleepy, mumbling standard-bearer. According to the Washington Examiner: According to the latest Emerson College Polling’s survey, Democrats appear to be throwing in the towel. While Biden leads President Trump in a head-to-head matchup, 48%-42%, when voters overall were asked who they really think will win in November, it’s a

Trump Rolls Out Campaign Theme: I Built a Great Economy, I Can Do It Again

This is how President Trump is going to frame his reelection campaign. The economic growth under his stewardship was derailed by the coronavirus, and he is the one who can put things back on track.

It Turns Out Sanders Did Not Actually Withdraw from the Race

He’s not campaign as much, maybe. And he knows he can’t win. But he is still very much in this, as Kimberly Strassel notes in the Wall Street Journal: Sanders said he nonetheless would . . . “stay on the ballot in all remaining states and continue to gather delegates,” so as to exert “significant influence” over the party. He also declined to promise he’ll

Video || Bernie Decides to Stay in the Race

You knew that was coming. The good news is, they’ll have a debate Sunday night. I want to see how Biden does, and whether he has the mental endurance to go one-on-one with someone. It’s important to know that someone who could be president can do this. I like the slo-mo at the beginning of this. Makes him look frightening. You know, in other ways

Biden Way Ahead of Sanders in Michigan Primary Polls

The primary is Tuesday, and it’s almost a must-win for Bernie Sanders, but he is trailing Joe Biden badly in two recent polls. Worth remembering, though, that polls showed Sanders well behind Hillary Clinton there right before the 2016 primary, and he pulled out a win anyway on the strength of a surge in younger voters.

In a statement, he did not say specifically that his money is still in, as promised, just that he’d keep fighting to defeat President Trump. He also endorsed Joe Biden.
