Trump Closes In on Biden, Sanders and is Beating Warren: Politico/Consult Poll

From the Morning Consult:

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.

Trump Repeatedly Sexually Harassed Ted Cruz, Saying He’d “Do Anything”

President Trump repeatedly and gruesomely sexually harassed Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, White House Dossier has learned, sending out tweets in January 2016 suggesting that Cruz would have sex with Goldman Sachs and that Cruz and Jeb Bush would use their bodies to maintain political power.

The shocking harassment was repeated Tuesday when some of the most profound minds in journalism and politics recognized similar language in a widely criticized tweet Trump made about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

In that tweet, Trump alleged Gillibrand would “do anything” – “anything,” obviously, including sex – for his campaign contributions back when he was in the private sector.*

*No double entendre intended by use of the term “private sector.”

Shockingly, Trump used the very same language in reference to Cruz and Jeb Bush.

Some astute observers noticed Trump’s use of the term “begging” – in quotes – with respect to Gillibrand, phrasing which obviously somehow has something to do with sex. White House Dossier can now reveal that Trump in fact used the same term in July 2013 when he accused the Obama administration of offering to have sex with Russia in order to secure the release of Edward Snowden.

Fortunately, within hours of Trump’s sexist tweet about Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, a Native American senator from the state of Massachusetts, picked up on the insult and tweeted that Gillibrand would not be “slut shamed.”

White House Dossier, which prides itself on performing accountability – I mean doing accountability – I mean, oh forget it – will continue to monitor Trump’s tweets for sexy language.

Oops: Orchestra Strikes Up as Obama Toasts the Queen

Notice that as Obama stumbles a bit in his toast – probably because he’s set the script down on the table and can barely see it – the orchestra figures he’s done and starts to play.

This would never have happened if TOTUS was in the house.

Anyway, what are we doing toasting queens in the first place? Gosh, I guess the monarchy looks good on Britain, but every time I hear a U.S. president having to accomodate royalty by talking about “Your majesty this” or “Your majesty that” I want to throw something out the window. Anything.

Like, if she says something, or walks across the room, is it by definition “majestic?”

“You eat your salad so majestically, your majesty.”

At least Elizabeth isn’t actually in charge, like the feudal chieftains of the Middle East and elsewhere.
