What's worse is that now every Trump witness is going to want to testify behind closed doors.
Seems so :0(
given their history I don't think anyone is as well positioned as warren to kick Biden's ass
If it come down to Biden vs Bernie, Bernie will lose as things currently stand because Bernie will win black voters and older voters, and those demographics are worth far, far more as part of a political coalition because they're just plain bigger.https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-the-polls-missed-bernie-sanders-michigan-upset/
Faiz is essentially making the argument in that article.
Well it's great that I'm not making that argument.
I'm not saying that people shouldn't try to model the future. I'm saying that no one knows exactly what kind of youth turnout will be. 2016 was transformative in injecting energy in young voters. Data from 2016 and earlier will not necessarily capture that.
Reminder that Faiz's statement is in reference to a Biden vs Bernie in which there absolutely is a generational divide in opinion.
One of the core strategic pillars for the Sanders campaign is getting the highest young voters turnout ever. And Sanders have said multiple times that it needs to be even higher than 2018.
Past data is relevant to a point. There hasnt been a Black President until Obama. There has never been a Woman or Chinese/Indian-descent or a twin either but there might very well be one elected next year.
I'm super alright with his dumb ass thinking that he already has this sewn up. He can just keep spending his work days watching TV, giving halfhearted attention to the campaign, and get totally blindsided.
you think warren can be competitive enough with black voters?If it come down to Biden vs Bernie, Bernie will lose as things currently stand because Bernie will win black voters and older voters, and those demographics are worth far, far more as part of a political coalition because they're just plain bigger.
Candidates hoping for a surge In younger voters to save them is just them hoping Lucy doesn't pull the football THIS time.
I don’t think it should be underestimated how much the early press influences how voters vote in later contests
I'm already exhausted at the thought of the amount of infighting that is going to spawn from when we ultimately lose the 2020 election to Trump, only to have everyone say 'See! We should've impeached when we could've!'
Was going for snark (because of Sanders' messaging/campaign issues) and whiffed there.
I actually have no idea. It's a known unknown to me. Sanders, Pete- no. Harris, Biden- yes. Warren? I got nothing.
I really do think she is the most detestable person in the Senate. Her game is awful.
Remember when Olympia Snowe's supposed hang-up with the ACA was the public option, and tried to find ways to compromise with Democrats to include a version of it, until they finally just chucked the whole thing and she still wouldn't fucking vote for it
Pretty much. I would add that we’ve listed to these people enough and at this point being the bigger person is hurting you more by letting them spout nonsense without any actual repercussions.
Yep. Hillary had been there and been burned. She's known what they really are since about 1994.I keep thinking about during the 08 primary battle, when Hillary hit Obama hard about how the GOP is intransigent and you have to fight them tooth and nail, while Obama was preaching peace and love and bipartisanship, and Hillary got knocked for it at the time for being mean to him.
And here we are...
I was listening to a lengthy interview with AOC held back in April. She said she wasnt going to name drop anyone but that she was friends with some Republicans. She said one in particular came into her office and questioned her extensively. They actually became good friends and agree a lot on policy. She said that the individual was this starch, proud, nationalistic, and very conservative. However, they actually agreed on a lot of things. That this individual hated Walmart and thought they were ruining the country. They were just very afraid to speak up on some of their beliefs because of the repercussions. There were a lot more things she talked about in that situation. Based on what she said, I'm starting to think she was talking about Ted Cruz. She said she wouldnt reveal their identity so as not to jeopardize their reelection chances.
I've been waiting for movement on this. Yasssssss
Even so, this fucker needs to be in jail. I'd rather have a relatively law-abiding R than a flagrant criminal R.
"Nobody has done more than me for _________"
You mean transcripts NOT to read.
Indeed. IA and NH are probably the single biggest reason early national primary polls are wrong so often.I don’t think it should be underestimated how much the early press influences how voters vote in later contests
Ie I don’t think Trump would have won had he not won NH. The “loser” narrative would have started after losing both the first to states.
If Biden wins IA, NH, and SC the race is over regardless how many voters or what percentage he wins them by
