Joe Biden continues to be the first choice among Democratic voters across the 2020 primary states holding contests through Super Tuesday. However, rivals Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris are gaining on him and have seen increases in the number of voters at least considering them, suggesting they could have more room to gain going forward. (Snip) Respondents were given a list of candidate descriptions, and when asked to choose which candidate seemed the most "passionate," Warren and Sanders tested highest on this measure (28% each), followed by Harris (23%). Fewer Democratic voters put Biden at the top of the pack

Slow Joe clings to 25% of Dems and doesn't seem to have much upside. The 3 left-wingers combined capture 50%.

Quite amazing. The Dems have no viable candidate. They are looking at electoral disaster. This country is not ready (yet) for open borders and communism and this is what they are offering. Prepare yourselves for the most blatant voter fraud ever experienced in this country. It's coming and the Democrats know that's their only hope.

I'm old enough to remember the old game of 'Electric Football" , which was a vibrating field upon which the playing pieces moved in random, unpredictable directions. It was almost as effective and scientifically believable as today's 'art' of political forecasting which we must endure every two years.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib said the federal minimum wage should be raised to $20 an hour. "Big fights like this one, $15. When we started it, it should have been $15," the Michigan Democrat said in a video posted by America Rising on Monday. "Now I think it should be $20 ... It should be $20 an hour. $18-20 an hour." Tlaib said the higher minimum was because the cost of "a lot of things" has gone up. (Snip) "These corporations are making billions off of our blood and sweat," then-candidate Tlaib said.

For months, Sen. Amy Klobuchar’s (D-MN) presidential campaign made regular payments to its staff and vendors, with varying daily expenditures that never exceeded $335,000. But on April 1, 2019, the campaign’s spending exploded. Whereas Klobuchar’s campaign spent an average of about $55,000 per day through the end of June, according to FEC filings, it dropped a whopping $624,000 on the first day of April, including a $300,000 payment to the campaign’s digital vendor. That massive uptick in expenses was likely due to the fact that April 1 marked the beginning of the new fundraising quarter. By putting off the payments

A Georgia state congresswoman ignited the #IStandWithErica trend on social media this weekend after she recorded an emotional video claiming a man told her to "go back to where she came from" at a grocery store — and now the man accused of the bigoted verbal attack has responded. State Representative Erica Thomas, an African American lawmaker in Georgia's 39th District, teared up in the video as she recounted a Friday incident at a Cobb County Publix grocery store, where she said Eric Sparkes verbally attacked her. But as Atlanta's WSB-TV prepared to interview her outside the Publix Saturday afternoon, Sparkes

NEW YORK — ESPN is making sure that its employees know there is not change in the network's policy to avoid talking about politics unless it intersects with sports after radio talk show host Dan Le Batard criticized President Donald Trump and his recent racist comments and ESPN itself on the air this week. The reminder went out Friday to all employees, including Le Batard, according to an ESPN employee who spoke on condition of anonymity Saturday because the person was not authorized to speak publicly about personnel matters.

Senator Bernie Sanders on Friday called for the abolition of the electoral college in response to a new analysis showing that President Donald Trump could win re-election in 2020 while still losing the popular vote by as many as five million ballots. Trump won the 2016 election despite coming up nearly three million ballots short of Hillary Clinton in the popular vote. His electoral college victory in that race was still comfortable, as analyst Dave Wasserman noted in a new projection of possible discrepancies between the electoral outcomes and popular support in 2020. Sanders has previously said that it's "hard

House Democrats are hoping Robert S. Mueller III illuminates potential obstruction of justice by President Trump and gives credence to their claim of an unlawful president for millions of Americans who will decide on Trump’s political future. Mueller’s much-anticipated testimony Wednesday is a pivotal moment for congressional investigators, holding promise — and peril — for Democrats as they finally get their chance to question a reluctant witness about his nearly two-year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the president tried to derail the inquiry. Democrats expect Mueller to describe in detail at least five of 10 episodes of

The corn here is as high as a candidate's eye — at least the shorter ones like Pete Buttigieg and Julian Castro — though the harvest is a bit late because of heavy spring rains. Weather hasn't affected presidential aspirants, however. Democrats have produced a bumper crop. While I can confirm that Iowa is a nice place to visit, I do wonder if it’s really the best place to conduct intense presidential politics for over a year. Is Iowa sufficiently reflective of America, or the Democratic Party, to wield such enormous power in the presidential process? According to research by

As dollar stores sweep across America, they are facing growing scrutiny from opponents who argue that discount chains stifle local competition and limit poor communities' access to healthy food. Dollar stores have never been more popular. Yet a wave of cities and towns have passed laws curbing the expansion of Dollar General and Dollar Tree, which bought Family Dollar in 2015. The companies are the two largest dollar store operators in the country, combining for more than 30,000 stores throughout the United States, up from under 20,000 a decade ago. By comparison, Walmart, America's largest retailer, has 4,700 US stores.

President Trump’s approval ratings are under water in national polls. His position for re-election, on the other hand, might not be quite so bleak. His advantage in the Electoral College, relative to the national popular vote, may be even larger than it was in 2016, according to an Upshot analysis of election results and polling data. That persistent edge leaves him closer to re-election than one would think based on national polls, and it might blunt any electoral cost of actions like his recent tweets attacking four minority congresswomen. For now, the mostly white working-class Rust Belt states, decisive in

London - The CEO of German industrial giant Siemens says that President Donald Trump is becoming a symbol of intolerance following his attacks on four female members of Congress. "I find it depressing that the most important political office in the world is turning into the face of racism and exclusion," Joe Kaeser said Saturday on Twitter. Kaeser's remarks are the most prominent criticism from the business world in reaction to Trump's rally last week in North Carolina.

Georgia Democrat Rep. Hank Johnson accused Republicans at a hearing earlier this month of purposely mispronouncing former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s last name to “besmirch” him. At a Judiciary Committee hearing on July 12, Hank said that he has heard more and more Republicans calling the former special counsel “[Mew-ler],” instead of “[Muller].” “I’ve heard more and more Republicans starting to pronounce Director Mueller’s name as ‘[Mew-ler].'” I’ve been hearing that over the past few weeks. Is that some kind of Republican attempt to besmirch Director Mueller?” Johnson asked.

There are currently no nationwide demographic trends that “favor Republicans” in future elections, Axios reports.The nation’s shifting demography — spurred primarily from mass legal immigration where more than 1.2 million foreign nationals are added to the U.S. population every year — is set to make it increasingly difficult for Republican candidates to win statewide and national elections, Axios’s Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen note: The single biggest threat to Republicans’ long-term viability is demographics.

A statement released by Fox at the time noted “an insensitive remark to an African-American employee” who dealt with information-technology issues. “I’ve decided to use your radio show to be the first time I will say this to anybody, and that is in my view that I was completely set up by someone, and my guess

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday warned that an economic crash was coming and said she had a plan to stop it. Pointing to high debt and a sagging manufacturing sector, Ms. Warren said the economy teeters on the edge of disaster. “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down. And the Trump administration’s reckless behavior is increasing the odds of just such a shock,” the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in an op-ed in Medium. The alarm took a swipe at the strong economy that is President Trump’s chief argument for reelection. It also highlighted Ms. Warren’s agenda of wealth redistribution.

The Democrats intend to steal the presidency in 2020. It is the only way they can “win.” They’ve learned this. They’ve lived it. And without a decisive turnout in 2020 they believe they have mastered the process. If you thought that Bush vs. Gore, or the Georgia and Florida 2018 recounts were ugly, keep your powder dry. 2020 will be the worst yet. All the signs point to this, assuming they can actually find a candidate. Once they do however, the largest scale assault on our free elections ever attempted will be unleashed.
