A new poll of registered Democrats has Hillary Clinton as their top choice for the 2020 Democratic Party presidential nomination — and she’s not even running. The online Harris Poll survey released by the Center for American Political Studies at Harvard found that Clinton placed first with 21% of the vote, followed closely by Vice President Joe Biden at 20%, Senator Bernie Sanders at 12%, Senator Elizabeth Warren at 9% and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg at 7%.It polled 1,859 voters and was conducted between November 27 and 29 of this year.

Something is a lil strange about this. The poll was taken 11/27 - 11/29 and is just now seeing daylight? Then again, If Hillary is involved we all know everything is on the up & up, don't we?

People keep telling me I'm nuts, but I have been saying all along that it is going to be a rematch. No clear dem candidate going into the convention, hung first ballot, and Hillary calls in all her markers to take it on the second ballot. It has bee the rigged plan right from the start. they just don't learn. This time will be a Trump landslide, a rout, 30% plus of the black vote to Trump and the House will swing back to Republican majority on his coat tails.

It’s pretty easy to be the front runner when there are more than a dozen A** Clowns running. She only got 21% and that is after she was the shoo-in the last election. The real surprise is not she is the front runner,it’s how little support she actually has!

A rematch between Sir Edmund and Donald Trump has been a democrat wet dream since November 6, 2016 when they all went loopy, with her winning, of course. The odds are about as high as Moochelle Obama getting a Ph D in physics or Rosie O'Donnell achieving 120 lbs without falling into a wood chipper.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. The democrats should never have listened to the big-money that's pushing impeachment because that made PRESIDENT Trump hit back, hard. Hillarity, at this point, wants to stay inconspicuous and hopes things blow over. They won't. She has been hip deep in the coup along with Obama, and Trump is taking names. Amazing that Nanny Bloomberg has already jumped to fifth place in the poll. Just shows what money can do.

FTA:Pollsters also surveyed respondents without Clinton in the race — and Biden came out first, with 29% of the vote, followed by Sanders at 16% and Warren at 13%. Sanders and Warren's totals don't change too much with Hillary in or out of the race. Most of her support comes from Biden followers, who are apparently dissatisfied with him as frontrunner.

What a loser party. How can anyone call themselves a democrat now and look themselves in the mirror. People can't be that stupid. Hilary belongs in jail, along with her husband. The big question is why aren't they? If she runs, there will be massive voter fraud. She just didn't cheat enough last time to pull it off - won't make that mistake twice.

The current candidates aren't worth considering. Those that selected Biden hopes he gets elected because he can remember where the hell he is. Bernie is a solid socialist democrat that will destroy the Constitution. Warren has plenty of crazy ideas that will never work and will stand on TV and rip up the Constitution so everyone can see that she is in charge.

Public support for impeachment is only at 42 per cent as the House continues to move forward with filing two articles against Donald Trump, a poll revealed Sunday.A few recent polls have shown a slight decrease from those support the proceedings, but most surveys also reveal Americans are very split on the matter. The CBS News/YouGov poll conducted December 11-13 shows while 42 per cent support impeachment and removal when the ordeal ultimately reaches the Senate next month, the exact same percentage of respondents are against it. Of the more than 4,500 Americans polled, 22 per cent said the Senate

The symbol, which is formed by making a circle with the forefinger and the thumb, has been considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a white supremacist symbol, although it had long been considered the symbol for OK.

But Edsall has apparently cracked under the stress of defending his fellow Americans from his radically “woke” elite peers, and he claimed on December 11: [Donald] Trump’s genius in 2016 lay in his willingness — indeed, his eagerness — to openly and aggressively unleash the forces of racial and ethnic hostility that Republican elites

By the time Harvey Milk's supervisors in the US Navy officially questioned him about his sexuality, he had graduated from officer school and served as a diving officer on a submarine rescue ship during the Korean War. Then his superiors caught him in a park that was popular with gay men, his nephew said. The sighting raised questions about Milk's sexual orientation in an era when the military banned gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Milk was forced to resign. In a move that signalled an about-face on the issue of gay rights, the Navy began to construct the USNS Harvey Milk

Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom. Recently, the cretins at TIME, which shockingly still exists in 2019, named her “Person of the Year.” (Snip) In 2029, after the world hasn’t ended but her usefulness has, she’ll be a Jeopardy question and probably shacked up with an unemployed performance artist named Björn in an Oslo suburb. Fun fact: “Greta Thunberg” is Swedish for “Cindy Sheenhan.”

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).
Beto O’Rourke Decides

Texas - Beto O’Rourke isn’t running for Senate again, and Democrats who have unusually high hopes for Texas in 2020 are facing an unsettled landscape. There’s no clear frontrunner among a dozen Democrats challenging Republican incumbent John Cornyn. None have raised big money and most candidates remain widely unknown. O’Rourke narrowly lost to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year and his presidential bid flamed out in November. Democrats urged the former El Paso congressman to run again for Senate, but the deadline to get on the 2020 ballot in Texas came and went this week.

Last Thursday afternoon I boarded an Amtrak Acela train from Washington, D.C. to New York. While in D.C., I enjoyed spending time at the Trump International Hotel where people were happy - not just because of the holidays, but because of where they were, surrounded by people of like mind.In particular, the hotel lobby bar on Wednesday night was filled with festive people who had just left the White House Chanukah party at which Trump had signed the Executive Order on Combatting Anti-Semitism.

I'm starting to watch the reaction to this Tessa Majors murder case like a slo-mo car crash. I noted the other day that the New York Times was pretty obnoxious to the Barnard University college student who was murdered in a dangerous park outside Columbia University, largely by trying to define victim's entire life by her green hair and liking for punk rock, as if kids don't go through stages. Kind of harsh to define someone that way at the grand sendoff... And far from being 'worldly' as the Times quoted someone as saying, those kinds of things are childish, and yes, the victim was in fact very young and naive.

Touching the thumb and index finger to make a circle, with the remaining three fingers held outstretched, is a gesture that people around the world have made for centuries, mostly in positive contexts. It is used for several purposes in sign languages, and in yoga as a symbol to demonstrate inner perfection.It figures in an innocuous made-you-look game.

Whatever its legal merit or lack thereof, the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate is a political show trial that is intended to affect the upcoming presidential election for sure. So let’s consider the political implications, not the legal merits. The latest news is that the Republican leadership is thinking about trying to vote to acquit President Trump without a trial or hearing any witnesses. That has never been done, but it would be a smart move politically. Despite the president’s statements that he wants a full trial in the Senate, an impeachment trial is unlikely to help President Trump win reelection.
